Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying in the 23rd Century

It is the year 2271.

The future is a dark and dangerous place. Outer space is the new frontier - humanity exploits the galaxy for its own ends. It is more than a hundred and fifty years since the United Earth Federation began to colonise the solar system and beyond.

Millions of colonists — employees of either the Federation or one of the many megacorporations - live out their lives on worlds light years from Earth. Corporate-funded exploration craft push ever-deeper into space. It is only a matter of time before one of these craft stumbles upon some remote, alien edifice, a cosmic mausoleum of the Great Old Ones. But who is to say this has not already occurred?

Players take the roles of the investigators of the future. These enlightened and oft-unlucky individuals know something of the true nature of the universe. Be they fools or heroes, they take the fight against the Great Old Ones to the stars themselves.

This monograph is comprised of two parts:

Part one provides an overview of human society in the late 23rd Century, enabling Keepers to create a backdrop against which to set a campaign almost 300 years into our future. It is by no means exhaustive. Keepers can use it as a starting point for their own campaigns, or use the campaign scenarios available from the Cthulhu Rising website at www.cthulhurising.co.uk

Part two provides supplemental rules for generating 23rd Century Investigators, as well as information on the equipment and weapons that will aid them in combating dark cults.

* Timeline 2026 - 2271

MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY LIBRARY ASSOCIATION monographs are longer works by one or more authors on a subject of import to Call of Cthulhu roleplayers. On these products the author has also fulfilled the functions of editor and layout artist; we at Chaosium have done little in the way of editorial. We found these works compelling and thought that you would enjoy them. Monographs are digitally reproduced small run publications featuring durable laminated C1S covers and perfect bindings. We do provide a cover illustration. Through the publication of monographs we can offer our most loyal fans more information more easily, and evaluate the potential of these works for eventual release to the wholesale market.

Cthulhu Rising is the kind of sci-fi Call of Cthulhu setting that everyone's been waiting for. Unlike Cthulhutech, it doesn't have anime elements. Unlike End Time, it's not limited to Mars. Unlike Yellow Dawn, it's not a post-apocalyptic setting. Cthulhu [...]

A novel concept, this book takes the Cthulhu Mythos to 2271 and out into the final frontier. The entire book reads like an almanac/reference though, with timelines, overviews of the countries and corporations, additional equipment and psychic powers. [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
