The "war to end all wars" is over, peace returns to the land and the sound of wedding bells are in the air, but not all is beauty and light in the seat of Empire. A seemingly cut and dried murder case begs further investigation and an act of faith. How can the "impossible" be possible?

Out from Chaosium comes the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set, which the company advertises as containing "...everything you need to start playing Call of Cthulhu—the tabletop roleplaying game of mystery and horror".
The box set is available now, directly from Chaosium's web site, priced at $25 USD.
Discussion (and some history) of the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set can be found in our forums. Chaosium are also planning a series of Launch Parties for the release.
News from Pnakotus for December 2018 is out and more changes are announced.
One of those changes is that following a survey all our audio productions going forward will be LOUDER! Marty and I pick over the latest Lovecraftian, Cthulhu and gaming news as we turn the dials up to 11 right across the board.
Top of the news is discussion about Sans-Détour losing their Call of Cthulhu licence and what that could mean. Our new section The Book Cellar returns and this edition of NfP is in both binaural surround sound and shotgun stereo (for folk who like to compare and contrast).
The complete archive of News from Pnakotus (stretching back to 2010) is available to Yoggie Patrons. Thanks to everyone who's listened to our Mythos musings over the years. It's been fun. 😎
Earlier today Chaosium released a statement announcing the removal of the French Call of Cthulhu licence held by Sans-Détour, a company known for its high production value publications and extensive limited edition RPG sets.
The statement describes how Sans-Détour have failed to pay required licence fees to Chaosium since late 2016, and that Chaosium are now investigating legal action against the RPG publisher. This turn of events obviously puts SD crowd funders (such as Les Masques de Nyarlathotep et Le Jour de la Bête) in severe doubt of fulfilment.
In the same Press Release Chaosium have also indicated that a new French language Call of Cthulhu licensee is in the works to replace Sans-Détour.
I would humbly suggest that the best part of the fight back rule is that monsters and cultists by default fight back, which requires them to get a greater level of success to succeed and therefore shortens combat as they aren't dodging.
Agree with prior two comments. The games mentioned feature it and it is expected. It isn't an underlying premise of CoC, and subverted expectations are often hard sells for gamers who have a limited time to game.
