Back Cover Text
Issue 2 of The Black Seal concentrates on the UK's shadowy occult watchmen: the Paranormal Intelligence Section for Counter-intelligence, Espionage and Sabotage, or PISCES. First presented in Pagan Publishing's Delta Green: Countdown, The Black Seal explores the darker side of the fight against the Cthulhu Mythos.
Articles include an overview of PISCES, its secret research facility 'Magonia', Swinging Sixties excesses, and PISCES operations in the United States.
Other articles include a resurrected foe from the past, PISCES alternatives for Cthulhu Now games, a look at Brichester, Tales of Terror, Dangerous Places & reviews.
"The Black Seal promises to re-animate the modern-day Call of Cthulhu genre. It's packed with more facts, spookiness, and great game material than Eihort has tiny whitish spider larvae."
