It’s Halloween this coming Friday, and that traditionally means we’ll be getting together with our friends to eat sweets, do awful zombie impressions and play a horror-themed game to scare ourselves witless.
There’s been a Halloween Sale on all week over at DriveThruRPG, and you can grab yourselves a ghoulish bargain on some of our scariest PDFs - but be quick, as it ends today! In today's blog post we take a look at one of those PDFs, Cthulhu Britannica: Avalon - The County of Somerset.
Cthulhu Britannica: Avalon - The County of Somerset
The county of Somerset lies in the English West Country, a green and pleasant land steeped in millennia of history, folklore, and superstition, often overlooked as a rural backwater good for nothing but strong cider and tall tales. Yet something powerful and ancient is stirring in the county's hills and valleys, and mysterious lights flicker by night on the slopes of Glastonbury Tor, rising like a beacon from the marshes of the Somerset Levels. Old even before the heavy tread of Roman sandals pushed back the darkness, strange blood has flowed through the families of Somerset since the thawing of the last ice sheets. Legend even says King Arthur is buried here, sleeping on the lost isle of Avalon, to rise again in the hour of the land's greatest need. But what else lies out there, across - or beneath - those lonely desolate waters?
Avalon, by Paul 'Wiggy' Wade-Williams, is part of our Cthulhu Britannica line, each a supplement for Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game offering a decidedly British take on the Mythos. It features a history of Somerset, including a gazetteer packed with plot hooks and mysteries, as well as a detailed look at the county's folklore and legends.
There are also four complete adventures included in the book, providing you with everything you need to play a Halloween Call of Cthulhu adventure set in this corner of England, so make sure you pick up a copy in the DriveThruRPG Halloween sale before it ends!
