This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’re going back to witch-haunted Arkham, Massachusetts by way of Chaosium’s latest edition of the Arkham sourcebook (previously known as Arkham Unveiled, H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham and The Compact Arkham Unveiled). This is a ground-up renovation of Keith Herber’s original text by Mike Mason and it is everything you’d want from such a project. The old stuff feels new, the new stuff blends in, the whole package feels fresh and exciting. A new street map! A genuine newspaper! A social reputation system! Ghouls! What more could you want?

Stu’s pretty sure that at one point in the show, he says The Lurker at the Threshold when he meant “The Thing on the Doorstep.” His confusion is understandable.Also, hilariously, Stu’s brain has made up that Witches’ Hollow was included in original Arkham Unveiled. Brains are weird!
