About the adventure

This is 1921. Augustus Larkin claims that he learned some knowledge about ancient pyramids in Peru, and now he's looking for some passionate people to gather up an expedition group. Academics, doctors, adventurers and many more have heard the call-to-action! Are you ready to unearth the forgotten truth about the world's history? Are you ready to save the world from the inevitable? If your answer is YES, then you should join this game! • The game is beginner friendly, so, if you want to learn Call of Cthulhu, you're very welcome! • The game sets in 1921 as prologue, and after that, continues in 1925 after the events in Peru. • The investigators (PCs) will need to travel from America to England, Egypt, Kenya, Australia and China to prevent the destruction of the world. • The game has action, but it's heavy on mystery and investigation.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You can read some Lovecraft stories, or watch related movies. Having a working microphone and webcam is mandatory. Webcam is not extremely required but it's always good to see each other's faces. Having Spotify Premium account would be a bonus. I use Discord's "listen together" feature for background music.

What I provide

I will bring eldritch chaos, Fantasy Grounds environment and creepy playlists

Gameplay details

I'll try to keep combats as simple as possible. Investigation, roleplay and asking the right questions are more important than other things. We will do a session 0 for creating characters. If the characters are ready in the session, we can jump into the story if we have enough time for it.

How will character creation work

We will create the characters in the session 0, talking to each other. A character creation process is an individual process, but we need the synergy for creating a headstart story. Also, we will talk about the game rules, as well.

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Low
  • Roleplay: High
