And we're off! – our Kickstarter campaign for Cthulhu Tales is now live!
Cthulhu Tales is a brilliant, creepy story telling card game of the Cthulhu Mythos, designed by Francesco Nepitello and Marco Maggi.
Those of you familiar with our other story telling card game, Hobbit Tales, may recognise some of the core mechanic, but the rules for Cthuhu Tales have been considerably developed, giving it a unique Mythos feel.
We're planning a very straightforward Kickstarter campaign. We love a twenty product extravaganza as much as the next gamer, but we also increasingly appreciate nice simple campaigns with a clear goal and a handful of pledge levels. Happily, that's what we felt we needed for Cthulhu Tales.
To get you started the game rulebook is available to download over at the Kickstarter page.
In relating the circumstances which have led to my confinement within this refuge for the demented, I am aware that my present position will create a natural doubt of the authenticity of my narrative.
– The Tomb, by H.P. Lovecraft
The early 20th century. New England, America. Lovecraft country.
Home to university libraries filled with worm-eaten tomes, legend-haunted towns populated with degenerate locals and their rustic superstitions, Cyclopean ruins from long-forgotten aeons, and the disquieting glimpses of things from beyond…
You are the unwilling guests of an antiquated sanatorium, perhaps the infamous Arkham Sanatorium, or maybe the Danvers State Asylum.
Your only hope of escape is to convince the sanatorium authorities, and perhaps yourself, that you do not belong here. And so you begin to explain the sinister series of events that led to your unjust incarceration.
