Mother’s Love Review

I missed this review for Mother’s Love—the hardback/PDF release for Cthulhu Hack featuring four writers new to the system knocking it out of the park.

The review is here:

The skip to the end summary:

Mother’s Love is a solid collection of scenarios, each easy to run, each easily adapted to the mechanics of the Keeper’s choice, and each entry exploring a different aspect of Shub-Niggurath. None of the three is unplayable, but ‘Ġgantija’ is the standout, presenting opportunity aplenty for some great roleplaying, almost like actors being offered juicy roles.

You can pick up the PDF as part of Christmas in July:

Three Faces of the Wendigo – Reviews from R’lyeh

I got the first review in yesterday for Three Faces of the Wendigo from Matthew Pook over on Reviews from R’lyeh.

It can be a tough old deal handling reviews and criticism, but the feedback runs along the lines of generally positive with a last sentence conclusion of:

Overall, Three Faces of the Wendigo is a decent trilogy of one-shot or demonstration scenarios.

I know that experiences and reviews will vary – and I know that of the sessions I have heard back from or run myself that the adventures have gone down well. If you’re interested in checking them out yourself, you can get the PDF of Three Faces of the Wendigo from RPGNow by itself or as part of the Investigations Bundle.

If you’d prefer a physical book, Three Faces of the Wendigo is available through All Rolled Up’s web store.

Wildly Speculative

Website Reviews from R’yleh has posted a review about The Cthulhu Hack: Convicts & Cthulhu – which just recently picked up Best Copper Seller on DriveThruRPG (which is no mean feat for a Pay What You Want, as only paid purchases count!). You may see certain comments about the adventure therein and use of the term “faintly ridiculous”, which on the face of it is not a bad thing as a one-time writer for PARANOIA. I could have done with more ridiculous at times, faint or otherwise.

Anyway, I leave this list here, on the off chance you care to take a look, because even Fake News is news of a sort and fiction has a heritage of playing with alternate timelines, strange theories and unfounded rumours. Really, many writers of Lovecraftian fiction still rely on strange tales and urban legends, weird claims and left-field theories, as the source of their work.

On another note, the print run of The Cthulhu Hack: Convicts & Cthulhu runs low and will not be reprinted. At the moment, you can get a copy if you buy all the Cthulhu Hack books or one of the multi-book box sets. The PDF will remain available through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG.

Full review on Reviews from R’lyeh

Pookie, over on Reviews from R’lyeh, has posted a substantial and thorough review of The Cthulhu Hack.

The old black cover with Elder Sign stands stark on the page – and I have a few of those lying around. That simplicity now adorns boxes and dice, while the books have moved on to fantastic art from Pete Amachree, Apolonis, Marina Krivenko, and Henning Ludvigsen.

The Cthulhu Hack is … stripped back and it does provide an elegant means for discovering clues and handling investigations in the form of Flashlights and Smokes. … The Cthulhu Hack offers a clean, simple, and unfussy approach to Lovecraftian investigative horror that feels refreshing compared to similar RPGs.

For anyone who hasn’t been over to RPGNow recently, The Haunter of the Dark is riding high – no. 3 in the Hottest Small Press and no. 4 in the Top 100 Products (with The Cthulhu Hack at no. 38).

The Haunter of the Dark takes HP Lovecraft’s final Mythos tale of doomed writer Robert Blake and guides you, in clear steps, through the process of turning it into an adventure for The Cthulhu Hack.
