The Curse of Nineveh


Newly released in PDF format to Cthulhu Britannica: London Kickstarter backers is, The Curse of Nineveh, a 224 page Jazz Age Call of Cthulhu campaign.

The Curse of Nineveh is "a seven-part campaign set 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!"

No doubt it will be available soon to non-Kickstarter folks, along with the print edition to follow.

Another one to add to my "must-run" pile, but in the meantime we can always talk about it!
The Curse of Nineveh

The Curse of Nineveh, The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson, and The Journal of Neve Selcibuc

The Curse of Nineveh is an epic campaign set in London, whilst The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson and The Journal of Neve Selcibuc are a pair of bespoke handouts, in-world artefacts that complement the campaign wonderfully.

In ancient times, when 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 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!

We’ve got a great team of writers onboard for this one: Mike Mason (line editor for Call of Cthulhu at Chaosium), Paul Fricker (who wrote Call of Cthulhu 7th edition), Scott Dorward (our own line developer for World War Cthulhu) and Mark Latham (former editor of White Dwarf and soon-to-be-published novelist).

The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson and The Journal of Neve Selcibuc are both designed to look like in-world artefacts. They go hand in hand with The Curse of Nineveh campaign, acting as a prologue of sorts – the former tells the tale of the expedition to Nineveh itself, the latter touches on the mysterious events that surround the expedition’s return before the investigators get involved. Although they’re both great reads by themselves, they really come into their own if you’re a Keeper running The Curse of Nineveh as the journals both serve as handouts that you can hand to your players at the appropriate place in the story! They’re shaping up to be something really special!

While you don’t need Cthulhu Britannica: London to play the campaign, you will find it packed full of descriptions of London, its environs and its inhabitants that will prove invaluable during the game.

Scenarios include:
  • Ancient Echoes, by Mike Mason – A horrific murder, a mysterious statuette and a secret expedition returned from Iraq kick the campaign off, confronting the investigators with the Curse of Nineveh. Can they solve it before the curse claims them too?
  • That Which Was Broken, by Mike Mason – The Investigators are asked to look into a series of unexplainable, impossible thefts of antiquities, and find out that danger not only lurks in the shadows – but is the shadows!
  • Bedlam, by Mark A. Latham – The Investigators learn of an inmate at Royal Bethlem Hospital, known more commonly as Bedlam, who has strange cuneiform script carved into his very skin, script that he had been translating from the Temple of Nabu.
  • The Watchers Below, by Mark A. Latham – The Investigators discover that the fabled Horn of Alû is to be auctioned off at Sotheby’s, in London. This artefact is said to summon the terrifying supernatural monster that once guarded the Temple of Nabu and must not fall into the wrong hands – but the Investigators are by no means the only interested parties.
  • Catland, Sometimes Called Pussydom, by Scott Dorward – An ancient artefact has fallen into the wrong hands and has escalated a petty squabble amongst a group of cat fanciers into murder, theft and worse. Travel to Croydon, over the River Wandle, where it is said no man may harm a cat…
  • Rise of the King, by Paul Fricker – There is a reason why Nabu, the Assyrian God of Writing, was sealed within his own temple when Nineveh was sacked in ancient times. But the temple is now open, rebuilt within the British Museum, and Nabu is free to possess a mortal host once more…
  • For King and Country, by Paul Fricker – In which… actually, we really can’t say anything about this scenario without giving it away. You’ll just have to read The Curse of Nineveh for yourself!
Price: £26.99 (hardcover) and £14.93 (PDF)
