New for Fantasy Grounds VTT: A Cold Fire Within is a campaign for Pulp Cthulhu. Set in 1935, a missing person case leads to the discovery of a foul plot that could change time itself and bring disaster to the world.
Complete with New Rules, Skills, and Psychic Powers!
A Cold Fire Within is a complete six-part campaign for Pulp Cthulhu. It presents new rules and skills for psychic powers--Parapsychology, Dematerialization, and Telepathy--new spells, details of the people and lands of K'n-yan, as well as a new hero organization--the Open Mind Group. Six ready-to-play heroes are provided.
What the critics say about A Cold Fire Within:
- "As a campaign, A Cold Fire Within does something different. There have been plenty of scenarios for Call of Cthulhu which deal with the Science Fictional aspects of Lovecraft’s Cosmic Horror, but not a campaign. It is very much not a campaign of Lovecraftian investigative horror in the eldritch sense, but rather one of fringe science—or ‘Science!’ and fringe theories ranging from Theosophy to the Hollow Earth."—Reviews from R'lyeh.
- "Distanced as Pulp Cthulhu is from its better known big brother, it keeps on producing quality adventures that can't be easily found elsewhere. The first thing that struck me while preparing the adventure was how it managed to be both pulp and retain a firm anchor to reality. It blends together elements which on first sight don't have many things in common. The pseudoscience of the paranormal is one of them; the adventure strikes home the idea that back in the 1930s the scientific method was still used to prove or debunk weirdo theories that mostly belong to mythology. Nice!"—Antonios S. review, RPGNet.
