View Full Version : What lovecraftian RPG should I choose?

2017-07-06, 07:21 PM
I was hoping to get into one of the Cthulhu RPGs but I can't decide between Trail of Cthulhu (ToC) or Call of Cthulhu (CoC).

I've only played 5th edition d&d (and a very small amount of 3.5) but I'm open to trying out a new system.

My question(s) is/are: should I buy ToC or CoC? If I get CoC which edition should I get? What books do I need to buy to play each system? And why is my computer screen bleeding while showing me impossible beings from beyond our universe?

Thank you and may your dreams bring you to a marvelously sunset city.

What are you using it for? ToC is probably a better game in general, but it's very heavily focused towards investigation and investigators, so if you're doing something else CoC might be a better fit. On the other hand, if you're planning on leaning a bit more towards action horror then you'll want Delta Green or Nemesis. Of these Nemesis is free, so that's worth looking at regardless.
