Publisher: Saturday Morning Scenarios

This is a solid jumpstart to a game that I can't wait to see have a successful Kickstarter and release! Mixing Call of Cthulhu with 5e mechanics was something that I wanted to see ever since I tried COC 7e. The book is written well and I'm running "The Crow Man" this Saturday. I'm a big fan of the Victorian Era - New Orleans setting and I'm looking forward to writing scenarios for this game for my group moving forward.

My thoughts after reading through are:

  1. Would it not make more sense for Sanity to be INT+WIS modifier? I'm trying to figure out how CHA correlates to sanity.
  2. Could we potentially look forward to a setting release, or more fleshed out version of New Orleans in the core rulebook?

Re. INT + WIS - as a long-time DnD person that was my original thought too, but 5e has changed the descriptions around and I felt that the comments that Charisma is a measure of "force of personality" made it the key stat. That said it's your table and I encourage folks to adjust based on what they like!

Re. Setting - absolutely. Horror in the Windy City will be Kickstarter March 30th thru April 29th and is a campaign set in Chicago in the late 1800s. New Orleans will continue to be explored in The Crow Man Saga. The next one should be out during the KS (maybe earlier). And I have another book that I'll be crowdfunding later this year that will be explore a third city anda new era. I chat about Whispers a lot on my Twitter if you want to stay in the loop. MT also has a few things up his sleeves too.

Thank you for purchase and the review!
