Roll the Dice and Join PulpFest 2016

Fortune and Glory

PulpFest was founded on the premise that the pulps had a profound effect on American popular culture, reverberating through a wide variety of mediums — comic books, movies, paperbacks and genre fiction, television, men’s adventure magazines, radio drama, and even video and role-playing games. The summertime destination for fans and collectors of vintage popular fiction, art, and related materials, PulpFest seeks to honor the pulps by drawing attention to the many ways such magazines have inspired writers, artists, film directors, software developers, and other creators over the decades.

Last year, PulpFest introduced a gaming track. Many of the themes found in the world of modern games resonate from the pulps and the stories published in those magazines. There are games based on Conan, the Cthulhu Mythos, space operas such as Doc Smith’s Lensman series, westerns, mysteries and, of course, the pulp heroes. Role-playing games, or RPGs, are especially noted for quick action, cliff-hangers, and adventure.

It is quite appropriate that games will be returning to this summer’s pulp convention. Both TSR Hobbies — the original publisher of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS — and Wizards of the Coast — the company that popularized the collectible card game genre with MAGIC: THE GATHERING — served as the publisher of AMAZING STORIES. The first continuing science fiction magazine, its ninetieth anniversary will be feted at PulpFest 2016. The convention is working with several Columbus-based gaming groups and individuals to develop our gaming track. They will also manage our games for members who want to explore this aspect of the pulps.

The Columbus chapter of the Ohio Pathfinder Society will run RPGs dealing with weird tales, ancient ruins, and murder mysteries set in a fantasy world based on the Pathfinder RPG. Another Ohio group, Rogue Cthulhu, will be running role-playing adventures based on H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and other weird tales set in the 1920s. This year, we’ll be adding the FELLOWSHIP OF THE WHITE STAR  game system, which utilizes a semi-historical setting of 1905 – 1914 Earth.  Join the Fellowship in their fight against the evils plots of Rasputin, Imhotep, Dracula, Baba Yaga, Emilio Aguinaldo, Arthur Evans, Jack the Ripper, and the Six-Fingered Hand.

The PulpFest gaming track will also feature board and card games that will be set up for people looking to find some new and interesting entertainment at the convention. FORTUNE AND GLORY is an exciting board game in which you are an adventurer crossing the world in search of lost artifacts, like many of the heroes of ARGOSY, another magazine that PulpFest 2016 will be saluting.  Additionally, we’ll have ELDRITCH HORROR, a board game featuring a band of investigators fighting the influence of Cthulhu around the globe, plus CTHULHU DICEELDER SIGN, and ZOMBIE DICE. Other board games loaded with cliffhangers, science fiction, aliens and mysteries will also be available at the convention. We’ll have games that can last from twenty minutes to several hours and are planning to have prizes available for our game-playing members, depending upon support from gaming companies.

The PulpFest 2016 gaming track will begin at 10 AM on Saturday, July 23, and last until 10 PM or thereabouts. All games will take place in the Clark Room, located on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency. There will be eight tables set up where a variety of board games, card games, and role-playing games will be presented. Watch for the PulpFest PLAY banner outside the entrance to our game room.

The only requirements to play games at PulpFest 2016 are a PulpFest membership, your imagination, and a desire to have a good time. So if you enjoy pulps and you enjoy games, PulpFest will be the place to be. You can join us at the beautiful Hyatt Regency in Columbus, Ohio, beginning on Thursday evening, July 21, and running through Sunday afternoon, July 24. Click the registration button below our home page banner to learn how to register for “Summer’s AMAZING Pulp Con,” also known as, “Summer’s FANTASTIC Pulp Gaming Con.”

(FORTUNE AND GLORY, THE CLIFFHANGER GAME — designed by Jason C. Hill and published by Flying Frog Productions — is a fast-paced game of high adventure, vile villains, edge-of-your-seat danger, and cliffhanger pulp movie action. Players travel the globe in search of ancient artifacts, fending off danger and villains at every turn in a quest for ultimate reward. So strap on your adventure boots and goggles, fire up the engines on the seaplane, and grab some extra ammo for your revolver … the Nazis already have a head start and in this race for fortune and glory, there’s no prize for second place!)

Sell Your Stuff at PulpFest 2015

Jul 17, 2015 by

Newsstand2015With less than one month remaining before the 2015 PulpFest begins, convention chairman Jack Cullers reports that most available exhibit space has already been booked, and that dealers who have not yet registered for the convention should reserve their tables immediately lest they risk being shut out.

Although our huckster room at the Hyatt is quite spacious – almost 16,000 square feet – given the many dealers who have found PulpFest to be a great venue to sell their wares, the space fills up fast. This is especially true with our generous offer for dealers who stay at the Hyatt Regency Columbus during the convention. They receive one free table for every two that they rent. So our remaining space is shrinking fast. Wall tables are already completely gone. As of this writing we can still accommodate more exhibitors, but the time to book is now!

Island tables are priced at $70. Wall tables and placement within the dealers’ room will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. All dealers will also be required to purchase regular three-day memberships for themselves and for any helpers accompanying them to PulpFest.

Although the focus of PulpFest 2015 will be pulp magazines and related materials, vintage paperbacks, digests, men’s adventure and true crime magazines, first edition hardcovers, science-fiction, detective, western, and other genre books and magazines, series books, dime novels, original art, Big Little Books, B-movies and serials and related collectibles, old-time-radio shows, Golden and Silver Age comic books, and pulp-related games and comic books can also be sold.

Most of the people who attend PulpFest are vintage pop culture enthusiasts. So it’s a great place to sell science-fiction books, mystery and detective fiction, adventure or western fiction, original artwork, and more. And it doesn’t have to be old! Publishers such as Adventures in Bronze, Age of Aces, and Murania Press do well selling their pulp reprints and related materials. So do resellers such as Mike Chomko, Books and Martin Grams. Authors and new pulp publishers such as Dick Enos, and Airship 27 have found PulpFest to be a great event to market today’s pulp fiction.

The main themes of PulpFest 2015 are the 125th anniversary of the birth of H. P. LovecraftWEIRD TALES, and Standard Magazines, also known as the “Thrilling Group.” Sales should be hopping in those categories!

Dealers interested in selling at PulpFest 2015 should get in touch with Jack Cullers as soon as possible. You can reach him via email by writing to jack@pulpfest.com or by regular mail at 1272 Cheatham Way, Bellbrook, OH 45305. Please visit our registration page and download a copy of our PulpFest 2015 Dealer Newsletter & Registration Form and, if you like, use our Paypal Order page to reserve your table space today! Please remember to ask for your free table if you will be staying at the Hyatt Regency Columbus and will be renting two or more tables.

If you have not yet booked your room for PulpFest 2015, our host hotel is completely full. However, there are still some rooms available at nearby hotels. Please visit www.pulpfest.com/2015/06/16872/ and you’ll find a link to a list of hotels to choose from. If you are not from the Columbus area and want to sell at PulpFest 2015, we urge to book your room now and not later. Rooms that are relatively close to PulpFest are disappearing fast during the time frame of our convention.

(Like this year’s PulpFest, this 1939 newsstand in Taylor, Texas is bulging with pulps published by the Thrilling Group. We count fifteen different Standard Magazine titles in the rack.

Cthulhu is Calling You to PulpFest’s Gaming Track

Jul 14, 2015 by

Call of Cthulhu Banner

During the late summer of 1926, H. P. Lovecraft wrote “The Call of Cthulhu.” Initially rejected by WEIRD TALES editor Farnsworth Wright, it was first published in “The Unique Magazine” in its February 1928 issue. Although a few related stories predated it — “The Nameless City,” “The Hound,” and “The Festival” — in what has come to be known as “The Cthulhu Mythos,” “The Call of Cthulhu” is a seminal work of its author. As writer and Lovecraft correspondent Fritz Leiber observed, “Here for the first time, Lovecraft moves horror from the realm of Earth to the stars.”

In Lovecraft’s remaining years following the publication of “The Call of Cthulhu,” he expanded on its themes in such tales as “The Whisperer in Darkness,” “At the Mountains of Madness,” and “The Shadow Out of Time,” depicting a universe of mind-numbing horror and reflecting his own materialistic atheism. During his last years, Lovecraft invited other writers to pen their own tales using the “synthetic folklore” he had created. “I think it is rather good fun to have this artificial mythology given an air of verisimilitude by wide citation.” Some of the authors who responded with their own “Cthulhu” fiction were Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch, Frank Belknap Long, and Henry Kuttner.

In later years, particularly following the death of “the old gentleman,” August Derleth worked to expand Lovecraft’s so-called “mythos,” shaping it in a way that some scholars claim to be a corruption of the original author’s intent. Derleth’s “Cthulhu Mythos,” as the story-type came to be known, shifted away from Lovecraft’s nihilistic universe toward a more “good versus evil” theme. Other writers, notably Lin Carter and Brian Lumley, continued this process.

Although Derleth may have corrupted Lovecraft’s “synthetic folklore,” he also helped to popularize the author’s fiction through his Arkham House Publishers and significantly expanded Lovecraft’s reputation. His visions increasingly came under the microscope of academia and scholars. His fiction became increasingly known and popular, leading to adaptations in a variety of media. All of this came to a head in 1981 when a wargame and role-playing-game publisher known as Chaosium released the first edition of CALL OF CTHULHU, a game developed by Sandy Peterson. It is is now in its seventh edition and is one of the role-playing games that will be featured during PulpFest‘s new gaming track.

Based on H. P. Lovecraft’s observation that “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown,” the setting of Chaosium’s CALL OF CTHULHU is a darker and stranger version of our world, where the players try to hold back the darkness. The original game is set in the 1920s, the setting of many of Lovecraft’s stories. There have been numerous interesting adventures written for the game system over the years, including the CTHULHU BY GASLIGHT supplement, a blend of occult and Holmesian mystery set in Victorian England; CTHULHU DARK AGES that takes place about 1000 AD; CTHULHU RISING and its 23rd century setting; and CTHULHU INVICTUS, which takes place in the first century at the time of the Roman Empire.

Whatever the setting, the players take on the roles of detectives, criminals, scholars, artists, war veterans, and others who are drawn into the realm of the mysterious. Often, events begin innocently enough, until more and more of the true nature of reality is revealed. As the players experience more of the true horrors of the world and the irrelevance of humanity, their sanity inevitably withers away. The fun of these games comes from assuming roles that are different from everyday life and sometimes, making choices that one would not make in reality.

CALL OF CTHULHU has a reputation as a game in which it is quite common for a player character to die in gruesome circumstances or end up in a mental institution. Eventual triumph of the players is not a guarantee. However, dying heroically or going insane is part of the fun of this game. But who knows? You may gain the tools you need to defeat the creatures of the night – mystical knowledge and magic – and outsmart your opponents. As H. P. Lovecraft wrote in 1926, “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.”

The PulpFest 2015 gaming track will begin at 10 AM on both Friday and Saturday and last until 10 PM or thereabouts. On Sunday, games will begin at 10 AM and continue until the end of the convention. All games will be set up in the Clark Room, located on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency. The only requirements to play games at PulpFest 2015 are a PulpFest membership, your imagination, and a desire to have a good time. So if you enjoy pulps and you enjoy games, PulpFest will be the place to be. You can join us at the beautiful Hyatt Regency in Columbus, Ohio, beginning on Thursday evening, August 13th and running through Sunday afternoon, August 16th.

Then, click the red “register” button on our home page to learn how to register for “Summer’s Great Pulp Con,” and now, “Summer’s Great Pulp Gaming Con.”

(Many thanks to Chaosium, the publisher of CALL OF CTHULHU, one of the most recognized role playing games in the world. Chaosium has donated a selection of books and role-playing-game supplements to be used as prizes for PulpFest‘s new gaming track.)

Go Nuts at PulpFest’s New Gaming Track

Jun 5, 2015 by

Cthulhu DiceNew at this year’s PulpFest will be a gaming track. Many of the themes found in the world of modern games resonate from the pulps and the stories published in those magazines. There are games based on Conan, the Cthulhu Mythos, space operas, westerns, mysteries, pulp heroes, and more.

PulpFest 2015 will have demonstrations of role-playing games and various board, card, and dice games. We’ll have a room featuring eight tables for new or experienced players. A number of local gaming groups will be running RPGs dealing with weird tales, ancient ruins, and murder mysteries. As part of our celebration of the 125th anniversary of the birth of H. P. Lovecraft, there will be role-playing adventures based on the Cthulhu Mythos. Additionally, we’ll have a number of board and card games that can be played in less than a hour. So if you need a break from the dealers’ room, you won’t be kept away too long.

One of the quick games that will be played at PulpFest is called Cthulhu Dice. Players take turns rolling the big, custom-designed, twelve-sided die, embossed with tentacles, Elder Signs, and more. The objective of the game is to drive your opponents insane with the cast of your die. Want to destroy your friend’s sanity, or better yet, steal it? Stop at the PulpFest 2015 game room and play a round or two of Cthulhu Dice. But watch out for Cthulhu! When the Great Old One shows up, he drives everyone insane! The last sane cultist wins . . . unless everyone goes mad together. Then Cthulhu wins! Cthulhu Dice plays in 5 to 10 minutes, and is great fun for two to six players.

Another fun game is Munchkin Conan, a card game with 168 cards and a unique six-sided die. Based on the adventures of Robert E. Howard’s Conan, introduced to readers in the December 1932 issue of Weird Tales, players can battle wizards, slay monsters, defeat vast armies, and laugh in the face of death. Be a Cimmerian Warrior or a Stygian wizard! Wield the Sword of the Phoenix and poison your foes with the Black Lotus! Slay Thoth-Amon’s minions, abominable monsters, and Pict raiders. Hear the lamentations of their women! Fast-playing and silly, Munchkin Conan can reduce any role-playing group to hysteria. And, while they’re laughing, you can steal their stuff!

The PulpFest 2015 gaming track will begin at 10 AM on both Friday and Saturday and last until 10 PM or thereabouts. On Sunday, games will begin at 10 AM and continue until the end of the convention. All games will be set up in the Clark Room, located on the second floor of the Hyatt Regency.

Arkham Horror

New at this year’s PulpFest will be a gaming track. Many of the themes found in the world of modern games resonate from the pulps and the stories published in those magazines. There are games based on Conan, the Cthulhu Mythos, space operas such as Doc Smith’s Lensman series, westerns, mysteries and, of course, the pulp heroes. Role-playing games, or RPGs, are especially noted for quick action, cliff-hangers, and adventure.

Responding to numerous requests over the last few years to add gaming to the convention mix, PulpFest has decided to begin a gaming track in 2015. We will have a room set up with eight tables where a variety of board games, card games, and role-playing games will be presented.  We are currently working with several Columbus-based gaming groups and individuals that will run and teach games to convention attendees who would like to explore that aspect of the pulps.

The Columbus chapter of the Ohio Pathfinder Society will run RPGs dealing with weird tales, ancient ruins, and murder mysteries set in a fantasy world based on the Pathfinder RPG. Another Ohio group, Rogue Cthulhu, will be running role-playing adventures based on H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and other weird tales set in the 1920s. In addition, the Trail of Cthulhu game system will have adventures set in the 1930’s and add a noir approach to the Mythos. Another will be Fortune and Glory where you are an adventurer crossing the world in search of lost artifacts. Depending on demand, we may have a few other games dealing with cliffhangers and mysteries. All of these RPGs generally happen around a table using pens, paper, and dice. Most convention RPGs last about four hours.

Besides RPGs, there will be a number of board and card games that will be demonstrated and played at the convention. These games can last from twenty minutes to several hours. They will be set up for people looking to find some new and interesting entertainment at PulpFest 2015.  We’ll be offering Cthulhu Dice, Elder Sign, and Arkham Horror.

PulpFest will also be contacting a number of game companies in search of prizes for our gaming members.
