Call Of Cthulhu D20 Review

Post by ThePhantomGhoul » Mon Aug 06, 2012 8:03 pm

This was my first ever RPG video review. I made it back when I was calling my channel "Channel FUBAR".

Needless to say, the quality of my videos have not improved whatsoever.

Great video, Kyle. You are right, there were no stand-alone Cthulhu D20 supplements, BUT... several of the core sourcebooks have chapters on how to do D20 conversions within that book.

For example, the Arkham sourcebook, the Dunwich sourcebook, the Kingsport sourcebook, and the Miskatonic University sourcebooks all have D20 conversion information specific for the info in that book. Also, each book has an adventure or two, so with the use of the conversion info you have several D20 adventures at hand.

Yeah, I did not find out about those until after I made this video. But even with those it felt like it was abandoned before it got a chance.

Cool video. It'll be interesting to get your take on CoC's 7th Ed. when it comes out since you seem to be happy that most editions to this point have not been revamps. Fasten your seatbelt, Holmes.

I have faith in those involved. I doubt the "re-vamp" will be as bad as the "World Of Darkness" and D&D 4th edition re-vamps.
