The Second Miskatonic Antarctic Expedition

The folks over at The Goat Island Project have uncovered a stash of patches and notebooks from the second Miskatonic University Antarctic expedition. Ordering information and more pictures are available at the link.



Update: In response to some emails, although I have no involvement with this project I heartily support it. One of the unique things about Lovecraft's Mythos is that it was an open source, shared world right from the beginning. I personally like material based on the existing canon, but the post-classic era is ripe for development. Frankly, the more people playing in the sandbox, the better.

Did they have that kind of snow cat in 1957?

Doesn't matter... I love the concept, too. Visited the site but see no link to purchase.

@ James

The second link is the one with purchasing information- http://hawkdog.net/wordpress/archives/2215

The Goat Island Project is the overall site for the endeavor.

Found it! And placed an order.

Still doing some digging and trying to find out about that snowcat, though...

I think this link will take you to the payment instruction page....

On the other hand this makes me more impatient for the re-issue of your original patch! Any updates on this?

unrelated, but sort of about playing in the sandbox:

mythos choose your own adventure, with non-euclidian tacos.

They had similar snow cats like that in the 30's and 40's. Doesn't seem unreasonable.

I wish I'd gotten in on the previous offering.

Got my stuff... nicely done. The blue is very vivid. Can't wait to get it weathered and sewn on to a bag...
