Crossbloggery: The Flying Serpent, or Strange News out of Essex

Occasionally, posts on my history blog cross over with gaming stuff. Today over on the blog I'm talking about The Flying Serpent, or Strange News out of Essex, a facsimile of a 19th-century pamphlet replica of a 17th-century pamphlet about a mysterious serpent in Henham, Essex, with references to the famous Saffron Walden cockatrice. I love incorporating some actual folklore into my Call of Cthulhu or similar games, so let's see what I can do with this thing. You can get it on DTRPG: it's only $1.95 (about £1.20).

My blog has probably more than the higher normal proportion of readers who run or have run supernatural games set in Essex, so I thought I'd mention it.
