Pegasus Spiele

Pegasus SpielePegasus Spiele is the German publisher of 'Call of Cthulhu' at home in the lovely Hessian town of Friedberg. Located in the vile, rural Hessian back-country Pegasus Spiele can be considered the German equivalent of Chaosium but more sinister and ruthless - as expected from a publishing house and game retailer run by Hessians. Their support for THE KRAKEN is not unexpected since we even share our minions to get the vile jobs done.
