Petersen Games FREE Gift for the Holidays!

Ho Ho Ho!!!

As our thank you for being such great fans and supporters, we have wrapped a special gift for the Holidays: a FREE RPG adventure for Call of Cthulhu (7th edition).

As you know, Chaosium recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of Sandy creating the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and he thought you might enjoy this original adventure to celebrate the Holiday Season.

If you haven’t played Call of Cthulhu yet you really should check it out!
Or maybe you already know a Keeper (GM) you could “gift” this adventure to run it for you.

A Call of Cthulhu Scenario for 2-4 Investigators

By Mark Hart

The events in this scenario occur over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day any year during the 1920s, although the Keeper can set these events in other eras without much difficulty. 

An urgent telegram from an old ally sends the investigators to a midwestern town in search of a stolen Mythos tome, a volume of The Revelations of Gla’aki. Once the investigators arrive, they uncover evidence someone has used the book to unleash something dark, dangerous, and ravenous upon the community.

How many Zombies can you Recognize?

Calling all zombie lovers!!! You may not know that Sandy is a premier zombie movie aficionado! In his recent Sandy of Cthulhu video on YouTube, Sandy challenges you with a quiz testing your ability to recognize zombies and the movies they are featured in.

As usual, even if you don’t already know much, by the end of the video you’ll be an expert in several of the most famous (and Sandy’s favorite) zombie movies! You may also have a great list of binge-worthy movies for the holidays!

If you haven’t subscribed already, make sure to subscribe and get notified every week when Sandy posts his latest unique style of conversation: Horror Investigation, Gaming Practicum, Movie Madness, or Science Speculation.

I remember being six or seven years old and ‘The Seven Golden Vampires’ scared the crap out of me!!!! I have a bootleg saved on my hard drive … I watch it from time to time … Great video Mr. Petersen …

Meet the Monster: Nightgaunt

Meet the Monster: Nightgaunt

Dear Stout Investigators,

I have another Sneak Peak into Terror Paths, my upcoming cooperative Call of Cthulhu board game, for you here. I like you to have a look at the Nightgaunt!

We are now in the final stages of development and art for the game! In fact, yesterday I just ran a fabulous playtest and the feedback was excellent.


Meet the Monster: Nightgaunt

Nightgaunts have skin that is slick and rubbery-looking, rather like the skin of a whale. They do not have faces at all but instead bear blank, unsettling surfaces on the front of their heads. It is not known how they feed, but they are able to sense things around them with perfect clarity.

Nightgaunts often serve as guards, stationed to watch over areas by powerful beings such as Great Old Ones. They always attack in flocks, often large ones. They are sometimes termed “mindless,” but actually possess intelligence of a sort. While always perfectly silent, even while flying, they can understand speech.

New Monster from Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder 2nd Edition

Check out the Gug Brute from our new Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, which you can now purchase in PDF format.

Gugs are creatures so evil that even the Mythos gods once banned them from the surface world of the Dreamlands. Their legends remind them of the tasty nature of surface-dwellers, driving them to return, and they ever strive to circumvent the gods’ ban.

Since the ban does not apply to the waking world, they appear there in increasing numbers, but an attempt by the gugs to retake their ancient holdings would make for a devastating and far-reaching conflict.

What You See
This giant, black-furred humanoid’s forearms split into two hands per arm that end in vicious claws. Its face is split by a vertical slice of a mouth, filled with razor-sharp fangs made for rending flesh.

New Collector’s Illustrated Novella:The Call of Cthulhu

November 13th marks 40 years since Sandy developed and helped release the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

To celebrate this milestone, Petersen Games has released a special edition paperback of H.P. Lovecraft’s novella “The Call of Cthulhu,” the story that launched hundreds of works across multiple platforms including Roleplaying Games, Board Games, video Games, and horror fiction.

Sandy has filled this timeless story with the best art from his popular Sandy Petersen’s Cthulhu Mythos (for 5e and Pathfinder).

He has also included 5e statistics for two of the characters in the story, Old Castro and the Esquimaux Shaman.

This publication is only available on Amazon. During the month of October, we have priced it at 30% off the MSRP!
