Welcome to the Land of Dreams

From a squalid New York drug den to the spectral ruins of Sarkomand . . .

From the horrors of the Underworld to the zoog-haunted Enchanted Wood . . .

From the twilight city of Inquanok to the endless sunset of Ilek-Vad . . .

All the wonders of dream await—and all the terrors of nightmare, too.

The Sense of the Sleight-of-Hand Man is a full-length Call of Cthulhu (Sixth Edition) campaign of adventure, cosmic mystery, and deepest fear set in the Dreamlands of H.P. Lovecraft. The player characters—the Dreamers—explore the breadth of the otherworldly Dreamlands seeking a way back to the lives that they left behind. But can they survive the countless dangers of a world of dream—and the strange emnity of Nyarlathotep, the messenger and soul of the Outer Gods, when they fall under his capricious gaze?

The Campaign is made up of the following chapters:

Comments / Trivia

The first chapter appeared in Worlds of Cthulhu #6; also available [HERE]. Unformatted longer selection available [HERE]

Kickstarter backers were originally supposed to receive a hardback book (upgraded as a stretch goal during the campaign); however, as production of the book progressed and it more than doubled in size this proved too costly. Kickstarter backers were instead provided softcover books with the option of purchasing a hardcover print-on-demand version at a heavily reduced fee.
