FIVE SCENARIOS FOR BEGINNING KEEPERS

Doors to Darkness provides five scenarios written especially for beginning Keepers and players of Call of Cthulhu. Here you will find horror, mystery, investigation, ghastly monsters, strange magics, and forgotten secrets, as well as plenty of advice about how to run the adventures for best effect.

As well as the scenarios, an essay by Kevin Ross details a wide range of hints and tips on running Call of Cthulhu – guidance any Keeper, new or experienced, will find very useful.

The Darkness Beneath the Hill – A friend's house renovation project leads to unexpected discoveries in Providence, Rhode Island.

Genius Loci – Not all is well at Danvers State Lunatic Asylum and it's down to the investigators to heed a friend in need's cry.

Servants of the Lake – The hunt for a missing person reveals ancient secrets in the wilds north of Kingsport.

Ties That Bind – Strange rock formations have been found in Mrs. Carrington's prized fountain. But these are like no rocks seen before!

None More Black – The death of a Miskatonic University student leads the investigators into unsavoury neighbourhoods and dark business dealings.

Also included are ten diverse and ready-to-play investigators, allowing players to dive straight into the mysteries contained within Doors to Darkness. Lastly, just because these scenarios are written with new players in mind, don't expect them to be a walk in the park! Those who dare to open the doors to darkness will discover just what secrets and dangers lie within!

Customer Reviews

Good for maybe not complete beginners

Reviewed by on

I found that it is a high quality product, but I did see a few typos. It has good art and has an attached ribbon bookmark. Although it is marketed towards beginner Keepers, the scenarios don't really hold your hand and does need some preparation to run. I would read through them first and make some notes, and maybe scan/ printout any maps and handouts that appear inside the book. So even though they seem to be easier scenarios, I don't feel that it's meant for complete beginner Keepers. It does reference to some rules in the Main Keepers Rulebook, so owning one will help, but I've only read the free Quickstart 7th edition rules pdf myself and feel that it is enough. Overall I think it is a good product that has the potential for hours of fun.
