The Sassoon Files

The Sassoon Files is a set of campaign resources and canned adventures for Gumshoe's Call of Cthulhu. Earlier this year, TSF's kickstarter was successful and everything was going according to plan...except for the thing that backers' physical books were printed in China.

While Sons of The Singularity (SoS) are far from the first RPG publishers to print their books in China, writing any sort of urban horror fantasy there is asking for trouble. China's Big Brother has people inspecting literally every book that is produced in the country, and the government's authorization is required just to go to the press. From the moment the books were already printed, it's clear this publishing house thought they could just fool Big Brother and make some pocket money for themselves.

The blame lies with both sides. At least the publishing house decided not to put up a fight and reimburse SoS, so all that will happen is that backers will get their books some months late. Oh well, live and learn.

Peace.
