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: http://rlyehreviews.blogspot.com/2019/07/mothers-embrace.html 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 […]

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.

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 […]

The Cthulhu Hack Unboxed

I had the opportunity at Spiel 2016 (in Essen) to meet dozens, if not hundreds, of game enthusiasts and chat with them about the unique selling points of The Cthulhu Hack over all the many other options out there. Quick to pick up and fast to get going, the system covers all the essentials needed for investigative role-playing in a book you could probably read […]

From Unformed Realms Review

What caught me by surprise here? Well, this is a review by someone who doesn’t particularly like horror or things Cthulhu, but this review is incredibly positive about the books potential. […]

Review of The Haunter of the Dark

I’m really pleased to see The Haunter of the Dark has received a solid review at RPG Geek, with Eric Dodd running through the essentials in concise fashion (and highlighting a spelling error I’ll have to correct on the next pass). I really enjoyed writing this 88-page guide to mining Lovecraft’s stories to create new adventures. Putting together Thro’ Centuries Fixed (released in November 2016) allowed […]

Review of Convicts & Cthulhu for The Cthulhu Hack

Eric Dodd has been good enough to write up a thorough review of The Cthulhu Hack: Convicts & Cthulhu, as a follow-up to his earlier review of the original source material Convicts & Cthulhu (by the Cthulhu Reborn team for Call of Cthulhu). Eric provides a punchy executive summary: The short summary – if you have Convicts and Cthulhu, you should pick up this light […]

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 […]
