Publisher blurb:

HORROR ROLEPLAYING IN THE WORLDS OF H.P. LOVECRAFT

The Old Ones ruled the earth aeons before the rise of man. Traces of their cyclopean cities can still be found on remote islands, buried amid the shifting desert sands, and in the frozen wastes of the polar extremes. Originally they came to this world from the stars. They sleep now, some deep within the earth or beneath the sea. When the stars are right they shall again walk the earth.

Call of Cthulhu is a tabletop roleplaying game based upon the worlds of H. P. Lovecraft. It is a game of secrets, mysteries, and horror. Playing the role of steadfast investigators, you travel to strange and dangerous places, uncover foul plots, and stand against the terrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. You encounter sanity-blasting entities, monsters, and insane cultists. Within strange and forgotten tomes of lore you discover revelations that man was not meant to know. You and your companions may very well decide the fate of the world.

[...]

Call of Cthulhu, 7th edition, is backwards-compatible with all other available Chaosium titles.

User comment:

Though still largely compatible with the 2nd through 6th editions, the 7th edition introduces enough changes, particularly with regards to how stats are generated/represented and skill checks, to warrant being listed as a new RPG.

6 Short guide to the game system for players
This is a short (3 page) guide explaining the main player facing rules. This is directed at people who already know RPGs and are either new to CoC or want to be able to see what the main changes they need to know about are. If I have made any errors or there is something I should include or change I would appreciate the feedback.
