About the adventure

"It is true that I have sent six bullets through the head of my best friend, and yet I hope to shew by this statement that I am not his murderer." - H.P. Lovecraft, The Thing on the Doorstep Welcome to 1920's Boston where you are about to take a job investigating the old Corbitt House and determine if the rumors of it being haunted are true....The supernatural does exist and you are about to learn more than you ever wanted to know about the things which go bump in the night. The Call of Cthulhu role playing game is based on the dark, masterpieces of H.P. Lovecraft. I aim to bring the same feeling of foreboding and dread that comes from the original stories. "The Haunting" is a starter adventure for both player and game master alike for the Call of Cthulhu role playing game. This one shot adventure contains all the starter rules for those not familiar with the game and it's mechanics. Pre-generated characters will be available for those who want to try out the game without learning about character creation. The game will use Roll20 for a virtual tabletop and Discord for voice.
