Meeting Notes: Today’s meeting was pretty short and sweet, as no one was used to having meetings on Tuesday. Most of the jocularity revolved around alcohol, including a discussion of scotch. We talked a bit about some new upcoming products and marketing venues, and broke early so Ethan can have some of his blood taken (presumably by someone he wants to have it, instead of by random vagrants).

Today's Reason to Drink:
On February 17, 1936, the world's first superhero, The Phantom, made his first appearance in a comic strip. (I’m not sure if this claim is accurate, but that’s what Wikipedia says – anyone have any supporting or conflicting evidence for this claim?)

Goblin Markets.

Is this likely to be a PDF/POD release like New Wave Requiem? If so, I definitely favor this new method of putting out niche products! ...and if not, woo, more Changeling in hard copy!

Yes, it'll be similar to New Wave Requiem. (Not sure on the PoD part yet -- depends on how big it ends up being.)

I have freind who nearly drove over to my house at 1am after recieving the link for the NWR cover but she hatseses the pdf but is down with the PoD so if this is PoD it has much more interest and appeal in our local group.

I was referring to Goblin Markets, not New Wave Requiem. If/when we get a PoD program we're comfortable with, I'm hoping to have NWR available via that route (indeed, it was originally intended as a joint PDF/PoD release).

I too, love Scotch.

I'm not sure how The Phantom is considered a superhero, much less the first. He's a masked crime-fighter, yes, but not the first by a long shot. His only hallmark is the first to wear a skintight suit. The first masked crime-fighter would probably go to The Shadow, or other figure. He has no "super" powers. That would probably go to Superman. Although someone could make a case for Hugo Hercules, a joke comic started in 1902, being a superhero. There were quite a few crime-fighters with abilities beyond normal people that predate both Superman and The Phantom. And if Batman and The Phantom are considered superheroes, then most of them would be as well.

The French character "the Nyctalope" first appeared in 1909.

Physical proof??

So karate that leaves a mark, then, as proof of its existence!

Collection of Horrors?

Is that the much rumored book of Erotic Photography of the White Wolf crew?

Only if every page had Mike Chaney on it.

Doctor Occult dates back to October 1935. He's the oldest superhero owned by DC Comics.

ETA on Tarot

Im anxiously awaiting the tarot deck. Any estimation on when this will hit the shelves or be available for pre-order?

Re: ETA on Tarot

I don't have an ETA, but I think it'll be a few months from when it goes to press (which will be soon).
