And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!"

– traditional Scottish prayer

Go ahead ...

Say your prayers
Light your lamp
Load your revolver

It won’t do any good.

Inside this musty tome you won’t find deep ones, or shoggoths, or Great Old Ones, but you will find loathsome horrors perpetrated by both the living and the dead. Ghosts, demons, poltergeists, spirits and the undead are the order of the day.

Ghosts, demons, poltergeists, spirits and the undead are the order of the day.

What horror is devouring the locals in "The Westerfield Incident?"
What has caused the graves to open in "The Vengeful Dead?"
Can the Investigators save themselves from "The Bitter Venom of the Gods?"
Will they unravel the "Curse of the Screaming Skull?"
Can they bring peace to "An Unsettled Mind?"

It won't help your Investigators if they've read the Malleus Monstrorum or own their own copy of the core Call of Cthulhu rulebook. There's nothing in those well-thumbed volumes to help them here. In here, they're on their own.


Comments / Trivia

Earlier, Pagan Publishing announced that customers who pre-order the physical book version of this product would also get a PDF of the book before it goes to the printer.

In mid March of 2012 Pagan [announced a Kickstarter fundraiser] to cover printing costs not covered via the earlier pre-order; pledged funds were over five times the required $2500.

Notably, the Kickstarter funding does not cover the production of a PDF version (except for playtest notes and handouts) -- a FAQ states that Pagan does not currently have a license from the author to produce an ebook version of "Bumps In The Night," presumably due to John Crowe's much publicised long-time reluctance to have his work appear in PDF format.
