Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder

Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder

There are many sourcebooks mentioning the Lovecraft universe in the Pathfinder tabletop role-playing game, and thus the idea of seeing a book entitled Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder might seem as a repetition at first.

Once we get a closer look at the Kickstarter campaign initiated by Sandy Petersen we will realize that the task they want to accomplish is much more in-depth than anything previously written on the subject and the fact that the creator of the Call of Cthulhu RPG started this project should let you know that this will be the real deal.

Joining forces with Sandy Petersen are his son Arthur who worked as the Production Manager for Petersen Games and developed Cthulhu Wars as well as Ian Starcher who is in the gaming industry for over 30 years and is an expert in the Pathfinder system. The stellar team seems to give fans enough confidence in the project because the campaign was immediately funded and has reached all of its stretch goals so far.

There will be over 100 monsters and some of them never had Pathfinder rules before, while others received a complete makeover to fit with the rest of the horrors. Plot hooks will give you ways of bringing the player characters into a horror setting and there is also a guide on how to run a horror game in a heroic sword and sorcery setting.

This is just a part of the project because they also include information on artifacts and items of the Cthulhu Mythos, a review of the insanity rules that promises to be really good, lore about the Necronomicon and other texts of forbidden knowledge, new rituals and spells.

Something else they want to add to this amazing project is a very large selection of miniatures for you to use in your games and they will come assembled and unpainted, so you will have something to preoccupy yourself with between adventures.

The Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder is estimated to be completed on December 2016 and in the meantime you can check out the Kickstarter campaign here.
