Dreams of Cthulhu


Pocket wonder: A complete roleplaying game in a condensed format. Mini size, big fun!

The Old Ones lurk just beyond the ken of an unsuspecting world, dreaming of the time when they will rise to devour it. As a member of the secretive Order of the Sentinels, you know the truth about the existence of these alien horrors and will do anything in your power to stop their plans. The rest of the world may think you’re already mad; all you hope for is to keep your sanity long enough to make a difference.

Dreams of Cthulhu is a roleplaying game of Lovecraftian horror in the 1920s, using a d20 system that is easy to learn with just the right amount of crunch. Due to the limited page count, it requires a GM with some experience in running roleplaying games; the game doesn't contain any GM or player advice.

How is Time managed ? I see references to how long spells last etc, but there is no mention of how long a time period a game round represents.

It's in the "Combat" section under the "Rounds" heading. One round = 6 seconds.

I've been playing CoC for over 30 years but I have to say I love your little game. It hits all my Cthulhu buttons in a nice small package!

I'm so happy you're enjoying the game Chris! I love CoC as well, but sometimes it gets tiring carrying huge books to a session.

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.
