Description: The Horned Man Will Live...
A gentle breeze wafts across Platform Five of Twyford Station. You wait for the ten o'clock train for Henley-on-Thames, for soon the Henley Royal Regatta begins. Attending the regatta is in high fashion, and patronized by royalty. Not only tremendously entertaining, the regatta is an important meeting-place of contacts, both business and casual.
The train arrives bearing a single first-class car, as usual for runs during the regatta. Everyone files aboard, taking their seats, and the journey begins. Clacking rails pass below. A tunnel approaches, quiet darkness falls, and two men die.
Dark Designs contains three adventures for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. All are set in southern England, and involve occult practices in the 1890s. Two of the adventures can be linked to form a mini-campaign, the third is suitable for new investigators and beginning players. Background information about the 1890s, including a character-generation synopsis and investigator sheet, is included in this book. Enterprising keepers might refer to Chaosium's Cthulhu By Gaslight supplement, containing extensive information about this period. You do not need Cthulhu By Gaslight to fully enjoy Dark Designs.
This adventure book is designed for use with the Call of Cthulhu horror role-playing game based in H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. Copyright 1991 Chaosium Inc.
