About The Curse of Nineveh
In ancient times, when the city of Nineveh fell, so too was a terrible evil was banished. This evil, a god named Nabu with ambitions to rule humanity, was bound by the Children of Tranquillity into his former temple and buried beneath the sands. Two and a half thousand years later a group of archaeologists uncovered the Temple of Nabu and unleashed a terrible curse – the Curse of Nineveh!
The Curse of Nineveh is a new seven-part Call of Cthulhu 7th edition campaign set in London in the summer of 1925. 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!

About The Journal of Neve Selcibuc
"I write this after a night of very little sleep. So many unanswered questions made it difficult to settle. Once I had fallen asleep my dreams took me back to the night Alice died in my room and I lived again the blue flames that took my cousin away before I woke covered in sweat and terrified. I tossed and turned and tried to get back to sleep but something else had begun nagging at me. Turning over in my mind the events of the last day at Boughton Court I realised that one more thing didn’t make sense."
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.
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 Ninevehcampaign.
The Journal of Neve Selcibuc is a 64-page, hardback, digest-sized book written by Paula Dempsey.
The Journal of Neve Selcibuc is also available as a PDF from DriveThruRPG. It is available in US and UK stores now, with the rest of the world following shortly.
About The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson
"Within the inner sanctum, the central altar had been moved across the dais, and there were signs of excavations all around it. The sound of the muttering continued as if our intrusion had gone unnoticed, and it came from behind the altar. Upon investigating, we were all seized with an unimaginable terror."
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.
