Cthulhu Dreamt is a multimedia storytelling experience, taking shape as a tabletop role-playing game, a soundtrack, a novel, and more. You can immerse yourself in the story through music, prose, a connected ARG—and then you can live the story!
The game is accompanied by an original and stream-safe soundtrack written and performed by members of Cthulhu Dreamt including Fable Factory founder Reed Reimer. The soundtrack also includes tracks that were performed by orchestras from Russia and The Czech Republic. The music was written to be an audio story experience, which can be enjoyed with the game or stand-alone, and will include loopable versions.
This game is built on an original D12 system designed by Adam Baffoni and written by Jaron R. M. Johnson, one of the lead designers of Monsters of Murka. It includes:
– a fully playable campaign and the game rules in one book
– 10 playable specializations and dozens of fully realized, horrifyingly original creatures.
This game expands on the mythos of Cthulhu while bringing it into an unsettling sci-fi future.
Book will be available in Digital, Standard Hardcover, and Slipcase. The Soundtrack will be available in Digital, Vinyl, and CD. Both book and soundtrack will have more features added throughout the Kickstarter campaign as unlockable tiers. A companion Novel will also be available as a digital reward with physical copies available as an add-on.
