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!!!!
