Sixtystone Press is happy to announce the arrival of the long-awaited Investigator Weapons volume 2, Modern day for contemporary Call of Cthulhu games.
Hans-Christian Vortisch presents iconic, common and less-common weapons found in service yesterday, today and tomorrow for use by Investigators, armed authorities and the cultists they hunt.
Hans presents variant stats for all of the covered weapons, and Investigator Weapons 2 also summarises weapons rules from all editions of Call of Cthulhu including seventh edition, as well as Basic Role-playing games such as The Laundry, as well as providing optional rules for enhanced play.
A POD version will be available shortly and early purchasers will receive a voucher allowing them to get the POD version at the same discount as the future PDF+POD bundle, when the POD version is released.
A print run for games stores is also planned for 2015.
Happy New Year!

The content of the book is unchanged from the Chronicle City release of 2012.
Investigator Weapons for Call of Cthulhu in the Classic era is a comprehensive collection of weapons available to stalwart investigators of the Cthulhu Mythos and their crazed cultist opponents.
Investigator Weapons covers handguns, rifles, shotguns, submachine guns, machine guns, flamethrowers, melee weapons, explosives, and special ammunition; and gathers together all the spot rules for injury, environmental conditions, and firearms combat in one place, as well as introducing many optional rules for enhanced play.
Hans-Christian Vortisch (author of Cthulhu – Waffen-Handbuch, GURPS High-Tech, GURPS Martial Arts: Fairbairn Close Combat Systems, and GURPS Tactical Shooting) has selected several dozens of the most typical or iconic weapons available to the discerning shooter in the 1920s and 1930s. These range from the famous Colt M1911 and Thompson submachine gun to lesser known but more widespread firearms.
Each weapon is illustrated and described in detail, as are variant models. Significantly, each weapon’s operation is described, as are its typical malfunctions. Finishing each weapon description is the movie use of the weapon – so you can see it in action – and a comprehensive statistics bar.
Keepers are not forgotten either. Typical weapons for non-player characters are suggested, as are likely weapons for cultists from around the world. A Keeper’s chapter examines the consequences of magic on firearms and ammunition, and the effect of firearms on Mythos creatures.
Investigator Weapons – the essential weapons book for Keepers and players of all editions of Call of Cthulhu.
