Sixtystone Press has got to the stage in its development where it needs a permanent playtest group that it can ask to run through it’s planned releases. Previously playtesting has been successfully done on an ad-hoc basis.
As a member of the group, you will receive development manuscripts and will be expected to run through them and report your group’s experience of the material. All of the group’s members will have sign an perpetual NDA to participate. Your group will have to be using 7th edition CoC rules as that is what Sixtystone is developing for now.
In return the playtest group will see new material early, and the playtest leader will receive a paper copy of the final product. All members of the group will receive PDFs of the material if they wish, and the group’s members will be credited in the final product.
If your group is interested in participating, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Sixtystone Playtesting Group”. And we’re take it from there.
Sixtystone Press’s first Kickstarter has entered the last 21 hours of funding.
The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion funded in under three hours, and has now garnered over 700 backers and over £32,000 in funding.
The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion offers backers the chance to own an enlarged version of the Companion in PDF, softback and hardback formats. The Companion has been enlarged by one set of clue sheets, one scenario, four extra pre-gen characters and eight articles, achieved by stretch goals.

A long time ago I used to edit Worlds of Cthulhu magazine, published by Pegasus Spiel.
Each issue was accompanied by PDFs of the handouts in the magazine. These have long disappeared from Pegasus Spiel’s website. But thanks to the wonders of the Wayback Machine they are still available.
The handouts for issues #1 to 5 can be found here: https://web.archive.org/web/20090705130828/http://www.worldsofcthulhu.com/outtakes.html
The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion Kickstarter has entered the last 48 hours of its campaign.
The KS can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/482503977/masks-of-nyarlathotep-companion
The KS is the only place you can pick up a PDF or print copy of the Companion. All net profits from the KS go towards the running costs of www.yog-sothoth.com.
Just a quick note just to say that the Masks Companion is now in its last week of fund-raising.
We’ve met our funding target and we’ve breached numerous stretch goals that will enlarge the Shanghai and Australian chapters of the Companion.

Sixtystone Press in association with Innsmouth House Press is proud to announce the launching of the Masks of Nayarlathotep Companion Kickstarter this afternoon.
When released on the yog-sothoth.com website last year, the beta version of the Companion was downloaded over 50,000 times before it was withdrawn from general circulation.
The Kickstarter has been created in order to feed this demand and to raise funds to help with the running costs of yog-sothoth.com, the Internet’s première site for Lovecraft and Call of Cthulhu fans.
The Kickstarter will be the only place to acquire an updated version of the Companion in PDF and/or book formats.

Please check it and out and pledge if you like it.
Sixtystone Press is happy to announce the arrival of the long-awaited Investigator Weapons volume 2, Modern day for contemporary Call of Cthulhu games.
Hans-Christian Vortisch presents iconic, common and less-common weapons found in service yesterday, today and tomorrow for use by Investigators, armed authorities and the cultists they hunt.
Hans presents variant stats for all of the covered weapons, and Investigator Weapons 2 also summarises weapons rules from all editions of Call of Cthulhu including seventh edition, as well as Basic Role-playing games such as The Laundry, as well as providing optional rules for enhanced play.
A POD version will be available shortly and early purchasers will receive a voucher allowing them to get the POD version at the same discount as the future PDF+POD bundle, when the POD version is released.
A print run for games stores is also planned for 2015.
Happy New Year!
