When you back our Kickstarter for a level that contains one of our shirts, those are printed by hand in house in our Portland workshop. Here’s the beginning of the magic… printing positives that will be exposed with the screens that have been coated with a photosensitive emulsion. This results in the stencil that we’ll be pushing each of the shirts colored inks through to make the full design. It’s a tedious manual process, but the results are much better and more durable than any digitally printed shirt. Back that campaign at http://bit.ly/kickcthulhu22

There’s a few of us here who might enjoy this latest offering from Sandy Petersen!

Hastur has risen and he's coming for you! Get our new Hastur the Risen One! figure, the largest one we've ever made!

The figure naturally comes with rules to use Hastur in Cthulhu Wars (there's always space for more Cthulhu Wars) but also in Planet Apocalypse, The Gods War, Eternal Adversary, and Hyperspace.

There are two versions, the regular PVC plastic (same material as all our miniatures), or a high-quality, highly detailed resin edition.

Beware! Your very sanity is in peril … BOTH ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITIONS and will NOT be produced ever again.

When they're gone, they're gone! (Probably by the time you finish reading this — so hurry!)

H. P. Lovecraft passed on this day 85 years ago, and today we raise a cup of tea in his memory! He broke a path for modern horror writers to tread, to make their own mark on literature, movies, art, and music. Many thanks to the Old Gent for giving us the gift of Cosmic Horror. We strive to open the doors of the genre wide and invite all voices and points of view to join us in peering into the void, to discover what wonders lie within!

One for all
This movie might be worth consideration.
Cannot wait for it to get colder!
Will the posters and shirts from this festival appear on Arkham Bazaar? I try to get one every year and don’t wanna miss this years one!
Where can I find the Virtual Mall of Cthulhu?
Are full Festival streaming passes available yet? I can't find them on the kickstarter page. Or at the Hollywood Theater.
Anyone seen indie Lovecraft movie "The Letter" filmed in Illinois
I'm going to say this both here, as well as your main page. You folks are rock stars. When something like this goes wrong, and things are out of your control, it can be awful. You get messaged by everyone, over and over again, about the same problem that you are already desperately working on. I get that. Throughout all of this, you have been calm, cool, collected, and (most of all) effective. If I had ANY doubts about whether or not I'd be backing the KS for the festival later this year, they have been washed away by your professionalism and calm authority. I only wish there was a digital "Lurker" issue for this event, but hey, maybe for the main con? Again, I know this isn't your first rodeo - and you've been doing a great job with the festival for a while, but leaping into this new frontier and fixing issues on the fly while preparing for a livestream?
