Compatibility Hack

The association between The Black Hack and The Cthulhu Hack is a funny old thing. In the 3 years that both games have existed, an explosion of other supplements and expansions of the former have appeared. In the meantime, TCH has drifted along a path of its own. What does that mean? It means that many elements of The Cthulhu Hack are backward compatible with […]

Cthulhu Hack Update

The Cthulhu Hack had a 2nd birthday last month and the line continues to grow. At the core, we have the three core books, along with two books of adventures, and other books filled with campaign materials, like The Dark Brood and Convicts & Cthulhu. Good moment for an update. The Cthulhu Hack Website It seemed like as good a time as any to put […]

January 2017 Update

Where did January go? A quiet month with no releases, as my efforts have been focused under the hood, so to speak. I have been wrangling writers for a trio of adventures to be released Quarter 2 or 3. I will be one of those writers, but the other two I’ll keep under wraps for the time being. The adventures will focus on the same […]

Cthulhu Hack 2016 and Beyond

I think that 2016 warrants celebration because of everyone reading this – and many who aren’t – who picked up a copy of The Cthulhu Hack or one of the supplements and adventures that followed. The success of The Cthulhu Hack took me somewhat by surprise. It also filled me with a sense of creativity and energy that saw 200-pages of content crafted over a […]

I Can Endorse This

Noted a nice summary review by T to the E to the O in the Google+ RPG Enthusing community of The Cthulhu Hack: I’ve read through it, and quite enjoyed seeing how The Black Hack was further hacked for the sake of Cosmic Horror. In The Cthulhu Hack, researching, recalling, and noticing things are handled using a Flashlights die. In the same way, chatting people up, persuasion, […]

The Cthulhu Hack – June 2016

I just wanted to post where I was up to on the current stack of upcoming material for  The Cthulhu Hack. Expect a slightly updated copy of the PDF of the core rules in the near future. As well as including a new Cthulhu cover image by talented artist Henning Ludvigsen – along with the existing ones so you have the option to do home printing […]

More Cthulhu, More Cake

I have a birthday weekend ahead of me, so unlikely to spend much time actually creating any new content or materials. However, that’s not to say that I haven’t been at work on some level or another. I have ordered proof copies of a couple of format styles for The Cthulhu Hack book with the aim of having these available at UK Games Expo. While I […]

The Hacked Haunting

In running one of my playtest sessions for The Cthulhu Hack, I decided to use an old Call of Cthulhu classic – The Haunting – to see if I could handle a conversion. You can get hold of the original for free as part of the Quick Start for 7th Edition or earlier editions. I remember playing The Haunted House (as it was called) back in […]
