Cthulhu Tales: Storytelling Card Game - Cubicle...

20 Nov 2015 03:59 PM | PoC in MAIN

Cubicle 7 have launched a Kickstarter for Cthulhu Tales, a "storytelling card game of the Cthulhu Mythos".


In essence:

"Incarcerated in a sanatorium, you must convince the staff that you are sane by telling the story of the terrifying events that led you there. The other players try to disrupt your tale to make themselves look more sane in comparison, and the success of your tale determines which misguided therapies and medication are administered by the terrifying medical staff."

The Kickstarter runs until mid-late December and funding is already more than half way there.

Cthulhu Breakfast Club: The All-Seeing Eye

17 Nov 2015 04:26 PM | PoC in MAIN

It must be Movember as the CBC discuss their moustache waxes of choice - but it's not all about maintaining a stiff upper lip...


In this meeting we talk about The Long Con from Pelgrane Press, does great artwork make RPGs?, ITV's Jekyll and Hyde, A Game of Thrones (weddings and more/less pleasant events), and the uses of a spherical (360) camera, among other things.


We also announce the winners of the "All Rolled Up" giveaways.


This meeting of the CBC is dedicated to the memory of "Big Bad John" (VAGUE, Manchester), a stalwart of the UK Nationals (National Student Roleplaying and Wargaming Championships) gaming scene.

Achtung! Cthulhu - Shadows of Atlantis

12 Nov 2015 04:41 PM | PoC in MAIN

From Modiphius Entertainment comes Shadows of Atlantis, a campaign for their Achtung! Cthulhu setting. Currently released as a 330 page PDF, the campaign takes place during the early days of World War II, promising to take "your investigators to the four corners of the earth and beyond".


Shadows of Atlantis is dual-statted for both the Call of Cthulhu and Savage Worlds systems.


(For some reason my spell checker keeps auto-correcting Achtung! Cthulhu to "Aching Cthulhu" - poor guy!)

Pelgrane Press: The Long Con

31 Oct 2015 01:14 PM | PoC in MAIN

Available from Pelgrane Press is The Long Con, a Trail of Cthulhu publication from the popular Adam Gauntlett.


The Long Con is a stand-alone scenario set in the heart of 1930s London:


"Sidney Pryce wants the protagonists’ help to set up a Big Store, to sucker a rich American into thinking he’s buying into a Burnt Auction. The rewards, Pryce promises, are incalculable; but soon after Pryce enlists their help, strange bird-creatures haunt the protagonists. How, they wonder, does Japanese folklore figure into it?"


Currently out in PDF, you can pick it up from the Pelgrane Press web shop.
