Cubicle 7 are, as suspected, going to take to Kickstarter for Cthulhu Britannica: London. We’ve got more of the details now – this will be one of the boxed sets that C7 are known for.
The Cthulhu Britannica: London deluxe boxed set for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game has a number of game designers lined up and involved. The first stretch goal is a postcard from Sandy Petersen. As far as we currently know the postcard is the limit of Petersen’s involvement. This is an important nod that Call of Cthulhu’s creator is fully behind this campaign and involved. In the highly competitive Kickstarter RPG landscape this sort of involvement is critical.
Petersen’s postcard contains the start of an investigation. It’s an in-game handout that can be supplied to investigators. The target and stretch goals amounts aren’t yet known.
It’s expected the Cubicle 7 will announce other writers as the campaign progresses and other stretch goals will include a campaign book and a set of cards.
Cubicle 7 will be running a free-to-play game while the Kickstarter is live. It’ll follow investigator Neve Selcibuc, as she gets caught up in drama in London while recovering from an ordeal in Scotland. An overlap with Shadows Over Scotland is likely.
Neve’s adventure will be played out via postcards and players can pick one of three options for what the inspector does next. Gamers email [email protected] and the most popular option decide her fate. Cthulhu by crowd wisdom. Is that a clever or horrible idea?
