Out of the Suitcase #16: So what's the scoop on Call of Cthulhu Classics?
Posted by Michael O'Brien on 4th Jul 2021
Chaosium President Rick Meints shares stories from a life-time as a collector of all things Chaosium.
With the recent launch of our Kickstarter a lot of people have been asking what's scoop on Call of Cthulhu Classics? Since I did a lot of the work, I am happy to explain...
We scanned in near mint condition original printed products. The art was cleaned up. The text was OCR'd and thoroughly checked. Original typos were corrected and all errata was incorporated into the text. The layout was redone in a style very very similar to the originals, but standardized across all of the books. This is great for Call of Cthulhu fans who don't own these long out-of-print releases but would like to. You don't have pay collector prices on Ebay for these any more.
And for Call of Cthulhu fans who do already own them? Well, in these remastered supplements we're adding additional bonus content by the early authors, including designer's notes, bonus scenarios, articles from various sources, some history, plus a few other surprises.
The boxes are much thicker and sturdier than the originals too, more like the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set.
Here's our Kickstarter video where I give some more info on what we're doing:
