Beware the Burrowers Beneath!

By Published On: June 15, 2011

From Chaosium’s ageless vaults comes a whisper from the past.

Curse of the Chthonians
FOUR ODYSSEYS INTO DEADLY INTRIGUE—Things aren’t always as they seem. Is the little Rhode Island carnival just a place of innocent playfulness, or does it house dark secrets? Is the newest exhibit at the Museum of Natural History a crude representation of an elephant, or is it a thing from out of the depths of time? Who would kill for a ceremonial dagger? What mere vision is powerful enough to kill a wizened rabbi?

Curse of the Chthonians contains four detailed scenarios for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, plus an examination of the Kabbalistic science of Gematria—which seeks to derive secret or mystical meaning from the very letters that form the words of Scripture and occult texts.

This is a second edition of a book of deadly adventures originally released in 1981 and never reprinted. We resurrected the text and added art and page decoration. Here is the CURSE OF THE CHTHONIANS PDF version.

Blood & Badges
The year is 1855. Perfection is a small gold-mining town located on the east side of the Rocky Mountains, in the Kansas Territories. The state of Colorado has not yet been established. The impetuous daughter of a rail-baron left home to experience the Western Frontier. For three months there has been no word from her. Pinkerton Agents are now on the case, hired to find Victoria Featherstone amid the unknown dangers of the Wild West.

This is one of eight Basic Roleplaying adventures, winners of the Chaosium BRP Adventure Contest.

The Legacy of Arrius Lurco is a full four-part campaign for Cthulhu Invictus, set in Rome, Achaea (Greece) and Cyrenaica (Crete). The campaign features new professions, cults and secret societies, monsters, spells, weapons, poisons, alien technologies, and mythos tomes. An epic adventure filled with mystery and horror, hope and betrayal, action and intrigue is about to begin.

Black Bag Jobs contains six self-contained missions for your Laundry campaign. From the war-torn hillsides of Afghanistan to the corridors of power in Whitehall, from yoga lessons in Devon to the end of the world, it’s time to break in and steal the secrets of reality.

In Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game, players take the roles of investigators, villians, and unspeakable horrors inspired by the dark mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. Agency detectives, Miskatonic University students and faculty, and the members of the mysterious Syndicate all join the fight against other-worldly beings including Cthulhu, Hastur, Yog-Sothoth, and Shub Niggurath.

We just received a corpulent array of supplements for the core game, including the new The Order of the Silver Twilight expansion.
