In January 2020 we presented the Stygian Fox Cthulhu Bundle featuring recent Call of Cthulhu sourcebooks, investigations, and play aids from Stygian Fox Publishing. These fiercely imaginative (and uncomfortable) scenarios of realistic horror range beyond the Cthulhu Mythos and across many times and locales.
We presented several Stygian Fox titles in the October 2018 Bundle of Tentacles 5, including the unsettling scenario collections The Things We Leave Behind and Fear’s Sharp Little Needles, along with the Victorian-era agency sourcebook for Cthulhu by Gaslight, Hudson & Brand, Inquiry Agents of the Obscure. This all-new collection took Investigators from spirit-stalked 1990s Japan to haunted Victorian seasides, from an infected ocean liner in New York harbor to London’s Necropolis Express.
There were four titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $42) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including The Book of Contemporary Magical Places, the modern-day CoC scenario I Want to Play, the beautiful Cartomancy 23: Lovecraft Country Map Pack collection, and an unusual play aid: Afterlives, a deck of print-and-cut cards that describe your Investigator’s ultimate post-scenario fate.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with five more scenarios and sourcebooks worth an additional $60, including Nakuko (set in 1990s Japan), The Dark Forest (modern-day Michigan), Thorston, the Shunned Town on the Dee and Nightmare on the Necropolis Express (both Cthulhu by Gaslight Victorian-era), and Autophagia (1920s).
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
