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

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the yog-sothoth.com website last year, the beta version of the Companion was downloaded over 50,000 times before it was withdrawn from general circulation.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.
The Kickstarter can be found here:
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!

The content of the book is unchanged from the Chronicle City release of 2012.
“It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire. For the cat is cryptic, and close to strange things which men cannot see. He is the soul of antique Aegyptus, and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroe and Ophir. He is the kin of the jungle’s lords, and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa. The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language; but he is more ancient than the Sphinx, and remembers that which she hath forgotten—H.P. Lovecraft, The Cats of Ulthar, 1920
Welcome to Cathulhu, the Call of Cthulhu alternative setting where feline sleuths investigate the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos.
Cats are mysterious, self-contained creatures. Both wild and domestic in nature, they are silent observers of all that goes on around them.
In Cathulhu, discover the secret life of the cat as a Dreamlands warrior and a Waking World sleuth. Cats are the secret allies of humanity in the fight against cosmic horror; confronting overlooked machinations orchestrated from the sewers, tracking down sorcerers and cultists in the Waking World, and taking the fight to Nyarlathotep’s minions in the Dreamlands with the Cat Armies.
Cathulhu contains full character generation information for creating feline characters, feline abilities, background information on the cult of Bast, a short bestiary of feline opponents and an introductory adventure, ‘The Black Cat’.
Cathulhu is fully compatible with Call of Cthulhu sixth edition rules.
Cathulhu is intended as an interlude to mainstream Call of Cthulhu games, and provides a different POV to the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. It can be played light-heartedly or seriously. The opponents of the feline investigators can range from dastardly rat-kings or mutant sewer lizards, to lone mad sorcerers, or all the way to a full-blown confrontation with the Cthulhu Mythos.
Cathulhu is the English-language version of Katzulhu, which first appeared in the German-language Cthuloide Welten magazine, #1 and #2, in 2001/2002. The Katzulhu rules were reprinted in 2009 to accompany the release of Pegasus spiele’s Dreamlands sourcebook.
Cathulhu was developed by Ingo Ahrens, Adam Crossingham and Daniel Harms from Ingo’s original Katzulhu, and was published in Worlds of Cthulhu magazine #4 in 2006. This edition is revised from the Worlds of Cthulhu version and includes additional information about Sabbat cats, and the cult of Bast through the ages.
