We’ve talked about it, teased it, and even shown a bit of it off. Now we’re going to the next level.
The Cthulhu Alphabet Kickstarter is now live! Delving deep into the unseen, we’ve called forth the ancient powers and found ourselves wanting—wanting you to check out this new campaign, that is.
Based upon the seminal works of H.P. Lovecraft, this book takes the unknowable and puts it into a logical order. A is for Angles, B is for Books, C is for Cults, N is for Nyarlathotep…okay, we might have rearranged the alphabet a little there. But this is Lovecraft! You have to expect a little bit of strange.
The Cthulhu Alphabet is a collection of random tables to inspire your role playing game, structured around an abecedarian theme. If you are a player navigating an uncaring universe, a haunted setting, or horror-filled dungeon, you will find new ideas for your character and adventures. And if you are a game master creating scenarios set in the Cthulhu Mythos – or in any fantastic world – you will find every page bursting with ideas. Your brain will spark on every page, whether you roll randomly for inspiration or read the tables in order
The third book in the Alphabet series from Goodman Games, The Cthulhu Alphabet joins The Monster Alphabet and The Dungeon Alphabet as system-neutral guides that are meant to enhance any campaign with their easy-to-use charts.
The Cthulhu Alphabet is a book years in the making, and the contributors are all touched by just the right amount of madness to pull this off. With an introduction by Sandy Petersen, cover art by Erol Otus, and foreword by Brad McDevitt, The Cthulhu Alphabet starts out with a bang.
The core content is written by Michael Curtis, Jon Hook, Rick Maffei, and Brad McDevitt, with additional support by Brian Courtemanche, Mike Ferguson, and Brendan LaSalle. Their writing sets a perfect tone for the macabre art inside the book. The artists who lost their mind producing this enigmatic tome includes Brad McDevitt, Stefan Poag, Peter Mullen, Doug Kovacs, Russ Nicholson, William McAusland, Jesse Mohn, Cliff Kurowski, Tom Galambos, Chris Arneson, and others.
And to top things off—figuratively and literally—we’ve got multiple cover options that are available to order! You can choose from four different covers: the cover by Erol Otus, the foil cover by Brad McDevitt, the foil cover by Stefan Poag, or the leatherbound cover by Peter Mullen. Any way you go, you’re getting a spectacular piece of art!
