Just picked up The Cthulhu Campaigns: Ancient Rome.

Because Dark Osprey is still totally a thing.

To those who don’t remember: Dark Osprey is what you get when a publisher of military visual guides (Osprey Publishing) wakes up one morning and says Wait a minute! We have tons of gaming geeks who buy our books! We should pander to them! — While at the same time still providing a product that looks like their ‘regular’ product line. I find that it all works out rather well; I started picking up selected books from this series with Ken Hite’s The Nazi Occult, and I’m happy to add The Cthulhu Campaigns: Ancient Rome to the library.  Although I would have saved money if I had bought the latter from Amazon.  Oh, well, live and learn*.

    Cater, CATER, not pander.

    Allow me at least the illusion of dignity, please.

    I must say that Cthulhu Campaigns looks interesting.

    In a similar vein, I’ve been indulging in the Old Ones inspired Dreadpunk of Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court. I have to say, of all the kickstarter-era retro-styled games I’ve played, this is probably my favorite. Even over Pillars of Eternity.

    How is it? I’m a sucker for Lovecraft and Rome, mainly Rome.
