Keeper Tips cover

Collected Wisdom on Running Games!

A gathering of wisdom, advice, and tips from Keepers for Keepers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

What's Inside?

Marking the 40th anniversary of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, the pocket-sized guide to running games of Call of Cthulhu has an old-school black & white interior.

Advice from the Veterans

Tips, essays, and contributions from experienced and diverse Call of Cthulhu Keepers including Jason Durall (RuneQuest), Becca Scott (Good Time Society), Sean Branney (H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society), Allan Carrey (Type40), Lynne Hardy (The Children of Fear) Bridgett Jeffries (The Miskatonic Repository), Mike Mason (Call of Cthulhu), and many, many others!

All Topics Covered

The advice in Keeper Tips is spread across a wide range of topics, including preparation, gameplay, inclusivity, designing scenarios, combat, monsters, horror, sanity, and much more!

Transferable Skills

While the advice in Keeper Tips is specifically geared towards Call of Cthulhu, much of the information is transferable to other games as well. The knowledge in this book is easily ported over to games such as RuneQuest and King Arthur Pendragon!

What The Critics Say

"Warm encouragement to tell horrible stories in a kindly way. I bloody love it." — Mark Morrison (Horror on the Orient Express, Terror Australis, Reign of Terror, etc).

"Regardless of your Keeper/GM style, or whether you’re a newcomer or a veteran in the role, there’s some very useful pearls of wisdom in here – and it’s well worth adding to your RPG bookshelf (or that of any Keeper/GM friends you might have) as a result." — Game On Aus.

"Excellent advice for new hobbyists and veterans… though the advice centers around Call of Cthulhu RPG, many passages within can easily apply to any roleplaying game." — Rolling Boxcars.

“(A) lovely slim book of advice from Chaosium luminaries.” — Tabletop Gaming #75 (Jan 2023).

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.
