Cthulhu Britannica: London Boxed Set

London in the 1920s is the greatest city in the world, a vibrant melting pot of history and culture at the heart of the British Empire. But underneath the powerhouse of the City lie millennia of history, from the well-documented paths of Roman Londinium to darker antediluvian secrets veiled from modern eyes. London sits atop its history: an ancient swampland that was itself once an even-more-ancient sea-bed. Who knows what secrets lie buried?

The Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set is the ultimate guide to running games of Call of Cthulhu set in London. ThePDF version is available now, and the physical edition (available to preorder at our webstore now) is on its way to our warehouse now.

Cthulhu Britannica: London comprises three books: The Investigator's Guide to London, The Keeper's Guide to London and Adventures in Mythos London.

The Investigator’s Guide to London is a comprehensive guide to the capital in the 1920s. It contains, amongst other things, information on public transport, the bustling party scene, the people and a whole lot about the places investigators might go in the course of your adventures. Great for both players and Keepers alike, and packed full of maps and beautiful artwork.

Secondly is the Keeper’s Guide to London, which is strictly for the Keeper’s eyes only! This book is jammed full of ideas for running Call of Cthulhu adventures set in London, including new cults and Mythos threats, advice for capturing the unique feel of the city, a ready-made private club devoted to investigating the weird and wonderful, and a whole swathe of NPCs and plot hooks that you can use in your own games.

The final book is Adventures in Mythos London, which includes three complete, standalone adventures set in the capital city: Terror on the Thames, by Peter Wright, which has the investigators caught up in a night to remember on a boat trip down the river; Those Poor Souls Who Dwell in Light, by Call of Cthulhu7thedition author Paul Fricker, which concerns the sins of Reverend Leigh, a vicar who has come into possession of a potent artefact; and The Non-Euclidean Gate, by Mark A. Latham, which is all about what happens when seven pages from one of John Dee’s notebooks turns up unexpectedly on the open market.

But that’s not all that will be included in the boxed set: we also have six sheets of beautifully designed handouts for you to use in your games (in the physical edition these will be die-cut - you'll have to print and cut them out for yourself in the PDF edition). Some of these are taken from the scenarios in Adventures in Mythos London, others completely new to inspire your own scenarios.

The physical boxed set also contains four poster maps, including a beautifully illustrated Macdonald Gill map of Central London - these are included at screen resolution in the PDF version.

The Curse of Nineveh

The Curse of Nineveh cover550

The Curse of Nineveh is a new seven-part Call of Cthulhu 7th edition campaign set in London in the summer of 1925. It is designed to use the setting material found in the Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set, allowing you to combine the two to really bring London to life for your investigators.

In The Curse of Nineveh, the investigators find themselves embroiled in the events that surround the return of the expedition from Nineveh and the terrible curse that they brought back with them. They must face shadowy watchers, a nefarious criminal mastermind and race against time to stop an ancient plan from being fulfilled – a plan that threatens not only London, but the whole British empire!

The Curse of Nineveh is available to preorder at our webstore now. All pre-orders come with a complementary PDF of the supplement.  Pre-orders at participating Bits & Mortar stores are also eligible for a free PDF version. The Curse of Nineveh is also available as a PDF from RPGNow.

The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson

CB7359CampbellsJournal550

The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson is a thrilling standalone work of Call of Cthulhu fiction as well as a deluxe, in-world artefact for use with the London-based The Curse of Nineveh campaign.

Nineveh! Most populous and ancient city of the Assyrian Empire of antiquity. Ringed by great walls and vast gates, filled with forgotten treasures, mysterious carvings and great libraries of tablets. All lost to the modern world.

In 1903 British archaeologist Reginald Campbell Thompson set out to locate the site of ancient Nineveh. This expedition was widely and erroneously reported as a failure. His 1919 return to Nineveh and the temple of Nabu went entirely undocumented, until the discovery of this journal. Thompson, ever the adventurous academic, sought to unlock the temple's secrets. Secrets that should have remained hidden in the Assyrian desert.

The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson is a 64-page, hardback, digest-sized book written by Mark A. Latham. All copies of The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson come with a complementary PDF of the supplement.  Pre-orders at participating Bits & Mortar stores are also eligible for a free PDF version. It is also available as a PDF from DriveThruRPG.

The Journal of Neve Selcibuc

CB7358NevesJournal550

As part of Cubicle 7’s Cthulhu Britannica line The Journal of Neve Selcibuc is both a fascinating standalone work of Call of Cthulhu fiction as well as a deluxe, in-world artefact for use with the London-based The Curse of Nineveh campaign.

London! The greatest city in the world, home to four million people. A thriving hub of trade and industry, the first city of a fading Empire. The final resting place for treasures from across the globe, a labyrinth of imposing white marble streets and a warren of darker alleyways, all sat atop millennia of history.

A young American investigator is thrown into a maelstrom of kidnap, murder, spontaneous human combustion, and something all together darker. Neve Selcibuc must use every ounce of wit to solve a terrifying mystery that spans the length of the British Isles from London to Aberdeenshire.

The Journal of Neve Selcibuc is a 64-page, hardback, digest-sized book written by Paula Dempsey. All copies of The Journal of Neve Selcibuc come with a complementary PDF of the supplement.  Pre-orders at participating Bits & Mortar stores are also eligible for a free PDF version. It is also available as a PDF from DriveThruRPG.
