Dan Harms reviews Graham Walmsley’s Trail of Cthulhu adventure The Rending Box.

…another excellent contribution to the Trail of Cthulhu line.


Nominated for Best Adventure in the 2012 ENnie awards

In an antiques shop in North London, there is a box. Inside the box is an ancient creature, seeping through into the world. It will show the Investigators the universe as it really is.

The Rending Box is the final Purist adventure for Trail of Cthulhu. The previous scenarios, The Dying of St Margaret’s, The Watchers in the Sky and The Dance In The Blood have hinted about an immense, fecund creature, spawning beneath the soil of the Lake District.

This is the fourth and final installment of Graham Walmsley’s Purist Adventure series for Trail of Cthulhu, and is now available in print and PDF format in the collection The Final Revelation.
