Some days ago I stumbled upon the website of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. I have already heard of this group before because they made that awesome “Call of the Cthulhu” silent movie. I had been looking for great fonts for a web project all day and one link lead me to the product page of the HPLHS’s props & fonts CD. For 35$ you get a CD full of great fonts (even a truetype font based on H.P. Lovecraft’s handwriting is included) and even greater props. I can remember the good old days when I created elaborate handouts for my group. But nowadays I often don’t have the time to create great props. Especially when you are running a Cthulhu campaign in the 20s, the props included on the CD will come in handy. You need a diploma from the Miskatonic University? No problem. Or even a 1920s US drivers licence? Just print it out! Most of the included PDF files have form fields that you can fill out. Within a few minutes you can create a lot of impressive props for your Call of Cthulhu game. And if you are already ordering the CD, have a look at the “Call of Cthulhu” DVD. It’s just 20$ and it’s a great movie for any Lovecraft fan!
