The Spawn of Azathoth: Herald of the End of Time [BOX SET]
"Herald of the End of Time. Few attended the funeral of the old man. And even fewer saw the headless apparition which appeared in an investigator’s room. The keen-witted investigators find significance in the unfortunate death. Through their persistence they begin to unravel a secret implying doom for everyone. Monstrous peril confronts the intrepid investigators as evidence leads them across the United States and into the depths of Asia.

SPAWN OF AZATHOTH is a new supplement for CALL OF CTHULHU, the roleplaying game which recreates the atmosphere and adventures of the stories of H. P. Lovecraft, world-famous horror-tale author.

Within this box are three books – the parts for seven distinct linked adventures, each of generous play time.

The first book, From Beyond the Grave, contains keeper introduction and orientation material, and presents “Providence,” the first adventure.

The second book, The Spawn Approaches, contains the other six adventures, “Garrison,” “St. Augustine,” “Andaman Islands,” “Ulthar and Beyond,” “The Eternal Quest,” and the climax of the campaign, “The Spawn of Azathoth.” Lovecraft created a special fantasy world, the Dreamlands, and two of the adventures take place there. Special rules included govern the behaviour of investigators in that other place, including transformation of physical objects and nightmare effects.

The third book, The Azathoth Papers, contains more than 60 news clippings, tome and diary excerpts, letters, and other clues. Three special sections of optional clues – quotations from Mythos tomes, gleanings from historical research, and news clippings – allow keepers to expand upon the clues that their investigators find, to emphasize certain kinds of information or to introduce lines of reasoning not otherwise uncovered."

Also contains a business card: "Emmott Baxter" for "E&E News Clipping Service."

Terror Australis: Cthulhu Down Under: Australian Background and Adventures
"AUSTRALIA is a new-settled land, full of opportunity. But it is also an ancient land, filled with the dreamings of the Aboriginals, hunters and gatherers who came first. And, as famous horror writer H.P. Lovecraft wrote, long before the humans came shocking and awesome entities, whose purposes are unguessable.
TERROR AUSTRALIS includes three roleplaying adventures, "Old Fellow That Bunyip," "Pride Of Yirrimburra," and "City Beneath The Sands," as well as extensive information about the Aboriginal inhabitants, their mystical concept of Dreamtime, inhabitants of the Dreamtime, Australian history, transportation in the 1920s, contemporary Australian slang, famous hauntings, and a special chapter analyzing the Dreamtime (Alcheringa) in roleplaying terms. Intended as a roleplaying supplement and useful for any roleplaying system, TERROR AUSTRALIS also contains many pages of illustrations and maps to intrigue any Australia buff.
This book is a companion to publications such as H.P. LOVECRAFT’S DREAMLANDS and GASLIGHT, which also situate Cthulhu players in other times and places."

Arkham Unveiled
"Arkham is a small town along the Massachusetts coast — the setting favored by author Howard Phillips Lovecraft in his tales of monstrous horror.
All in all a quiet place, Arkham is best-known as the home of Miskatonic University, an excellent school becoming known for the collection of esoteric and disturbing volumes residing in its library's restricted collection. These tomes form the foundation of all current efforts to thwart the dire desires of the Mythos legion.

ARKHAM UNVEILED contains extensive background information about this New England town — written to be used by serious investigators as a base from which to further explore the mysteries of the Cthulhu Mythos. Pertinent buildings, useful people, and important locations are described in depth. A 17x22" Players Map of Arkham is bound into the back, and four new, thrilling adventures complete the package. These sinister tales make full use of the background materials and provide the utmost challenge to the players' roleplaying and investigatory skills."

Return to Dunwich
"Dunwich is a small village located along the Miskatonic, upriver from Arkham. Until 1806, Dunwich was a thriving community, boasting many mills and the powerful Whateley family.
Those among the Whateleys came to know dark secrets about the world, and they fell into the worship of unwholesome creatures from other times and places. Retreating to the hills and forests surrounding the town, they betrayed their uncorrupted kin.
Prosperity fled, and a dark despair seized the people. What remains is a skeleton town, mills closed, its citizens without hope or future. However, secrets of the Mythos survive, to be discovered by brave and enterprising investigators.

Return to Dunwich contains extensive background information about a town originally created and described by H.P. Lovecraft in his terrifying tales of horror. Pertinent buildings, useful people, and important locations are described in depth. A 17x22" map of Dunwich Country depicts the area for miles around. Two new scenarios are included: one introductory and the other suitable for many evenings of play. Various links and leads to Arkham are included; possession of Arkham Unveiled is useful but not necessary."

Horror on the Orient Express [BOX SET]

"Three Times in One Night! A puzzling headline begins a front-page article found in the Times of London. Three men, all identical in identification, were found dead in the same room of the Chelsea Arms. All were dispatched in a similar manner - stabbed through the heart.

Then the home of a valued friend burns to the ground, severely burning him in the process. An odd summons, a surreptitious meeting, and a thousand-mile journey begins on the legendary rail service carrying the investigators to the Gateway of the Orient."

"THIS BOX CONTAINS a campaign-length adventure supplementing the roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu. These notes enumerate and discuss the intent behind each item in the box.
• The Campaign BOOK — short essays summarize the history of the Simplon-Orient Express, how the service functions, and the campaign and background integral to it. Here are found explanations and labels for each type of train car, including labeled diagrams of a locomotive and locomotive cab, and additional information.
• Through The Alps — this book starts the actual campaign. Adventures occur in London, Paris, Poissy, Lausanne, Dream Lausanne, and Milan.
• Italy And Beyond — continuing the campaign, this book's adventures occur in and near Venice, Trieste, Postumia, Dream Zagreb, Belgrade, and Oraszac.
• Constantinople And Consequences — the third scenario book concludes the campaign. Investigators face peril in Sofia and Constantinople, and westward to Paris. It ends in London, where the trip began.
• Player Handouts — this booklet contains all but one of the handouts needed for the game; the missing handout (the Scroll of the Head) is separate in this package.
• Strangers on the Train — a booklet of peripheral characters, all with motivations and identities ready for the keeper's use, and complete enough to be handed out as player-characters. The perforations allow immediate player use, without disrupting play.
• Routes of the Orient Express Map — shows some of the luxury European routes. Tens of thousands of miles more were tracked: this is an Orient Express map, not a rail map of Europe, nearly all of which was well-served by rail.
• Passports — four identical passport forms are provided, modeled on the then-standard 1921 Department of State document, which is replaced later in 1923. The passport was indeed a single sheet of paper, folded to quarters so that the passport-and-shield showed in front; it was carried in a traveler's wallet or in the green cardboard sheaf emblazoned with the national crest, as supplied by the State Department.
War and the subsequent Red-Menace scare prompted authorities to attempt to limit generally-authorized travel during these few years; we encourage merely the listing of 'all nations' where name of country is required. The 'accompanied-by' section could indicate additional family members. The personal description section depended on unscientific criteria: mouth might be 'determined,' nose might be 'prominent' or 'snub,' and so forth. The passport number would be six-digit, starting with a 1. The photo should be black-and-white.
Though the keeper is under no obligation to do so, the intent behind providing four copies is to give the players souvenirs of the campaign. If desired, a very limited number of additional copies can be obtained by mail from Chaosium; see the separate order form.
• Luggage Stickers — they are modeled after historical stickers. Use a knife and straight-edge to separate the two images. The backings are gummed to adhere when wet, like stamps. These are for the keeper. A very limited number of additional copies can be obtained by mail from Chaosium; see the separate order form.
• Scroll of the Head — a player handout, probably gained during the Lausanne adventure. Instructions for use and presentation occur on it.
• Sedefkar Simulacrum — a cardboard version. Cut around the segments (leave a little white border), and award the corresponding segment or segments as the investigators recover them.
• Train Car Plans — four sheets, each different, depicting six different cars: one of these is for the keeper's eyes only. They are large enough for the positioning of scale miniatures. Separate the cars and deploy them at least during the 'Repossession' and 'Blue Train, Black Night' chapters. The Campaign Book has explanatory labels for the cars.
• Period Poster — reproduces an Orient Express poster of the epoch. That rail map includes a route not shown on the Route Map. Very limited additional copies of the poster can be obtained from Chaosium; see the order form."

Kingsport: The City in the Mists
"Kingsport is a coastal town located a morning's stroll from Arkham. Draped in mists and fog, it is home to artists and fishermen, sailors and dreamers. Here dreams and reality mingle to an unsettling degree.
Some find solace in such dreams; others find only terror and death. Charles Baxter's dreams drove him to despair. He took his own life, throwing himself into the sea. The only clues to his demise: a water-soaked collection of poems.
Horrors exist in the real world of Kingsport as well, remnants of an ancient witch-cult that once infested the town. Unspeakable things crawl through their burrows beneath Central Hill and lurk in the fogs off Jersey Reef, preying on fishermen and unsuspecting tourists alike.
Kingsport's soothing atmosphere and beautiful setting beckons to vacationers. Its perch on the brink of the dreamworld inspires artists. Investigators come to Kingsport to find understanding of the dark realms of the Cthulhu Mythos.

Kingsport describes this fabled Massachusetts town in meticulous detail — its important personalities, buildings, history, and its weird people and places. This book also features a fold-out players' map of the town, a tourist brochure describing places of interest, and three new adventures. These range in tone from wonder to terror, and bring to life the unique atmosphere of Kingsport. These tales of dreams, mysteries, and alien horrors include player aids for added realism and enjoyment."

Escape From Innsmouth
"Innsmouth was once a prosperous trading town located on the north coast of Massachusetts. Early in the 19th century her great sailing ships traveled the world in search of trade and treasure.
A series of mishaps brought the town to the brink of financial ruin, but it was saved when Captain Obed Marsh discovered a secret source of gold among the islands of the South Pacific. Prosperity returned to Innsmouth, but only for a short time. The gold held a price that now, nearly a century later, has left the town a decaying hulk, its diseased citizenry mere shambling parodies of what were once people. Shunned by its neighbors, Innsmouth slowly dies.
Some whisper that old Obed Marsh made a pact with the Devil. Others know the truth: the town itself has sold its soul, bringing down a curse and forever sealing its doom.

ESCAPE FROM INNSMOUTH is based on H.P. Lovecraft's popular "The Shadow Over Innsmouth," a haunting tale of a nearly forgotten town cursed by a blasphemous pact. ESCAPE FROM INNSMOUTH contains pertinent information about the town and its residents, maps of important locations, and two lengthy scenarios. A 17x22 inch players' map is also included."

The Cairo Guidebook
"The opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 and the breathtaking beauty of the treasures within sparks a wave of Egyptomania that washes across the world. Dowagers and flappers alike wear Egyptian-style jewelry. Men wear tarbouches to work on Wall Street, and smoke hashish from nargeeleh water pipes. The animalistic motifs of ancient Egyptian art blend with the clean lines of Art Nouveau to create new styles of interior decorating.
Excavations in the Valley of the Kings make or break the careers of archaeologists. Some reap fortunes from copying tomb items and selling them as genuine artifacts. Others steal genuine artifacts and re-sell them to unscrupulous collectors.
Frequent riots and political assassinations challenge British rule, but Egypt is to be a protectorate of the British Empire for decades more. Westerners openly wear guns in the streets of Cairo, but sternly forbid firearms to the locals.
Visitors are thrown into a powder-keg of political intrigue and sordid motive, of anarchy and rich adventure as romantic and improbable as a tale from the Arabian Nights.

THE CAIRO GUIDEBOOK is set in the 1920s. With it, Keepers can easily base many adventures in and around this teeming city. Dozens of scenario hooks are highlighted in the text. Period maps of Cairo, Alexandria, and Port Said are included, and dozens of plans of ancient and modern-day structures are shown. Getting to Cairo is detailed. The sights of Cairo, and the important excursions possible from Cairo are discussed, as are the important people of the city and the culture of the nation. Though intended for roleplayers, all the information in this book is genuine and accurate for the period, and some is found nowhere else. Mythos influence is considered. There are also resources concerning the gods of ancient Egypt and an extensive timeline of events from Pre-Dynastic Egypt through the end of the 1920s. Indexed. Dozens of illustrations and more. Dozens of maps and plans."

Miskatonic University: The University Guide Book
"The world sees Miskatonic University as a solid New England institution. Its professors and departments are on par with those of any Ivy League school, among the best in the nation.
Founded posthumously in 1765 by seacaptain Jeremiah Orne, Miskatonic University grew from the acquired assets, and debts, of ailing Arkham College. Orne laid claim to the older 1690 institute which he (from beyond the grave) invigorated with new life.
He had accumulated many books and curious objects during his voyages along the eastern seaboard and to the Caribbean and South America. His curiosities were to stock a museum; his money funded a college; his books became its library.
MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY provides a coherent setting and background for running investigations using the CALL OF CTHULHU roleplaying rules. Chapters include Welcome To The University, Exploring the Campus, The Library and Exhibit Museum, M.U. By Department, Administrative Trivia, People At M.U., Social Life, In And Out Of The Academic World, and It's The End Of The World As We Know It. It also features a complete index, and an array of handouts."

Taint of Madness: Insanity and Dread Within Asylum Walls
"Taint of Madness is a long sourcebook discussing the recognizable forms of insanity, the historical treatment of the insane, how the mad or incompetent are handled, and what the legal complications of being classified insane may portend. Plenty of game-related information and suggestions are made. The Cthulhu sanity rules are modified. There are three fully-developed asylums (Bethlehem for the 1890s, Arkham Sanitarium for the 1920s, and Bellevue for the 1990s), as well as a short scenario for each. Background information includes notes for conducting psychiatric interviws, sample commitment and release papers, a glossary of psychiatric terms corrected for the era, extensive information concerning historical asylums in the US and across the globe, an annotated bibliography, and plenty of illustrations. Indexed."

"Eric Rowe & I contributed the middle of this book: asylums and adventures. There are three asylums spotlighted: Bedlam (in the 1890s), Arkham (in the 1920s), and Bellevue (in the 1990s).

I think the asylums came out quite well. They contain complete descriptions and are well researched. We found some wonderful period books on Bedlam in the Main Stacks at UC Berkeley. The Arkham Sanitarium information came mainly from other books that Chaosium had put out, including Arkham Unveiled. The nice folks out at Bellevue sent us lots of information on that modern-day hospital.

The adventures are average: not bad, not great. The prime point was to show how the asylums could be used in real adventures. So, there's one adventure where you get to play patients, and another when you get to play workers at an asylum, and one last adventure where you play fairly normative investigators, looking into Cthulhoid activity.

The adventures cover some of the themes that interest me most from the Mythos: the Dreamlands, ghouls, and dead chickens. No, really."

The Compact Arkham Unveiled
"The town of Arkham is the home of Miskatonic University. The town and it's inhabitants are like a beacon that casts the best of civilization into the darkness and mystery beyond. Not far away, the Colour Out of Space landed and sapped the land.
To the northwest, the Dunwich Horror terrified the farmers until Arkham's intellectuals fought the thing and vanquished it. To the northeast lurks the decaying town of Innsmouth and its tainted, guilty, sullen inhabitants. Hoary gambreled Kingsport, seaport of dreams, is a few hours' walk to the east.
But in Arkham, all is normal and peaceful. Faith, family values, and decency thrive along the banks of the Miskatonic -- or so the townsfolk believe..."

The London Guidebook
"For seven centuries the reach and power of the British Crown was regularly challenged, but never dispelled. The Crown's capital city, London, in the 1920s three times older than the Crown itself, grew to he the pre-eminent confluence of old privilege, new money, dynamic creativity, social class friction, madness, tuberculosis, science, education, and advanced medical research. Bumbling criminals, evil geniuses, refugee intellectuals, social deviants, harmless eccentrics, moral reformers, occultists, and millions of utterly normal people gravitated to London. The larger any city becomes, the more it becomes the place to be, and the more reasons people find for going there. London was the largest city in the world.
With detail chosen not only for social or political importance but also for the curious, bizarre, and supernatural, this book captures much of London's special flavor. Keepers and interested readers will find in it substantial background and a wide range of information, including new occupations for the game, famous people, London by district (with a half-dozen general maps, and many more detailed plans and illustrations of particular buildings and complexes), the suburbs, the Thames, parks, subterranean London, transport, annual events, law and order, crimes and criminals, institutions, recreation, occult London, a historical chronology of the city, a 1920s timeline by month, prices, how to get chloroform (or weapons, fireworks, or public records), how to send a letter or telegram, sample hotel and restaurant costs, a bibliography, an introductory scenario, and an index."

The New Orleans Guidebook
"New Orleans in the 1920’s is a city of many faces. The gaiety of Mardi Gras is juxtaposed with the rampant corruption that earned New Orleans the nickname 'The City That Care Forgot.' The genteel decline of the French Quarter, the location of the city’s original settlement, stands contrast to the rich opulence of the Garden District, where the Americans later built their mansions. Voodoo and Catholicism exist peacefully side by side. And beneath it all, the face of the Mythos can sometimes be glimpsed.
This guidebook includes detailed chapters on: the history of New Orleans, the French Quarter and the greater city, and the bayous and coastal area. A chapter on voodoo includes guidelines for integrating it into Call of Cthulhu, New occupations unique to the Crescent City and the area are suggested, and five secret societies are covered. A scenario designed to acquaint investigators with most of New Orleans' areas completes the book."

In the whole spectacle there was a persistent, pervasive hint of stupendous secrecy and potential revelation... I could not help feeling that they were evil things - mountains of madness whose farther slopes looked out over some accursed ultimate abyss." - H.P. Lovecraft

"This colossal volume combines both an epic adventure, based on Lovecraft's "At the Mountains of Madness" and a complete Antarctica sourcebook. The level of detail is extraordinary. Special investigator sheets are included, with stats specific to an Antarctic investigator.

Oh Boy! Make sure you are prepared before you embark on this adventure. "Beyond the Mountains of Madness" is an incredible investment in time and energy. The book assumes that the keeper has read and is familiar with both "At the Mountains of Madness" as well as Poe's "Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket." (As far as preparation goes, this is a joy. They are both great books, and should be read anyways.) It took our group about 5 months to complete, and we skipped several optional sections. The adventure takes place in several chapters, including preparing for the trip, the ocean trip to Antarctica, on Antarctica, and then the trip home.

The book is a challenge for both keepers and players. If done well, this will be one of your best adventures ever." ...from Amazon reviewer Zack Davisson

H.P. Lovecraft's Dunwich
"Dunwich is a small village located along the Miskatonic, upriver from Arkham. Until 1806, Dunwich was a thriving community, boasting many mills and the powerful Whateley family.
Those among the Whateleys came to know dark secrets about the world, and they fell into the worship of unwholesome creatures from other times and places. Retreating to the hills and forests surrounding the town, they betrayed their uncorrupted kin.

Prosperity fled, and a dark despair seized the people. What remains is a skeleton town, mills closed, its citizens without hope or future. However, secrets of the Mythos survive, to be discovered by brave and enterprising investigators.

H.P. Lovecraft's DUNWICH begins with "The Dunwich Horror," Lovecraft's masterful tale of life in the town and its surrounds. It expands upon the story with extensive information about the town: pertinent buildings, useful people, and important locations are described in detail. A 17x22" map depicts the area for miles around, and two scenarios are included. All statistics and gameplay notes for d20 Cthulhu are also provided.

* About 80 pages of informative guidebook for Dunwich and Dunwich's environs.
