In case you were on the fence about Gods War, Sandy said in the KickStarter comments:

Sandy Petersen wrote:
1) I have written rules for using the Gods War Monsters as a new Cthulhu Wars feature.

2) I am in the process of rules for using the Gods War Elder Races in Cthulhu Wars.

3) I am ALSO writing rules for using the Gods War Greater Gods as Neutral GOOs in Cthulhu Wars.

4) and, of course, I am going to write up the Cthulhu Wars GOOs as Monsters for Gods War.

To buy an expansion (like Monsters), all you need to do is back at the Minion level, then add on whatever money is appropriate. Tell your friends!

I wonder how well the Gods War map would work in Cthulhu Wars? It wouldn't make a whole heckuvalot of sense in the context of Glorantha and I don't know that it would be a straight port over, but maybe it'd be a different experience. Maybe all the same events happen throughout the game, just using the Cthulhu Wars factions instead? At some point though it just becomes, well why not just pick one game or the other?

There's another thread on this, but I think that it would work pretty well, and the alternate geometry is interesting. A few gotchas, though:

- Kylerela doesn't work well with Cthulhu Wars movement, so would need some sort of special rule to use. Maybe, whoever controls a gate there can move the island for 1 power as part of a move action?

- I'm not sure the whole Spike/Rift/Pool thing makes sense for Cthulhu Wars, so I'd suggested just going straight to the Pool.

- Getting out of Hell is potentially harder than in Gods War. Possible alternate rule - GOOs can give anyone permission, and can always move themselves to the Gates of Dawn. Or just forget the "you need permission" thing entirely.

- The Glorantha map is bigger than typical for Cthulhu Wars. i.e. More spaces per player. Playing on a size down fixes this. (So play 4 faction Cthulhu Wars on the 3 player Glorantha map.)

Cheers,
Graham

Yes! We can play 9 faction CW on 6-8 player Gloranthan map!

Now, Sandy needs to come up with that 9th faction for CW.

Is this the official announcement Sandy? Can we start to wildly speculate as to what the 9th faction will be???

I think the Tcho Tcho is considered the 'Human Faction'. Personally, a human faction would be a hard pass for me, but I know others have expressed interest. I was not particularly excited about the Tcho Tcho faction having so many 'dudes'. I like me some monsters! It does come with 6 proto shoggoths which look pretty awesome though.

No.



The 9th Faction Sandy is developing for CW O3 is not a "good humans" one. devil

(And O3 will only be Kickstarted after O2 is actually in your hands, we absolutely promise this time!)

Cthonians? ISTR you said ages ago that you had one designed...

PS: Does that mean we should expect 9 to 11 player map/s?

I'd have thought it about time they get Cthonians on board (as an official faction).
Though unlikely as the main thrust of OS3, I'd have thought it possible to create fully fleshed out factions for some of the Indies/Monsters as the reverse of Sandy creating official independent cards for the main Faction GOOs.
I'm still a little upset that none of Ramsey Campbell's fantastic creations got an official Faction.

Interesting that Arthur states it's not a 'good' humans one... there are other types of human - though I guess the Acolytes tend to be human, at least in part.

Evil humans (who aren't cultists)?
Maybe a race with some in human form? (Great Race?)
Cats (yes cats!) - with their enslaved 'owners'...

Also specifies that it's not the 9th Faction... So maybe some form of human faction is actually the 10th or 11th that's in development. (Not that anything other than 9th has been mentioned to date, afaik.)

If not "good humans" then the possibles are:

evil humans
good non-humans
evil non-humans


Doesn't really give much away though...

why can't it be both soblue

So, I don't want to give away too much just in case, but the 9th faction will totally have non-humans in it (how could it not? this is CTHULHU WARS).

Did I hear someone ask about Cthonians? whistle

Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city.

We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali.

I love Petersen Games but the price point of their creations forces me to be more considered in which of their campaigns I back. While it looks interesting, upcomung CW OS3 and teased apocalypse game mean, for me, that Gods War is a pass.
