BTMOM prop madness

And the final post for today is about props too. As I mentionned before, I am currently playing through beyond the mountains of madness with my players and I (of course) made some props to add to the gaming experience…

    Are those real newspaper clippings, or did you make them? If you made them, how did you get them to look so authentic?

    I made those. With a quite simple technique in fact using two products, tea (strong dark tea) and iron buff (which is made by soaking steel wool in vinegar for at least a week). I will not explain the entire process in this reply but I think I could do a tutorial only on newspaper clippings reproductions soon, keep watching…

    Same comment – I was wondering about the aging process – can’t wait to read your tutorial on this method as it appears to be VERY good.

    when the session will end I will start working on this tutorial because I think a lot of people will be interested into it, and also because there is no tutorial on replicating newspaper on the net…

    These are bloody marvellous; I am so jealous – and inspired! I finished running BtMoM for my group in August, and I made a full suite of props and sound effects that went over pretty well, but this post motivates me to improve them for the next time.

    …By the way, I made dynamite props using your method and label, and the players were delighted. Thank you very much!

    I’m happy to hear about it! IT’s fun to see that what I’m doing and posting here can serve and help other keepers because that was a thing that frustrated me when I started making props for COC games…the lack of inspiration and instructions available…so I finally devellopped my own ways to do these things and I think it’s fair to share them with other cthulhu fans.
