I remain eternally perplexed by the unceasing popularity of the bizarre horror world conceived by H.P. Lovecraft. He was a terrible human being, but a genius writer and creator by the accounts of possibly millions of fans. His mythos of eldritch, mind-bending horror dominates the tabletop gaming world, and few grok it so well as Sandy Petersen, who worked with a team of experts to bring you the Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder. It’s all part of Pathways to Adventure Week, inspired by the huge sale going on at DriveThruRPG.
I don’t get it, but I know many of you do, so hold onto your sanity as you weave the Great Old Ones and their unyielding horror into your Pathfinder campaigns…
Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos is the most comprehensive guide to including Lovecraftian elements in your Pathfinder Roleplaying game, written by the author of the groundbreaking Call of Cthulhu RPG, and developed primarily by James Jacobs (creative director of Paizo) and David N. Ross.
This massive 512 page tome contains over 100 monster stat blocks, dozens of which are Cthulhu Mythos monsters that have never been described for Pathfinder – including new rules for interacting with 25 different Great Old Ones and Outer Gods (they are much more than a simple encounter!).
This tome is much more than a mere bestiary, however. Inside you will find new rules for Insanity and Dreams; 40 new spells and 30 Rituals – a new magic ruleset; dozens of mythos items and artifacts; dozens of Mythos cults detailed; and four new player races from Lovecraft’s universe – Dreamlands Cats, Mythos Ghouls, Gnorri, and Zoogs – as well as new character options, professions, feats, and race options for them.
If you like Cthulhu, Pathfinder, Monsters, and Madness, you need this book!
