CALL OF CTHULHU KEEPERS (Keepers of Forbidden Lore) can now keep their secrets in style. This new three panel Keeper's Screen is jam-packed with vital GM information presented in any easy to use at a glance format. The player's side of the screen features awesome Philippe Caza artwork worthy of its own sanity check.

This product includes a new introductory scenario perfect for beginning investigators and keepers alike, as well as three 4-page game aids (weapons table with an alien weapons section, a new 4-page summary of rule book spells, and some character sheet masters to jump-start your new Call of Cthulhu game).

Comments / Trivia

The scenario in this package has not been reprinted (to-date) in any other publication

The Keeper Screen has a quite serious layout / printing error: the Resistance table appears with large black rectangles obscuring the row and column numbers (or the numbers are simply missing). To rectify this flaw, Chaosium added a separate Resistance Table game aid to the package.
