I page through and share my thoughts on the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Investigator Handbook hardcover from Chaosium Inc. Is this an essential for Call of Cthulhu players old and new? Or should you set your prying eyes elsewhere? You’re about to find out.

While I have some minor critiques and personally wouldn't want some of the background info contained within in the hands of my players, the Investigator Handbook is jam packed with info designed to get players up and running in CoC without muss or fuss. There's loads of material just as useful (if not more so) to Keepers as it is for Investigators. In fact, I believe this volume is actually more essential to Game Masters than it is for players. All in all an extremely well presented CofC tome; even if I might not use it in the exact ways the writers intend.
