MEDIA RELEASE – for immediate release

The Children of Fear, Chaosium’s epic new multi-part campaign for Call of Cthulhu is now out in PDF!*

*buy the PDF from now, get the full price of the PDF off the cost of the 416 page hardback book when it out early next year.

In September 1923, an urgent and mysterious telegram plunges the investigators into an epic journey across China, Central Asia, Northern India, and Tibet. Often following in the footsteps of the famous Chinese Buddhist monk and explorer Hiuen-Tsiang (immortalized in the fantastical Chinese saga Journey to the West), they must visit looted temples, lost lakes, dusty museums, charnel grounds, venerable monasteries, and hidden secret valleys if they are to succeed in their quest to prevent the King of Fear and his lieutenants from destroying everything they hold dear…

Developed over four years of meticulous research, consultations, and playtesting, Lynne Hardy’s The Children of Fear explores myths and legends of Central Asia and Northern India.

A wealth of player hand-outs and maps enhance both the player experience and immersion!

The Children of Fear includes six pre-generated characters so players can jump right into the action. A host of non-player characters, all with their own agendas, accompany new Cthulhu Mythos monsters for use in any Call of Cthulhu scenario.
