Pulp Cthulhu ENnie Nom

Nominated for BEST SUPPLEMENT in the 2017 ENnies, Pulp Cthulhu is something Call of Cthulhu fans have been waiting a long time for... 

Back near the turn of the century, Dustin Wright (the longest-serving member of the Chaosium team, after Greg and Sandy) came up with the concept of a game of Call of Cthulhu "where you might be able to play like Indiana Jones". Thus, "Pulp Cthulhu" was born. 

But then the project hit development hell, languishing there for well over a decade. Happily, when Mike Mason came on board as Call of Cthulhu line editor in 2013, he, Dustin and James Lowder assembled the ancient fragments out of the dust of the ages, and work on Pulp Cthulhu began anew. 

Pulp Cthulhu, the game of "two-fisted adventure, weird science, dark deeds, and brave heroes", was finally released to critical acclaim in December 2016, nearly fourteen years after Dustin's crazy idea. And now it's up for an ENnie.

Please do your bit and vote for Pulp!
