Call of Cthulhu: Horror Roleplaying in the Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft 6th Edition - Sandy Petersen and Lynn Willis

The sixth edition softcover is extremely well done and a bargain. Covers character creation, gamemaster, a Lovecraft stories, entities, spells, going insane and everything else to an appropriate level. If you don't really have much interest in gaming but like Lovecraft browsing this would still be enjoyable. It would be pretty hard to make a one volume game core book any better, except perhaps with fancy coloured artwork. Which you wouldn't get at this price and doesn't happen generally anyway. The Book Depository sells rpgs too, so now you know. The artwork in this is good, too. 3d6 style attributes, percentage based skills system and also measures your Sanity as an important game mechanic. An earlier rpg and still a classic. 5 out of 5
