Salve, investigator! In August 2020 we presented the Cthulhu Invictus Bundle, featuring the Golden Goblin Press setting of Cthulhu Mythos menace in ancient Rome, Cthulhu Invictus for Call of Cthulhu Seventh Edition. Long before ivy grew on the walls of Miskatonic University or the Deep Ones first came to Innsmouth, the inhuman powers of the Cthulhu Mythos plagued mankind. During the late Age of the Antonines (AD 145), as the Roman Empire reached its peak, dark forces were at work. Ancient wizards sought ways to cheat death, explorers stumbled on the remnants of alien civilizations, and foul cults practiced unholy rites. But there was hope. From the benches of the Senate to the arches of the Colosseum, from Rome’s steamy bathhouses to legionary camps in border provinces, some heroes and heroines were willing to risk their lives to protect humanity. With torch, sword, and mystic arts they battled to preserve the Empire for one more day.
Cthulhu Invictus started as a humble Chaosium monograph (2004), then grew to an official CoC setting (2009). In September 2014 designer Oscar Rios Kickstarted a licensed Invictus scenario collection, De Horrore Cosmico, published by his own company, Golden Goblin Press. The campaign’s success spawned a February 2017 follow-up Kickstarter to update Cthulhu Invictus for the CoC Seventh Edition rules. The greatly expanded Invictus 7E sourcebook won the 2019 Silver ENnie for Best Supplement. Since then Golden Goblin has run several more Kickstarters, such as the March 2020 campaign for the first Invictus setting book, Britannia and Beyond.
This all-new offer presented most of Golden Goblin’s Cthulhu Invictus line, including the current setting guide for CoC Seventh Edition along with scenarios, pregenerated investigators and patrons, and fiction. Pay just US$7.95 to get all three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $41) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete 197-page Cthulhu Invictus setting guide for CoC 7E; the fiction anthologies Tales of Cthulhu Invictus and Further Tales; and a selection of free bonus treatises, some previously available only to Kickstarter backers.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with three more titles worth an additional $45, including the scenario collections De Horrore Cosmico and Fronti Nulla Fides (“no faith in appearances”), along with a collection of 21 pregenerated investigator characters, Heroes and Heroines of the Shadow War.
Note: You’ll need the free Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Quick-Start Rules or the CoC 7E Keeper’s Rulebook from Chaosium, Inc. to use this Cthulhu Invictus material.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this Cthulhu Invictus offer’s pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief gets protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
