About the adventure

Doors To Darkness provides five scenarios written especially for beginning Keepers and players of Call of Cthulhu. Here you will find horror, mystery, investigation, ghastly monsters, strange magics, and forgotten secrets, as well as plenty of advice about how to run the adventures for best effect. As well as the scenarios, an essay by Kevin Ross details a wide range of hints and tips on running Call of Cthulhu - guidance any Keeper, new or experienced, will find very useful. The Darkness Beneath The Hill - A friend’s house renovation project leads to unexpected discoveries in Providence, Rhode Island. Genius Loci - Not all is well at Danvers State Lunatic Asylum and it’s down to the investigators to heed a friend in need’s cry. Servants Of The Lake - The hunt for a missing person reveals ancient secrets in the wilds north of Kingsport. Ties That Bind - Strange rock formations have been found in Mrs. Carrington’s prized fountain. But these are like no rocks seen before! None More Black - The death of a Miskatonic University student leads the investigators into unsavory neighborhoods and dark business dealings. All are set in the 1920's, and may be used in other eras as well. My name is Anna and I'm a professional DM.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You need to have discord installed and a browser with roll20. No need to create characters or have any knowledge of the system or Lovecraftian mythos.

What I provide

I actually know most of the oneshots from Doors to Darkness by heart. You could wake me up in the middle of the night and I would tell you the NPC names. I also have knowledge of how to play the system.

Gameplay details

Combat in Call of Cthulhu is optional. The scenarios differ from each other, some are more puply, others more detective work oriented. I require no knowledge of the system.
