"No swords. No wizards. Just regular humans, in way over their heads..." —Gizmodo

The Investigator Handbook contains expanded rules for creating players characters, a wealth of over 100 occupations and skill descriptions, as well as guidance on getting the most from the game.

The book introduces a range of organizations for your investigator to belong to, detailed information about the classic 1920s setting, equipment and weapons for both the 1920s and modern day, and expert tips and advice for all budding and experienced players alike.


Play with Less Prep

Call of Cthulhu players will love having the Investigator Handbook at their fingertips during play. The book enhances the player experience and speeds gameplay thanks to a wealth of quick-reference charts, player advice and setting information.

Full rules for creating unique characters for *Call of Cthulhu* which will be of benefit to players and Keepers alike. This includes a narrative explanation behind each of the core characteristics, a 1920s character name generator, and an in-depth example of character creation to guide you as you craft your very own investigator.

Over 60 new occupations: the core component to any Call of Cthulhu character. Each occupation lists the mechanical benefits (and drawbacks!) as well as a brief explanation to inspire your character. You’ll also find optional rules for experienced investigators, which allows you to take on the role of a war veteran, organized crime affiliate, grizzled police officer, and more.

A chapter on core advice for both roleplaying and Call of Cthulhu in general will benefit new and returning players. The chapter focuses on cooperation, separation of character knowledge and player knowledge, and setting your expectations. It also covers dealing with problems as they arise, learning not to rely on combat, setting goals for your character, and knowing when and how to appropriately use the mechanics of the game.
