This is the original Monograph publication of Chaosium's source material on running classic era Call of Cthulhu adventures in Morocco. This material was later revised and issued as a supplement to the main Call of Cthulhu line: Secrets of Morocco (released 2008).

This book is designed to provide keepers with a civil, geographical, cultural, political, and a Mythos tour of Morocco during the 1920s and 1930s. The majority of the material in this book is factual, though there are numerous portions that have been elaborated upon for use with Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

The best way to use this book is as a reference for scenarios or campaigns set in North Africa. This book covers several locations in Morocco, including Rabat, Casablanca, the Rif and Atlas mountain regions, and the Sahara. Also included in this book is a scenario that takes investigators across Morocco and into the cities and rural regions. Because Morocco was under re-construction during the 1920s, some of the areas are left for the keeper to develop. The book contains examples of common urban and rural features, providing source material for a keeper to construct or complete villages and cities.

Because of the vastness of the country, not every city can be covered in detail. Instead, this book explores the political capital, Rabat, and the economic capital, Casablanca, of Morocco. Additional maps of cities are included, with character templates, optional skills and rules, as well as numerous NPCs to bring Morocco of the 1920s to life.
