In 2010 and 2011, Michael Fanara of Little Ferret Films created and shared a collection of high-quality prop handouts tailored to enhancing the play experience for several popular Call of Cthulhu scenarios and campaigns. These were released under the “GEEDUNK Prop Documents” banner and made available for free under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.
For folks familiar with the extremely high standards for handouts set by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society (whose work can be found in several Miskatonic River Press publications and on their website cthulhulives.org), Michael’s work achieves a very similar standard. This makes the GEEDUNK Props collections a very valable resource for running some of the most played Call of Cthulhu tales.
Sadly, however, the GEEDUNK website went dark some time in 2012 and these excellent resources have been hard to find since that time.
In the interests of keeping the GEEDUNK props available to the general public, Cthulhu Reborn has chosen to mirror them all here on this page. This by no means constitutes an attempt to claim this work as our own — this is most assuredly the work of Michael Fanara, republished here as a mirror to his (now-dead) site. This republication is made under the same licensing terms cited on the original GEEDUNK web page (see the bottom of this page) and explicitly identifies that the majority of the props linked to from this page make heavy use of fonts created by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Under no circumstances may these props be used for commercial purposes without prior written permission of Michael Fanara.
