An Ennie- and Golden Geek-award-winning supplement for Trail of Cthulhu.These cycles of experience, of course, all stem from that worm-riddled book. I remember when I found it in a dimly lighted place near the black, oily river where the mists always swirl. The Book. Forbidden Tomes. Bookhounds of London is a brand new campaign setting for Trail of Cthulhu, packed with period detail, where the Investigators seek out books about horror and strangeness and become, seemingly inevitably, drawn into the horror themselves. It provides in-depth material on London in the 1930s, carefully slanted towards Mythos investigators.An Ancient City. Bookhounds London is a city of cinemas, electric lights, global power and the height of fashion. Its about the horrors the cancers that lurk in the capital, in the very beating heart of human civilization. A Templar altar might well crouch, mostly forgotten, in the dreary Hackney Marshes, but altars to false gods tower over the metaphorical swamps of Fleet Street and Whitehall. And as for lost, prehuman ruins whos to say what lies under London, if you dig deep enough? Terrible Choices.The PCs arent stalwart G-men or tweedy scholars exploring forbidden frontiers. Instead, they acquire maps (and maybe guidebooks) to those forbidden frontiers from fusty libraries and prestigious auction houses. They are Book-Hounds, looking for profit in mouldy vellum and leather bindings, balancing their own books by finding first editions for Satanists and would-be sorcerers. They may not quite know what they traffic in, or they may know rather better than their clientele, but needs must when the bills come in. This volume includes:32 authentic full-colour maps with unique new street index of London in the 1930s, and plans of major buildings. A Mythos take on London in the 1930s, packed with contacts, locations and rumours. New abilities such as Document Analysis, Auction and Forgery, as well as new oc… (més)

    Booked to Die de John Dunning (Jannes)
    Jannes: Murder mystery in the book-dealer community. There are a few of them (books, not murders), but Dunning is one of the best.

    Grimoires: A History of Magic Books de Owen Davies (Jannes)
    Jannes: Evocative and informative, a great source for information and inspiration. Use it to rip of titles, if nothing else.
  3. 10
    El Club Dumas de Arturo Pérez-Reverte (Jannes)
    Jannes: Probably the biggest single influence on BHoL. The movie Ninth Gate was loosly based on it as well.It has it all: occult tomes, depraved wealthy collectors, dodgy booksellers, strange cults...

Probably one of the best concieved and presented role playing settings ever. Narrow in scope but increadlybly rich in detail and potential. This is gaming at it's finest - material dense enough to inspire you, but open-ended enough to allow you the freedom to play around with it almost endlessly. ( )
