S.Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors is beautiful and would make an amazing addition to your #callofcthulhu collection! #chaosium #rpg

Like a lot of folks my age, my introduction to the world of H.P. Lovecraft came through the mind-blowing Cthulhu mythos chapter of Deities and Demigods. This led me to purchase all of the Lovecraft novels I could find and in turn led me to the S. Petersen's Field Guide to Cthulhu Monsters. While not strictly a Call of Cthulhu supplement (there's no game stats here) it was obviously designed to go hand-in-hand with the RPG but also appeal to Lovecraft fans in general. Nothing could ever top Otus' illustrations from D&DG, but it was certainly nice to have some great full-page, color artwork of the various Cthulhu critters! From the handy identification flowchart up front (with such delightfully odd questions as, "Is its body composed of many separate spheroids?") to the relative size chart in the back, this book is a real treat for any Lovecraft fan. #dungeonsanddragons #advanceddungeonsanddragons #adnd #dnd #rpg #roleplayinggame #tabletoprpg #coc #callofcthulhu #chaosium #cthulhu #lovecraft #hplovecraft

Legacy of the Reanimator -
Chronicles of Dr Herbert West

Edited by Pete Rawlik and Brian M. Sammons

Great weird fiction collection all focusing on stories about HP Lovecraft's character Dr Herbert West. Published by Chaosium

I’m including Perilous Forest mainly for the cover, because the devil on horseback is always a good idea to include in your Instagram feed. ¶ As a book, kind of meh. It has the usual Chaosium eye for detail, giving lots of information on a number of locations around Cumbria and near Hadrian’s Wall. Several interesting short adventures that go to lengths to incorporate famous medieval legends, but they seem of dubious value. The best involves the Lambton Worm, but if you’re playing Pendragon, you probably know the story of the Lambton Worm, so the solution isn’t exactly a surprise. Still, it was an excuse to get a pretty great illustration of the famous worm and the armor that was its undoing (spiked armor will never not be cool). ¶ The biggest problem for Perilous Forest (and many other Pendragon supplements, and probably Chaosium’s bottom line) is that the campaign is rooted in southern England and Wales, which means the characters simply won’t have much time to explore the northern wilds. Worse, Chaosium bothered about putting this out and never actually finished the damn campaign! But I’m getting ahead of myself… ¶ #DnD #DungeonsAndDragons #ADnD #DandD #AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons #TSR #RPG #TabletopRPG #roleplayinggame #Chaosium #GregStafford #Pendragon #KingArthur #1992 #PerilousForest #LambtonWorm #Cumbria #HadriansWall

For all its delight as a system and a sandbox for players, Pendragon doesn’t have a ton of great adventures (that’s because there’s only really one campaign, but we’ll get to that on Friday). As a rule of thumb, every session of Pendragon is supposed to encompass an calendar year, with much of that dedicated to housekeeping and other responsibilities at court. Good knights simply don’t have time to quest more than once a year, so most adventures in Pendragon are bite-sized, with strong thematic connections to their place within the overarching campaign. ¶ That said, when you get a Pendragon adventure that is set in a single year but is obviously going to take more than one session, you’re almost always in for a treat. The Grey Knight is one such goodie. Perhaps, because it was written by Larry DiTillio, who also penned Masks of Nyarlathotep. ¶ I won’t go into too much detail, because I intend to run this for my group in the near future, but the quest involves a famous knight, Gawain, and gives players the chance to be instrumental in saving him from a terrible doom. Even better, it nicely foreshadows future events and has some super creepy art. Like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark level creepy. ¶ #DnD #DungeonsAndDragons #ADnD #DandD #AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons #TSR #RPG #TabletopRPG #roleplayinggame #Chaosium #GregStafford #LarryDiTillio #Pendragon #KingArthur #1986 #GreyKnight #Gawain #MasksofNyarlathotep #ScaryStoriestotellintheDark

Pendragon was meant to have a second edition featuring slightly revised rules, but it never came out. The Noble’s Book, did however – the lone entry on the Pendragon 2E shelf. ¶ It is a great book, putting Stafford’s love and depth of knowledge not just of Arthurian lore on display, but also the customs and culture of Medieval Europe. Here we find rules for, well, everything nobles might do, from running estates, to mustering for war, to participating in tournaments. There are great cutaway diagrams of castles and siege equipment. ¶ In short, this delivers on the promise of D&D’s strongholds – a set of clear and easy to digest rules for managing and defending land holdings. This might sound dry to you (if so, Pendragon is probably a game you should skip), but if the game is run properly, your land is your life, your family and your legacy. It is literally the center of your character’s in-game lives – tending to that instead of experience points is sure to make for a unique roleplaying experience. ¶ In some ways, Pendragon is a very Chaosium reaction to TSR’s Dragonlance, out around the same time. Both games were attempting to make tabletop gaming more literate, in completely different ways. Here, Pendragon is giving players the material to create their own stories within a greater one.¶ #DnD #DungeonsAndDragons #ADnD #DandD #AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons #TSR #RPG #TabletopRPG #roleplayinggame #Chaosium #GregStafford #Dragonlance #Pendragon #KingArthur #1986 #NoblesBook

This is the first edition Pendragon box set from 1985. Pendragon is an elegant, near perfect game for what it is: a recreation of the Arthurian romances in an interactive form, with a focus on simulating knighthood as it developed through Arthur’s fictional reign. I know of no other game that so precisely and effortlessly encapsulates its subject matter through mechanics and design. If you’ve ever wondered why there isn’t more King Arthur material in the RPG market, Pendragon is your answer: Greg Stafford’s game is definitive and no one has ever seriously tried to rival. ¶ That said, it certainly isn’t for everyone. If you’ve no interest in the legends of Arthur or the romance of knighthood, this game’ll probably bore you to tears. Much of it is caught up in politics, military campaigns and family affairs. The latter is perhaps the most interesting mechanic. Since you’re expected to play several generations of characters from the same family (something of particular interest to me as an expectant father), as much of your attention is spent on siring heirs and tending your estate as it is on questing and warfare. ¶ The campaign world is one of a magical golden age, with technological and philosophical advancement of the next several centuries happening rapidly within the confines of Britain over a handful of decades. This makes for stark differences between the generations of characters, as chivalry and civility take hold, dominate, then finally give way to decadence. A set of opposing character traits help track the virtues and flaws of character knights (modest vs proud, for example), allowing players to have some insight into how to push their characters toward the heroic glories and tragic ends they desire. ¶ Pendragon is another game like Call of Cthulhu that I played young and, therefore, played it like it was D&D. That is, entirely wrong. It is also the next game I intend to run once Masks of Nyarlathotep wraps up. I can’t wait. ¶ #DnD #DungeonsAndDragons #ADnD #DandD #AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons #TSR #RPG #TabletopRPG #roleplayinggame #Chaosium #GregStafford #CallofCthulhu #Pendragon #KingArthur #1985

Haven't seen this game for awhile!

By 1981, the RPG scene was in the midst of a boom. Lots of folks were making generic, D&D adjacent products to capitalize on the money players were spending. That means there are tons of weird and cool things from the period to find if you dig around. Fantasy Paths is one of them. ¶ This is a set of 28 modular tiles, printed front and back, depicting aerial views of 56 dungeon rooms. Along with those, there’re some tiles for adventurers and monsters (spot the jack-o’-bear and scorpion man from RuneQuest!), a sheet of dice replacement chits, a short adventure and an abridged version of Chaosium’s Basic Roleplaying to give you a system to fiddle with. ¶ They tiles are essentially more detailed, larger versions of TSR’s Dungeon Geomorphs, (I feel like there has to be a vintage TSR equivalent to Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeon Tiles, but if there is, I can neither think of it nor find it) allowing you to plot miniature friendly dungeons on the fly. ¶ Well, sort of miniature friendly. Because of the way the walls are drawn, they take up significant visual space. That makes them look cooler in my book, but probably makes the awkward to use in a game. ¶ I don’t really care. I love these things so much. There’s something a little bit mysterious about them. They’re mostly black and white, with blotches of out-of-register color ink. The cheap printing sort of remind me of the Rider-Waite tarot deck, which certainly contributes to the air of intrigue. However, these mostly remind me of other artistic depictions of spaces for explorations - Christopher Manson’s MAZE (a future entry, perhaps), certain Edward Gorey books, the initial areas of Zork. They seem a bit melancholy, certainly forgotten. They are empty rooms, filled with signs of life but nothing living. They’re an invitation, and maybe a warning. ¶ #DnD #DungeonsAndDragons #ADnD #AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons #DandD #TSR #RPG #TabletopRPG #FantasyPaths #BoardCraftSimulations #Chaosium #BasicRoleplaying #RuneQuest #DungeonTiles #DungeonGeomorphs #MAZE #ChristopherManson #Tarot #Zork #edwardgorey

Вот хочется сказать что-нибудь глубокомысленное, однако оно уже высказано пациентам. А спать хочется всё сильнее. Сейчас у меня даже более сонное лицо, чем на этих фото с прошлой недели. Хотя куда, казалось бы, ещё? Породам душу за суши, удобный диван, плед, мурлыкающую Умбру под боком, вагон книжек и ведро косметоса вместо ещё 4 часов приёма - прямо сейчас. XD И чтоб ни одного пациента в радиусе 10 километров. А вам чего хочется?

This is probably one of the coolest things I've gotten as a birthday gift. 😍
Jed ordered S. Petersen's field guide to Lovecraftian Horrors, full of Lovecraftian creatures from the mythos and the dreamlands.
Speaking of HP Lovecraft, I'm still searching for old paper back's of his books, not any of the new anthologies or definitive edition prints. If you come across any on your travels or any used book stores in #yeg, let me know, I would definitely appreciate it. 😊
