Ghastly Adventures & Erudite Lore

The Cthulhu Companion is a collection of new Cthulhu mythos lore, scenarios, and rules additions to the game. From this volume the Investigators gain two new skills and a chance to encounter prehistoric monsters, find a missing uncle, stop cattle mutilations, and solve a kidnaping. The grim prisons of four continents plus new Cthulhu mythos deities, races, and monsters help the Keeper propel the Investigators to madness. Player-characters will reel from new phobias and insanity types.

Comments / Trivia

Most of the rules and sourcebook additions were added to the Third Edition rules. The Secret of Castronegro was reprinted in Cthulhu Classics.
