Cthulhu Masters goes live this weekend

Hour of doom is 9pm Sunday 20th March.

Going Live on Sunday evening at 21:00 is the Cthulhu Masters tournament, now in its fourth year.   We know that Cthulhu holds a special place in many player's hearts, and we make sure that there’s something new every year.  Prizes in previous years have included a bound Necronomicon (rumours as to the actual binding material can neither be confirmed nor denied), a perfect replica of the Indiana Jones Grail Diary, and various mythos creature parts carefully bottled.

The masters are held over two rounds, a qualifying round and then the final itself, players register for a slot in the tournament, not for an individual game or referee.  At the start of the qualifying round, the players are randomly allocated to a game and play one of six original scenarios prepared for the masters and never seen anywhere else.  At the end of the game, the players themselves carry out a sealed vote, giving points for a number of categories that total into a final score for each player.  The player with the highest totals is given a place in the final, and all players entering the masters should have the following slot available to play in if they prevail.  There is still time after the culmination of the qualifying round to return to the front desk and get a ticket for another game if you did not make it to the finals.

At the finals, another original scenario is played, and once again the players place their votes as in the previous round to give three lead totals for the final results.

Third place this year will win a copy of the original journal notes of Dr Jorgans deckelmers "Notes on the Thirsty"

Second prize this year will win a perfect copy of Dr Jorgans pocket watch, complete with inscriptions in the casing.

First prize this year is the complete vampire hunters kit of Dr Jorgan, including the manual in which he makes the notes regarding the beasts and all the tools of his trade.  For those no doubt concerned, all items are excellent quality props and in no way harmful (so please don’t try and use it to actually go out and hunt vampires…)

A note regarding the prizes this year is that they are all linked, and if the players in the final choose to investigate them together, there are additional mysteries that will be revealed after the game has finished.
