Mountains of Madness (Cthulhu RPG)

"Mountains of Madness" is an outstanding and epic campaign in the Cthulhu RPG universe. It has been translated, overworked and extended in cooperation with Charles Engang (the author of the original US version). The publisher Pegasus Press did again a great job in providing a high quality hardcover product - with an exciting storyline, good handouts and great artwork.

The Mountains of Madness are located in the Antarctic, and 1931 an expedition failed to discover them. It is told that the participants either died or went insane... Two years later another team (=YOU) starts with the goal to reach the Mountains of Madness and to reveal its secrets - which you can tell are deeply Cthulhu and endangering the whole world.

In the first book the expedition starts in New York, preparing for the big journey. But soon a saboteur is discovered, who seems to be part of a mysterious, second expedition? Which also heads to the Antarctic? Also the long journey on the ship bears lots of difficulties, not to speak of finally arriving in the Antarctic...

I'm really looking forward to the second book (out of three), which will be hopefully mentioned here soon.

Call of Cthulhu is a horror fiction role-playing game based on H. P. Lovecraft's story of the same name and the associated Cthulhu Mythos. [Wikipedia]
