Death is the Final Escape
Bryan Rudolph ($6.00, 59 page PDF)

The investigators find themselves researching a murder-suicide involving a famous escape artist. The story explores vaudeville in the early 20th century, as well as a power struggle within a dangerous cult.

Depending upon the choices of the investigators, it may culminate in their needing to perform an escape artist act of their own!

Our Wet Grave
Graham Payne ($3.99, 16 page PDF)

The year is 1916. Something moves through the German and Allied fronts, a daemon of decay and malice that seems to be the brutal spirit of the war come to life.

In the heart of war, there is only darkness.

The Returned

Deep-Seeded Secrets
Jade Griffin ($4.99, 35 page PDF)

Ipswich, Massachusetts. December 1922. Investigators follow two cryptic letters to a Colonial-era homestead-turned-hotel which floats more than a cultural past.

Continues from the first adventure, Taken For Granite, or can be played as a solo adventure. Players choose one of two paths which ultimately leads to altering the fate of the unchosen path.

In a search for deeper artistic insight, a sculptor has opened himself to the King in Yellow. The Tattered King has given the artist understanding into the nature of reality far beyond that which humankind was meant to comprehend. Pouring this sense of awe into his work has elevated Hildred Santo to fashionable new heights in the art world, but the King’s hold and the lure of Carcosa is proving strong, and now the artist’s visions, dreams and memories have been made manifest in his studio. The doomed artist wanders in this space between this world and Carcosa. It is up to the investigators to cross over into that world and bring him back.

Will the investigators be able to solve the mystery before the very punctual arrival of sinister individuals determined to do them harm?

The fruits of last month's Write Your First Adventure' are now coming to bear in the Miskatonic Repository, with a host of new independent Call of Cthulhu titles by first-time creators. Do go check them out!

One such first-time creator is Keith D Edinburgh, and he wrote about the experience on his blog: So, I Wrote My First Adventure. Keith says:

"I’d heard pretty good things about Storytelling Collective’s Write Your First Adventure (WYFA) course.

It promised to give you all the guidance, tips and motivation to create a scenario for a tabletop roleplaying game in 30 days.

It did that. And it did a lot more (for me, at least.)

It has successfully reignited my creative spark, and set me off on what I plan and hope to be a long path."


Keith's finished work is a fully designed and published 50-page Call of Cthulhu scenario set in 1920s Edinburgh.

The Pharaoh's Sacrifice
Keith D Edinburgh ($2.95, 50 page PDF)

Looking into the disappearance of an eccentric lecturer from Edinburgh University sets in motion a chain of events that takes investigators on a journey across - and beneath - the historic 1920s streets of Scotland's capital city.

Radio Killed Verna Starr
Michael Schaal ($0.99, 13 page PDF)
In 1925 radio was sweeping the nation. The invention of the vacuum tube radio meant that everyone could listen to music, news, and sports right in their own home! The appeal was not universal however, as people deemed 'radiophobic' feared the unseen waves were having unknown impacts on the bodies and minds of those they passed through. In the town of Rosebridge, PA, those fears would prove to be completely justified.

An investigation that takes place in the small town of Rosebridge beginning on August 14th, 1925. 1-4 investigators will find they are not always sure who - or what - is reaching out through the airwaves. One by one citizens become tuned to the frequency of the mythos. It is uncertain what the new broadcasts have awakened, but the players will need to stop it before they too become radio controlled.

The Antediluvians
Tiffany Funk ($5.00, 52 page PDF)
Something is lurking in the black blizzards of the Great Plains... August 1st, 1935, northeastern South Dakota: the Great Depression and the severe droughts and dust storms of the Dust Bowl ravage middle American farmland. The town of Tillings is the site of a massive, federally funded construction: the Tillings Hydroelectric Dam. Once complete, the dam will provide much-needed irrigation to neighboring farms, flooding 300 acres of nearly deserted land. Nearly.

Luxtorpeda
Jakub Markiewicz ($3.99, 40 page PDF)
The adventure starts on the 1st of January 1934 in Zakopane, Poland, after New Year's eve celebrations. Investigators will ride the express train "Luxtorpeda" - one of the fastest trains in Europe - to Warsaw. Unbeknown to them, there are nefarious plans in motion. They will need to face ancient Serpent People plotting their comeback, temporal anomalies, and a doomsday cult summoning their god.

What starts like a typical train ride will quickly devolve into a survival scenario in a hostile environment. Will investigators survive and find a way back home? Only time will tell.

mr-aug-22-b.png


The Flooding of Black Tarn
Jonas Morian ($5.00, 22 page PDF)
It is the 1920s and the investigators have been assigned by Swedish construction company Kreuger & Toll to negotiate with villagers in a remote and rural part of Sweden, about compensation for moving so that Hammarforsen river can be regulated through a planned hydropower plant dam. But the village is protected by powerful forces that have held sway over these parts long before any people arrived.

This scenario won first prize in a competition in 2022, to write a scenario for Call of Cthulhu that took place in Sweden during the 1920s. The jury called it "a chilling tale told at the intersection of modernity, folklore and cosmic horror".

Bride of the Wilds
H.S. Falkenberry ($5.99, 28 page PDF)
"For the darkest, deepest wood in our world is but a fleeting shadow, a pale and wavering imitation, of those great Wilds that haunt Mankind’s collective Dream, that primeval Forest of the Mind whence Man first emerged from Beasthood, and in which he may with nameless aeons return to his first primordial state.” -The Yellow Book, Anonymous

On June 18th, 1932, a young woman goes missing from the lonely Appalachian college town of Belias, Georgia, amidst rumors of evil doings and witchcraft in the wilderness outside the town.

Ruling both her small cult and home with an iron fist, many of the prisoners consigned to St. Mormo's never make it back to their families or freedom.

Maps for a Mad Scientist’s Lair (Cliff Manor / Xavier Mansion) - Inspired by Doctor X (1932)
Adam Preset ($2.00, 2 digital maps)
"As a fan of old horror movies I was delighted to discover a classic, Doctor X (1932) from Warner Bros. I recommend it! It stars Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, and Lee Tracy and is directed by Michael Curtiz, well known for later giving us Casablanca. The first time I watched the film, it activated my Call of Cthulhu Keeper sensibilities. I saw that the film could be translated into a great, but self-contained adventure that my players would enjoy. I made notes for myself of the film and converted them into a format I could use for running a scenario. It went smashingly. But! I needed at least one map for one location. And so that’s what you see here - a set of two maps suitable for virtual tabletop or printing."

Silcestre has always been plagued by certain terrible secrets and now various forces seek them out for their own gain. Who are these people and what exactly do they want? Can the investigators learn The Secret of Silcestre before others?

The Secret of Silcestre is a Cthulhu Dark Ages scenario set in England in the year 1002 A.D. The investigators are travelers on the road from London to Winchester, stopping in Silcestre overnight, when they learn of strange things happening in the village.

We are very proud of the alumni of the Summer 2022 RPG Writer Workshop! These new bundles at DriveThruRPG are a great way to see their handiwork and support and encourage these talented first-time TTRPG creators.
In this one-month-long, self-paced workshop by the Storytelling Collective, aspiring creators write, produce and publish a 3,500-word adventure!

The Call of Cthulhu Path was designed by co-author of Call of Cthulhu 7th edition, Paul Fricker, author of the bestselling Miskatonic Repository titles Full Fathom Five and Dockside Dogs.

Paul said, "When Chaosium asked me to write the Call of Cthulhu, I had no idea how fantastically popular it would be! See the link for a bargain bundle of 24 scenarios from the course!"

The new RuneQuest Path was designed by Chaosium community content ambassador Nick Brooke, author of the best-selling Jonstown Compendium titles Black Spear and The Duel at Dangerford.

Nick said: "I was delighted to adapt Paul Fricker’s Call of Cthulhu writing course for RuneQuest (replacing Lovecraftian cosmic horror with Bronze Age mythological heroism throughout), and impressed with the quality of the published graduates’ work. I do know several other participants are still finishing their adventures too."

Also check out the other Call of Cthulhu bundles from previous workshops.

Please note, as with all DriveThruRPG bundles if you've already bought any of the titles included you don't pay twice for the titles you own.

Coming up on the next Miskatonic Monday (we promise this time)​

We said we'd be announcing the 1000th Miskatonic Repository release in this post. But we've decided to postpone marking that milestone until next time in order to celebrate the RPG Writer Workshop Bundles on their release.

Meanwhile, please do check out the 250th release on the Jonstown Compendium, our community content platform for RuneQuest and Greg Stafford's world of Glorantha.

Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien said, "We congratulate the hundreds of creators involved in reaching this significant milestone, many of whom got their first experience of publishing a TTRPG title in the Miskatonic Repository.

We encourage Call of Cthulhu fans to check out everything on offer in the Miskatonic Repository, and if they have an itch to create something themselves, our community is ready to help!"

The #MiskatonicMonday posts at the Chaosium news blog also promote new releases in the Miskatonic Repository on a regular basis.

"We know Miskatonic Repository titles are popular with fans because they invariably feature in the Top Ten of DriveThruRPG's Top Selling Community Content list, and sometimes even at the top of the bestselling list for the entire DriveThruRPG site itself." said O'Brien.
