Comments / Trivia

This product was funded as part of the Kickstarter campaign for the Cthulhu Britannica London Box set, held in late 2012. Backers of the Kickstarter also received two journals (The Journal of Reginald Campbell Thompson and The Journal of Neve Selcibuc) which are stand-alone booklets in their own right but also tie in to The Curse of Nineveh, providing deluxe handouts for the campaign. The journals can be purchased separately from Cubicle 7.
