We are raising a print budget for our collection of scenarios for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 17, 2012.
About this project
Pagan Publishing is a small but award-winning publisher of role-playing games, specializing in books and supplements for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game.
We have completed work on a new collection of five game scenarios entitled "Bumps in the Night." This collection was written by John H. Crowe III and is set in the classic Call of Cthulhu era in the early part of the 20th Century. All five scenarios use the Call of Cthulhu Basic Role Playing mechanics, but none of them are based on the Cthulhu Mythos. Instead the players will have to face obscure horrors from the world of myth and folklore. At 120 pages, "Bumps in the Night" is beautifully illustrated by Rick Sardinha, Heather Hudson, Samuel Araya and Rhonda Libby. It will be produced as a 8.5" x 11" softcover, with glossy color exteriors and grisly grayscale interior artwork.
All writing, editing, proof-reading, illustration and layout are complete. All we need now is our print budget. We've raised some money through customer pre-sales but still need to raise another $2,500 dollars to cover the rest of the printing and shipping to our warehouse. If we meet our pledge goal, we can have a full print run ready to ship to customers in nine weeks (which includes the time we have to wait for Amazon Payments to release the pledged funds).
For those folks who pre-ordered "Bumps in the Night" at GenCon or from Arkham Bazaar, if you also want to contribute to the Kickstarter fundraiser, we'll add the money you've already spent to your new pledge for purposes of calculating rewards. There's no reason you should get less just because you supported this project earlier than anyone else.
As mentioned in our project video, you can check out recorded Call of Cthulhu games at the following URLs to see if you'd like to pledge $300 and get 12 hours of Call of Cthulhu gaming hosted by me, Adam Scott Glancy. Click here for "Dig to Victory." Click here for "Uboote Heraus." And here for "The Night Mission."
I pledged and claimed my rewards before you added that thing about the two pdfs. Am I still eligible for them?
Yes. This is my first Kickstarter so I'm still learning the ropes, but if you can't go back and claim the reward yourself it won't matter because I'll be sending out Backer surveys to everyone at the end of the fundraiser. I'll get your email addresses and you'll get your pdfs.
Pledge $1 or more
Everyone who has pledged to this project will now receive two pdfs. The first pdf will be a collection of all the player handouts, floor-plans and maps for the scenarios in Bumps in the Night.
The second pdf will be a set of pre-generated characters that I created for running the scenario "The Vengeful Dead" at game conventions. Your players may enjoy using them or maybe you can use them to fill out the guests at the resort if your players prefer to roll up their own characters.Estimated delivery:
