7. SEP News
Covert Forces Redux has entered the editing stage. The pics have been compiled. Once the editing is finished, it'll head to layout and you should be seeing it in the second quarter of this year.

Work has begun on Election Day, an adventure for release through the "Modern Dispatch" subscription package, and through SEP. This is a short adventure set in Albenistan.

The writer of Treasure Chest Unlocked: Gems, Craig Churchill, has handed in some rough drafts for Treasure Chest Unlocked: Incense. It is still in the early stages, but all indications are promising.

No Bloopers this time due to time constraints. There weren't that many good ones anyway.

. . . as they say.

Yeah, we're done recording episode 10, and it's in the editing stage now. Editing can be a lengthy process, so don't expect to see episode 10 up until the week of April 27.

Hope that's not too long of a wait. See you then!

A)Horror on the Orient Express Audio Game - Full Steam Ahead!
For those who enjoyed Yog-Sothoth's last Call of Cthulhu audio campaign, the Masks of Nyarlathotep, well here's the beginning of a new one for 2007. The Bradford players have got on board the Cthulhu train again as they make their way into the classic Horror on the Orient Express campaign from Chaosium.

The episodes are available in MP3 format, but this time are released in even higher quality, 96KBPS stereo (twice that of before) and feature 3D Surround Sound, so you can hear where the players are around the games table, as if you were in the middle of it all. (Try Episode 01 on headphones for full effect.)

So, feel free to follow along as the new party receive a phone call and an old friend asks a small favour...

You can find a selection of materials in support of the audio game via: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/express including handouts, party photos and initial character sheets, so jump on board! You can find more information at http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=358
