Report Horror Setting in BRP in Basic Roleplaying Posted May 11, 2013 Saying what you say is not at all bashing CoC. It's a matter of fact! The BRP golden book is more developed than CoC in terms of rules. But CoC is more developed for what it is designed to do: lovecraftian horror. So, both are great even if BRP contains all the rules of CoC... Plus many others! It explains why I use Call of Cthulhu adventures with the big golden books. Since I've got a lot of CoC books, I store up the advantages of both! What game system did you use before? Personally, I come from GURPS and have switched to BRP mainly for its simplicity. I've played quite a bit of CoC, oWod and some Dead Reign and Nightbane from Palladium Books. All four systems require the storyteller/gm to have a developed plot and be able to tell a story (obviously from CoC). OWod more than the Palladium games and CoC more than any of them, but I still try and focus more on story due to my gm'ing experience.
