One of them waits only for a chance to finish the job, uncovering a secret which the Terra Nova has kept hidden for decades.

Eternal Lies

System: Trail of Cthulhu

Number of Sessions: 3 or more

Last Delivery Date: 1st December

Short Description: Now, you must piece together what went wrong. Investigate ancient crypts, abandoned estates, and festering slums. Explore choked jungles and the crushed psyches of your predecessors. Follow in their footprints and make new ones of your own. This time, there won’t be another chance.

We have playtesters for Eternal Lies, but because it’s such a mammoth game it’s taking a long time to get into the later chapters, and we are looking for brave Investigators willing to accept the challenge of leaping into Act 2 and 3. We’ll send you a summary of what’s happened to the point at which you start. You can playtest one or more chapters, each one is 3 or so sessions. Email, stating the number of chapters you want to run.
