Three Cthulhu Dark Ages
This monograph constitutes Chaosium's first GenCon tournament for Cthulhu Dark Ages. The staffers chose the Latin name, which translates to "the approaching darkness". It also makes for a nifty acronym that fits in well with the Lovecraft Mythos.
The first scenario, Island of the Damned takes tough-as-nails Viking characters completely out of their element. Vikings were the scourge of the Dark Ages and here, predator becomes prey.
The second scenario, Risam Vellere concerns early attempts at translating one of the forbidden tomes of the Mythos.
The third scenario, The Innocent is the more human story of a victim of the Mythos who holds no culpability in his fate nor escape from his destiny.
A feature of this monograph are the prepared handouts, and the pre-generated Dark Ages investigators. This is a great way to give Cthulhu Dark Ages a try.
MONOGRAPHS are longer works by one or more authors on a subject of import to Call of Cthulhu roleplayers. On these products the author has also fulfilled the functions of editor and layout artist; we at Chaosium have done little in the way of editorial. We do provide a cover illustration. We found these works compelling and thought that you would enjoy them. Through the publication of monographs we can offer our most loyal fans more information more easily, and evaluate the potential of these works for eventual release to the wholesale market.
