Age of Cthulhu: Death in Luxor
GOODMAN GAMES TO PUBLISH OFFICIALLY LICENSED CALL OF CTHULHU ADVENTURES
USING BASIC ROLE PLAYING SYSTEM
Goodman Games is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement
with Chaosium to publish all-new adventure modules for the legendary role
playing game Call of Cthulhu. These adventure modules will be published
under the line Age of Cthulhu, which takes Cthulhu investigation beyond
the familiar places of the 1920s New England seaboard. The first Age of
Cthulhu adventure module, titled Death in Luxor, is slated for December
2008. All Age of Cthulhu adventures will utilize the Basic Roleplaying
mechanics as published by Chaosium.
“Call of Cthulhu is an industry icon,” said Joseph Goodman, President
of Goodman Games. “Every gamer has played it, every fan knows it, and every
creator loves it. Age of Cthulhu takes this familiarity and turns it on
its head. I think Cthulhu fans everywhere will appreciate the chance to
play in a Cthulhu sandbox that’s both familiar and foreign.”
“We here at Chaosium are very excited to be working with Goodman Games
to bring new Call of Cthulhu supplements to our community. Their high quality
books are sure to be a hit,” said Dustin Wright of Chaosium.
“It is an enormous privilege to contribute to the Cthulhu mythos,”
said Harley Stroh, staff writer for Goodman Games and author of Death in
Luxor. “We all grew up reading Lovecraft and playing in the classic Cthulhu
adventures, and there was always the shared assumption that terrible, inexplicable
events were taking place across the globe. The Age of the Cthulhu adventures
are an opportunity for investigators to probe some of those mysteries –
even if they all go mad or die in the end.”
Scheduled for release in December 2008, Age of Cthulhu: Death in Luxor
is the first in a series of new adventure modules. This new adventure takes
the investigators to Egypt, where madness has gripped the archeologists
of Chicago House. Encountering corrupt police, a beautiful Theosophist,
and cultists bent on awakening a horror from another age, the investigators
must solve the mysterious deaths of Professor Bollacher and his team before
ancient rites come to their terrible conclusion.
Following quarterly in 2009 will be additional Age of Cthulhu adventures.
While Death in Luxor sends the investigators in search of the mysteries
of Egypt, subsequent adventures will expose them to the terrors of Asia,
South America, and Africa.
Retailers will be able to order Age of Cthulhu: Death in Luxor in December
under the Goodman Games listing as SKU code GMG7001.
