    Punktown


    PoC

    After a long and protracted birth, the Punktown setting book for Call of Cthulhu (and BRP) has been released.

     

    Originally a Kickstarter from Miskatonic River Press in 2012, various development problems (and the closure of MRP) meant that the Punktown setting book, based on the works of Jeffrey Thomas, has now been completed and made available through Chronicle City (@AngusA).

     

    The print edition of Punktown is still in process but it's good to see that even elderly Kickstarters (6th Edition Call of Cthulhu) can still see the light of day!

     

     

    Punktown

     

    An RPG Setting for Call of Cthulhu Sixth Edition and BRP uses Chaosium's system to explore a dark, futuristic world fraught with untold perils created by author Jeffrey Thomas. Imagine Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Minority Report, Total Recall and the rest of the dark, not-too-distant-future genre. Now add aliens, mutants, robots and Lovecraftian horror. Blend them together, an you get a hint of what Punktown is like.

     

    This reference explores the city itself, the alien races, gthe weaponry, the creatures, mutations, cybernetics, drugs, sanity (and the inevitable loss thereof), and the options of adding the Cthulhu Mythos into the mix. As written in Thomas' work, the mythos is already there, threatening life as Punktowners know it. If you're a cyberpunk fan, if you're a horror fan, or if you're both, this book is for you.

     

    Keep your eyes wide, your pistol close, and mind the snipes. Those who venture into Punktown never leave the same... if they leave at all.

     

    Price: $15 PDF

    After 6 years it was good to see the PDF.  I am glad Tom and Angus never totally gave up.

    This one had entirely eluded my attention, as had the original stories, so I've picked it up along with an ebook of the first collection.

     

    Presumably this is the last hurrah of the sixth edition, unless that Black Sarcophagus they unearthed contained a trove of overdue Kickstarters as well as bones and sewage.

      In Reign of Terror the ghoul (Guillaume) makes references to his forays into the Dreamlands, so I think there may be a physical way there via the catacombs. You could certainly run a crossover of those two settings. Dreamhounds of Paris for Trail of Cthulhu might be a little handy for that, particularly if you want to use the 1920s somehow as well.   The Dreamlands is vaguely medieval/renaissance, but also has Victorian, ancient, and even Edwardian aspects.   I have run a Dreamlands-intensive game, with a Cat of Ulthar as a PC.

      How have other keepers used the Dreamlands in their campaigns? I’ve been reading about the setting quite a bit recently since I’m a fairly new keeper. I just introduced a couple of investigators to the Dreamlands via a recently deceased NPC. Currently I am running the Auction and from there it’s on to HotOE. I know there are a couple of scenarios in HotOE involving the Dreamlands. I’m interested to know if some of the optional scenarios could be introduced using the Dreamlands as well.    From what I could tell so far the Dreamlands seem to be a medieval type world. Has anyone ever ran it as something else? Could Reign of Terror be set there possibly? How about investigators access? Is it a simple dreaming skill roll to gain access to the world of dreams or is it more complicated?    Its stated several times to make the Dreamlands your own, I’m just looking for a frame of reference.

      This project is still being slowly worked on... (I have contractual writing that takes precedence). May be finished next year. The Silver Twilight is in it now...
