I’ve been eagerly following the progress of ELDRITCH TALES for a long time. I feel we need an RPG such as this for the Mythos market. Joe Salvador, IMHO, has hit that fabled Goldilocks spot OSR gamers live for. Just enough rules to provide guidance when needed yet not so many they entangle the GM or the players.
All in all, the Companion is an inspirational and massively useful reference source, not only for Masks of Nyarlathotep, but also for just about any other Call of Cthulhu campaign whatsoever.
That’s what I love about the Lovecraft mythos – a book, a painting, a sodding colour that can break you and I think the Yellow mythos really concentrates on that.

Steve Bean has created a game that does exactly as described on the tin. A perfect one shot game that plays in 3 to 5 hours, it hews true as an homage to the vision of Mac George’s Black Sun DeathCrawl while carving out its own unique territory and vision.

THE SINKING CITY is a game of investigation and mystery taking place in a fictional open world inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The player steps into the shoes of a 1920s private investigator who finds himself in the city of Oakmont Massachusetts, New England. A city suffering from unprecedented floods of clearly supernatural origins. A city trembling on the brink of madness…
Lovecraft told his tales with beings from space, the ocean and other weird environments, but cosmic horror doesn’t need tentacled horrors from beyond time – it resonates with us because we see it all around us every day.

This is what I would call a near perfect beer and pretzel game. There’s enough depth there to keep you on your toes and laughing the whole way to the abyss.
This adventure concerns the legend of a witch who lives deep within the forest, deep within every forest. Known as The Pale Lady or The Flower Mistress, there’s just one catch. She’s not a witch at all.
A host of historical characters face the mysteries of the Cthulhu Mythos, based on the popular “Herald: Lovecraft & Tesla” comics! Only 4 days left on this Kickstarter.
“Darkest Dungeon” is definitely a Lovecraftian game. The back story: your father unearthed portals to dark dimensions and released a number of horrific and evil creatures onto the world.
When I found out I’d be supporting a small, two person operation passionate about bring their love of M.R. James and gaming to the tabletop I tore off my pocket trying to get to my wallet.
