About the adventure

This is the game for those of you who enjoy the spooky, mysterious and eldritch, but also enjoy shooting big guns. Ranging from the low-pulp investigative horror mystery, all the way to evil scientists with death rays, Pulp Cthulhu is a game that allows you to experience cosmic horror in whichever flavor you're most comfortable with. With versatile rules for any play-style, I can make all your darkest, most horrific fantasies come true.

Additional Details

How to prepare

It is recommended that players read the Call of Cthulhu Quick-start guide, available for free at Chaosium's website. However, there are differences between regular Call of Cthulhu and Pulp Cthulhu, so it is recommended that they do not attempt to make characters themselves if not familiar with the system.

What I provide

I will provide the Call of Cthulhu Rulebook, the Pulp Cthulhu Rulebook, and the scenario we play.

Gameplay details

As mentioned before, a typical session of Pulp Cthulhu will reflect the desires of the players. Investigation can take a back seat to combat; or unlocking the secrets of the Mythos can be the heroes' primary interest. While roleplay tends to be a strong pillar of the system, there are scenarios which limit its impact or excluded completely. What I would recommend is a roleplay heavy and investigative scenario, with a single, large, combat encounter.
