    What does this offer?

    I watched a hour long demo of this on twitch, really enjoyed it...... https://www.twitch.tv/videos/292596384
  3. http://bloody-disgusting.com/video-games/3509028/lovecraftian-rpg-cthulhu-chronicles-ios-today/ We’re still waiting on games like The Sinking City and Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game, but out today is MetaArcade’s Cthulhu Chronicles, which should satisfy those looking to scratch that Lovecraft itch. Plus, seeing as it’s out on iOS (with other platforms in development), you can take it on the go! ADVERTISING inRead invented by Teads Created in partnership with Chaosium, creator of the popular tabletop RPG game, Call of Cthulhu, the video game “distills the essence of the award-winning roleplaying system into a story-driven, intuitive experience designed for mobile gamers”. To celebrate the launch of the game today, there’s a special 10% discount on all scenarios during the launch week. In Cthulhu Chronicles, players can assume the role of various archetypal investigator characters, such as a policewoman or private detective, to pursue missions involving crazy cults, sinister creatures, and horrors from beyond space. The immersive narrative is accompanied by rich images and evocative ambient soundtrack by Cthulhu contributors Chad Fifer, Cryo Chamber, Graham Plowman, and others. Unlike many RPGs, the focus in Cthulhu Chronicles isn’t on building up a character through combat. Instead, players choose an appropriate investigator for the mission at hand, with each investigator having their own strengths and weaknesses, as well as individual storylines. At key decision points, players will make choices that matter, as each story has multiple endings and numerous clues to uncover—which in turn unlock new storylines and outcomes as the campaign unfolds. At launch, the game includes five unique scenarios created with MetaArcade’s proprietary Adventure Creator tool, with four more coming soon. Together, these scenarios comprise the first Cthulhu Chronicles campaign, “Investigations in Lovecraft Country”. Additional campaigns are planned after launch; there will also be an opportunity for the community to create their own Cthulhu Chronicles stories in the future. Players get five ‘trials’ each day to play any story for free, and can buy stories via in-app purchase to unlock them permanently for unlimited plays.

    Horrific Journeys

    Wow what lovely news to hear about this, right out of the blue. Maybe the next options will be small towns and county side locations and other that maybe one set in Africa or another exotica location ?
  5. http://www.beastsofwar.com/liveblogentry/the-big-reveal-is-death-may-die/ Looks like they are going all Hp Lovecraft soon...... Nice to have more figures to use...
  6. http://bloody-disgusting.com/news/3484580/existential-dread-summoned-latest-update-video-sinking-city/ Just wanted to drop this off today, some nice art to get you into the mood.. It could be a interesting expansion if FF wanted too, like Innsmouth, but flooded. Looking forward to playing this on my console. for skill checks its a 1-100% system looking for clues etc

    Dog fights and ground support

    A few new types of cards to show off board support is a must for the complete battle.... just the odd attack here, or a explosion going wide there.... for most battles the sky would be buzzing with craft......
  8. I was thinking more of would the nazis be trying to control the creatures and use the dark powers to win the war by any means, so replacing cultists with soldiers etc... , so heroes rushing to find and remove objects before they dig them up .
  9. they are getting a turn based pc game sometime this year. some rural usa would be nice, a little drive into the county side.....
  10. Mid 1930`` s settings of nazi strongholds,digs sites and other locations. stopping the Germans getting they hands on dark items ? But i would like to see more locations for MOM like farm houses, hospitals etc..... but everybody like a evil nazi !!
  11. i now sorted all the bits out,i gone from 8 investigators to 30...!!!
  12. Hi all I have the base game, and now at the weekend i got my copy of streets of Arkham. So now i have all the expansions, allowing me to add new items to the game itself. I have only played the first 2 missions of the basegame. The second mission in the alleys of innsmouth was great fun, and i failed and look to return for a second go soon. My thoughts was that i play though the base game first with the base characters and then adds all the extras,but maybe i`m losing out by going so ? Should i just click add and then play the base game and enjoy what riches that may spring forth ? Your thoughts please...?
  13. As well as battles in star wars with groups of troops, like battle of Endor or in Rogue one. SW also have the smaller scale actions, shoot outs in bars and back alleys or on a sail barge etc. I was thinking the other day that the "pips" on the cards could be for single models then units.. If 2 undercover rebels was walking down a alley on some remote planet, and 3 storm troops turn up looking at ID`S, then picking cards and playing out single models should work.. The "Ambush" card is one pip, so one of the rebels would pull out this hidden blaster and shoot first, the troopers could play "Assault" that gives all 3 troops the chance to get into any cover and return fire... Just thoughts off the top of my head.... love to hear your thoughts too Alan
  14. Legion will have a selection of battles we can play out, but be nice to see a option at some point that the winner of a selection of battles controls the planet. On a larger scale, that would mean that players would pick a planet to fight on next to control. Fighting on Hoth would be weather problems for troops without the right gear. Snow must slow down troops and lack of real hard cover. Fighting on planets that you are not ready for like swamps or jungles would have other effects, too much cover and no air support etc. Not sure what happens in Rune wars about this.... Thanks for reading....
  15. Just wanted to sat that since fighters would zoom over the table in a blink of a eye, it would be nice to make it more of a effect. Upgrade cards could call in air cover. Even AT AT attacks could come as well like artillery off board support. In the movies explosions are going off all over the battle field... We have to wait and see.... Thanks for reading
