GURPS Cthulhupunk

Post by Havard » Sun Oct 04, 2015 10:49 pm

Anyone else own this? I remember getting this back in the day figuring it was kind of neat since you got everything you needed to run a Cthulhu Campaign as well as Cyberpunk rules in one sourcebook.

Anyone actually play in the setting? Why?/ Why not? :)

I own it, and used it for a couple of short campaigns, many years ago. IIRC, you need GURPS Cyberpunk in order to make proper use of the new tech, and the setting is a modification of the GURPS Cyberworld setting. I don't own either of those books, and was more interested in using the Mythos material for a modern-day game anyway.

Mixing Cthulhu with any genre is going to create something interesting, but perhaps Cyberpunk less than other genres -- the Mythos tends to act as a behind the scene menace in an otherwise mundane setting, whereas Cyberpunk assumes a setting where almost everyone is already hostile (often actively) to the PCs.

I do not own it, and know I really want to own it. Where can I find a copy?

Have you tried SJG's online store? (Warehouse 23)

I checked Warehouse 23, and it's not available there. The game was done under a very limited license from Chaosium, so I'm guessing that SJ Games doesn't have the rights to sell digital copies (which they do with most of their own books through W23). I did a quick search on Amazon, and there seem to a number of sellers there with copies for around USD$25-$30.
