Haven't been able to find a version past 5.5.  If there's a version set for Pulp, even better.

Use the character generated at Dhole's House: https://www.dholesho...racters/Default


7th edition, although just classic and gaslight atm.

Slight correction ... only classic 1920's is currently supported. Watch for an update (soon) for Pulp Cthulhu

Seeds of Doom - plot generator

Sorry folks.  Although I was able to get Byakhee to work again by careful jiggling of C++, I'm not very skilled in it, and haven't had the time - personal issues - to devote to updating Byakhee for 7th.  Unfortunately there's a lot of 'assumptions' in the code about the core stats, which don't initially look to be troublesome but are.


As fond as I am of Byakhee, I don't think I'll be able to push it forward to 7th edition.  That said, if a C++ programmer out there wants to take a look - feel free!  https://github.com/jcfiala/Byakhee is where the code is available.

As trevlix said - the Dhole's House by carnage_lee supercedes byakhee nowadays.


Lee's done such an excellent job, go use Dhole's House!
