A great free intro to those who may have never played Cthulhu or those considering upgrading to the 7th edition rules.

All you need to play the introductory scenario "The Haunting" or the solo adventure "Alone Against The Flames" which is available from the Chaosium website for free.

Check it out.

This is a very nice face-lift of the CoC quick-start. There really aren't many rule changes, CoC/BRP is still one of the most consistent RPG rule-sets after all this time. I also really liked the new artwork and layout. If this is an indication what the full 7E rule-book will look like, my wallet is ready. 6E really had over-wrought fonts and a really dark look that was hard and painful to read.

If there's only one real downise, it's that at this point it would have been nice to get a new adventure. I can appreciate The Haunting, but assuming it'll be included in 7E like it has been for the past few releases, something new would be nice, especially veteran/returning GMs introducing CoC to new players with this quick-start.

First off: VERY few changes in 7th edition. DON'T GET SCARED OFF BY THOSE WHO SAY OTHERWISE. Your old books are STILL PLAYABLE. These quickstart rules are great. You can play the game for a long time using justr these rules, IF you have a list of occupations because these rules list just a few. So if ypou're on a budget, this plus an oldf copy of the Investigator's Handbook from a previous edition would let you play for yonks. Chargen is simplified, so when switching to the full game, players might want to redo their characters using the full system. As far as I can tell, all of combat and sanity rules are here and they offer all the complexity I need.

Call of Cthulhu is a great setting, and this is a simple yet solid rules system.

Did you like Call of Cthulhu, Editions 1 thru 6? Did you buy the modules, and other products? Own Cthulhu Invictus, Achtung Cthulhu, World War Cthulhu, Atomic Age Cthulhu? Do you own Chaosium's Basic Role Playing Game? Did you like them all? Did you find that with a little tweaking here and there, you could run 1st Edition modules with 6th edition? Did you enjoy a system so universal that you could, quite literally, use Cthulhian horrors to "enhance" your Stormbringer, Hawkmoon, or any other Chaosium setting? Did you like having a system so incredibly universal, that it all fit, nearly seemlessly to other systems/worlds?

Well.... Get ready to THROW THEM ALL AWAY!!! It's a BRAND NEW SYSTEM!!! And it is NOT COMPATIBLE with the old stuff. So... you've got a library full of great products... now useless with the new system.

Along with the website changes (Like those?), looks like Chaosium is changing their system. This is NOT an improvement.

Hopefully, they will publish some form of FREE conversion guide.

But if you are a Call of Cthulhu veteran, who truly loved the product, system and world... give the new edition a miss.

This quick start guide is worth the money spent... Nothing.

7th Edition appears to be nothing more than a fleecing of fans of Call of Cthulhu.

In the immortal words of every Call of Cthulhu player.... RUN!!!!

This has really made me look forward to the next edition of CoC. Clearly written rules & even character creation is included. Definitely worth the price of FREE :)

As someone who's always wanted to play Call of Cthulhu but has never really had the opportunity, I very much appreciate these quick-start rules. They're also a nice "holdover" for players waiting for the 7th edition to ship (which hasn't happened yet, as of this review). Be forewarned, however, that you won't be able to use these rules to play much other than the included adventure; they don't really contain enough for a keeper to devise further adventures using just the quick-start booklet. That adventure, by the way, is written both for new players and new GMs; as an RPG veteran but CoC newbie I thought it hit the mark rather well. The layout is a bit "Microsoft Wordy" and I noticed at least one missing word in some of the read-aloud text for "The Haunting," but these are fairly minor blemishes on an otherwise fine product. It's not a complete game, but you can get at least one good night of gaming out of it, at no cost. I call that a win.
