In Unspeakable! we talk all about new and upcoming Cthulhu Mythos games and stuff that our fellow fans of Cthulhu Mythos games might love. Since this is our first episode it rambles a bit, but bear with us. We’ll have some great guests to keep things lively.
In our debut episode we interview John Scott Tynes, who founded The Unspeakable Oath back in 1990.
As the founder of Pagan Publishing he oversaw such acclaimed Call of Cthulhu sourcebooks as Delta Green, Walker in the Wastes, Mortal Coils, Coming Full Circle, Realm of Shadows and The Golden Dawn, and the funny Cthulhu-themed miniatures game The Hills Rise Wild! Tynes co-wrote Wizards of the Coast’s adaptation of Call of Cthulhu with Monte Cook and many of Pagan Publishing’s writers.
Tynes has been a videogame designer and producer for the past few years, starting with Flying Labs’ Pirates of the Burning Sea. He is now a lead producer at Xbox Live Arcade.
Like so many good things, it all started with Winona Ryder.
