New Lovecraft Country adventures for Call of Cthulhu

Back Cover Text

Nearly every town and village in the Miskatonic Valley shares a shadowy past. Many are still plagued by sinister revenants of those dark days. Yet new mysteries also appear with uncanny regularity. It would seem that Lovecraft Country will always be a haunted landscape.

Dead Reckonings is an anthology of Call of Cthulhu scenarios set in Howard Lovecraft's mysterious New England. Set in Arkham, Dunwich, and the small village of Martin's Beach, these adventures span the spectrum of terror. Herein the dead walk, shadowy cults clash with monstrous forces, and an abomination awaits rebirth into something even worse.

This suppplement is part of the Lovecraft Country series of gamebooks, which features background and adventures for Lovecraft's Miskatonic Valley. Other books in the series include The Compact Arkham Unveiled, Escape from Innsmouth Second Edition and Adventures in Arkham Country.
