Call of Cthulhu: Atomic-Age Cthulhu
MYTHOS HORROR IN THE 1950s NEVER BEFORE had the world faced a threat as potentially devastating as the A-bomb -- and the even more lethal H-bomb that followed. Educational films showed how to 'survive' a nuclear blast by crawling under a desk, as if a few inches of wood made any difference. In movie theaters, classic monsters of the '30s and '40s were replaced by atom-spawned horrors. Unseen enemies were everywhere: from devilish rock-and-roll music to morally-corrupt books such as Lolita and Catcher in the Rye. Comic-books corrupted the minds of our youths, and godless Communists constituted a red menace to be stopped using any means necessary. ATOMIC-AGE CTHULHU brings Lovecraftian horror roleplaying into the post-war golden age. Here you find background and history that led to the development of the 1950s world, along with new skills and professions for your investigators. A number of Sinister Seeds are included to help you grow your own 1950s horrors, but seven complete adventures are ready for you to spring on your unsuspecting players.Pages: 224
