Back Cover Text


The horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos lurk in the darkest corners of our wholesome world. Sometimes they seek to pour forth from those darkened corners to wreak unimaginable havok upon the Earth.

Within these pages are six such Lurking Fears, which must be faced by those intrepid few who have faced fears before and thwarted them. Can they do so again?

From the Everglades of Florida, to the deserts of Egypt, Lurking Fears pits the Investigators against seldom-before encountered creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos such as Glaaki and the foul Spawn of Abhoth.

Contained in this volume are three regular length scenarios, one short "one-nighter", and a two-part campaign which will take your band of Investigators from the mountains of Carolina to an ancient shrine to the Great Old Ones and a confrontation with a ruthless undead villian.

Included here are:

RISE OF THE SLEEPER- In which an unexpected inheritance leads to a nightmare of undeath in the Florida Everglades.

CALLER IN THE DESERT- In which a carefree holiday in Egypt becomes a living nightmare from the nighted mists of prehistory.

THE SUNDIAL OF AMEN-TET- In which a family crisis leads to a time-traveling madman.

SORROW'S GLEN- In which a morbid archaeological site conceals an abysmal horror.

THE STAR-SHRINE- In which a vampire seeks to free the Great Old Ones.

THE DEVOURER- In which a star-spawned horror threatens to consume the world.

Are you ready for the adventure?

Are you read for the nighted horror?

Dare you face these Lurking Fears?
