Miskatonic University: A Sourcebook (Call of Cthulhu Horror Roleplaying)
MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY is a small, seemingly typical New England college nestled in the bosom of conservative Arkham, Massachusetts. A poor cousin to such hallowed institutions as Harvard, Brown, and Princeton (the term Ivy League won t come into use until 1936), Miskatonic nonetheless offers coveted degrees in a wide variety of subjects and boasts high academic standards.

Devotees of the Cthulhu Mythos and long time players of Call of Cthulhu know the name well, and greet it with a mixture of fondness and dread. A small, quiet institution of higher learning, Miskatonic serves as the home of many of H. P. Lovecraft s greatest protagonists, or as the staging ground for daring expeditions into the unknown.

As a symbol of reason, learning, and science, the school represents all that is good, true, and pure in modern civilization the us to the insidious, alien them of the Cthulhu Mythos. Although Miskatonic is mentioned or figures prominently in most of the stories that form the backbone of the Call of Cthulhu game, the college itself remains as ill-defined as many of beasties lurking in the pages of Lovecraft s fiction. While monsters that never shamble into view are often scarier than the ones we can see, Miskatonic University and the professors who walk its halls of ivy and alabaster are part of our normal waking world, and can therefore stand up to the light of day.

Keepers running Call of Cthulhu games need to bring Miskatonic into sharp focus, whether their campaigns are set entirely on the sleepy campus or only visit it briefly. Who at Miskatonic can investigators count on to believe their outlandish tales? Just what secrets are and aren t kept in the world famous Orne Library? What might your investigators bump into while finding out? Miskatonic University offers some answers, scrutinizing familiar ground with a scientist s vision and a librarian s obsession with detail.

What's So Great About King Tut?: A Biography of Tutankhamun Just for Kids! (Volume 14)
Born as “Tutankhaten, King Tut is remembered for many reasons. During his reign as Pharaoh he made the difficult decision to publically disagree with his father and to undo many of the changes that Amenhotep IV had made during his rule (including making Amarna the capital city). Tutankhaten would also try to reestablish the friendships with surrounding nations that his father had ignored and to start a large family of his own so that his ideas could continue to guide the country long after he had died. But the life of Tutankhaten was very complicated. It seems that as a young king he was used by the people around him, specifically some very powerful advisors who took advantage of the fact that he was just a child. They probably convinced the king to do the things that they themselves wanted him to do. You may know King Tut’s name, but perhaps you've wondered, "What's so great about him?” This book (part of the “What’s So Great About…”) series, gives kids insight into life, times and career of King Tut.

What's So Great About Johnny Appleseed?: A Biography of Johnny Appleseed Just for Kids!
The common image that most of us have of Johnny Appleseed is a man skipping down the road with a tin pot on his head, an old coffee sack for clothing, carrying nothing but a leather bag full of apple seeds. We imagine him alongside riverbanks planting trees that would produce ripe, juicy apples for pies and snacks. We see him sort of just wandering around, travelling from one place to another with no particular destination in mind. Just about everything in the previous paragraph is wrong. Johnny Appleseed has been called a lot of things, from eccentric to strange to downright insane –but it’s safe to say that much of what has been said and written about him is completely untrue and is based on stories, not on reality. The real Johnny Appleseed was a much more complicated figure. Born just before the American Revolution broke out, young Johnny quickly learned how life can change in the blink of an eye. You may know Johnny Appleseed‘s name, but perhaps you've wondered, "What's so great about him?”
