Chaosium is coming out with a Call of Cthulhu Starter Set! Apparently, this news has been out for a couple of months but as usual I missed it. I've always had a passing interest in CoC but have never dived in. I've read the quick starts and such but never went beyond that. Particularly now that the core rules are split into two expensive hardback books. So, this might actually be the product to get me started. It looks like it's going to be a boxed set for around $25. You can find more news here. If you actually scroll down into the comments a representative from Chaosium confirms the contents of the box. Also, it appears to be available for pre-order on Amazon and other sites.
