Bret Kramer is Sentinel Hill Press, a licensed publisher of Call of Cthulhu gaming materials and other Lovecraftiana. They focus on Lovecraft Country, a setting for the CoC RPG based on that cluster of New England towns invented by Lovecraft – Arkham, Innsmouth, Dunwich, and Kingsport (to name the best known). They publish the Arkham Gazette, an occasional magazine, on the subject, which focuses on the RPG setting, the fiction that inspires it, and the real-world history that underpins both. While their Kickstarter campaign for their third issue was a great success, they’d like to have a steady revenue to tap into for related projects that keep Sentinel Hill Press and the Arkham Gazette moving but are not directly related to making new gaming materials: * Research: While their collection of RPG materials is nearly complete (just missing a few minor scenarios in magazines), their collection of Lovecraft related works is far from comprehensive. Likewise, while they have put together a healthy collection of resources on New England history and folklore, there are still plenty of useful works they have not been able to explore. Their Amazon wishlist has some of the titles they hope to purchase – note that while some books are not cheap, many are available for only a few dollars or even in e-versions. * A Podcast: There are some great Call of Cthulhu and Lovecraftian podcasts out there – The Miskatonic University Podcast, the Good Friends of Jackson Elias, and the Cthulhu Breakfast Club (to name a few!) all do wonderful work. They think that there is room for something along the lines of the Unspeakable Oath’s podcast “Unspeakable!”, which talks about the Unspeakable Oath magazine, Pagan Publishing, Arc Dream Publishing, and topics of interest to its readers. They have started recording episodes of The Sentinel Hill Press-cast to test out their thesis.
