Do we have a rough estimate on how often we should expect new Missions to become available? I'm planning a campaign starting in January for 20-25 players and curious to know how many of the Missions might be ready for play by then.

2 Questions!

1) Any plans to release the Living Campaign mods in Savage Worlds format?

2) What's the max number of players allowed per table? I see 4 pregens, is it possible to run a table of 5 or 6? (Some living campaigns I've participated in allow up to 7 with a concordant increase in challenge rating.)

Have a few things - first is that the campaign continues to be 6th Edition. Will that be changing, as 7th Ed has been out for many years and new players will be buying that edition? As a 35 year CoC Keeper, I can easily convert on the fly, but having it updated or at least rev'ed for Pulp would be great.

Secondly, as I'm new to Modiphius "Living" campaigns, although have played/GM'ed many other Living games, is there I spot I should check out for details on how the Living campaign mechanics work? Character creation guidelines, reporting mechanisms?

Thirdly, while I do not regularly run Savage Worlds, I love the fact the Achtung! is dual stats and it really does expand the setting, so I vote for dual stats in the Living game as well.

After having read the adventure, I'm also down for having it presented with Savage Worlds stat blocks as I primarily run SW instead of CoC.

It's great to see this sort of support for the game. Whilst the epic campaign books are great, a lot of us don't have time to ever get to the end of one. Organising everyone's schedules is a huge problem that I see a lot of people mentioning around the web. Having smaller, connected missions that can be played independently of each other in 1-3 sessions is far more appealing, for me at least.

I'm also going to jump on the Savage Worlds bandwagon. Personally, I feel the pulpiness of the SW rules fits more with the AC setting and we've certainly enjoyed playing it with the SW rules.

@jonothan, New missions will be every couple of months to allow time for people to complete them.
@brian, 1 I have passed your suggestion on to the elder gods, who have told me they will look into it.
2. As many people as you are compfortable with, although you may want to fiddle with the challenges a bit to upgrade them for more people. We're not real finicky about how you play. After all, while some of us may be wizards, none of us live on a coast.
@petri, while we already have quite a few miniatures available, rest assured there are more to come.

@Oberon,Our plans are to stick with CoC 6 for now. We will start rolling out conversions to 7 next year. Having said that, feel free to convert whatever you like for Your group.

Follow the rules in the book for character creation. There aren't really any complicated rules that were going to force on you. Anything supplemental that you might need will be sent to you.

I have shared your input for SW with thr powers that be.

Ditto on the CoC7. I use Roll20 for my CoC campaigns and have upgraded all my material to 7ed. I can do the changes manually, but getting Achtung Cthulhu up to 7ed would be of great benefit and save a lot of time. I ran AC! 6ed on Roll20 all last year with great success and look forward to doing same in 7ed. I look forward to participating in the Living Campaign. I did so with Chaosium's Time to Harvest and it was a big hit with my gaming group. Two months per adventure sounds like a good interval. Thanks.

For me it will be CoC7 with the Pulp Cthulhu supplement. IMO 7th "fixed" my personal issues with CoC/BRP and PC added just the right amount of heroic action and tougher PCs.

And the conversion from 6th to 7th is really simple.

Since I never play SW anymore, CoC stats are critical.

I shall be using this with FATE Core. :)

One thing I've spotted- Carlton Smythe is (of course) a Wing Commander.

Commander is a naval rank.

As regards his background, at 63 in 1943 he would have been Army then RFC in his youth and "the early years of the century"

Cranwell would not have been in existence until after the Great War

Sorry to nit pick chaps.

From raf.mod.uk

Cranwell was taken over from the Royal Navy by the RAF on its formation in 1918, for officer cadet training. On 5 Feb 1920 the RAF College opened to its first intake and it fulfils this role today as the world’s first air force college. Today RAFC Cranwell supports the flying task for No 3 Flying Training School (3FTS) which provides elementary flying training for pilots from the RAF, RN and Army using the Grob Tutors of Nos 16(R), 57(R), 115(R), 674(AAC) and 703(NAS) Sqns as well as advanced flying training for multi-engine pilots on the Beech King Air B200 aircraft of No 45(R) Sqn. No 45(R) Sqn also provides generic training for all RAF Weapon Systems Operators (WSOps) and advanced specialist training for those selected for the fixed wing Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) and Air Transport / Air to Air Refuelling (ATAAR) fleets. RAFC Cranwell also hosts HQ Central Flying School (CFS), Ground Training Squadron, General Service Training Squadron, RAF Recruiting and a unit of the Meteorological office. It is also the home to a broad range of lodger units including HQ Air Cadets, the Band of the RAF College and HQ No1 RAFP Wing. RAF Syerston (Nottinghamshire), home of the HQ for the RAF No 2 Flying Training School and Central Gliding School; RAF Woodvale (Merseyside); and RAF Barkston Heath, are satellite airfields under the command of the Commandant of RAFC Cranwell.
