YSDC fundraising for novel based on Horror on the Orient Express sessions

It's often said that you should never try to novelise your RPG game, no matter how much you think it rocked face, but in this particular instance I think you can disregard that advice. The Cthulhu gaming site YSDC are raising money to have their Horror on the Orient Express game published as a novel.

The novel, called The Express Diaries and written by Nick Marsh, is complete, but the group are looking to crowd-funding site Indiegogo for money to get it published. 

So far, they've raised an impressive $2,045 out of a target $5,000 and with 45 days left to go they stand a good chance in hitting the bar. 

You can download the first chapter on the fundraising site and decide if this is something you want to throw down some cash for. Check out their original campaign recording if you want to know more about the game or if you're just curious about how a Call of Cthulhu game is played. The Bradford players have a bunch of campaigns they've recorded in the past and they're all really entertaining to listen to.
