In the Mail: Call of Cthulhu RPG, Seventh Edition.

This edition of Call of Cthulhu was Kickstarted, but I never got around to backing it.  Lots of stuff going on at the time.  But I had to order something recently (mildly long, not particularly relevant, story), so I figured that I’d grab it.

It’s certainly a very pretty book; the Kickstarter seems to have paid for things like color printing, extensive illustrations, and a bookmark.  I particularly like the inclusion of maps of both Arkham and Lovecraft’s Massachusetts in general; such things are useful for harried GMs trying to shoehorn imaginary locations into real maps.  As to the mechanics… I dunno. Haven’t played it yet.  My regular gaming circle isn’t really big on horror RPGs anyway.  But everybody’s raving about it, so I figure that it can’t be that much of a disaster.

    Huh.
    I could have sworn I backed that. I’d even been wondering why I hadn’t gotten updates or the books.
    But my account says that I didn’t, and my credit card records confirm.
    .
    Either I’ve lost my mind, or slipped through a brane.
    I’m not sure which option is worse.
