About

 A Time for Sacrifice is a Call of Cthulhu 7th edition adventure book set in the classic 1920's era, licensed by Chaosium.  The book contains a series of three adventures set in the Mesoamerican setting, including the Mayan society. The book will feature the beautiful art work of  Edoardo Campagnolo, brought to you by New Comet Games, the same people who brought you the award-winning Call of Cthulhu book Devil's Swamp. 

We are planning for each of the 3 adventure's to be approximately 50% longer than standard Call of Cthulhu scenarios. Additional scenarios will be added when we reach certain stretch goals. 

The first 3 adventures are already well into production and being playtested. The artwork is underway and the remainder of our staff is ready to get to work on this book as soon as the campaign is funded.  The book will be published in Softcover, but if we reach the specific  stretch goal, we'll upgrade the books to Hardcover. (see stretch goal section). 

The five adventures to be included will be:

  •  An Egg Out of Time - by Ben Burns
  •  Pyramid Scheme - by Brian Courtmanche
  •  Doorway to the Gods - by Ben Burns
  •  Space Between Time (working title) - by Ben Burns
  • ???  - 5th Adventure

  Each of the included missions are stand-alone. However, a creative Keeper could easily stitch them together into a campaign. 

Stretch Goals

  •  $2,000: We successfully funded!!(UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  $5,000: Upgrade map making to a professional Cartography (UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  200 Backers at $36 or higher: Books become Hardcover (UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  $10,000:  Add in a 4th Adventure (UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  $15,000: Upgrade Player Handouts to be Photo-Realistic (UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  $20,000: Add in a 5th Adventure (UNLOCKED!!) 
  •  $25,000: Upgrade to the book pages from 60# to 70# glossy (Locked) 
  •  $30,000: Sketches of all major NPC's in the book (Locked)
  • $35,000: Upgrade book to include end sheets (Locked)

With your Kickstarter support, we can get this book to the finish line and share it with the world!

Shipping

We will be using Backerkit to collect shipping costs. This does two things for us. First we can be much more accurate on individual shipping costs so we do not overcharge you. Second, we can focus solely on funding the book and reaching our stretch goals without worrying about shipping expenses during the campaign.

We are EU friendly, however with the exception of the UK, we expect the shipping to be about the same, you just won't have to pay VAT taxes as long as the laws don't change between now and when we deliver.

Risks and challenges

There is almost no risk to this project. The only real chance for any significant delays would be real-life tragedy.

The art is on its way to being finished. The first 3 adventures are almost complete, and everything else has started.

We have published several books before this one, so we are very familiar with the process, and do not expect any surprises. We have run many successful Kickstarters before. All have either delivered on time or have delivered early.

We look forward to completing this project with the same efficiency and quality that our customers have come to expect from New Comet Games.
