History tells us that General Umberto Nobile and Roald Amundsen overflew the North Pole in 1926, making the first trans-polar flight from Europe to America. In 1928, Nobile went back in the Italia, which crashed on the ice north of Svalbard, Norway. An international rescue mission was launched to find him and his aeronauts. Your characters are part of this mission – and the State Department wants you to rescue the survivors before the Russian expedition gets them! But soon this humanitarian mission becomes embroiled in international tensions, mysterious disappearances, and the cold arcano-science of Yuggoth…
Set throughout the globe and torn from the pages of the hidden history of the world, Age of Cthulhu adventures bring new secrets and mind-bending horrors to your 1920’s Call of Cthulhu game. Each adventure comes with copious player handouts, detailed maps, and pre-generated investigators ready to risk their lives and their sanity to confront the horrors of an uncaring universe.
Age of Cthulhu adventures include many of the classic elements of Call of Cthulhu: action, investigation, and a forbidding sense of horror. Though the adventures utilize real locations and historical events, Age of Cthulhu is first and foremost dedicated to exploring the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos, and to bringing the excitement of heroic pulp-themed adventure to your gaming table. So dim the lights, load your trusty sidearm, and prepare to venture into the unknown…
