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!
Last time I reviewed historical eras for Chronicles of Darkness, I got as far as 1500 CE. This is a nice round number so I stopped there but this time I’ll be going up to a specific, world-shaking event: the Fall of the Western Roman Empire. I know this wasn’t a global phenomenon and it plays into a western-centric worldview but it’s a big event in world history and it’s a big event in the World of Darkness as well. Regardless, this set of entries is a great rewind through European history as things get worse and worse. Enjoy!
