CALL OF CTHULHU 7th Edition
Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft By Sandy Petersen with Mike Mason, Paul Fricker, and Lynn Willis
The Great Old Ones ruled the earth aeons before the rise of humankind. Originally they came from the gulfs of space and were cast down by even greater beings. Remains of their cyclopean cities and forbidden knowledge can still be found on remote islands in the Pacific, buried amid the shifting sands of vast deserts, and in the frigid recesses of the polar extremes. Now they sleep — some deep within the enveloping earth and others beneath the eternal sea, in the drowned city of R’lyeh, preserved in the waters by the spells of mighty Cthulhu. When the stars are right they will rise, and once again walk this Earth.
CALL OF CTHULHU is Chaosium’s classic roleplaying game of Lovecraftian horror, in which ordinary people are confronted by the terrifying and alien forces of the Cthulhu Mythos. CALL OF CTHULHU uses Chaosium’s Basic Roleplaying System, easy to learn and quick to play. This bestseller has won dozens of game-industry awards, is a member of the Academy of Adventure Game Design Hall of Fame, and was voted the #1 Gothic/Horror RPG of all time by the Gaming Report.com community. CALL OF CTHULHU is supported by a growing line of high quality supplements.
CTHULHU WARS is a strategy/horror board game from Lovecraft’s classic Cthulhu Mythos; a competitive strategy game in which 3 to 5 players produce cultists and monsters, build mystic gates, and awaken Great Old Ones. The players earn spellbooks, try to destroy their enemies, and capture their bases. Each faction has its own unique set of monsters, spells, and its own Great Old One(s).
Sandy Petersen, the original author of Call of Cthulhu, is looking to release this game soon. He has launched his own Kickstarter project to get it off the ground. We thought we would do our part to help promote this great project! You can find is HERE.
