Hi all!

Hey alñ, I am new here and new to CoC roleplay games. I have mostly played D&D and a game of Stars without numbers, so if there is any rule book I need to read or something?

Cheers!

Hi alñ, welcome to the forums. :)

Call of Cthulhu is very rules light, so as long as the Keeper (Call of Cthulhu DM) guides you through character generation, all the rules you really need are on your character sheet.

There's a good mix here of 6th and 7th edition Call of Cthulhu games and some Trail of Cthulhu games. 1st to 6th edition CoC are virtually all the same rules, 7th is the only edition that really changes anything, but it's still 90% the same game.

Trail of Cthulhu is a totally different game, but it's even more rules light than Call of Cthulhu (it's more modern, and so doesn't have the AD&D / Runequest roots of CoC).

You can get the free quick start version of Call of Cthulhu 7th edition from chaosium's website, and it contains almost everything you need to know to get started.
