Dec 20, Perry Lake rated it it was amazing Shelves: I enjoy role-playing and I love the Cthulhu Mythos. I'm glad they came out with this book, using the d20 system that most gamers already know. I ran games using this great book for two years and I still use it for reference and enjoyment.
Some of the insights into the Mythos are quite enlightening. View 1 comment. Aug 08, Michelle rated it did not like it. Jun 06, Chris Youngblood rated it did not like it Shelves: I'll come right out and say it: I hate - with a fiery passion and a gut-churning loathing - the D20 system. Furthermore, I hate all of the substandard dreck that has been put out as a result of the Open Game License that WotC tacked on to their sub-par and faux-roleplaying roleplaying game.
Unfortunately, when all that my fellow RP'ers want to play is a system that I loathe, I have little choice but to play it with them, if I want to play at all. When I saw this book available on the shelves, I I'll come right out and say it: When I saw this book available on the shelves, I admit that I was curious to see how well the percentile-based system found in Chaosium's line of Call of Cthulhu books would translate over.
Unfortunately, not well at all.
The whole purpose of the original Call of Cthulhu game was to evoke a sense of oppressive doom and inevitable insanity or destruction at the hands of The Great Old Ones. While evoking a mood relies greatly on the person running the game as well as the players , I feel a system can add or detract greatly to this effort.
In this case, it detracted. The D20 system has, in my opinion, done little to actually enhance the 'story' aspects of roleplaying, instead distilling a game session down to nothing more than a series of dice rolls and number-crunching.
Very little emphasis is put towards developing a character or actually playing out the risks of madness and decline that a game as classic as Call of Cthulhu is meant to inspire. Even the Sanity rolls, an integral part of the original percentile-based system, have a kind of 'tacked on' feel to them. While the mileage may vary for others, I have to say that I was disappointed greatly in this supplement. Oct 20, Jeff rated it really liked it Recommends it for: To a certain degree, there is an "If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Chaosium's "BRP" version of the game has stood the test of time well. The rules are robust and the game also has the advantage of dozens and dozens of supplemental materials. Why a d20 version? It was never intended as a major product line. Does it lend itself to a slightly "pulpier" feel? Maybe, maybe not. Does it let d20 players experience an authentic Lovecraftian horror game without learning a new system? Horror games are about player buy-in, not rules mechanics IMO.
Toward that end, the GM section offering advice for running horror is some of the best I've ever seen, regardless of system.
If you already own or play the original, I can think of no reason to switch to the d20 version, but it's well worth a read. If you are a d20 player —or more comfortable in that rule system— this game will serve you well. Jul 05, Caleb Wachter rated it really liked it Shelves: This particular module does a nice job of presenting a Cthulhu-style sandbox in which to play.
I've never had trouble using this module to create a fun, memorable campaign which ends invariably with half the characters dead, and the other half on a Haldol drip with a straitjacket securely fastened around their torsos ; But I will admit that this adaptation to the d20 system is definitely not all it can be. The older system was less about rolling dice and more about thinking together.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of modern gamers want something which resembles WoW, which really neuters a game like this one or, to a lesser extent, the World of Darkness stuff like Vampire: The Masquerade.
