Miskatonic Country, a buyer’s guide (pt. 4)Leave a comment
December 11, 2020 by Bret Kramer (aka WinstonP)
Today, in our penultimate installment, I wanted to look at a few final scenario and related resources we’ve not discussed in our previous entries –
The Unbound Book
The Unbound Book was a short-lived online-only publication that collected scenarios; in the course of 3 issues they had 4 scenarios with some connection to Miskatonic Country. They are archived on Yog-Sothoth.com and members of that site (which is free) may download them.
- His Wildest Dreams #0
- The Rise of Xnaaki #0 (this one nominally begins in Arkham but quickly relocates to a New Hampshire valley invented for the scenario.)
- What Goes Around #0
- Dark Dreams of Innsmouth #2
Dateline Lovecraft scenarios
Dean Engelhardt (via his imprint Cthulhu Reborn) has produced a series of scenarios connected to his prop newspaper “Dateline Lovecraft” (see our next entry more information). The scenarios may be purchased on DriveThruRPG on a pay-what-you-want basis as generic “D100” rules or downloaded freely stated for the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition on his site HERE. So far they have released four scenarios.
The last scenario listed is actually for their line Convicts and Cthulhu, which is their colonial Australian setting (all set in the very late 18th century or early 19th), as the scenario involves a whaler from Kingsport and might be of interest.
- Help Wanted
- Smoke Green
- Spoiled Milk
- Bottom’s Up
- Hark Now Hear the Sailors Cry
Odds & Ends
Spirits Over Arkham. This scenario was self-published in the UK in 1987 (without a license from Chaosium); considering it was written before Arkham Unveiled was published, there isn’t much Arkham-specific content in the scenario, but I’m including it here for completeness. (There are gargoyles is that’s important to you.) Yog-sothoth.com members can download a copy from that site.
Sometimes there is content connected to Miskatonic Country that is not a scenario per se, but still of potential interest to Keepers. I suspect I’ve missed several items and will update if I locate more. (Most of our journal The Arkham Gazette is this sort of material – take a look at our index of Arkham Gazette Articles for more details.)
- Dollars of Dagon – Unspeakable Oath 19
- Atlas of Arkham 1911 – Unspeakable Oath 22
- The Cat Council of Kingsport – Tails of Valor
