Hi Chaosium and fans. Im curious about the new designs of the CoC line going forward. I'm pleased to hear that Chaosium are aiming for high production full color hard case books. Its the type of values that will encourage me to purchase Pulp Cthulhu.
In fact as much as I enjoy the design of the KS keepers and players books, is there any possibility of updating it to the level of Pulp Cthulhu? It is just that bit more polished, without an excess of distracting borders, overly dark drop shadows, tighter asthetic. Moving forward, I predict the core books will lag behind the quality of the upcoming line and be that bit harder to actually read.
In complete contrarian backflip to this quibble on perfection (awsome work Badger) I also really enjoy the clear economical & classic design of the BW Nameless Horrors. Softcover BW scenario collections (with fewer but higher quality illustrations) are the kinds of books I could afford and enjoy playing from. Otherwise Im going to struggle justify purchases beyond rulesbooks and pdf.
Ideally Id like to be able to purchase the books in such a format as a cheap POD or similar plain soft cover alternative to the amazing Hard Backs which I fear I won't be able to justify. I mean scenario are kind of consumables.
So there you have it, I want my cake and to eat it thrice - a typical RPG gamer.
