Books & Bullets is a Cthulhu adventure game that shoots the line of complexity between Trail of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Dark, and which avoids the Insanity death spiral without taking the sting out of the Lovecraftian horror.
The game includes three single-sided play sheets.
Players – introduction, story hook, character sheet, character generation rules, dice mechanics, and rules for insight, mythos checks, and helping/hindering.
Mythos Master – your agenda, insanity & death, scaling mythos checks, running adventures, and an introductory mystery
Resources – (for everyone) tech by era, word lists, name lists, equipment list, sources of inspiration
