Comments / Trivia

Setting information: Der Hexer von Salem translates to The Witcher of Salem and refers to a series of novels written by the German author Wolfgang Hohlbein. This book presents the world of Hohlbein's novels as a setting for Call of Cthulhu. As a distinguishing feature, player characters will have more hitpoints and can use magic more frequently than normal. This way Hexer supports a game style with a focus on pulp.

This book includes a complete, if somewhat trimmed version of Call of Cthulhu.

The Hexer setting is support by three adventures Wenn Engel Fallen (When Angels Fall), Der Teufelsplan des Fu Manchu (The Fiendish Plan of Fu Manchu) and Tage des Mondes (Days of the Moon); as well as two solitaire adventure books Der Blutstern (The Blood-Star) and Das schleichende Grauen (The creeping Terror).

With a complete ruleset, adventure and solitaire adventure support, the more pulpy take on the mythos and an popular and established setting, this book was aimed at people new to Call of Cthulhu and/or roleplaying in general and Pegasus' attempt to get Cthulhu onto the shelves of bookstores that normally wouldn't stock roleplaying games. [1]

There was also a 50 copies limited edition of the Hexer. It's the same book, but numbered and signed by Wolfgang Hohlbein.
