The Tatterdemalion King - Art meets madness!!!

Call of Cthulhu on Fantasy Grounds

Call of Cthulhu

Fantasy Grounds

About the adventure

It is the 1920's and you have found yourself in a somewhat tentative position within the artistic and eccentric crowd in New York, so it is not without some expectation that you would be invited to dinner parties for the sole purpose of networking and carousing amongst the elite who have little to no care about the laws of prohibition. It is however with some surprise that you receive an invitation from a notorious playwright by the name of Anthony Abbot Cabot Carmichael to a masked costume ball followed by a gala supper where his latest work will be premiered. This is a Call of Cthulhu one-shot that will include extreme horror and very adult premises and scenes. It is a module that premiered in my hometown of Melbourne at a convention back in the '80's and has aged like a fine wine.
