Trail of Cthulhu Review

Matthew Pook has reviewed Trail of Cthulhu in Unspeakable Oath with very positive results. You can read the full review here.

If ever there was a game writer spawned to author a Lovecraftian RPG, it is surely Kenneth Hite. Trail of Cthulhu is a harsher, grainier approach to Lovecraftian investigative horror. Fully supported by elegant mechanics, it opens up a whole new decade and restores the unknown of Lovecraft’s Mythos.

Trail of Cthulhu Review

Here we have a very thorough and in-depth review of Trail of Cthulhu and the GUMSHOE system from Paco G Jaen of G*M*S Magazine. Jaen talks very positively of Trail and how it fits in with Lovecraftian themes, as well as how the GUMSHOE system deals with the investigative aspects of the Mythos.

“The Gumshoe system is pretty much perfect for a Lovecraftian setting”

“In short this game will offer years of perfect insanity fun. With enough for everyone and a system flexible to have from a purely investigative adventure to a action fuelled Indiana Jones style game, if you like Lovecraft, you simply can’t go wrong with it”

    As you may know, several ToC products just got very positive reviews in the latest issue of Fenix, the biggest gaming magazine in Sweden. It´s all in Swedish, but here is a link anyway: http://www.speltidningen.se
