Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft

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 and is a member of the Academy of Adventure Game Design Hall of Fame. In 2001 Call of Cthulhu celebrated its 20th anniversary. In 2003 Call of Cthulhu was voted the #1 Gothic/Horror RPG of all time by the Gaming Report.com community. Call of Cthulhu is well-supported by an ever-growing line of high quality game supplements.

This is a softcover edition of the classic horror game, completely compatible with all of previous supplements for Call of Cthulhu. This is a complete roleplaying game in one volume. All you need to play is this book, some dice, imagination, and your friends.

A true classic

*****

Classic, horror, simple yet elegant system, dripping with atmosphere. Highly recommended even if you're just reading the mythos section.


Definitely a Classic...

*****

One of my favorite sections is the "mythos history" section that details odd historical and mythos events down through the ages.
All around wild book.


Timeless Classic

*****

Call of Cthulhu is one of the Great Old Ones, these classics of RPG history. It hasn't lost any of its appeal down the years. The mechanics are simple, the ambiance is definitely there, and Lovecraft's Mythos provides this "little something" that makes it different from countless other horror RPGs.

If you want to be able to say you know anything about RPGs, just like D&D, Vampire and a few other classics, you have to get and play this game.
