GUIDELINES FOR PLAYING CALL OF CTHULHU IN SEVEN DIFFERENT ERAS

On release back in 1981, the initial setting of Call of Cthulhu focused upon the “classic” 1920s-era of the early twentieth century — the time of H.P. Lovecraft. It did not take long for players to realize the potential of the game —that it could adapt easily to other time periods.

Over the last thirty-plus years, players have been confronting the Cthulhu Mythos in all manner of historical settings: be it the Dark Ages, Imperial Rome, the Dreamlands, Victorian Gaslight-era, or even the far future! The minions of the Great Old Ones can always be found, lurking in the shadows.

The latest edition of Call of Cthulhu includes investigator occupations, equipment, and weapons for both the 1920s and modern-day settings, allowing for games to be set either time-frame. In due course, other published settings will be updated to the latest edition of the rules; however, Cthulhu Through The Ages has been created to help players adopt the latest rule set for the wide range of settings published by Chaosium.

Here you will find straight-forward guidance and era-specific rules for investigator creation for seven different settings. Also offered are updated rules for combat and a sprinkling of other topics like scenario seeds, setting-specific monsters, and investigator organizations.

Eras & Settings included:

  • Cthulhu Invictus
  • Mythic Iceland 
  • Cthulhu Dark Ages
  • H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands
  • Cthulhu by Gaslight
  • Cthulhu Icarus
  • The Reaping

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.
