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.
