I know, I know you are probably tired of people pimping out various things on the interwebs, however I would like to bring attention to a Kickstarter for a Roleplaying Game I am heavily involved in.
Have you ever wondered about the origins of my character Minerva Amantine? Probably not, as god knows there are too many OCs out there. However, a game of Cthulhu Pulp is where she originated from. This system is a percent-based system and is really quite a blast. The rules are decently simple, you have lots of customization, and there are plenty of scenarios availbile, especially since the conversions from Call of Cthulhu to Pulp are very easy. I can say that I have played a few Roleplaying Games in my time, of which I will list the ones played:
-D&D 2nd Edition
-a few others I can't remember the name of
Throughout all of these I would say Cthulhu Pulp is my favorite, followed by Pathfinder, and then pure Pulp Adventure.
How would I describe the feeling of Pulp Cthulhu? Tough, but not the hopeless case that standard Cthulhu is. Pulp Cthulhu is where you can combat some of the more minor mythos baddies. An investigator can stop the summoning of big gods, destroy the depths of Y-hanth'lei, and send Ry'leh back to the sea. I would compare it in feel to the characters in the newer Mummy series (not inlcuding that misbegotten 3rd film)
How would I describe pure Pulp? Think of Darkman, the Shadow, Doc Savage, or Big Trouble in Little China! Ever wanted to be Jack Burton? Go ahead and play him! (If you ask really nice the creator would probably even make a Burton-esque character!)
I promise you guys this is an amazing game system as can anyone who has played in one of Jeff Hatch's game at any Northern California con.
So please take a look at the Kickstarter. I own all the books already, but pledged for the Hardcover book pack myself and the project is already at full funding, so it is already for certain. If anyone does pledge on this Kickstarter please let me know!
