In The Call of Cthulhu, Professor Angell leaves a box full of weird articles and newspaper clippings regarding the Cthulhu Cult. Our Prop Master was not content to "dummy up" a few articles and mastheads... oh no. Not him. Instead the film features a collection of 125 unique props, some fabricated from scratch, many recreations of real articles and news stories from historic sources. You cand bring extra fun to your gaming (or other vintage document collecting) with this amazing ensemble of documents.

Relive the entire experience of The Call of Cthulhu through its props. You can pick and choose or even print up the entire collection, provided here as PDF documents. Each comes with easy instructions for making it yourself. The clippings are in a variety of languages, and many are genuinely weird (and a couple are humorous). Prepare to be amazed and disturbed by the level of detail that went into these documents.

Brilliant and Affordable

I would have LOVED to buy the physical Angell Box but at about $1500 AUS it is beyond my budget. However, with this collection of PDFs of many of the documents within the HPLHS Box I can still enjoy the pleasure of my own home-made collection for a fraction of that. Everything is here in Vol. 3 to make one’s own paper props. Obviously there are some physical items in the story, like the clay tablet, that cannot be included but I’m going to try my hand at making those.
Vol. 3 is yet another brilliant collection of Cthulhu props, and something you should put on your Wish List.

More, More great Props

What can I say that I already haven't? Great props for many uses. Get 'em all!

Another Winner

One of the things I really enjoy is getting my hands on the props that the folks at HPLHS produce. They are always high quality and add real value to both DART titles as well as gaming experiences. Manufacturing the "aged" final product is always fun and seeing the look on a player's face is worth the nominal cost and effort.

Prof. Angell's Box Contents

WOW, is about the only word fitting for this collection, if you have the skills to age and distress the documents after you printed them they come out outstanding, you can also include a few of your own or more from the other collections that are available and build a collection of Props worthy of the Prof, getting hold of a steel lock box is a little tricky but there are plenty on certain auction websites for only a few pounds/dollars, well worth the money spent on the collection, would actually have paid more to be honest, a great tribute and worth every penny.
