In the 40th anniversary year of the game, Tabletop news site BELL OF LOST SOULS describes how the release of Call of Cthulhu in 1981 changed the face of Roleplaying: "Modern gaming wouldn’t look remotely like what it does today without [Sandy] Petersen and Call of Cthulhu. It was the game that finally got RPGs to leave behind their Wargame roots and step fully into a new genre of game." Read the article here: Bell of Lost Souls.

  21. The tablet has been deciphered - congrats to @Nerval, who gets to add an Old Persian experience check and wins a prize:
  22. Those lazy scribes, the tablet text should have advised the reader to 'PTO' cuneiform continues on other side... But congrats @Nerval you translated the text perfectly! You get an experience check for your Old Persian skill. Also messaging you about your prize.

  25. Our clay tablet announcement yesterday features a genuine passage transliterated from the RuneQuest Roleplaying in Glorantha rulebook, thanks to https://dumbcuneiform.com. And there's a prize going to the first ardent Gloranthaphile/Assyriologist who can decipher it! (BTW for Glorantha context, Old Persian Cuneiform was very much the New Pelorian of its day, 525 BC.)
