Cthulhu Dice Bag by Steve Jackson
Cthulhu Dice Bag by Steve Jackson

I like this dice bag alot for its looks and sense of fun (hence the 4 stars), and I think it will sit on my table when I'm acting as a Keeper of Arcane Law. However, for all that, I don't think it holds half as many dice as it's supposed to. It comes with a lot of pre-filling/stuffing, so when unzipped I could just about squeeze in 2 sets of Chessex dice (i.e. 14 dice in all). Anyone skilled with a needle and thread (so not me) could probably unpick the interior, remove some of the filling and re-stitch to fit in more dice, if required. As a hopeless needle and thread person, I'll be using another dice bag and leave it to be a stuffed cuddly (eek!?) Cthulhu at gaming meets.

This is my favourite of all the Companion Chronicles released so far. Andy Lane has managed to recapture the spirit of Litefoot & Jago and write a very enjoyable release indeed. (Don't know who Litefoot and Jago are? Dash it, they're characters from Tom Baker's "Talons of Weng-Chiang" of course! )

I had heard good things about this release and was not disappointed. Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter have remarkably recreated the chemistry between their two respective characters and the result is a delightful romp through Victorian England, with a doctor who-style twist of course. By Jove, get yourself a glass of porter, light the gas lamp and enjoy an hour's audio… Read more
