Here’s a wickedly handy convergence of dark stars; Halloween is nigh, and Call of Cthulhu is celebrating its 40th birthday.
Inside the download, you’ll get a set of digital reference cards, PNGS suitable for virtual tabletops. The idea is you can use them as digital props, as visual assets to show your players.
Or, if you’re playing around a physical table, altar or ancient library desk, you can still load the transparencies onto your smartphone and show players as they also come in the GLB format.
That means you can use the 3D viewer app on Windows or third-party apps and use the Cthulhu props as part of an augmented reality experience.
Chaosium is on board with the generous promotion, helping to give it a nudge. Vice president Michael O’Brien took the chance to remind us that the props are for the Masks of the Nyarlathotep campaign;
Masks of Nyarlathotep is already long-considered the greatest RPG campaign of all-time, an experience gamers talk about for years afterwards. And now, with online TTRPG play surging, TYPE40’s digital props raise that quality bar of Masks even higher.”
Of course, these sorts of digital props could also find use in any Halloween or horror-themed adventure you care to run. Ideal if you want to hint at the cosmic threat your PCs might be scratching at.
