    One thought on “Call of Cthulhu: Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft

    1. Forrest on said:

      Call of Cthulhu has made my list of #7RPGs (which is in need of updating to include Dungeon Crawl Classics, but I digress). This 7th edition takes the previous editions and ratchets the game up a notch, not by any hugely different mechanics (you'll still find the Basic Roleplaying system at its core), but by presenting a carefully-crafted approach not only to the Call of Cthulhu game, but to roleplaying in general. In fact, I recommend any game master of any roleplaying game to read Chapter 10: [...]

      This is an older edition of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. Third edition, that is.For people like myself who are playing 7th edition this is a great historical overview as to how the game came to be over the many decades. For myself, some of the old maps and scenarios may prove usefulThe CoC RPG is easily in my top three overall RPGs! OVERALL GRADE: B plus to A minus.

    3. Devin on said:

      While I was aware of the existence of horror roleplaying games as a young teen - a friend had a copy of Chill, and another friend had a copy of Beyond the Supernatural - Call of Cthulhu served as my most memorable introduction to horror roleplay, as well as my introduction to Lovecraft's work. One of the striking things about the game when I started playing was that it was set in the 1920s, a period I had known little to nothing about. It has since become my favorite horror game, in part because [...]

      About time I put this up here. The best roleplaying game of all time to me. I have been playing this game since I was 13 and still play it today 16 years later. Of all the games I have run as GM, this is the one I have run the most, and the most successfully as well. It is probably the only rpg (along with Dying Earth) where I know the rules by heart and do not have to consistently look up reading material.The percentage system is sublime, but most importantly, unlike most other games, leveling [...]

    5. Jay Little on said:

      Sandy Petersen and Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying game is one of the longest running, most enduring, and most influential RPGS of all time. Over the different editions, I believe it has been translated into more than a dozen languages. The game system is simple, but does an excellent job of evoking the otherworldly horrors and insanity-inducing encounters of Lovecrafts work. It is an important work in the RPG industry.

    7. Oliver Eike on said:

      Most have heard the names Lovecraft or Cthulhu. Both are rather iconic in their own respect. So you have a roleplaying game by Chaosim set in Lovecraft's mythos, where you can, if your really unlucky, meet Cthulhu, and then be devoured shortly thereafter. You play as a investigator that look into anything from a haunted house to mysterious deaths at a nearby graveyard. Or you do battle against nerfarious cults trying to summon or advance the plots of eldritch horrors beyond human understanding. [...]

    8. Simon on said:

      The classic horror roleplaying game, in the bizarre horror setting of HP Lovecraft and his contemporaries (in which the earth is inhabited by aliens that madmen collude with, including ancient god like aliens around whom cults have formed). I'm owned various editions, and have just picked up the 7th, so I'm still getting to grips with it. It's a great game but the quality of the game often depends on the quality of the scenario played with, and often how disbelief the players can suspend in conf [...]

      Este libro de ROL es complejo y sencillo al mismo tiempo, planear una historia debe ser la ostia, pero lo voy a intentar con todos los detalles, que son increíblemente intensos y complejos. Un jugo donde la acción consiste en dar un inmenso rodeo para afrontar la realidad y conseguir superarla con el poder de la información, mucho más directa que la acción.Este fetiche sacado de la biblioteca debe ser mio, mio, mio, mio

    10. Thomas Kadim on said:

      I have fallen in love with the fiction of Lovecraft. This is by far the most enjoyable pen and paper RPG I have played. The d100 system works great, and really contributes to unique character development. The horror and mystery of Lovecraft creates a suspense like in no other RPG. Almost anything, from a bear, to a zombie, or a trap, it can kill you; and yet, the largest threat by far, is your own mind falling into insanity.

    11. Daniel Yocom on said:

      If you are a fan of Lovecraft, and like to play role-playing games, this is a must for your collection. I had the opportunity to read this for a review for Utah Geek Magazine, later posting the review on my own blog, guildmastergaming@blogspot. Those in my group that joined me in playing through same Call of Cthulhu really enjoyed the setting and the build. This is not a hack and slash game, but one of thinking.

    13. Kat on said:

      Probably my favorite RPG of all time. The roleplaying is way more important than number crunching, leveling, and min-maxing. It's very difficult not to have good stories with this game, but it's also sometimes very difficult to find a good group to play with. If you're a gamer and you haven't tried this game, you should, especially if you consider yourself mroe of a role-player than a gamer.

    15. Try Ngaserin on said:

      Simply one of the best BRPs out there. Get a group of 4-6 and you're set to go. This is a must-try for all RPers, we still run sessions (6th Edition) from time to time so contact me if you are interested.

    16. Richard Do on said:

      the forefather of dark fantasy and the born of Lovecraft horror genre,even throughout the book we don t get any kind of ultimate chilling feeling,the mysterious of the story still managed to pull us into a deform,monstrous underground world that Lovecraft has borne

    17. Jonathan Ratty on said:

      Still one of the best RPGs of all time. The scenarios written for this game were of such high quality, they pushed gaming into new directions: The Masks of Nyarlathotep is rightly regarded as probably the best one ever written in any game setting.

    18. Steve on said:

      Okay. This is certainly not for everyone. But if you're the type who enjoys role playing, you should give this a go. You'll have to roll an idea check after reading, because this corebook an *insanely* good time!

    19. Jared on said:

      I always enjoyed the subject matter, so trying the game was a natural leap. Sat in on a session of Call of Cthulhu at a gaming con back in 94 and it was not only very imaginative, but the game mechanics were much more fluid than others I had played up to that point. It's certainly worth a look.

    20. Terence on said:

      I remember playing this a few times during my UCLA days with a group of fellow RPG enthusiasts (this was the era of 2nd Edition AD&D). The one thing I remember about the game was that the longer one's character dealt with the Elder Gods et al. the greater the chances that one would go insane.

    21. Serkan on said:

      Only RPG system I knew was D&D. This system is way better than that. Realism is at it's best while keeping easy game play.

    22. Dave Brothers on said:

      This is a great update to an already beautiful system and only helps to streamline your inevitable descent into madness. There's more atmosphere, more horrific goodness, and fewer hurdles to slow you down.The distillation of more stats and mechanics to run on percentages simplifies some of the bean-counting. The Keeper's guide has lots of great resources for new and experienced GMs and the Player's Handbook is brimming with Lovecraft stories, lore, and metric tons of 1920's history to lend any a [...]

      meh. definetly had some interesting moments, and the narrator I had (audio version) was great, but not very exciting otherwise.
