Call of Cthulhu
Come Play Call of Cthulhu with Chaosium!
Call of Cthulhu is the definitive roleplaying game of mystery and horror, in which players take on the role of investigators to uncover the secrets of the cosmos. In the course of a game, the investigations may find themselves battling against crazy cults and horrors from beyond space.
Chaosium, publishers of Call of Cthulhu, will be running two different introductory adventures at PAX Aus, each 2 hours long, for up to 6 players:
The Dead Boarder
"A grisly discovery leads to a mind-shattering experience!"
"Uncover Terrifying Secrets in the Sands below Egypt"
Created by gaming legend Sandy Petersen (Doom, Quake, Civilization, Orcs Must Die!), Call of Cthulhu has won over 50 awards including being inducted into the Academy of Adventure Gaming Art and Design Hall of Fame. If you’ve never played it, or even never played a tabletop RPG before, these two hour intro adventures are an ideal way to give it a try!
Just remember, as Gizmodo.com once said about the game: "No swords. No wizards. Just regular humans, in way over their heads as they work to uncover the mind-shattering horrors of the Lovecraftian mythos. That’s the promise of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and over 30 years later we’re still coming back for more."
