Seminar:

Green Room – 15:30 – 16:30

Ken and Robin and Simon Talk About Stuff
Game gurus Kenneth Hite and Robin D. Laws are back, with Pelgrane Press publisher Simon Rogers in tow, to field your questions about interstellar threats, vampire spymasters, iron age drama, and the efficacy of shotguns vs. Cthulhu. Use your investigative abilities to interrogate them on Night’s Black Agents, Hillfolk, and their imminent podcast. This once in a lifetime opportunity comes but once a year!

Games:

Title: Fear in a Handful of Dust

System: Trail of Cthulhu

GM Name: Matthew Sanderson

Description: April 1935. Northern Texas. The Dust Bowl. A string of exotic artifacts have been appearing on the market. When an antique dealer turns up having met a gruesome end, it appears someone is determined to keep the origins of these items a secret. The police call in experts from the University of Texas to uncover what they can about these artifacts, but they aren’t the only ones following the trail of evidence. As the dust storms grow on the horizon, an ancient and malevolent force is about to move into the light…

We will also be running demos throughout the day.

New Releases

  • Night’s Black Agents Exclusive Dragonmeet Edition – this is a limited edition print of the [REDACTED] Edition of Night’s Black Agents, Ken Hite’s new vampire/spy thriller. It is only available at Dragonmeet.
  • Invasive Procedures, a truly horrific Fear Itself scenario from Gareth Hanrahan with Trail of Cthulhu conversion rules.
  • Lorefinder, also from Gareth Hanrahan, this is the first of (we hope) many GUMSHOE system mash ups. Lorefinder merges the GUMSHOE system with the Pathfinder roleplaying game.

At Dragonmeet last year, we released a simple print version of Bookhounds which sold out almost instantly. This year we’re continuing the tradition with Night’s Black Agents, Kenneth Hite’s superb new vampire spy thriller. This will be a simple, spartan design with a full colour cover and will be limited to 50 copies.

Dragonmeet this year will be on Saturday 26th November at Kensington Town Hall – more information and tickets here.

We’ve printed 50 copies of Book-Hounds as a pre-release version for Dragonmeet. We are accepting orders online solely for collection at Dragonmeet. They will be numbered, and signed by Ken Hite, who will be there.

You can download the bookmarked PDF straight away. The books are perfect bound, monochrome, with a colour cover.

If there are copies left after Dragonmeet, we’ll put them on sale by mail order.

You can reserve your copy here.

The final version is aimed for released in February
