Quick Start Call of Cthulhu Rules
Spread the Joy!
For several years now, Ben Monroe and myself have been plotting to release a Call of Cthulhu Quick Start booklet. The idea being that if we can get one of these booklets into the hands of folks intimidated by the price of a Call of Cthulhu rulebook we can show them what a cool game COC really is. They get to see how characters are made and perhaps play a game before the have to shell out $39.95.
These booklets would be sent to distributors, retailers, and conventions by the hundreds in an attempt to swell the ranks of Tribe Chaosium.
As fate would have it, budgets, and lack of budgets, have delayed this project for many seasons. Earlier this year, we decided to move forward and release the quick start as a PDF.
With the help of two insane, but very cool, folks from Michigan we were able to make this little project come alive.
We passed out between 60 and 100 of these booklets at Gen Con last August. I myself saw several folks who received one come back and buy some books. My mind just boggles when considering what could happen if we a thousand of these into the hands of curious cultists-to-be.
Here’s where you can find them:
http://www.chaosium.com/forms/coc_quick_start_bw.pdf (Has a black and white cover)
http://www.chaosium.com/forms/coc_quick_start_color.pdf (Color cover)
Spread them around wherever gamers can be found.
We appreciate your help!
