Pulp Cthulhu. Our earliest extant report on Pulp Cthulhu goes back to 2002 ("to be released in summer") and it was intended to be a 1930s setting for d20 Call of Cthulhu, however this particular Chaosium supplement has had a more chequered past than most (and some of them have been pretty chequered) with the title seeing development, re-development, numerous editors and the sobriquet "vapourware".
- but now it's actually out.
"Pulp Cthulhu is a game of two-fisted adventure, weird science, dark deeds, and brave heroes…. Tired of your investigators dying in quick succession when jaunting around the world in a desperate bid to save humanity? Wishing that sometimes your investigator could make a stand instead of hiding and waiting for the eldritch horror to pass? Pulp Cthulhu ups the ante and provides you with tougher, more capable heroes—ready to take on the villainous machinations of the Cthulhu Mythos!"
Released to KS backers is Cubicle 7 Entertainment's World War Cthulhu: Cold War. This is a progression of C7's original World War Cthulhu (WWII) setting bringing the paranoid climate of the Cold War era to your Cthulhu games.
"WWC is known for its structured, purist and gritty take on the Mythos, and Cold War takes things into an even deeper dimension of paranoia, moral uncertainty, and a loss of faith in both reality and who you are fighting for. Characters face complex and challenging choices, without any idea of who they can trust, or whose side they're really on."
Retail and print releases of World War Cthulhu: Cold War are promised soon.
Strap on your Yog Goggs! Yes, it's the May 2016 edition of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club.
In this meeting we discuss: Game recordings (audio vs. video), Afternoon Fantasy, Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition in print, Sir Flinders Petrie and the Flying Scotsman, transcraption services, Marty in Orbit, UK Games Expo and convention tips in general.
Spherical video clips in "YoggieVision" are also available to watch as we inspect the new version of Call of Cthulhu and there's another chance to win one of our CBC wooden Dice Towers.
The seventh edition of Call of Cthulhu has finally arrived in print. After a three year journey that saw Chaosium raise over half a million dollars, near-bankrupt the company, and a radical change of ownership and management, it has certainly be the most eventful edition of the 35 year old game to date.
Physical copies have been making their way to Kickstarter backers over the past week, but in a minor case of solipsism (and after such a length of time) I've been holding off posting this until a copy actually, really, actually, landed on my desk (with a rather large "thunk").
- and here it is:
Out from Pelgrane Press comes The Many Deaths of Edward Bigsby, a scenario by Adam Guantlett (Karloff) for Trail of Cthulhu. If the title sounds familiar, it's because we produced a limited edition release a few years ago.
It's a great adventure, and I'm not the only one who thinks so...
