Clockwork & Cthulhu is back in print at last! C&Cth introduces the Lovecraft’s mythos to the 17th century historical fantasy game, Clockwork & Chivalry, but can also be played as a stand-alone game using just the Renaissance rules. Adds Sanity rules to the C&C setting, and features 3 extensive Cthulhu Mythos adventures set during the English Civil War. Available in PDF and print-on-demand (paperback and hardback) from DriveThruRPG:http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product/103450/Clockwork-%26-Cthulhu
Dark Streets is back in print! The adventures of the Bow Street Runners in their struggle against the minions of the Cthulhu Mythos is now available in paperback and hardback from DriveThruRPG.
And not only that, but the 50 page Dark Streets adventure, Hellfire, is available in print for the first time too!
So if you want some 18th century London-based Lovecraftian cosmic horror to while away your Christmas, rush over toCakebread & Walton’s DriveThruRPG store and check them out!
Dark Streets is designed to be used with the Renaissance Deluxe core rulebook, but is pretty compatible with other D100 systems…
Battlefield Press have announced the launch of a Kickstarter for their new RPG, Crios, set in a fantasy world where magic is dying and technology is taking over. The world of Crios is in the middle of its own version of World War One. Why are we mentioning this? I hear you ask. Because the game will be powered by our very own Renaissance D100 rules system! (See, this is why we released it under an Open Gaming License…) Get over to Kickstarter and back it, you know it makes sense.
Our black-powder D100 Renaissance Deluxe core rulebook is back in print, now in both paperback and hardback! Get it here, and you get the PDF free! And look out for more of our books coming back into print in the coming days…
Latest news from Cakebread & Walton is that the Pirates & Dragons Kickstarter was a great success! We not only funded the Pirates & Dragons Core Rulebook, but also an adventure sourcebook, Tales of Tortuga, and a bestiary, Creatures of the Dragon Isles. Thanks to everyone who backed us! For those who didn’t, the books will be available from our DriveThruRPG shop next year, in print and PDF, once all our Kickstarter backers have got their copies.
In other news, we’ve been working hard to update our back catalogue and get the files up at DriveThruRPG. The first two books – the Renaissance Deluxe Core Rulebook and Dark Streets - will be up in the next week or so, and will be available to order in hardback for the first time, as well as in paperback. All our print-on-demand books will come with a free PDF. We’ve taken the opportunity to correct some minor errors, and anyone who has the current PDF will get the updates automatically.
Also in the near future, we should have a print edition of our Dark Streets adventure Hellfire, and a novel, The Morecambe Medium, which tells of the adventures of the bumbling detective Augustus Mulberry and his more competent assistant, Doctor Touchstone, in a Victorian murder mystery set in a seaside town in the north of England.
With our departure from Cubicle 7 Entertainment, the Cakebread & Walton forums on their site will be closing down on 16th October. There’s an active unofficial forum for our Renaissance system over at BRP Central, but we’re still looking for a new home for Airship Pirates discussions. Any suggestions welcome!
