    Looking for CoC6/Achtung! Cthuhlu

    I'm a big fan of CoC/Horror style campaings in different genres. I have most of the Cthulhu material from Cubicle7 as well as the entire Achtung! Cthulhu set from Modiphius.

    I am in need of at least a basic CoC 6 Rule set to start from.

    Anyone have created one or know of one out there?

    Thank you

    I'm not very knowledgeable on all the available rulesets. But you should be able to use one of the generic rulesets to play any game system. Look into CoreRPG or MoreCore.

    There's a commercial CoC version 6 ruleset. It's $14.99 in the store.

    There's also the CoC 7E ruleset which is newer (released last year) and better supported by the current developers. I'm not sure the 6E ruleset even has developers anymore? The 7E ruleset was built to be backward-compatible with 6E content.

    As for Achtung! Cthulhu, at one point that was on my queue but Modiphius is being extremely cagey about allowing anything on FG, or claiming they have their own internal guy working on it. Who knows, maybe that's true? But regardless, anything they publish is off limits for FG unless or until they change their minds.

    Thanks all... after searching and searching I finally found the 6th ed rule set. Now to determine if it’s better to get the 7th ed rule set (I’ve no real interest in moving to 7th ed as I own nearly $700 in books for 6th ed).

    Hola gamerDude the 6e ruleset will be the most familiar to you in that case and it works well.

    7e uses % stats/skills
    7e has a pushing luck mechanism
    7e has rules for chases

    All new content is written for 7e and all 6e content will open in 7e and convert with about 95% accuracy.

    The game still largely plays the same way and the theme, feel is unchanged.

    There is also a Pulp Cthulhu supplement which creates more high powered PCs that are more likely to take it to the big bad and walk away intact...

    I've only played Cthulhu once, and I got the distinct impression no one is supposed to live long!

    Most people I speak to think Pulp Cthulhu is perfect for Achtung! Cthulhu, though some minor conversion is required.
