Cults of Cthulhu, the book all about running cults in Call of Cthulhu, has a print date of March 2022. But you can check it out today.
If you’ve ever played or run a game of Call of Cthulhu, then you understand that at the heart of the cosmic horror-laden RPG are cultists. They’re villains and foils, they are people who are so hungry for power they’d see the world ruined and devoured if they thought it might help them. Or is there something else to it? What makes a cultists follow a Great Old One?
Chaosium’s newest CoC sourcebook, Cults of Cthulhu, wants to explore exactly that. Cults of Cthulhu will take you inside the world of Cthulhu cults with new antagonists, scenarios, and rules for creating your own cultists.
If you want a guide for making your games feel atmospheric, here you go. This will teach you how to portray the people who so often run afoul of investigators who just want to go to a 1920’s party without having to fight a shoggoth.
At long last, the intricacies of the nefarious Cthulhu cult are revealed!
Cults of Cthulhu gives you the rules to inject fully-realized and unique Cthulhu cults directly into your campaigns, and create your own antagonists. The tome also contains three scenarios featuring insidious Cthulhu cults spanning from the Gaslight era to the modern day.
