The Dark Brood Cover

The lurking progeny of the Great Mother, the Eternal Womb, the Black Goat… they lurk in wait. I have work to do to complete the text of The Dark Brood and I have my fingers crossed that I can complete the task in the scant time that remains. However, for the moment, there’s a cover […]

The Cthulhu Hack Redux

I have launched the new version of The Cthulhu Hack core rules through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. This is not a major revision in terms of content, but has undergone a completely fresh layout and a typeface refresh. The book has undergone a brisk tweaking around the edge and I have done my damnedest to bring the […]

Stock Refresh

I have run out of copies of The Cthulhu Hack core book, which means it’s time to get in touch with the printer to order more. However, I’m aware that the current version of the core that I have doesn’t contain the expanded and tweaked version of the Hit Dice as Resource rules. And I […]

Save Innsmouth in 2018

Behind some dread portal 2018 lurks, as 2017 stumbles to a close, blooded and strung out. In the distance, unnatural howls ring out, a guttural noise somewhere between an animal and a cry of pain. Something cuts short the sound… the rumble of machinery, the growl of an engine. The ground shudders as something draws […]

Supply Dice

Supply Dice exist for the tension of the moment. The Cthulhu Hack is not about shopping lists and equipment runs. You can, by all means, go shopping, but the finer detail probably doesn’t matter. If you need a change of clothes or a hire car, go for it. The player can track small change if […]

Pax Cthuliana

I’m midway through running the system-free investigation Pax Cthuliana from NEVR publishing (who also publish the Insight RPG). I went through the read through and prep a fortnight ago and ran the first half last Tuesday – which proved sufficient to get a review up and posted on Geek Native. I mention in the review […]

Bundles of Foreboding

In time for Christmas, but also to make it easier to pick up a bunch of The Cthulhu Hack books without searching, I have created three Bundle offers on RPGNow/DriveThruRPG – with a swanky new bundle graphic. The Cthulhu Hack Core provides you with the essentials – as someone else put it, the Player’s Handbook, […]

Release The Dark Brood

The Dark Brood offers a selection of content that brings the fecundity of Shub-Niggurath front and centre to your game of The Cthulhu Hack; loosing her mindless progeny upon the unsuspecting world. Oddly enough, I started writing this as a basic bestiary entry – perhaps even just a single creature post on this site; in many […]

Conversion, Solo Gameplay 0 comments on The House of Hell

The House of Hell

It was an experiment in the possibilities of solo gaming that occurred to me at work. I genuinely have no recollection of why this struck me when it did, but I had the thought that one or two of the classic Fighting Fantasy books might provide an interesting challenge as solo sessions for The Cthulhu Hack.
