CthulhuTech is a roleplaying game developed by WildFire LLC and published by Catalyst Game Labs (formerly published by Mongoose. Well folks, it’s been a long time coming. Welcome to the Cthulhutech review. For another exploration of the book and discussions of its quality. Enter a world rich and strange – even the cover art suggests this even before you read a word! But it’s stranger – and scarier – that you might.

In the end, the side with the most points from successful Investigations wins. Players take on the role of Investigators into the unknown, who have travelled up into the nearby mountains to a remote mansion said to hold a terrible secret.
Cthulhutech – Roleplaying in the Strange Aeon –
Play as a shapeshifting symbiotic Tager and fight as an outlaw hero, underneath the veneer of everyday society. All of the oceans and most of the coasts of the world are sparsely controlled by the Esoteric Order of Dagonwho use sea beasts, monstrous Deep Ones and Hybrid soldiers, brainwashed or conscripted humans, and their own brand of oceanic mecha in their search for R’lyehthe lost underwater city of Cthulhu.
Should a player gain enough insanity points, the character will suffer psychological trauma, including common mental illnesses such as schizophrenia.
Really neat ideas for the game world, but I’d have to play it way more to be able to critique the system. You know what your players are ok with and if you don’tthat’s not the game’s fault.
The Void is a hard sci-fi survival horror setting with Lovecraftian elements. It was a pretty swell time to be alive, as long as you didn’t live in the Middle East who had their economies go to shit because nobody bought oil anymore and resented the growing power of the UN, so they decided to side with China who had not joined the UN and its growing power and another Cold War started. If you’re going to run a game of FATAL ala bad movie night, you gotta use the character generator to make it easier because nobody needs to experience the mathematical nightmare of making a FATAL character more than once.
The Chrysalis Ctgulhutech, innocent at first, corrupted afterward by Nyarlahothep himself, worked to undermine the New Earth Government and other cults worked to corrupt humanity through vice. I’ve played in 2 campaigns from it and had a blast, but I wouldn’t call it an amazing system.
A second Migou hiveship was on its way, but Human-Nazzadi remnants of the colonies hiding in the Oort Cloud laid down the law on the Migou’s Pluto base, forcing the hive ship to return.
NEG players will fight the cults and the alien Mi-Go using mecha and military technology out in the battlefields or sorcery, wits, and investigative ability in the futuristic urban arcologies. I think it’s probably kind of an acquired taste though, because one of my friends played for 6 months before he figured out cghulhutech rolls.
What’s the general consensus on CthulhuTech? : rpg
Rules light, cinematic, fast play. It used all three in a linked series of adventures, leading to a mecha assault upon an abandoned oil rig in the North Sea. Tagers do lose some of their Orgone: The group will investigate clues in and around the mansion, hopefully uncovering enough information that they can stop the looming threat.
CthulhuTech has received varying degrees of acknowledgment. This Scarred Earth is an apocalyptic sci-fi game of action, horror, and kingdom building. Cthulhutech is one of my favourite RPGs. This seems to be a recurrent thing with anime games, which far as I can tell exist to covertly fulfil the wretched wank fantasies of nascent paedophiles.
Yeah, and old god ate it and we’re not going to expand on that at all.
Yup, everybody is an enemy. Fight tooth and nail on the front lines against the horrific beasts of the Rapine Storm. The setting for the void is more investigative, and essentially Call of Cthulhu in space, so there isnt any mechas there sadly. Straight as the author intended. Now with the cults becoming more and more blatant in their actions and the Migou becoming more aggressive in an effort to stop them, the New Earth Government has realized that the war was evolving into something rg and so declared the Arcanotech War to have ended and the Aeon War to have begun.
Despite this being a feature suited mostly to players, important Non-Player Characters also possess drama points to make them tougher or represent their importance. The magic is also interesting enough to allow for some funny jury-rigging mid fight. Eleven years after Teresa Ashcroft began ctyulhutech research, the first arcanotech-powered D-Engine went public.
Your task is to cooperatively improve your Enclave, push your personal agenda, and pilot your Mechs into battle against threats both human and otherwise. Do not submit video game rgp unless the game is based on a tabletop RPG property and is newsworthy. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.
