Call of Cthulhu Keeper Decks

Now out from Chaosium, the four Call of Cthulhu Keeper Decks as originally promised in the CoC 7e Kickstarter. Each of the 46-card decks are designed to provide both Keepers and players with "handy references, information and notes".


The decks (Curious Characters, Phobias, Unfortunate Events, Weapons and Artifacts (sic)) are sold as a set but the PDF versions may be purchased separately (or as a bundle) directly from Chaosium.


I’ve always found having these kinds of accessories at the table to be quite useful and I’m still looking forward to receiving the print versions of Cubicle 7’s Cards from the Smoke.

Call of Cthulhu Keeper Decks


Four decks of cards for use with the Call of Cthulhu tabletop roleplaying game. Each deck provides the Keeper and players with handy references, information and notes.


Contained within are:

  • The Phobia Deck – 46 cards, each detailing the effects and consequences of a phobia, mania, or episode of madness.
  • The Curious Characters Deck - 46 cards, each providing game characteristics and backstories for a range of characters that the players could meet during a game.
  • The Unfortunate Events Deck - 46 cards, with all manner of strange, ill-fated and disastrous situations that will land the players in deep water.
  • The Weapons and Artifacts Deck - 46 cards, each detailing a hand-to-hand, firearm or Mythos artefact.


The Keeper can use these decks to supplement their scenarios: as inspiration when designing new encounters, to pass players secret and important notes during a game, and as a handy way to impart information. The different cards can enhance the story, advance the plot, as well as introduce friendly or villainous non-player characters.


Price (US): $29.95 (Print) | $4.95 (PDF, each) | $14.95 (PDF, set)

Found my old homemade HotOE cards that I used at the table.

Mmm... walnut chutney!  I do enjoy using cards at the table - it gives people something to fiddle with instead of phones and tablets... Your homemade ones look rather nifty!  Did you back them onto card or are they just paper?

They're backed onto old FFG Cthulhu CCG cards. :-)
