Back to the Mountains of Madness

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the infamous Miskatonic University Antarctic expedition.  It's also, much to my surprise, eight years since I last offered up the prop package inspired by Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness".  I honestly had no idea so much time had passed.

That said, I'm finally going to do another run of the package in honor of the nonagintennial.  It will definitely include a new patch, lapel pin, postcards, stickers, and field notebooks.  I'm also leaning toward issuing a 90th Anniversary challenge coin, but haven't made a final decision about that just yet.  I'm aiming for 100 sets with a price point around $20-$25 before shipping.

I'll keep you updated as the project progresses.  As always, your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.

The photos from the first set were a nice touch maybe something more along those lines?

This is terrific news! I look forward to seeing the new designs.

@Doc

My thanks.

@Unknown

That's an excellent idea. I'd forgotten they were part of the first set.

@Tim Lonegan

Hopefully they'll meet your expectations.

Good I came late to the party and missed the first round entirely. And it'd be nice to see your designs, I remember you got bootlegged something fierce.

@bea

It was pretty brutal. That's one of the reasons I soured on Ebay.

A sticker on clear backing for laptop cases or a windshield cling would be a nice touch?

@ Mortis

In the words of Dora the Explorer, "Why not both?". Heh.

Todd said...

YES! I was late to the party last time (finding your blog long after the first run was sold out). Been wondering if there would ever be a second chance. Take my money! :-)

This would make a nice set with my originals. Eight years!? Tempus fugit!

I missed it last time around, but I won't make that mistake twice.

I still treasure the items of yours I have been lucky enough to collect, and I hope to garner a few more this time around.

Rob said...

This is awesome. $20-25 sounds very reasonably, I'd gladly pay $30 today to reserve an order.

Wonderful waiting for such an opportunity for years. Count me in ... twice
