Sorrow in Tsavo
Call of Cthulhu on Discord
About the adventure
Description: Tsavo translates to, "a place of slaughter." Welcome to Africa (1898). The British are building a railway bridge over the river Tsavo to connect worlds. Unfortunately, a pair of lions known as "The Ghost," and, "The Darkness," are stalking and brutally killing members of your crew. The leadership team must find a way to stop these man-eaters before the project is abandoned entirely.
How to prepare
This game will be run on Discord, audio only. Have an operable mic. Dice will be rolled on Discord. If you're looking to explore optional background setting, I'd recommend watching the movie "The Ghost and the Darkness." You may also read about the Tsavo man-eaters in Patterson's account: The Man-Eaters of Tsavo. Lastly, you can pop into the Chicago Field Museum to see them in person.

Pre-gens, maps, monster handouts and all visuals needed to run the game will be provided.
