Call of Cthulhu 1st Edition box set - main rulebooks only
Enter the awesome universes of the Cthulhu Mythos, those dread tales in which magic, science, arcane lore, and dark destinies irrevocably sear the lives of those for whom the bizarre and the curious have unseemly attraction.
Specially designed to portray the situations and denizens of the Mythos, CALL OF CTHULHU uses a variant of the BRP system, adding characteristics for Sanity and Education. The first book included is Basic Role-Playing itself.
The second (and by far the largest) book is Call of Cthulhu, which explains the characteristics, skills, occupations, and resources available to Investigators, the many beings specific to the Mythos (deep ones, flying polyps, dimensional shamblers, shantaks, cthonians [sic], Cthulhu, Yog-Sothoth, etc.), full rules for magic and the use of the famous books (the Necronomicon, De Vermiis Mysteriis, Unaussprechlichen Kulten, etc.) which have fascinated readers for decades. This book translates the Mythos fiction into FRP terms. Scenarios are drawn in the style of Lovecraft, not directly from specific stories.
The third book is A Sourcebook for the 1920’s[sic], consisting of non-Mythos data–price lists, plans, maps, distances, thumbnail biographies, as well as garden-variety monsters upon which budding Investigators can sharpen their skills.
There are character and monster silhouettes for play, record sheets, a world map of ‘dig’ sites, and six dice: 1D4, 3D6, 1D8, and 1D20.
