A Cold Fire Within: a new six-part campaign for Pulp Cthulhu

Recommended Posts

Out in PDF later this month* - A COLD FIRE WITHIN. A new and complete six-part Pulp Cthulhu campaign by Christopher Smith Adair. 

*as usual, if you purchase the PDF from Chaosium, not only do you get it to read and use straightaway, you also get the full price of the PDF off the printed book when it is out.

"Brendan Sterling sought answers in experimental past-life regression. Unfortunately, his mind isn’t the only one seeking answers in the past...."

Nice! Can't wait. I mean really! Can we get a peak at the back with the teaser and all?

I really enjoy the breadth of NPC portraits on the cover. It screams "lots of people/things to meet and stuff to do." That sounds more crass than I intended. LOL

I like the completely different art style. I like that you go in different directions. Will the interior art also be like this?

This looks ... unexpected. I'm curious, at the very least. The Two-Headed Serpent didn't really catch my interest, I think mostly because the cover screamed "Indiana Jones" a little too loud.

I'm curious by that statement, are you playing Pulp Cthulhu?

You mean it screams “lots of sinister people and things you didn’t want to meet and stuff to do to get away from them.”  Did you see the expressions on their faces?  No, they’re lying.  You didn’t go to junior high with them, and they aren’t working their way through college by selling magazines.  😱

No, but I might give it a try at some point ... I don't know, it just turned me off that the cover of "The Two-Headed Serpent" looked so specifically "Indiana Jones" to me. There's nothing wrong with that, I just thought: "meh, again someone using Indiana Jones aesthetics to signal pulp." It feels a little worn. The cover above looks fresher, to me.

Some of the superb interior art by Doruk Golcu from A COLD FIRE WITHIN:

The cover looks too cartoony for me, even if it is Pulp Cthulhu - I quite liked the Indy Jones inspired cover of The Two Headed Serpent. However the internal art for this book A Cold Fire Within looks really great, the kind of thing I would like to see in the book. It's got me interested now...

These pieces are fantastic! Wow. Having participated in this project, I'm naturally biased, but I hadn't seen these illustrations 'til just now. Really nice work!
