You uncover mysteries in dusty libraries and bloody crime scenes. You walk the mean streets of Chicago or hack through the jungles of the South Pacific. You battle vile cults, or recoil in terror at the alien enormities they worship. You follow the clues wherever they lead, whatever the cost in life or sanity. But do you dare to follow... the trail of Cthulhu?
A stand-alone GUMSHOE game based on the works of HP Lovecraft
By Kenneth Hite
Trail of Cthulhu is a new GUMSHOE system game under license to Chaosium, set in the 1930s.
It supports both Pulp (for Indiana Jones, Robert E. Howard, thrilling locations sorts of games) and Purist styles of play(for intellectual horror and cosmic dread). HP Lovecraft's work combined both, sometimes in the same story.
It includes a new take on the creatures, cults and gods of the Lovecraft's literature, and addresses their use in gaming. It adds new player backgrounds, and bulk out the GUMSHOE system to give intensive support for sanity, incorporating into the rule set the PCs desire to explore at the risk of going mad.
It may not be possible to ship very heavy items outside of the Mainland UK.
