NEW STRETCH GIFT: UNLOCKED!
LITTLE KITTIES FOR BIG CATS!
DONATIONS TO NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ARE A GO! BACKER'S CAT PIX TO BE POSTED ON THE OFFICIAL LITTLE KITTIES FOR BIG CATS SITE!
Yep, we made the $35,000 Stretch Goal! More than 50 pictures of your cats will be posted by National Geographic, each representing a donation by Catthulhu.com on your behalf!
For every additional $1,000 we reach in the next -- gulp -- 38 hours, we'll add another tier of backers to the donation program. In theory we could end up posting over 500 photos and making a huge donation!
PLUS DOG LOVE TOO!
This goal also means that Boxed Set recipients will get bonus Dog Figures along with the Cat Figures! Woof!

NEW DICE PIX
EXCLUSIVE TO WORLDS OF CATTHULHU PRINT EDITION
Palace intrigue. Dark magic. Blood sacrifice. Fang and claw. With these weapons the Animal Gods contend for control of the Courts of Faerie. Whose side are you on?
That's what we call these final-week Stretch Goals, because they don't cost you any extra pledging! We just create them and add them to the goodness if the total funding hits our goals.
$32,500: THIRD FULL-LENGTH ADVENTURE penned by the talented Tracy Barnett of Sand & Steam Productions. CRAMMED RIGHT INTO THE CATTHULHU DELUXE RULEBOOK! Planning already underway for this fun yet creepy romp.
$35,000: DOG FIGURES! At this level, in addition to the cats, each Boxed Set will contain four different dog figures! They might be deployed as foes, or uncertain allies. Or use The Book of the Dog and play them as PCs! After all, those canine rules are included in the Catthulhu Deluxe rulebook and PDF. All this at no extra charge, because we love you!
This is it. Our final chance to show Great Catthulhu that we are worthy to carry his word to the ignorant two-foots of this world. Our supporters have lifted the Deluxe Edition far beyond what our cabal dared to dream of back in the early hermetic rituals. Now it can be revealed: The final vision, apocalyptic in its power...

SCARVES PLUS HOLIDAY SHIPPING!!
The eerie yet cozy Catthulhu scarves sold out fast! Through unseemly influence, we have persuaded expert craftsperson Roseleendhu to make six more of these beauties. Out of the 18 to be made, we're also offering six for delivery by the holidays!! It's crazy.
Our comments section is very lively and responsive. Treat it like a forum! Frequent contributions by Mr. Joel and crew.
I'm Joel Sparks, author of the game and a long time writer and game designer. It's been a privilege to encounter such a swell of support for what started out as a funny little idea. There's so much more to tell in the Catthulhu story, and so much fun to be had! Together with my team of artists and editors, we want to take Catthulhu to the next level for all the hungry fans. But we can't do it alone.
This Kickstarter project will let us complete and produce the all-new, greatly expanded and improved game with the working title CALL OF CATTHULHU DELUXE. We aim to keep the mechanics simple, the cost low, and the appeal universal. To do all this in a high-quality project, we need your help.
Check out the rewards on offer, read a little more about what we're working on, and then pick your pledge. Join us, and save human civilization! Do it for the cats.
PRIOR STRETCH GOALS WHAT ARE ALREADY STRETCHED
Woo-hoo! Sixteen hours into funding and we've unlocked our first Stretch Goal. Call of Catthulhu Deluxe will now include a second full-length, detailed adventure, ready for the Cat Herder to put the players through their paces!
Amazing! Less than 24 hours and we've unlocked two Stretch Goals. Thanks to your incredible support, we will be able to pay terrific artists like Caroline Jamhour to fill the pages of the Deluxe book with creepy, colorful pictures!
You guys blew right past this one before I could even announce it! Creepadorbs crafter Rosaleendhu has signed on to create an exclusive edition of Catthulhu Scarves! These long, high-quality neck-wraps feature a cute, betentacled kitty head with little paws at each end. No such scarf yet exists and this Kickstarter is the only way to get them!
Add a scarf to any pledge for $50. Shipping to Europe is an extra $10, or $15 for further parts of the world.
Not everyone understands the inherent superiority of catkind! In fact, some of the wisest Tiger Dreamers consider our canine companions to be strong potential allies, if a bit undignified and confused. Compared to the horrors than lurk outside the curtain of the world, a slobbery puppy is downright pleasant. Included in the Catthulhu Deluxe rulebook, The Book of Dogs allows players to take on the roles of dogs! You'll get more about the cult of Mutt'thra, the relationship between domestic dogs and wild canines, Dog Roles and how they differ from Cat Roles, and a lot more.
Now a human follower of Mutt-Thra has agreed to put his uniquely doggy insights and visions into print for the edification of felines everywhere. JOHN KENNEDY of THIRD EYE GAMES is author of a whole raft of RPG works, including the Terrifying Tomb of Ankhatton adventure for the DAWG roleplaying game (Knights of the Dinner Table). Woof!
Pledge total needed for this Stretch Goal cut from $10,000 to $8,500! That means we're already past it, so the German language Deluxe rules translation will happen. Excited around here!
When we hit $10000 pledge, we decided to add a new color of Cat Dice for people to choose from -- and another one every $2500. Now we have four colors!
NOW JUST $4 EACH INCLUDING SHIPPING!
A book about to catkind's devoted servants, the humans. Did you know that children between roughly 3 months and 18 months old can talk to cats? Obvii! Newborns are Beacons, visible in the Dream World and protecting nearby cats from Chaotic influence. Some humans grow up to be Cat Ladies, mother figures to countless kits and heroes, while others become Kickers or worse: cat-haters who can potentially turn violent. Find Twofootologist and Tiger Dreamer wisdom on how to deal with all these types of human, and a lot more, in the complete Book of the Two-Foots!
The Book of Dogs and the Book of the Two-Foots will now be in the printed Catthulhu Deluxe book! Tell your friends!
Risks and challenges
We want to do this right! The original CALL OF CATTHULHU is already a fun game. It's also very small and leaves a lot of detail up to the game master, or Cat Herder as we like to say. Once you get the basic idea -- players are heroic cats opposing the Lovecraftian chaos cults of other animals -- the room for expansion is vast!
But it takes time and money. Your generous pledges let us get to work right away, and we'll supply you with great rewards in the meantime, plus a super-fun game at the end!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
