About the adventure

"We should never have taken that cursed artifact," said Smith, his voice low and strained. "It's brought nothing but trouble." "Perhaps," replied Akhmed, his voice calm and measured. "But the knowledge we've gained from it is invaluable. And we can't let the others have died in vain..." ********** Beneath the façade of our mundane world lies a sinister truth: ancient, malevolent entities lurk in the shadows, waiting to unleash their horror upon an unsuspecting humanity. And now, the call has come for a new generation of investigators to face the ultimate challenge in the world of tabletop RPGs. Join the legendary campaign for Call of Cthulhu - Masks of Nyarlathotep.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Ideally, having some idea of the themes and feel of CoC would be great, but it is by no means required. The only required things are as follows: 1. A microphone 2. A stable internet connection (hey, we know internet gets spotty sometimes, I really just mean no one with dial up or anything like that) 3. A willingness to have fun and be a team player! This is the most important one, since we're all here to have fun.

What I provide

Since it is a virtual game, you don't need to bring anything. Depending on the VTT, you might need to download a (free) version of the VTT, and we can make sure everyone is familiar with it before moving on.

Gameplay details

Call of Cthulhu is a fairly simple game whose rules don't often get in the way of the action. Never played it? No worries! After even just one session, you'll have the hang of it.

How will character creation work

We will do a session zero, where we will go over the VTT if needed, as well as talk as a group about what kind of characters we are all wanting to play. It'll be a chill time, getting to know one another, and getting a glimpse of what the campaign has in store.
