About the adventure

"Terror is nothing else than justice, prompt, severe, inflexible.” ― Maximilien Robespierre A time of struggle, intrigue, and horror. A divided country, where the upper class enjoys the bounty of wealth, and the poor cannot afford a loaf of bread. Where the cries of anger and rage at life’s injustices find momentum, sparking the people to unite and cast away the old regime for a brighter and more hopeful tomorrow. In time, hope will be replaced with fear as The Terror descends upon France, and the guillotine cries out for blood. All of this before you add the Mythos into the mix. Reign of Terror is a Cthulhu adventure that spans the French revolution using seventh edition Cthulhu mechanics. Its traditional handled in 3 sessions spanning the French Revolution. Characters are provided for the module and no experience is necessary so its a good start for anyone interested in trying out Cthulhu or who enjoy a good horror story. The module contains adult subject matter, horror, and inappropriate behavior. Viewer Discretion is advised. If there are any particular issues with any subject matter, please let me know in advance. Part One, set in 1789 amid the stirrings of the revolution, sees the investigators descend into the catacombs of Paris and brave the tribulations of courtly life, where debauchery and wickedness bring there own terrors. Part Two, covers the events during the revolution as the investors are swept up by the wave of history. Part Three, set during The Reign of Terror, catapults the investigators into a conspiracy, where spies and agents seek out those who would destabilize the new regime. Caught among the chaos and dangers of Paris, the way must be found to stop a nightmare that would plunge France and the rest of Europe into darkness.
