    Fictional city in 1920s Germany?

    Hello everyone, we are a small group of friends who are passionate about building fictional worlds and adventures in our free time. We finally managed to publish our first adventure after a long time (see below). And hopefully it won't be the last one. To give the whole thing a framework, we...

    BRP players - any variant?

    I’ve noticed we seem to have a lot of Mythras players and a reasonable sprinkling of other BRP variants too (Especially Call of Cthulhu). How many of you play a variant of BRP?

    Announcing the Basic Roleplaying System Reference Document and Open Game License

    As I think it would be highly unlikely that MOB posts here, I thought I'd link the post on BRP Central. Chaosium is pleased to announce the release of the Basic Roleplaying System Reference Document (SRD). The Basic Roleplaying SRD is based on Basic Roleplaying, the simple, fast, and elegant...

    Call of Cthulhu Chat Thread

    Thought we should have one general chat thread on one of the greatest ever RPGs... Jk. I mean Call of Cthulhu. This is the edition I have. This was sparked by this good review of the 7e adventure Dead Light. Looks fun. Someone here recommended this review channel and it is a good one.

    [CoC7e] A Paradigm Shift, or, "You got Pulp in my Modern Cthulhu!"

    Spoiler: Apologies and Background So, I'm running Call of Cthulhu 7th edition, set in modern-day Arkham with the investigators being members of the Theron Marks Society. We left off in the midst of our first adventure on a bit of a cliffhanger note, the overall consensus being "We need bigger...

    Nuke-Con 2018 - The After Action Report

    So, now that I've recovered from my return to Nuke-Con, I'm posting here my after-action report for Nuke-Con 2018. Pre-con prep did not go as well or as quickly as I had planned. My computer was vastly bloated with files (I'm a pack rat when it comes to articles and PDFs), so its functionality...

    RPGs in Japan

    This is a pretty cool video with Andy Kitkowksi, who has translated a number of Japanese RPGs into English, about the RPG scene in Japan. Some quick take aways: - It's kinda cool that CoC is the most popular RPG in Japan (discussed around 2:40). - So Sword World is the most popular fantasy...

    Reign of Terror - CoC Meets the French Revolution

    I recently came across this in hardcover on Amazon. Looks potentially terrific, I love the central idea. Has anyone played it or checked it out? I haven't checked out any modern Chaosium product, although I've got Peterson's Abominations on order, and wonder if they are the same high...

    [Call of Cthulhu] "Modernizing" the Theron Marks manual

    A while back, I came across talk about the "Field Manual of the Theron Marks Society" - a handout that was part of Terror From The Stars. I managed to secure a copy of the adventure along with the handout and read through it. Intrigued, I was inspired to start a new campaign ("Ghosthounds of...

    Chaosium Digests and such

    Ages ago, when the Internet was still new to me, I was on the mailing list for the Chaosium Digest and a few other digests, like a Pendragon mailing list and such. I've packed around these items for ages and have watched as their archives have disappeared from the web. That being said, would...

    Music for Classic Call of Cthulhu

    Well, what the title says. This Sunday I will be running a one-shot for a friend who hasn't ever played CoC and considers it a shame or something :D I like to use music for my games, albeit low volume and non distracting, and so I am always on the hunt for new music, specially as my wife gets...

    Why Games do Cthulhu Wrong?

    Here is a video discussing the topic. It is 6 minutes long and brings up a few interesting points. Maybe no new points, but I am most interested in your opinions on his thoughts on "lack of player agency" and "player control" as important for a Lovecraftian game.
