The first print-run of Trail of Cthulhu is just about sold out. That is pretty damn cool. This has quickly become one of my favorite RPGs. The Gumshoe System is easy to learn and fun to play. Check out Grim’s review of the first three Gumshoe books for a bit more detail on the system.
So, even if the first printing is gone you haven’t missed out. You can pre-order a copy of the upcoming second print over at Indie Press Revolution. The books will be shipping in the early part of July.
There are also some great deals on Trail of Cthulhu eBooks at the Flames Rising RPGNow Shop. Instant download, no waiting…
The Trail of Cthulhu core book is $20.95 and the Trail of Cthulhu Player’s Guide (all the player’s stuff from GUMSHOE Trail of Cthulhu, including the complete Trail GUMSHOE system, character creation, equipment lists, player tips and forms) is only $10.95.
Even better, get your group together and scoop up the Trail of Cthulhu Game Group Bundle for only $30.95!
The Bundle offers up the core book pdf and three Player’s Guides for your group. Kind of a cool way to go about it. Not only do you get a couple of extra eBooks, but it helps support the company while saving a few bucks.
Last week I did a mini-review of Trail of Cthulhu in the Flash Fire Mini-Reviews write-up. My last line of the topic was “Buy this game, you won’t regret it.” and I mean it. There are some very cool support products on the way (it looks like Stunning Eldritch Tales is already sold out at IPR as well) including more adventure guides and other cool stuff.
