Today I’m going to do something slightly self-serving, but also to spread the word about some awesome projects. There are always tons of Kickstarter projects going on and I know that I hate it when I miss out on ones that I would have loved to back. Today I’m going to tell you about three that I’m currently backing and why. Maybe you’ll jump on too!Continue reading “Ongoing Kickstarters to Jump On”
I love everything having to do with the Roman Empire. I think it’s the mix of familiar places and then exotic names and culture. I also love everything Lovecraftian so needless to say Cthulhu Invictus was pretty high up on my list. When Golden Goblin Press announced that they were Kickstarting a new version using the 7th Edition ruleset, needless to say that I was pretty excited. The Golden Goblins told me that the supplement will be available soon on their site but in the meantime, here’s what you can expect!
I’ve been a big fan of Bill Bryson for years, ever since I read his amazing A Walk In the Woods in middle school. He’s hilarious and interesting and he makes topics that would otherwise be very dry (from the history of English to a drive through the American Midwest) into page-turners. One of his latest book is One Summer, the story of June, July, and August 1927 in America, and it’s not only a great read but it’s a resource waiting for your early-twentieth-century campaign.
I really love the Achtung! Cthulhu setting for Call of Cthulhu from Modiphius Press. It’s also for Savage Worlds (using Realms of Cthulhu), but I started into the mythos through the original game and it just doesn’t feel like Cthulhu to me unless I’m rolling percentile dice.
Modiphius has put out two amazing long-term campaigns (Shadows of Atlantis, which I’m currently running, and Assault on the Mountains of Madness which is eagerly awaiting a chance at the table) as well as a series of short scenarios that can be part of a linked campaign or stand-alone. Already looking to expand the options, however, I went through other published Call of Cthulhu scenarios looking for scenarios that you could easily use for an Achtung! Cthulhu game.
