About Cthulhu Britannica London

The Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set is the ultimate guide to running games of Call of Cthulhu set in London.

The Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set comprises three books: The Investigator's Guide to LondonThe Keeper's Guide to London and Adventures in Mythos London.
CBL_threebooks550

The Investigator’s Guide to London is a comprehensive guide to the capital in the 1920s. It contains, amongst other things, information on public transport, the bustling party scene, the people and a whole lot about the places investigators might go in the course of your adventures. Great for both players and Keepers alike, and packed full of maps and beautiful artwork.

Secondly is the Keeper’s Guide to London, which is strictly for the Keeper’s eyes only! This book is jammed full of ideas for running Call of Cthulhu adventures set in London, including new cults and Mythos threats, advice for capturing the unique feel of the city, a ready-made private club devoted to investigating the weird and wonderful, and a whole swathe of NPCs and plot hooks that you can use in your own games.

The final book is Adventures in Mythos London, which includes three complete, standalone adventures set in the capital city: Terror on the Thames, by Peter Wright, which has the investigators caught up in a night to remember on a boat trip down the river; Those Poor Souls Who Dwell in Light, by Call of Cthulhu 7thedition author Paul Fricker, which concerns the sins of Reverend Leigh, a vicar who has come into possession of a potent artefact; and The Non-Euclidean Gate, by Mark A. Latham, which is all about what happens when seven pages from one of John Dee’s notebooks turns up unexpectedly on the open market.

But that’s not all that will be included in the boxed set: we also have six sheets of beautifully designed handouts for you to use in your games (in the physical edition these will be die-cut - you'll have to print and cut them out for yourself in the PDF edition). Some of these are taken from the scenarios in Adventures in Mythos London, others completely new to inspire your own scenarios.

The physical boxed set also contains four poster maps, including a beautifully illustrated Macdonald Gill map of Central London - these are included at screen resolution in the PDF version.

Last weekend Cubicle 7 exhibited at Dragonmeet, a UK convention held annually in London. We were delighted once again to welcome Joe Dever as our guest, and the Lone Wolf Adventure Game was our runaway success of the con.
LoneWolfBox
Loads of attendees were delighted to discover that the Lone Wolf Adventure Game costs just £20/$30. That's not some time limited, promotional price: We ran a very successful Kickstarter and sank all the loot into making the game at a really high standard for a very low price.

We love a lavish boxed set with everything you need to play. We love new gamers. We also love brick and mortar gaming stores. We've brought these three passions together in the Lone Wolf Adventure Game.

It's a complete roleplaying game suitable for total newbies, seasoned gamers and established fans of Joe's world of Magnamund.  It's an ideal entry point for stores to offer curious would-be rpgers, at a realistic price.

In the game you take the role of Kai Lords – protectors of the realm of Sommerlund. The Kai are an order of warrior monks with special powers. They roam the land of Sommerlund taking care of it's people and dealing with any threats from the Darklords, who's evil agents are always abroad, spreading strife.

The rules start out at about the level of complexity you'll find in Joe's solo gamebooks, but with a series of add ons the rules build into a full roleplaying game that teaches you as you play.
Lone Wolf Characters

In the box you get 3 softcover, full colour books, a gatefold “Read this first” pamphlet, a sheet of tokens, pregenerated characters presented as lovely gatefolds, some blank character sheets, a map (every adventure game needs a map!), an equipment list, and some handy rules reference sheets. All for just £20/£30.

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game hit US stores this week. It is en route to the UK, Europe and beyond, and people are getting excited!

Here's a selection of reviews of the jamb-packed $30/£20 box set to date:

Paul at Geek Native: http://www.geeknative.com/53330/legends-begin-here-a-review-of-lone-wolf-adventure-game/

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game strikes a nice balance between simplicity and complexity. As a starter set, the pre-generated characters and introductory adventure let you play within minutes. Once you’re done, you have all the rules you need to create characters of your own or advanced the ones in the box… and a whole world to explore. The simplicity of the Initiate rules makes it accessible to children or curious adults alike.

Over at our Google+ community Jimbo Hawkins had this to say:

I backed the Kickstarter, so I'm reading through my copy now.

Firstly, if you're a fan of the original game books, there's plenty of familiar territory for you.  The setting is as rich and interesting as I remember, with just the right amount of detail to get you started.

Secondly, the game mechanic from the books has been lifted, polished and improved for a multi-player game.  Cubicle 7 have included an introductory adventure you can jump right into with the provided pre-generated characters which will teach you the game system step-by-step....

...Cubicle 7 have included all of the core rules you'll need to play the game and create your own adventures set in Magnamund.

Thirdly, the box and it's content have excellent production values.  The books and materials are gorgeous, and the artwork really evokes the Lone Wolf setting.

Finally, I think this is an ideal entry-level RPG for anyone wanting to get into the hobby, or for anyone introducing beginners to role-playing, especially children.  The Initiate/Master rules are a great idea to provide different levels of complexity for beginners and veterans alike.

Highly recommended.
