Roman Cthulhu rules

I'm looking for a Cthulhu ruleset that would work in the Roman era.

Osprey produce a book on Cthulhu set in Rome, authored by Mark Latham.  They may fit with his "Broken Legions" rules also published by Osprey.  I have never read them so can't comment any further.

Thanks for that, I've got the Broken Legions rulebook, so those are perfect. The Cthulhu Invictus look quite interesting as well.

Hi there, sorry to bring an old thread back from the grave but seemed relevant and it's still on the front page of this forum :-)

I've just unveiled the Cohors Cthulhu Adventure Wargame, which will be in 28mm and utilise popular historical ranges - we'll be producing the heroes, cosmic horrors, and other unusual factions.

The ruleset is based on the CLASH of Spears miniatures game by Alvaro and Francisco Erize and is a collaboration with Modiphius co-founder Chris Birch (that's me!). I approached the brothers to utilise the CLASH of Spears mechanics to create a solo and coop adventure wargame set in the Roman empire but where the legionaries and tribes must contend with cosmic forces, eldritch horrors, and former allies twisted to serve the outer gods.

This is a completely new core rule book. The CLASH of Spears rules have been stripped back to the bare essentials and meshed with an innovative new AI and narrative engine to power your stories on the battlefield. Designed for solo and coop play, the rules have been written to get you playing from the moment you open the book (there's a series of tutorial missions to introduce the rules step by step). Players will create their heroes and see them evolve as they follow a planned storyline and procedural campaign led by player choices unfolding as they play.

I'm recruiting legionaries for the Beta Test of the rules, and you can sign up for this and news of Cohors Cthulhu - Adventure Wargaming in the Hidden War here:

You just got yourself another legionary! 

When are the beta rules going to be released?
