This adventure for the CoC rpg is well worth buying for any keeper looking for a new adventure to subject his investigators to.
Right from the start this title captures the dark horror that H.P.Lovecraft is known for, and things only get better (or worse depending on how you look at it) as the adventure progresses.
Spanning several continents this book provides players with people's and areas they may have never encountered before, and after this adventure may never want to again.
For the experienced CoC player, or the total novice, this title is well worth investing in.

A Globe-Trotting Adventure for the 1920s! 9 Jun. 2009
By Nekona Hisaki - Published on
Currently I'm playing in this campaign with a group and I have to say I love it. It will take you all around the world, and possibly even out of it. The only quibble is if you have very enthusiastic players who arrive early for events you may have some breaking potential as happened with our group. However that can be easily fixed with a little efforto n the part of the Keeper. Two tentacles way way up. :)

A classic 2 Jun. 2000
By M. Salazar - Published on
Keith Herber put astonishingly ghastly deeds to paper when he spun this tale of unrelenting horror. Your players will fall giggling at your feet and you will reap your own rewards for playing out this classic of horror roleplaying. I put it up next to my copy of "Masks of Nyarlathotep" as one of the best campaigns for CoC because of its expansiveness, but what makes it better than MoN is it's compactness and straightforwardness. For beginning Basic Role-playing, GURPS, or D20 rules Keepers, it provides the kind of structure and intuitive "yeah that makes sense" momentum that holds excitement for players without railroading them. There are deadly episodes and encounters, which is to be expected, but a Keeper can easily reduce/increase the threat level to the players. The art is from the classic era of Chaosium and feature's very competent pencils of their in-house artist at the time. The handouts are readable and easily photocopied. If you are looking for something to kick off your 1920's era campaign, start here!

Hospital killer 24 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book is some what good, if you're in coma.I was in ahospital room doing this campaign with an injured friend. The guyacross from us was in a coma and he got out of it to tell us that thebook was horrible, then he died from boredom. So if you plan on getting this don't play in a hospital. Only play it in a mental hospital where people are insane anyways. ...the story reminds me of The Lion King. I f you actually play this and retain your sanity then I commend you for your superior mind.
