It’s no longer quiet on the Western Front. An ancient horror is stirring and something dark walks the halls of Hospital Number Five. Bullet-ridden, bruised and bloody, the Investigators, soldiers and nurses in the Great War, are brought from the fontline to Military Hospital Number Five. Haggard staff make their rounds, the doctors experiment after dark with electro-shock therapy, gaunt nurses give unlabelled and unknown drugs. Patients are dying by the dozen when they once seemed to be on the road to recovery. Something is wrong. Once the haze of morphine clears, it does not take long for the Investigators to realise that a malevolence hangs over this hospital. They must overcome forces beyond human comprehension to save the pitiful few they can. Some, however, may not want to be saved. The Investigators will quickly discover that there are worse things in this life than a bullet wound. Not So Quiet is by Adam Gauntlett (Hell Fire, Not So Quiet, RMS Titantic: The Millionaire’s Special, Flying Coffins) and has now been published alongside The Big Hoodoo, Castle Bravo, and The Black Drop in the Out of Time anthology, available in our webstore.

There are monsters beneath the earth. You cannot fight them. You cannot run from them. And they are closer than you think. In a forgotten corner of Northern England, between the rolling hills and tranquil dales nestles a village plagued by terrible secrets and subterranean horrors. Every 119 years the village of Manesty is torn apart, its inhabitants massacred. It happened in 1697. It happened in 1816. Now it’s 1935 and horrific events have been set in motion. Swimming through the soil beneath the village are loathsome creatures waiting, impatiently, to rise above the earth and reclaim the land they believe is theirs and kill anyone who stands in their way, including the Investigators. However, as with all the best Mythos adventures, not all is as it seems. The Investigators must uncover the mystery that has killed many and doomed others in the tiny village while struggling to keep their lives and the last vestiges of their sanity intact. The Dance in the Blood is the third Purist scenario for Trail of Cthulhu from author Graham Walmsley, and is now available in print and PDF format in the collection The Final Revelation.   Stock #: PELGT14D Author: Graham Walmsley Artist: […]

The Black Drop is a one-shot adventure for Trail of Cthulhu written by Jason Morningstar, the award-winning designer of Shab-al-Hiri Roach and Fiasco. Something slowly gathers strength beneath the frozen basalt of the remote Kerguelen archipelago – a monstrous thing once worshipped and then betrayed, a terrible god from the antediluvian past. Its time has come again, and mysterious forces gather. Will the Investigators usher in its rebirth – or put an end to it forever? Although it could swing toward the pulp end of things, there’s plenty of windswept nihilism and reliably cosmic horror for any Purist. Adjusted by the Keeper to taste, it will work well for either style. It features pregenerated characters and extensive handouts. The Black Drop has now been published alongside The Big Hoodoo, Castle Bravo, and Not So Quiet in the Out of Time anthology, available in our webstore. Dan Harms reviews The Black Drop: Overall, the Black Drop is a fantastic scenario and one of the strongest scenarios in the Trail line – which, in turn, makes it one of the strongest Cthulhoid RPG scenarios published in recent times. As always, it’s worth getting even if you play Call of Cthulhu instead of Trail, so you […]

Watchers in the Sky

Your friends cannot be trusted, your knowledge means nothing, and everything you hold dear turns to dust. Blending Lovecraft with Hitchcock, The Watchers In The Sky is the second Purist adventure for Trail of Cthulhu from Graham Walmsley. A madman feeds the birds, paranoid they are watching him. Later, the same strange birds stare from the rooftops, warping the laws of physics and chemistry. And, when the Investigators dissect one of the creatures, they find something monstrous inside. The Watchers introduces a new and unknowable Mythos entity. Written in the Purist style, there is no glory in fighting the Mythos, only madness and despair. The more you discover, the more the Mythos infects your mind.  It will also destroy your family, your friends and everyone you love. The Watchers is a must for Keepers who like their fun bleak! Playtesters’ comments: “Our group had a blast playtesting the scenario! It’s truly creepy, and I was inspired enough by the material to improvise a truly horrific ending for the investigators. We still talk and laugh about it!” “Our group really had a good time with the Drive Yourself Crazy rules … This really lent an element of player involvement that seems […]

Now a Silver ENnie award winner and Golden Geek award nominee. Formless Fears! The Armitage Files presents a boldly innovative way to generate blood-chilling adventures for your Trail Of Cthulhu investigators. Players seize on clues presented in the ten mysterious documents. They choose which leads to track down. The Keeper, using clearly broken down step-by-step techniques introduced in this volume, improvises suitably mind-blasting mysteries in response to their choices. Weave these together into an epic campaign of madness, dread and danger. Terror Between the Lines! Mystery takes on written form when pages from a disturbing manuscript fall into the investigators’ hands. Can your mind correlate the awful beauty of 10 stunningly distressed handouts realized by acclaimed illustrator Sarah Wroot? A series of scrawled messages, comprising a free-floating cacophony of facts, speculations, and fevered imaginings, portends cryptic doom. Preliminary inquiries reveal that they are written in the hand of Dr. Henry Armitage, director emeritus of the Miskatonic University Library. Components of Calamity! Combine the documents with pre-prepared elements such as supporting characters (in sinister, heroic or in between versions), organizations, locations and artifacts to create your unique version of the Armitage Files. An article on improvising GUMSHOE, by Steve Dempsey, shows […]
