Call of d6-lite is a super light-weight role-playing game featuring the Cthulhu mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. The game presents virtually no setting background directly, leaving the game master to incorporate whatever elements he or she would like from elsewhere. Characters have five Statistics (Attributes), including Strength, Stamina, Smarts, Speed, and Sanity. Statistics are ranked with narrative tags such as "Weak" or "Tough". Characters who suffer a sufficient loss of Sanity must be removed from play (e.g., they are considered insane).
