You can find the book here.
The content of the book is unchanged from the Chronicle City release of 2012.
“It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire. For the cat is cryptic, and close to strange things which men cannot see. He is the soul of antique Aegyptus, and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroe and Ophir. He is the kin of the jungle’s lords, and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa. The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language; but he is more ancient than the Sphinx, and remembers that which she hath forgotten—H.P. Lovecraft, The Cats of Ulthar, 1920
Welcome to Cathulhu, the Call of Cthulhu alternative setting where feline sleuths investigate the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos.
Cats are mysterious, self-contained creatures. Both wild and domestic in nature, they are silent observers of all that goes on around them.
In Cathulhu, discover the secret life of the cat as a Dreamlands warrior and a Waking World sleuth. Cats are the secret allies of humanity in the fight against cosmic horror; confronting overlooked machinations orchestrated from the sewers, tracking down sorcerers and cultists in the Waking World, and taking the fight to Nyarlathotep’s minions in the Dreamlands with the Cat Armies.
Cathulhu contains full character generation information for creating feline characters, feline abilities, background information on the cult of Bast, a short bestiary of feline opponents and an introductory adventure, ‘The Black Cat’.
Cathulhu is fully compatible with Call of Cthulhu sixth edition rules.
Cathulhu is intended as an interlude to mainstream Call of Cthulhu games, and provides a different POV to the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. It can be played light-heartedly or seriously. The opponents of the feline investigators can range from dastardly rat-kings or mutant sewer lizards, to lone mad sorcerers, or all the way to a full-blown confrontation with the Cthulhu Mythos.
Cathulhu is the English-language version of Katzulhu, which first appeared in the German-language Cthuloide Welten magazine, #1 and #2, in 2001/2002. The Katzulhu rules were reprinted in 2009 to accompany the release of Pegasus spiele’s Dreamlands sourcebook.
Cathulhu was developed by Ingo Ahrens, Adam Crossingham and Daniel Harms from Ingo’s original Katzulhu, and was published in Worlds of Cthulhu magazine #4 in 2006. This edition is revised from the Worlds of Cthulhu version and includes additional information about Sabbat cats, and the cult of Bast through the ages.
Sixtystone Press is looking for new investigator organisations for new investigators to join. In Seventh edition, an organisation is a reason for an investigator to belong and to investigate. Organisations rationalise character introductions and sometimes give benefits to their members.
The Seventh edition Investigators’ Book by Chaosium has some sample organisations; however Sixtystone’s Organisation Book will have more than 50 that you can use ‘as is’ or customise to suit your group’s requirements.
Sixtystone is looking for submissions for investigator-orientated organisations for this book. Sixtystone is throwing open the submission process to any one who is interested: whether experienced published author or fresh newbie.
We are looking for fresh new ideas and exciting ways of allowing investigators to work together. The organisations can be for any era: Invictus, Gaslight, Twenties or Modern; although we expect most submissions to be for the Twenties setting. We encourage authors to provide advice for use in different eras where possible.
Sixtystone welcome submissions from European authors so long as they are in English. We hope to present a number of non-Anglophone organisations if submissions are sufficient.
This project has successfully completed the submissions phase and is no longer accepting submissions or enquiries.
The Primeval Thule Kickstarter is close to finishing and only just over $6000 short of funding.
Sixtystone have the opportuity to develop Call of Cthulhu Sword & Sorcery products for the setting if it funds, so if you want to see any of these, please think about pledging.
So now’s the time back the project.
Remember if Primeval Thule is successful, Sixtystone Press will be providing conversion stats for seventh edition Call of Cthulhu. Kevin Ross may do an exclusive scenario as well.
So back Primeval Thule if you want to see some Cthuloid Sword & Sorcery action.
Primeval Thule and Call of Cthulhu!
SASQUATCH AND SIXTYSTONE OFFER CALL OF CTHULHU IN PRIMEVAL THULE
Gamers Can Experience Horror RPG in a Swords-And-Sorcery World
Auburn, Wash.—July 12—Sasquatch Game Studio and Sixtystone Press Ltd are joining forces to combine the 7th edition Call of Cthulhu RPG and the Primeval Thule campaign setting.
Primeval Thule, currently the centerpiece of a Kickstarter campaign, was designed to be compatible with three rule sets: Pathfinder RPG, 13th Age, or 4th edition Dungeons & Dragons. Now backers of Sasquatch Game Studio’s Kickstarter campaign can obtain a PDF conversion book letting them use the 7th edition Call of Cthulhu rules to create games with Lovecraftian horror in a savage world.
Sixtystone Press will design the conversion document to bring the RPG field’s preeminent horror rules to Primeval Thule, a full-fledged swords-and-sorcery setting. Sasquatch Game Studio will make the conversion PDF available to its Kickstarter backers at the $40 level (all digital) and $80 and higher levels (digital and print book). The conversion document will also be available for later sale.
“I am pleased and delighted to be offered the chance of working with the great guys of Sasquatch Game Studio. Primeval Thule is a fabulous distillation of the pulp swordsmen influences of Lovecraft, Howard, and Smith; and Sixtystone is happy to bring that world of excitement and horror to Call of Cthulhu, the original dark phantasy RPG system. Sixtystone aims to retain the full flavour of Primeval Thule, whilst emphasising the ancient secrets and ever-present horror that defines Call of Cthulhu,” Sixtystone publisher and editor-in-chief Adam Crossingham said.
David Noonan, co-founder and creative director of Sasquatch Game studio, said that the Call of Cthulhu conversion PDF marked another step in Sasquatch’s commitment to making Primeval Thule available to multiple rules systems.
“We’ve always taken a cross-platform approach to Thule, and now you can explore this dangerous, savage place in any of four rules systems,” he said. “Lovecraft’s influences abound in Primeval Thule, so a Call of Cthulhu game set there makes a lot of sense.”
Sixtystone Press Limited is a British-based licensee for Chaosium’s award-winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. Sixtystone Press has recently published Investigator Weapons, volume 1, and Lost in the Lights for Call of Cthulhu, and Ghouls: Eaters of Death by Daniel Harms and Unhallowed Wizardry by John Snead are imminent.
Sasquatch Game Studio LLC, founded by longtime D&D designers Richard Baker, David Noonan and Stephen Schubert, is devoted to delivering top-quality hobby game experiences. Its inaugural project, Primeval Thule, is currently undergoing a Kickstarter campaign.
After Matthew Ruane’s excellent trail blazing efforts, Sixtystone are throwing Colonial Lovecraft Country open to playtesting.
We are looking for numerous groups to playtest the rules, the scenarios and the campaign. We would like you to playtest what is written, and critique that rather than rewrite or offer solutions.
You and your group must be willing to sign and return an NDA, and remain silent on your experience until publication or when given the all clear from Sixtystone. You may choose to playtest the rules and the scenarios; or the rules and the campaign; or the rules, scenarios and campaigns. The campaign is shorter than the scenario book.
Sixtystone want to aggressively playtest the product proceeding publication so you and your group should be willing to commit to the playtest for the next couple of months.
There is no pay for this, but you will receive a handsome credit in the final books and every member of your group will receive PDF copies of the Colonial Lovecraft Country books.
Playtest reviewers are not required at this moment; you must be part of a group to qualify.
If you wish to participate in this playtest, please send an email to Sixtystone.firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line that starts [CoLoCo Playtest] by Wednesday 17 July 2013.
Thank you for your continued interest in Colonial Lovecraft Country.

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.
Do not misunderstand me. Of course you have felt it. You and I, no matter how different, still have that small center at the base of the brainstem, that element of a long-forgotten past that remembers it. We grow frustrated with our lack of food, shelter, or a mate. We seethe against the slights and insults that arise in our interactions with our fellows. We lash out against those who seek our harm.
Still, the capacity to understand anger eludes us. Perhaps those who have fought and hated and died for generations in a common cause might be able to touch on the very edge of it. I doubt it very much.
What can you know of ceaseless, roiling anger, that outlasts the mountains, the rivers, even the aeons themselves? Anger that is white-hot as a forge and as cold as an ice-field? Anger that seethes until the day when it will burst forth upon the world, as a flood might toss a straw?
Make no mistake. This is no band of your fellows seeking to bring back a minor expression of an indifferent cosmos. This is no mere messenger, sent to prate and mock. This is the fury of a god, whose wrath is infinite, and who has toppled mightier civilizations than yours.
Will you stand in his path?
Fury of Yig is a short campaign set in the modern era. Written by the Dan Harms, he of the Encyclopedia Cthulhiana.
Adam Crossingham’s opinion “Fury of Yig will be the best researched, superior written, imaginatively plotted, internally consistent, true to its design aims, modern-day campaign yet published.”
