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.
