Enter the awesome universe of the Cthulhu Mythos, those dread tales in which magic, science, arcane lore and fetid horror irrevocably sear the lives of those for whom the bizarre and the curious have unseemly attraction. A universe where the veneer of normalcy is ever threatened by the plots and manifestations of the unutterably evil Old-Ones [sic] whose minions strive for the return and rule of their mighty and foul Lord, the Great Cthulhu.
Call of Cthulhu is a sophisticated, open-format game without conventional board or playing pieces, the action and events take place in the imaginations of the players and gamesmaster.
As a player in Call of Cthulhu you are cast in the role of an Investigator piecing together clues and histories of the mythos as move through the world of the fabulous 1920's [sic]. As a Gamesmaster (keeper) you will present this world to the players and control the cosmic horrors underlying the events of the time.
This volume contains all the information needed to play Call of Cthulhu and provide for many hours of fascinating involvement in a world of gothic horror in the true Lovecraft tradition.
“....but I shall never sleep calmly again when I think of the horrors that lurk ceaselessly behind life in time and in space, and of those unhallowed blasphemies from elder stars which dream beneath the sea, known and favoured by a nightmare cult ready and eager to loose them on the world whenever another earthquake shall heave their monstrous stone city again to the sun and air.”
