How to Run CoC in 2021

 (taken from an exchange on the I'm Begging You To Play Another RPG Facebook page)

Question: "If there’s one thing I’ve learned from D&D, it’s that all RPGs have three core books. What are the core books for your game?"








Tedankhamen: CoC rulebook, Dreamlands of Unknown Kadath, my fevered brain

      Yeah, it is why this game has gone 10 sessions with no signs of stopping, we've left Earth for the Dreamlands, and PCs are picking up skills like The Cat Dance and spells like Summon Cats. Epic, off the rails.

    • Mr X summoning cats is definitely the most important spell

    • Tedankhamen I'm also realizing that CoC is dated and clunky, but also great fun when hacked this way.

    • Tedankhamen It will probably save their lives and end the campaign...

    • Tedankhamen Oh definitely! The rules themselves give an old school, clunky 'this is mundane reality' vibe, THEN you throw Dreamlands or non=Euclidean physics at them. It is the upending of the sane mesh of rules from whence the cosmic horror emanates bwahahahahaha

    • Mr X I love that! I like challenging my players assumptions about how the world works (within reason) to keep them on their toes, or in this case, reinforce the themes of the game

    • Tedankhamen  It is unintended consequence of outdated game design and Beggar psychology / gaming methodology
