Description

Pulp Cthulhu is a game of two-fisted adventure, weird science, dark deeds, and brave heroes. With this book, some roleplaying dice, and the Call of Cthulhu Rulebook, you have everything you need to adventure and explore games set in the pulp genre. Tired of your investigators dying in quick succession when jaunting around the world in a desperate bid to save humanity? Wishing that sometimes your investigator could make a stand instead of hiding and waiting for the eldritch horror to pass? Pulp Cthulhu ups the ante and provides you with tougher, more capable heroes ready to take on the villainous machinations of the Cthulhu Mythos!

Here you will find an adapted character generation system, rules for psychic powers, sanity, augmented skills, and weird science, as well as tips for Keepers on developing and running pulp-style games. Also, you will find information on the Pulps themselves and the 1930s era when America was in the grip of the Great Depression and on the road to World War II. A collection of pulp villains and monsters, and a range of pulp organizations provide the Keeper with a firm basis for running pulp style scenarios and campaigns. Four action-packed scenarios round out the book, getting your Pulp Cthulhu games started with a bang.

The guidance in this book means that you can apply the Pulp Cthulhu rules to any setting and time period, enabling Keepers to bring the flavor and action of pulp to the classic 1920s or modern-day eras, as well as anywhere else they see fit.

A Time For Heroes And A Time For Adventure!

Many Players really enjoy the original Call of Cthulhu, which is dark, scary and quite gritty. But others dont care for the fact that their carefully designed and beloved character (Investigator) is heading for..... certain doom.

So, Mike Mason and team came up with a slightly different CoC, one where the characters are Pulp Heroes- and in some cases verging on heroes from the Golden Age of Comics (no supers, but Wildcat is doable). Not quite up to Doc Savage or The Shadow, but you can play the likes of Flashgun Casey, Mr. Death , The Phantom, The Spirit, and so forth.

The first part of the book explains Pulp Heroes and the genre, then Character generation. "Pulp Talents" like "Tough Guy" or "Weird Science'' can keep your character alive longer and make him or her more unique. Also a important addition is "Investigator Luck" where you get and can spent luck points to ward off damage or even sanity loss- to a point. Not to be scorned is the fact that Hit Points are more or less twice what they were in standard CoC.

Mysticism, Weird Science, and Hypnosis are also some of the things Investigators can get into. Keepers (Game Masters) can adjust things by the "Pulp-o-Meter" with optional rules.

A nice section on the 1930s with plenty of background information is included. Good stuff for any game set in that period.

Rounding out this excellent book are no less than four interesting looking adventures, complete with floor plans (one of a Zeppelin!) and plenty of handouts.

Owning a copy of Call of Cthulhu will be handy, but not necessary.

I''ll put asside that it ruins the point of playing a Call of Cthulhu game and tell you,the simply truth: this book could have easily just been an alternate rules section in the players handbook or investigators guide. Most of the book is filled with 1930s lore and some beginning Adventures. Once you take that out, the aspects that are added to the characters themselves are pretty simple. Give them powers and give them more hit points. I would only recommend this book if you don''t like the original call of Cthulhu game but want to play in that universe.

A really good book for anyone who likes Cthulhu, pulp fiction, and/or role-playing games. Combines the horror rpg of Cthulhu with that of pulp fiction from the early part of the 20th Century. Whether it''s radio dramas, classic movies, pulp books and comics, or some combination of those, the book gives a good overview of mixing the two tropes together. Expanding upon the Call of Cthulhu RPG series, it allows people to apply pulp fiction worlds to that of Call of Cthulhu with some samples included in the book. Even people who don''t necessarily like one or more of the aforementioned things, it''s still a good book. Definitely recommend it to people who like rpgs, pulp fiction material, and/or the Cthulhu mythos

this is a complete tonal shift from the base Call of Cthulhu, where it''s horror and balancing sanity and death, it''s everyday people trying to survive the horrors of the Cthulhu mythos. Pulp Cthulhu is basically a tonal shift in which your Heroes are tough enough to take on the horrors, Luck is a major component of the game, and this game allows min-maxing to your benefit called Archetypes, so you can have adventures to the likes of Temple of Doom and 1990s The Mummy, with Cthulhu mythos creatures.

the complaint of this specific game of CoC is Luck is too much of a factor, that it just becomes too unnecessary, which in the book it does say luck is a factor more so than base CoC, because this is an over-the-top pulp adventure style game, so a lot of over the top thing can and will happen, so luck definitely affects your character''s actions.

overall, this is a great and fun game, and if you want to have adventures like Indiana Jones, you can''t go wrong with this sourcebook.

Take your Call of Cthulhu to the next level. Making adventurers more sturdy and heroic, like Indiana Jones, so they can investigate the perils of the world around them.
The book itself is well made, no issues to speak of. The pages are well laid out and well organized.

Nice Pulp adventures included. The attention to detail is impressive and wonderful illustrations. A must have for any RPG players collection. No. You need 7th edition call of Cthulhu too. I think this is excellent value for money and a really high quality product.

Having read through cannot wait to play through the scenarios in the book and the campaign also released for Pulp Cthulhu. Well laid out and clearly explains how to use larger than life characters in Call of Cthulhu. It make the investigators real heroes, instead of running away and avoiding creatures, you can take them on now. This does add another dimension and could provide lots of fun encounters.
