In May of 1939, somewhere in the jungles of Africa, a small band of soldiers have stumbled across something ancient. Something terrible.

And they are about to suffer the consequences.

Digging for a Dead God is the first in a series of Call of Cthulhu scenarios all linked by the Yellow Sign.

The Curse of the Yellow Sign scenarios contain no blasphemous books, no monsters, no cultists and no Library Use rolls. Only ordinary humans confronted with the true nature of the universe. They are designed to be played in a single evening with limited preparation and maximum impact, filled with the kind of ruthless game master techniques you'd expect from John Wick.

  • 2 maps
  • 6 pre-generated characters
  • Tons of advice and playtest notes

Campaigns: This volume is the first of three that make up the Curse of the Yellow Sign (Campaign)
