The ‘Call of Cthulhu Starter Set’ to Arrive This November

Call of Cthulhu Starter Set (Chaosium Inc.)One of my all-time favorite roleplaying games is about to be available in a starter box to introduce gamers to the world of Lovecrafian horror. This November, Chaosium Inc. will release the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set and it looks as if it’s jam packed with Mythos goodness. The box will carry a very friendly MSRP of $24.99.

From Chaosium:

This Starter Box contains everything you need to start playing Call of Cthulhu—the tabletop roleplaying game of mystery and horror.

Players take on the role of investigators of mysteries, uncovering dark secrets, encountering strange monsters, and thwarting sinister cults. Together, you and your friends create and develop a story in which each of your characters plays a leading role, which could be foiling some dastardly plot or stopping horrors from beyond space and time!

Roleplaying gaming is a social pastime. Everyone works together in a team, each playing an investigator character. One player runs the game—the Keeper of Arcane Lore—who referees the game and presents the story and adventure plots to the other players. Think of it a bit like acting in a drama, but where there isn’t a script. Dice and the rules of the game determine the success or failure for your character’s actions—all while you are propelled into dramatic and nerve-tingling situations! The emphasis is on having fun.

Book 1: Introduction and Alone Against The Flames—a solo introductory adventure, teaching you the basics of Call of Cthulhu as you play through a mystery.
