Hello Kickstarter backers and fans of Call of Cthulhu!
Welcome to the Chaosium blog about Meghan (me) and Nick’s trip to Turkey. Here we will post images, notes, and ramblings about our discoveries.
Why the Heck are You Going to Turkey?
For those that don’t know, in August of 2012 Chaosium launched it’s first Kickstarter fundraiser for the reprint of the iconic game Horror on the Orient Express. We are very fortunate that we have such amazing fans, and we raised 1,000% of our goal, which allowed to offer great rewards for the fans that backed our fundraising effort.
With this reprint we are striving to be as authentic as possible with the look of the handouts and to create a magical gaming experience. We have experienced some difficulty obtaining images (even with the tremendous power of the internet), and so we have arranged meetings with various institutions in Istanbul. We hope to obtain images and details that will enhance the campaign.
When are You Going?
We will be departing from San Francico, CA, on January 2, 2013. Nick Nacario and myself (Meghan McLean) will be flying from SFO to Paris where we will have a crazy-long layover (where I may eat my weight in cheese), and then we’re off to Istanbul. We have a tight schedule to make the most of our short trip.
We will update the blog before our trip, documenting our preparations, and during the trip. While we are traveling we will be using mobile devices, so please excuse any typographical, syntactical, or grammatical errors.
Thank you for joining us on our journey.
