It seemed appropriate to have an adventure out in time for Halloween. I didn’t want to constrain myself to a Halloween specific theme – I just wanted to write something suitable for a session of play to serve as quick horror fodder or an introduction to The Cthulhu Hack.
Save Innsmouth is that adventure – to be released at Spiel tomorrow and RPGNow / DriveThruRPG from Friday, 14 October.
You’re all students at Arkham’s renowned Miskatonic University. Between terms, you’re taking the opportunity to go hiking. You’ve taken an interest in the newspaper and local TV reports of construction in the north-east, along the coast, that will see a piece of history, a town preserved since Prohibition times, bulldozed to make way for a luxury health spa resort. This will be the last chance to see the place intact before The Man clears away another chunk of America’s heritage in the name of progress.
This Cthulhu Hack adventure is designed as a stand-alone scenario and can be run as a one-shot adventure over a single sitting from three to four hours of real time.
And… It’s just Chapter 0 of an adventure campaign coming out in 2017.
