About the adventure

The year is 1923, the place is Arkham. As mysterious figures go, Edgar Carver was as closeted and odd as any. However, when he realized he was about to reach the end of his life, he decided to invite six different people from all over the country to share his fortune. These people may seem randomly selected to most, but Edgar knew them all by heart. Lured by the promise of money, what mysteries and horrors await our adventurers? Will they be able to make it out alive to spend their share or will they meet a dark and horrible end? This is a Call of Cthulhu one-shot with 6 pre-made characters. The players will get to pick and choose which character they wish to play and will be given short descriptions about how to play as them. This game is completely beginner friendly, you do not even have to know how to play ttrpgs, let alone Call of Cthulhu. Content Warnings: Violence, Horror, Addiction, Grief.

Additional Details

How to prepare

All you need is a camera, a mic and your imagination. Pen and paper would help you out with keeping track of what's going on but they are not a necessity. We will be rolling dice, you can either bring your own or use an app or I can roll for you if you wish. However, I'd recommend rolling your own dice since it's fun!

What I provide

I shall be bringing character sheets and descriptions as PDF files. I'll also provide other digital hand-outs throughout the game.
