Der Nachtexpress

Ein Abenteuer für Cthulhu in den 1920ern

Comments / Trivia

This adventure marks Pegasus Press' first foray into pdf publications.

It's an one-shot adventure (~2h) used by the Pegasus-Supportteam to introduce new players into Call of Cthulhu, therefore no prior knowlegde of the mythos is neccessary.

The adventure takes place in the winter of 1925 during a train ride between Frankfurt am Main and Berlin, but, as it only takes place in the confines of two train carriages, can easily be transplanted to any train ride.
