Looking to Play some Call of Cthulhu...
I'm itching to play some CoC. I'm pretty experienced in 7E though I'm willing to play any edition because they are all pretty similar. That stated, I have no idea what the rules are in D20 CoC.

I've only ever been Keeper before, so I'd like to actually play a game as an investigator for once.

I was thinking of playing a failed physicist or scientist, who had some experiments and/or theories rejected and its kind seen as a loser among the scientific community. he is eager to make a name for himself.

EDIT: San Francisco is a great setting. I love it.

I was thinking something along the lines of a crippled Great War Veteran turned hard boiled, cynical P.I.

Let me think about this. I'm new to this board but not to a play by post format. I need to figure out how to start a game, etc. here @ RPOL. I will probably use a CoC 6th ed rules as 7th ed are too crunchy for my tastes. Stay tuned.

I can get ahold of the 6E Rulebook pretty easily as well, I think.

I never got into 7th Edition. the fact that I need to buy two rulebooks to get the complete game kinda turns me down :P

What do you mean? All you need is the CoC Keeper Rulebook and you're good to go. The investigator guide is by no means necessary, as it really only repeats info in the Keeper rulebook, but with all of the "sensitive" information cut out.

Hey y'all...please don't go and buy anything unless you just want to spend the money. I haven't really decided on actually running a game yet.

Also, I'm not into "crunch" from rules. I'm more about the story and only utilize rules as a baseline for character actions or to add a little randomness to events. As to characters I will provide attribute scores that you will be able to assign as you want based on the type of character you want to create.

Hmm interesting, I thought both books were necessary.

The Keeper Rulebook contains all the monsters too?

Yeah, the Keeper Rulebook contains the creatures and their stats, while the investigator handbook does not. Wouldn't want the PCs to learn all the stats and tricks of your baddies, now would you?

Re: Looking to Play some Call of Cthulhu...
Possibly late in the game here but I have just set up a Call of Cthulhu game myself and am accepting character submissions. Some things to note.

1. It is adult and will contain adult content.

2. It uses those 'crunchy' 7e rules you've all been talking about.

3. It uses a heavily modified published scenario and sourcebook.

4. Its set in modern day  Japan (but most investigators will be British).

Here's the link:- link to another game

I'm afraid I'll pass as well. Though I appreciate the offer, I'm only interested in Classic Era CoC at the moment.

I've started a Call of Cthulhu game set in 1930's Hollywood. Would you consider joining as a investigator?
