The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.49: Cards from the Smoke
Cards from the Smoke is the final supplement produced by Cubicle 7 for their Cthulhu Britannica: London line of rpg material (using the Call of Cthulhu 7th edition rules set). Consisting of 160 tarot-sized cards, Cards from the Smoke is essentially a freeform storytelling aid for (amongst other things) creating (and resolving) CoC scenarios - which is precisely the reason why I picked these up. Being the friendless curmudgeon I am, I have noted previously that one of my goals for 2018 is to construct a toolkit for facilitating something akin to a solitaire Call of Cthulhu rpg experience - to which end Cards from the Smoke seems to offer some very intriguing mechanisms to aid solo play.
