Unnatural Selections #34 - see what the reviewers say about recent Call of Cthulhu releases

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 7th Apr 2020

We've been busy over the last few months getting lots of new product out! Here's what the critics say about our most recent Call of Cthulhu releases:

Harlem UnboundHarlem Unbound 2nd Edition (available in PDF, print to follow)

"An essential Call of Cthulhu 1920s supplement, expanding not just the game we love, but how you view the entire genre and society itself."—Mark Morrison, Call of Cthulhu writer (Horror on the Orient Express, Reign of Terror, Terror Australis, etc)

"Harlem Unbound understands what it is to create atmosphere… this game is set in the world of the Cthulhu Mythos, but more explicitly, it’s set during the Harlem Renaissance... Classes and cultures brush up against each other in a melting pot on its boiling point–and then layer the eldritch horror of the Mythos underneath all of that, and you have a recipe for a game that’s rich and wonderful."—Bell of Lost Souls.

"A R’lyeh different perspective"—Dicebreaker.

Cthulhu Dark Ages (available in PDF, print to follow)

"Cthulhu Dark Ages is a brilliant addition to the line, a book anyone who loves the game needs on their shelf... It has everything the previous edition has and more... a major revision packed with all sorts of new material that the devious cultists operating the Chaosium know you will not be able to resist."—Andrew Logan Montgomery, Exploring the Otherworlds of Fiction, Magic, and Gaming.

"An excellent starting point for what can be a vibrant and dangerous new world for Call of Cthulhu players to go nuts and die in... the entire supplement is a clear indication of the passion the writing team had for the enormity of the project, and deserve serious applause and congratulations for it."—Never Read the Latin.

Alone Against the Frost (available in print and PDF)

"STYLE 5, SUBSTANCE 5. Alone Against the Frost is the best solo adventure new Chaosium has published up to now"—Antonios S. RPGNet.

"If you have a free night to yourself and want to fill it with interesting horror and trauma, this will make the night worthwhile."—Never Read the Latin.

Gateways to Terror (available in print and PDF)

"Short, Sharp Cthulhu: Gateways to Terror delivers three, short doses of horror and does so in an engaging, well designed, and multi-functional fashion."—Reviews from R’lyeh.

"Easy, straightforward, and short, the three simple adventures in Gateways to Terror can lure non-horror players into the Mythos, or give experienced Cthulhu players a fast fix."—Antonios S., RPGNet.

"A wonderful introductory product for getting new Keepers and players into the game"—RPG Imagings (YouTube).

Dead Light and Other Dark Turns (available in print and PDF)

"A strong, lean collection that provides a lot of high-quality playtime... a definite recommendation for keepers and players across the spectrum of experience."—Never Read the Latin.

"STYLE 5, SUBSTANCE 5 - Saturnine Chalice… is one of the best adventures of this length ever written for Call of Cthulhu, and a new favourite to pull on unsuspecting players, especially new ones… The plot will make jaws drop. It is sinister, it is devious, it is complex, it is evil. Dead Light is better than the first time, the six adventure hooks offer interesting ideas, both formulaic and exotic, and... what more does an adventure collection need to do anyway?"—Antonios S. RPGNet.
