Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft

The Old Ones ruled the earth aeons before the rise of man. Traces of their cyclopean cities can still be found on remote islands, buried amid the shifting desert sands, and in the frozen wastes of the polar extremes. Originally they came to this world from the stars. They sleep now, some deep within the earth or beneath the sea. When the stars are right they shall again walk the earth.

Call of Cthulhu is a tabletop roleplaying game based upon the worlds of H. P. Lovecraft. It is a game of secrets, mysteries, and horror. Playing the role of steadfast investigators, you travel to strange and dangerous places, uncover foul plots, and stand against the terrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. You encounter sanity-blasting entities, monsters, and insane cultists. Within strange and forgotten tomes of lore you discover revelations that man was not meant to know. You and your companions may very well decide the fate of the world.

This book, the Keeper Rulebook, contains the core rules, background, guidance, spells, and monsters of the game. It is intended for use by the Keeper of Arcane Lore (the Keeper) — that player who will present the adventure to the other players. You must have at least one copy of this book to play Call of Cthulhu. The other players, the Investigators, should have one or more copies of the Investigator Handbook, containing expanded rules for character creation, skills, occupations, equipment, and more.

Call of Cthulhu, 7th edition, is backwards-compatible with all other available Chaosium titles.

I am interested in this rulebook, but I would like to get a hard copy as well. Would you consider that option in the near future?

Thanks a lot

Anyone else had an issue with the PDF version of this opening REALLY SLOWLY? I've tried it on multiple devices and with multiple apps on my tablet (where I prefer reading RPG books), and even if I download the file, it seems every time I open it to read, it has to refresh or reformulate the images and text. It's laborious and makes reading it a pain, because every three pages are blank when I turn to them, until it can "refresh" everything and appear. Is it just me? I've downloaded the most recent version according to my library information.

I can't get this PDF to work in Adobe. Keep getting a warning message that Acrobat can't download some embedded font and then get told that Acrobat ran out of memory. None of the fonts are on the page, unless it's zoomed in to some useless degree and even then, if I scroll or flip to another page, the fonts are gone again. The bookmarks have no labels. Other PDF's do not have the problem. Garbage file.

I'm posting here to make sure no one else makes the same mistake i did.
This book should have been called the CORE RULEBOOK, as it contains everything needed for both the keeper and investigators. Had I known this i wouldn't have bought the Investigators Guide, which is supplemental.

Does anyone have an idea when the physical copy will become available? According to the Kickstarter page, they are printing...but unfortunately I was not in on the Kickstarter and will purchase when available on retail.

Would also like to know since 6th also doesn't have a physical copy on here :/
I am also curious about a hardcover version since paperback/soft cover are less durable.

Does this include epub/mobi edition?

I don't know whether this PDF edition includes the EPUB and MOBI eBook formats. It does if you buy the PDF directly from Chaosium.com (speaking from experience here).

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
