Gazing into the Dark Mirror

This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten." —D. H. Lawrence

CALL OF CTHULHU pits a dedicated group of investigators (controlled by the players) against a whole host of ills and evils. Sometimes the investigators are simply clearing up a localised problem where something has gone awry. Other times the investigators are battling tooth-and-nail against a global cabal, intent on plunging the world into darkness. Either way, it is the investigator who struggles against utter peril.

But what if the investigator, rather than being a fearless paragon of order and humanity, was instead the bringer of night, a cultist who struggles towards the darkness and rages against the light? In DARK MIRROR this is the sinister reality. Rather than trying to stop the great Cthulhu and his ilk from destroying the world, you want to help out. Rather than halt the slide into madness, you want a front row seat. In the dark mirror you are Dorian Gray's reflection. You are the devoted residents of Innsmouth, the worshippers at the foot of Nyarlathotep, the devotees of Joseph Curwen, and the disciples of Cthulhu!
