Robin Laws’s FIFTH IMPERATIVE is the sequel to THE MISSING AND THE LOST, which is one the best damn books you’ll never be able to find on Amazon.com. The book is set in a world where a dictator tainted with the Yellow Sign took power, and formed an Imperial Dynasty that ruled America for a century before it was overthrown and replaced by a democratic government; if that sounds a lot like one of the settings in Pelgrane Press’s THE YELLOW KING RPG, that’s because it is. The new book isn’t out yet, but the first one is really cool. So’s the game. Check them out.
Brothers (and sisters), have you seen the Yellow Sign? This one promises to be a nice, big, fat set of RPG settings for playing games where midnight approaches, and so does the Yellow King to his throne in Lost Carcosa.

Written and designed by GUMSHOE master Robin D. Laws, YKRPG takes you on a brain-bending spiral through multiple selves and timelines.
Continue reading Pelgrane Press’s “The Yellow King RPG” Kickstarter to start soon.
The Yellow King will be a standalone GUMSHOE game that incorporates the horror fiction of Robert W Chambers (and nothing else, so no actual Cthulhu or Yog-Sothery*) Also: please note that I didn’t watch more than a little bit of the actual gameplay video, because I don’t typically watch many of those. Robin Laws and the rest could have spent half the video chanting “Yog-Sothoth Neblod ZIN!” and I would have missed it.
*It’d be interesting if some of Chambers romantic fiction later got tossed into the mix. Dude probably never would have believed that his horror fiction is the only reason why we even remember his name these days. Funny old world, huh?
