In 2021, Call of Cthulhu turned 40 years old! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’re looking at some of the print products that came out in 2022 to celebrate that mind-blasting anniversary — the sinister-looking 40th Anniversary edition of the Keeper Rulebook, the Kickstarted reprint of the first edition Call of Cthulhu box set with its accompanying stack of scenario books and, mostly, the advice-filled Keeper Tips book, full of little anonymous koan-like thoughts on how to run good games. (Stu forgot all about the revamped 40th Anniversary Starter Kit and its handsome new cover, to his eternal shame. Whoops!)

Speaking of Noble Knight, our friends there are organizing a union and we support their efforts whole-heartedly! We’re firm believers in the non-controversial idea that all workers should be fairly compensated by their employers. Unionization and collective bargaining are an excellent way for workers to ensure they get that fair share. For updates on the process, follow the union Twitter and put “We Roll Together” in the notes field of your online orders to show your support! (And just to be clear, we’re speaking from the heart on this – no one is paying us for our solidarity)

Thanks for highlighting Noble Knight’s employees Unionization efforts. Sadly, Noble Knight seems to want to union bust instead of support workers rights. I’ve unsubscribed from them and will be buying my gaming needs elsewhere, which is unfortunate because they have some amazing things. To that end, I’d like to ask if you stop partnering with them until they support their employees right to unionize.
The workers have requested folks NOT boycott for now, for the record!
