EN World Review – Age of Cthulhu (Vol. V) by Goodman Games

age of cthul v coverIt is Wednesday once again, dear Readers, and I hope this week is going well for you all!  I know I’ve been doing quite a bit of reviews lately from game systems and genres other than D&D 4E, but personally, I’ve been excited to see the interest in my reviews from other parts of our gaming community.

This week, I am reviewing one of my favorite genres of games on EN World, which will come as no surprise to Readers of previous blogs, who know that I am a huge fan of the Cthulhu Mythos and other outré horror!  Even my D&D groups can testify that I have a real penchant for introducing tentacled abominations and other horrors from the Far Realms into my campaigns, and enjoy adding horror to the sord and sorcery mix.

And I should probably mention here that my published D&D 4E adventure series Curse at the Old Inn and Bane of the Warlock, both based upon Lovecraftian themes, is about to be joined by a third horrific installment, Dreams of the Warlock!  But I digress…

Call of Cthulhu was the third game system I was introduced to after I was introduced to role-playing games by Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, and I am still a fan to this day.  Goodman Games recently sent me their most recent Call of Cthulhu adventure supplement, the fifth installment in their series, called Age of Cthulhu (Volume V): The long Reach of Evil, and its packed with three adventures set around the world in the 1920’s.

Review of Age of Cthulhu (Vol. V): The Long Reach of Evil by Goodman Games

I really enjoyed reviewing this work, and it definitely makes me want to haul out my box of Call of Cthulhu books and run a session or two as we head into the Halloween season.  CoC is one of those foundational role-playing game experiences that not only made me into the gamer I am today, but one of those game systems I always look back on fondly, and remember long-gone friends who shared many a night going slowly insane at my gaming table, facing horrors from beyond the stars!  (SAN LOSS!)

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
