Sandy Petersen & Lynn Willis
2011 MARKS THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY of the release of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. To celebrate this important and rare occasion in our Adventure Gaming industry, Chaosium is proud to offer a special binding of the current edition (6th edition) of the Call of Cthulhu rulebook. This 320-page book features thick (3 mm) leatherette hard-covers with the front cover and spine stamped with luxurious gold foil. The interior pages are printed in black ink, on 90 gsm matte art paper. The binding is thread sewn, square backed. Each book is individually shrink-wrapped, with the barcode stickered onto the wrapping so as to not mar the book cover.
Chaosium will offer a one-time printing of this Collector’s Edition.
Call of Cthulhu is Chaosium’s classic roleplaying game of Lovecraftian horror in which ordinary people are confronted by the terrifying and alien forces of the Cthulhu Mythos. Call of Cthulhu uses Chaosium¼s Basic Roleplaying System, easy to learn and quick to play. This bestseller has sold over 300,000 copies worldwide and has won dozens of game-industry awards. In 1996 Call of Cthulhu was elected to the Academy of Adventure Game Design Hall of Fame. In 2003 Call of Cthulhu was voted the #1 Gothic/Horror RPG of all time by the Gaming Report.com community. Call of Cthulhu is well-supported by an ever-growing line of high quality game supplements. This version is completely compatible with all of our previous supplements for Call of Cthulhu.
