Call of Cthulhu on Discord, Roll20
Call of Cthulhu
About the adventure
August 25th, 1928: Providence, Rhode Island. The Milton Hotel cordially invites you to view the fantastical traveling exhibition “The Kingdom of Fire—Egypt’s 18th Dynasty.” All the way from the British Museum, London, England, come see these wonders of ancient Egypt, rare and priceless items from a time long ago. Learn about their history from Dr. Caitlin Bronson, the exhibition’s curator, who will be on hand to answer all of your questions. Marvel at the treasures of Tutankhamun and Hatshepsut, along with the star of the exhibition, the mysterious canopic jar of Ibnhotep the Mad! Tickets are limited and going fast—and you don’t want to miss out on what promises to be the most talked about exhibition of the year! In this scenario for Call of Cthulhu 7e, you play investigators visiting an exhibition of ancient artifacts. Of course, you aren't the only ones here to see the exhibition, and these artifacts may hold more than they seem... [This game is for players 18+! Please do not apply if you are under 18.
