About the adventure

In a quiet valley, somewhere in the north of England, a film crew has begun to work on a documentary following the jobs of cleaning crew. Their newest job is in the town of Muscoby, where the local rat catcher has been hospitalized and the cleaners are tasked with the job of cleaning up the old man's cottage. However, as you may discover, things are never fully as they seem... "Scritch Scratch" is a modern-day scenario using the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition rules.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need Discord (either on mobile or a computer), a Roll20 account, and a working microphone. You do not need any experience with the Call of Cthulhu system, and some experience with Roll20 is welcome but not needed! You also do not need to bring your own dice, as we will be using Roll20 for rolls.

What I provide

I will bring my knowledge of the Call of Cthulhu system and my experience with Roll20. The Roll20 game will feature handouts and maps as needed. As this is a digital game, there will be no physical mementos.
