Cthulhu 101 with Jon Hook

Jon Hook is a podcaster and contributing writer to some of Chaosium’s contest adventure monographs. He co-hosts the new Miskatonic University Podcast; a podcast dedicated to the Call of Cthulhu role playing game. He’s author of a Cthulhu adventure soon-to-be-released by Goodman Games, and he’s currently working with Timeless Adventures on a Basic Roleplaying project set in WWII.

We talk about all things Cthulhu; the origins of the mythos, role playing games, board games, card games, fiction and movies.

    Generally you have great guests, and Mr. Hook was a great guest when he was speaking about the Call of Cthulhu game. However, he seemed totally unprepared for the background information and some major trivia questions that would have been obvious for a Lovecraft fan. I was annoyed that Mr. Hook did not know that HPL died in 1937 at the age of 47 and that he blanked on the name of the fictional port city of Innsmouth (a major locale) and that the Xbox game he was trying to recall was call “Dark Corners of the Earth”.
    Might I suggest that the next “expert” who appears on your excellent podcast (and I listen to each of them) prep with a list of questions that may be asked and that they make short visit to wikipedia before they are given a pop quiz.
    Please keep up the great work and keep ’em coming!

    More Dark Heresy please!

    Brady, thanks for the comment. Jon and I talked a couple of days ago and he actually said he facepalmed himself when he listened to the episode. It happens. Perhaps I should have paused the interview and done some editing, but I still think overall it was fun interview.

    And as for actual play episodes, I don’t think there will be any. Due to the inconsistency of my local game group, I just can’t plan for a weekly, or even bi weekly, episode of anything.

    Until the local group can meet regularly, I’m only able to do interviews. I’m glad you liked them, and sad to say I can’t offer more of them.
