If you’re looking for an all new setting to challenge your Call of Cthulhu investigators you’ll certainly want to get your hands on the latest supplement from Chaosium! Atomic Age Cthulhu bridges the gap between the classic CofC set in the 1920s and the ever growing popularity of the modern Mythos scenarios. Now your players can battle Deep Ones while rocking out to Buddy Holly or ogle Miskatonic co-eds in bobby socks or BMoCes coiffed in ducktails before setting out to unravel mysteries man was simply never meant to solve. The supplement is available now as a 224 page softcover for $31.95 or as a PDF download for $18.12.
NEVER BEFORE had the world faced a threat as potentially devastating as the A-bomb—and the even more lethal H-bomb that followed. Educational films showed how to “survive” a nuclear blast by crawling under a desk, as if a few inches of wood made any difference. In movie theaters, classic monsters of the ‘30s and ’40s were replaced by atom-spawned horrors. Unseen enemies were everywhere: from devilish rock-and-roll music to morally-corrupt books such as Lolita and Catcher in the Rye. Comic-books corrupted the minds of our youths, and godless Communists constituted a red menace to be stopped using any means necessary.
Atomic-Age Cthulhu brings Lovecraftian horror roleplaying into the post-war golden age. Here you find background and history that led to the development of the 1950s world, along with new skills and professions for your investigators. A number of Sinister Seeds are included to help you grow your own ‘50s horrors, but seven complete adventures are ready for you to spring on your unsuspecting players.
