We are so excited to announce the Call of Cthulhu Humble Bundle! For a limited time, you can donate to charity and receive up to 25 Call of Cthulhu titles valued at over $400. There are 3 different bundles which scale depending on how much you donate—the more you donate, the more books you’ll receive!

The Call of Cthulhu Humble Bundle is the perfect on-ramp for Cthulhu-curious tabletop roleplayers looking to take their first forays into the eldritch unknown while supporting a great cause.

Our long-time Cthulhu fans will find the Call of Cthulhu Humble Bundle a great way to get additional digital copies of your most well-loved books, or round out your existing library.

When you support the Humble Bundle, you’ll be donating to The World Wildlife Fund—one of the world’s largest and most experienced independent conservation organizations. The WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world’s biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

The Call of Cthulhu Humble Bundle is live now, and will be available until January 27th at 11am Pacific Time!

I got this bundle and I am trying to figure out if I have these PDFs is there anything else in the 7th edition I should be looking for? I saw another post that had a bulk list of every format of every book that was released but as I don't want a hard copy the list is a bit overwhelming.  

I am trying to go through the other list just in case there is not a better list.

What is the Core Rulebook for 7th edition?  Everything I'm reading suggests I only need the Investigator's, Keepers, and Keepers Screen to get started.

CHA23135-H    Keeper Rulebook (Core Rules) is all you need. Although the Investigator Handbook (players book) and Keeper Screen Pack (GM Screen) are very useful too.

Wow, that is quite the list!!!  🤯  😁

Aside from non "edition" books (such as the coloring book, or the "Beginning Readers" series) is everything that's NOT a 7e book marked as-such, e.g.
 "CHA23142    Dark Ages 2nd Edition" is presumably for CoC2e
 "CHA23165-H    Cthulhu Dark Ages (3rd Edition)" is presumably for CoC3e

Is that correct?

(Confusingly, tho, I think that "Harlem Unbound (2nd Edition)" is NOT for CoC2e, but the 2e of a CoC7e rulebook (the 1e of HU having been a produced by Darker Hue under license))

Please don't be confused: the second and third editions of Cthulhu Dark Ages, and the fifth edition of Masks of Nyarlathotep, are all products for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu. That's why they're on David's list of products that use the 7th edition rules. (They aren't the core rulebook, they have separate edition counts; I'm slightly startled that you didn't understand this, but maybe it was late when you wrote that.)

I'm sure everyone has bought this by now, but if anyone has not, it's worth finding the little "Adjust Donation" button when purchasing, as it allows you to increase the proportion of the sale that goes to both Chaosium and to WWF.

One more question.  The Humble Bundle (which I've now bought, go me) is listed as the 8th printing, but is undated on the ISBN page.  I also ordered a physical copy (I might be obsessive) and the date listed is in 2016.  Are there any meaningful edit differences and which (if any) is the "Current" 7th edition Keeper book?

There are no meaningful edit differences.

I purchased this today. Does anyone have a good way to print out the Keepers Screen? I was hoping to use the charts and make my own screen but when I print the chart it just comes out on one page:). I can barely read it. Any help would be appreciated.

On my Mac, I opened the PDF in Preview, enlarged the image so the screen filled one page. Then I took a screen shot of the first section, moved it across and took a screenshot of the second page etc. You can then print the jpegs.

You need to enlarge the PDF first otherwise the screenshot is not sharp when you take a screen shot.

I didn't try printing it though.

I think from memory the same tables are in the appendixes of the main rules and/or players guide. Sorry didn't check but I'm sure someone will confirm or otherwise 

I don't have a windows PC but I suspect there is a similar APP to Preview on Windows?

@Jlopienski I checked the Keepers & Investigators rulebook.. there's a summary in the Keepers book which is not quite a succinct as the GM shield.

I never hide behind a shield anyways.. its harder to intimidate and scare players when they can't see the .44 Magnum in your hand as you fiddle with your dice and stare at them with a faraway look that suggests you might just fail a SAN roll and shoot them.

I printed it out on standard 8-1/2x11 printer paper in landscape (each panned is one sheet), luckily I also have access to a drymount machine at work and drymounted each panel to one long piece of mat board, that I had scored before hand for the folds in the screen. This is very close to the actual size of the physical screen, if I did another one I might give a tad more length to the center section so that the screen folds down a bit better then having each section the same size as what was printed (when I printed and drymounted it I didnt take in account the thickness of the mat board I used, so when folded up the end panels are bowed slightly).

I already had the Keepers Screen pack that I had previously bought through Amazon. The one I printed off and drymounted is probably going to be put to use as a backup screen or maybe kept in my car so I have it in case I end up running a pickup game.

I will probably print off about a half dozen copies of the starter set quick start rules for scenarios I run for new players so during the game they have some of the rules at hand to go over (of course these will be collected and reused again and again with the recommendation that if the new players enjoyed the game that they can purchase their own starter set from the FLGS, Chaosium, Amazon, ect.. and get a Solo Scenario along with 3 more introductory scenarios to run for friends).

I highly recommend The World's Greatest Screen (TWGS) from Hammerdog Games. Just don't be a dope like me and leave it in your car on a hot day!

I bought this shortly after it went live. I just checked and realized the PDFs don't transfer to DTRPG. I was hoping to have all my RPG stuff in one place, but I'll manage! It's a phenomenal value!
