We’ve hit another major milestone over at the World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter – £30,000 and 400 backers! This means we’ve unlocked the Handouts PDF, free to every backer at a reward level (you can read a bit more about them here).
World War Cthulhu: Cold War is a Call of Cthulhu setting full of thrilling espionage, tense horror and sudden betrayal set at the height of the Cold War in the 1970s. The Kickstarter runs until 5pm on Tuesday, 21st July, and there are some great books for you to get your hands on – including a deluxe, limited-edition copy of the core setting book. You can pledge your support here.
Of course, hitting the £30,000 mark means it’s time to declassify a whole new set of stretch goals – there are some great things coming up, making the core book and supplements even bigger and better value.
We're particularly excited about the stretch goal that unlocks if we hit £40,000 – we’ll print up sets of gorgeous physical, die-cut card Handouts! To help us unlock the physical Handouts as soon as possible, you can add it to your rewards now by upping your pledge by £10. The Handouts are Kickstarter exclusive, so you won’t be able to get these anywhere else except by backing the Kickstarter.
With a whole new set of exciting stretch goals ahead of us, it’s even more important that we all work together to spread the word of the Kickstarter! So please share to Facebook, Twitter and G+, as well as start threads on your favourite forums and tell all your friends. The more backers we get, the more stretch goals we’ll hit and the better the supplements will be for everybody!
About World War Cthulhu: Cold War
We're launching a brand-new setting for Call of Cthulhu, set at the height of the Cold War in the 1970s, one of the most paranoid and chaotic conflicts of the 20th century.
If you love the novels of John Le Carré (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy et al), shows like Homeland, The Americans and The Sandbaggers, or comics like Greg Rucka’s Queen & Country then this is the Call of Cthulhu setting for you!
But we need your help to bring this setting to life with a bang, create the best core setting book possible and develop awesome expansions. As a backer, you can choose from a range of rewards including a copy of the hardcover core setting book, a deluxe edition of the core book, and a range of supplements to really get you started! There’s loads more detail about what’s included below.
The Cold War setting forms part of our wider World War Cthulhu line, which covers a range of conflicts (see here for more info). You don’t need any other World War Cthulhu products to play Cold War – it is a standalone setting – but it forms a part of the over-arching World War Cthulhu narrative. You will need a copy of the Call of Cthulhu Rulebook.
We want to bring you a fantastic new hardback setting book filled with evocative background, intriguing mysteries, inspirational advice and stunning artwork, to really do this era justice. Not only are we offering you the chance to get hold of the World War Cthulhu: Cold War hardback core book, but also to get a very limited-edition deluxe copy of the book too.
If you’ve seen any of our books before, you’ll know we pride ourselves on our high production values, and World War Cthulhu: Cold War will be no exception. Cubicle 7’s previous Call of Cthulhu products come very highly recommended, and have won ENnie and Origins Awards.
As well as the award winning core Cubicle 7 team, we’ve assembled an awesome team of industry heavyweights such as Mike Mason (Call of Cthulhu line editor at Chaosium), Paul Fricker (co-author of Call of Cthulhu 7th edition), Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan (line developer for The Laundry RPG and author of The Darkening of Mirkwood for The One Ring) and Scott Dorward (line developer for World War Cthulhu). We’ll have amazing art from the likes of Jon Hodgson, Scott Purdy and others.
