Mythos Society Guide to New England

I love this book. The writing is good, the ideas are fun, but one of the coolest things about it is the depth of the research behind it. Real history provides so much weirdness and hints at both horror and adventure, and this book gathers that all up with glee. Of course, not everything you read in the book actually happened - it's a Lovecraftian game supplement, after all - but probably a lot more than you expect is true, if expanded on to suit the purpose of the book. If you like well-researched history retasked for horror gaming, you're gonna love this.

I have been a fan of Lovecraft for a long time and this book provides a wealth of well researched knowledge for both gamers and non-gamers alike. The ties to Lovecraft and the Mythos aside, this book stands on its own merit as a reference for the interesting interesting and atmospheric settings of New England. Mr. Staples attention to detail and feel for the genre are apparent even at first glance. Well written and engaging source material like this is hard to find and even harder yet for a genre like horror. A good investment at an extremely reasonable price. Highly recommended.

This is a massive 142 page tomb of knowledge & New England lore from essentially the heart of Lovecraft country. Writing and designing this sort of supplement is tricky business because Lovecraft wove both the imaginary & factual into his material. The Skirmisher crew did a great job with this one but for the Call of Cthulhu DM this book is really nicely done. The design and layout is easy on the eyes and the author knows his material very well. I really don't think that the Call of Cthulhu crowd has given these books or product line a second glance. That's too bad because their missing out on a very well done piece of Cthulhu rpg reference that includes not only the Mythos but a large chunk of New England lore as well. This book is a really bold stroke by Skirmisher and Mr. Staples does a great job capturing the flavor and feel of New England in these pages. Your going to want to pick this book up if your even remotely interested in the Cthulhu Mythos or New England lore. I enjoyed reading the PDF but I'd love a print copy even more.
