About the adventure

A cold and harsh chill runs up your spine as you touch the mysterious book labeled The King in Yellow. You tremble in a cold sweat as you open the front cover, expecting blasphemous inscriptions or mind bending recounts of horrors just beyond the veil. But as you read the first few pages, you realize that the rumors are in fact false: there are no formulas to arcane magic too horrible for any normal human to comprehend, nor are there tellings of mind shattering creatures roaming in the dark. Instead there’s only poems, beautiful ones at that. Then you see it appear out of thin air in front of you: a being with no face, twice as tall as a man and adorned in fantastically colored robes. It looks like a man… but by time you realize that this is no man, it is already too late. ABOUT THE GROUP: Call of Cthulhu Weekly is a dedicated group of experienced and new players that all enjoy the dream like world created by H.P. Lovecraft and fellow authors and artists. We aim to play a new one shot or mini campaign every week with a more drop in/drop out method of filling seats. Everything from Pulp Cthulhu to a more sinister and deadly set of house rules are on the table. So if there ever a time to try out a new game: now's the time! If you need more information on Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, check out the landing page. I wrote the article and edited the video! Link: https://startplaying.games/play/call-of-cthulhu

Additional Details

How to prepare

Have an open mind and to be ready for lots of Role Playing, as Call of Cthulhu is a immersion based game that thrives off of Role Playing. We use mics over Discord but cameras are optional.

What I provide

On Fantasy Grounds I have: Call of Cthulhu 7E (Ruleset) Investigator Handbook Masks of Nyarlathotep Pulp Cthulhu (7th edition Call of Cthulhu) S.Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors (CoC7E) The Derelict and The Haunting Investigations The Grand Grimoire of Cthulhu Mythos Magic Cthulhu himself. Fantasy grounds has nearly everything involved (from character sheets to spells) automated, allowing for a much smoother experience and far less math than normal. Once set up in Fantasy Grounds, character maintenance is easy and quick.

Gameplay details

This is a Call of Cthulhu game, so extreme violence, gore, horror, and things beyond imagination are to be expected. This game takes place in the 1920's with a more leanet take on racism sexism, etc. (Certain words won't be said, but predigest will be expressed) This is for the sake of storytelling and does not reflect the viewpoints of the DM (aka me) or the players involved.
