If you've ever heard of the celebrated role playing game of Lovecraftian horror but didn't know where to begin, this is for you! The game's publisher, Chaosium, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a new edition of the CoC Starter Set. It has everything you need to play Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu™ game with your friends.
The set includes:
- Book 1: Introduction and Alone Against The Flames—a solo introductory adventure, teaching you the basics of Call of Cthulhu as you play through a mystery.
- Book 2: Call of Cthulhu Starter Rules—the essential rules, everything needed for starting play.
- Book 3: Adventures—three starter adventures for your players to explore.
- Ready to Play Investigators—five ready to play game characters.
- Blank Investigator Sheets—ready for creating your own investigators.
- Roleplaying Dice – a set of six polyhedral dice for use in the game.
- Player Handouts – a set of ready to use props.
So even if you've never played and don't quite know how it works, this set will walk you through the rules with some great solo play. Then you'll be ready to have some friends over (or play online) for an unforgettable excursion into supernatural horror.
WARNING: this game is so much fun, that once you start playing with your friends, in 40 years you might find yourself running a Lovecraftian Historical Society.
