Horror genre Elements of his work have appeared over the years in numerous horror arenas but now roleplayers can delve into a campaign centered around the author's popular I ll come right out and say it I hate with a fiery passion and a gut churning loathing the D20 system Further I hate all of the substandard dreck that has been put out as a result of the Open Game License that WotC tacked on to their sub par and faux roleplaying roleplaying game Unfortunately when all that my fellow RP ers want to play is a system that I loathe I have little choice but to play it with them if I want to play at all When I saw this book available on the shelves I admit that I was curious to see how well the percentile based system found in Chaosium s line of Call of Cthulhu books would translate overUnfortunately not well at all The whole purpose of the original Call of Cthulhu game was to evoke a sense of oppressive doom and inevitable insanity or destruction at the hands of The Great Old Ones While evoking a mood relies greatly on the person running the game as well as the players I feel a system can add or detract greatly to this effort In this case it detracted The D20 system has in my opinion done little to actually enhance the story aspects of roleplaying instead distilling a game session down to nothing than a series of dice rolls and number crunching Very little emphasis is put towards developing a character or actually playing out the risks of madness and decline that a game as classic as Call of Cthulhu is meant to inspire Even the Sanity rolls an integral part of the original percentile based system have a kind of tacked on feel to themWhile the mileage may vary for others I have to say that I was disappointed greatly in this supplement

Call of Cthulhu D20 Roleplaying Game

Cthulhu Mythos The Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying Game contains everything needed to play or narrate a roleplaying campaign including all core game rules for the d20 game syste Any gaming systemplatform depends almost exclusively on the storyteller s ability to evoke the desired atmosphere during the session This particular module does a nice job of presenting a Cthulhu style sandbox in which to play I ve never had trouble using this module to create a fun memorable campaign which ends invariably with half the characters dead and the other half on a Haldol drip with a straitjacket securely fastened around their torsos But I will admit that this adaptation to the d20 system is definitely not all it can be The older system was less about rolling dice and about thinking together Unfortunately the vast majority of modern gamers want something which resembles WoW which really neuters a game like this one or to a lesser extent the World of Darkness stuff like Vampire The MasueradeStill in the hands of a good DM there is enough material here to spin a heckuva good yarn and have the players eating out of hisher hand all the way to The Great Old Ones buffet table

    The d20 version of the classic roleplaying game doesn't bring much new to the table if anything it takes away some Even though the d20 version feels lighter than the d% version of the game it can give new players a good starting point for the game I have played this as a GM with players previously inexperienced with role
