General notes on roleplaying games.
Today I bring you my thoughts about what is up to now the last published product of Achtung! Cthulhu.

Since it is not a physical book yet I won’t be doing any photo-review, but you can see a few sample pages here. This new booklet is a little bit longer than first part of the campaign
Now that you all know what is Achtung! Cthulhu and what I think about the setting here you have my thoughts regarding the first MODIPHIUS product, the first part of the Zero Point campaign, Three Kings, written by Sarah Newton.
As I said in a previous post, this adventure is available on pdf for Call of Cthulhu, Realms of Cthulhu, and PDQ. (Edited: and now also for Trail of Cthulhu). I only possess the first one, so that is the one I will be talking about. As far as I know, the story

From there, they were winched aboard the hovering Chocktaw, then LT Chahan had them swiftly on their way back to the Bairoko. Once they touched down on the Bairko's flight deck, it was back down to Pettigrew's lab to discuss their

I have been a fan of Lovecraft for about four years. I started reading his works when I was an over-night bellhop in a hotel and needed a way to pass the time. So, I went and got a copy of the Necromicon (that big old anthology of his works) and got to reading. My very first Lovecraft story was 'The Outsider' and I've been in love ever since.
It wasn't until recently that I discovered that Lovecraft was not only wildly popular but also had tons of game based around his works. Sure
