You don’t have to spend a lot to get a huge digital bundle of Call of Cthulhu RPG books and gaming aids. At Humble, the Lovecraftian horror RPG set from Chaosium costs $25 and includes 25 items, and is full of items catered to both new players and and returning fans. Proceeds for this bundle go to the World Wildlife Fund.

For newbies, you can start your descent into madness with the Call of Cthulhu Stater Set (usually $27 in paperback), and you’ll also get the Investigator Handbook (usually $33), plus the Keeper Rulebook (usually $48). It should take you a long while to run through the many adventures you’ll get in this bundle, including Pulp Cthulhu, Malleus Monstrorum, A Cold Fire Within, and more.
