Calling the King is the second in a series of Call of Cthulhu scenarios all linked by the Yellow Sign.

The Curse of the Yellow Sign scenarios contain no blasphemous books, no monsters, no cultists and no Library Use rolls. Only ordinary humans confronted with the true nature of the universe. They are designed to be played in a single evening with limited preparation and maximum impact, filled with the kind of ruthless game master techniques you'd expect from John Wick.

Calling the King contains:

  • Full map of the hotel
  • 6 pre-generated and illustrated characters
  • Excerpts from Act 1 of The King in Yellow
  • Theories on the ever-mercurial, seemingly shapeshifting play
  • Tons of advice and playtest notes

Campaigns: This volume is the second of three that make up the Curse of the Yellow Sign (Campaign)

Scenarios: Curse of the Yellow Sign, Act 2: Calling the King (Scenario)

Additional: Introduction, Maps, Pregenerated Characters

Back Cover Text

At the turn of the century
In an abandoned hotel
In the dead darkness of winter
Six actors sit to read a cursed play

One things of murder
Another thinks of power
One thinks of hope
Another things of sex
One is losing his mind
And the last just wants to end
her pain

None of them are prepared.

They are about to call the King...

Calling the King is a Call of
Cthulhu scenario for six players.

It will remove all your illusions.
About life.
About love.
About hope.

You are not prepared.
