WWCLondonpackshotPre-order World War Cthulhu London now!   World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour meets Cthulhu Britannica London as the blitz comes to London and N's Auxiliaries struggle on two fronts.  Can they keep the home fires burning while holding back the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos?

London 1941. The blackout reigns. Only the burning, bombed-out buildings and raking searchlights defy the War Office order that has cast the city into darkness.

The nightly rain of German bombs brings death and destruction to the capital. By day you try to not talk about the looming threat of invasion, and how you miss having belly full of real food. At night you huddle in the Tube and sing songs to distract you from the inky darkness.

But there are far more terrifying threats in that darkness than mere German bombs: Twisted and ancient forms released from their long-forgotten prisons; inhuman scavengers drawn by the carnage to feast; depraved cults with demented plans to take advantage of the chaos...

• Create investigators belonging to N’s Auxiliaries, civilians recruited to battle the agents of the Mythos threatening the Home Front
• Learn all about life during the London Blitz and the threats – both Mythos and mundane – that lurk in the blackout
• Discover how London landmarks have been affected by the war
• Construct effective scenarios with the London Blitz as your backdrop
• Explore wartime London with three complete, prewritten scenarios

This supplement brings the horrors of the Mythos to London in the 1940s. It is intended for both the World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour and Cthulhu Britannica: London settings.

The PDF is available now, hardcover anticipated Spring 2016.

Our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter has been a huge success and we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our backers who supported us and helped spread the word. Thanks to you all we hit our funding target within the first 3 hours, then went on to hit nine stretch goals, the campaign closing out at £42,607 (that's over $66,500!), far exceeding our expectations! So thank you!

Because we hit so many of our stretch goals, we'll be able to make both the Core Setting Book and many of the supplements even better than we otherwise could have. Here's how it all ended up:

  • 256-page Core Setting Book - with extra material on the intelligence theatres of the Cold War as well as a section on operations in the UK.
  • Limited-edition, deluxe version, foil-stamped of the Core Setting Book.
  • 6-part campaign - Yesterday's Men.
  • 6-scenario supplement - Covert Actions.
  • Player's Guide - Section 46 Operations Manual.
  • A set of die-cut card handouts - Kickstarter exclusive!

Don't worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter - everything except the handouts will available in gaming stores worldwide next year. But, to make sure you don't miss out next time - make sure you sign up to our newsletter!

We had a busy week on the blog last week, not only asking “what do you do?” in World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at how the new setting relates to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, but also releasing Keltia in stores and the latest supplement for Yggdrasill, Uppsala, for pre-order.

This week is even more action packed, as we’ve got a new PDF supplement for The Laundry RPG coming out as well as unveiling the cover for the next supplement for Kuro. We’ll also be continuing our delve into the background for World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at the other supplements we've got planned for it.

But that’s all for later in the week – what’s going on today?

World War Cthulhu is a series of settings for Call of Cthulhu, each taking one of the conflicts of the 20th century to be its focus. Each of these settings stands alone, but they all exist as part of the same continuity, with plots, characters and events from one setting continuing to have ripples into the past and the future. And this means if you’ve played our Second World War setting, World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, you’re going to want to check out our Kickstarter for World War Cthulhu: Cold War too.
