Terror From The Skies
A Race to Save Humanity from a Dark Future

THE LOVECRAFTIAN MYTHOS is populated by many creatures, both singular entities such as Cthulhu and Hastur, and creatures who number in the millions. The shan are an ancient, insect-like alien race fleeing a destroyed homeworld. Forced into a nomadic life they are scattered throughout space. Aeons ago a number of shan arrived on Earth, but certain properties in our sun’s light weakens them. Trapped, these first arrivals fell into idleness and decadence, acting only by seeping into the sleeping minds of human beings. In TERROR FROM THE SKIES, bretheren of those first shan have come to Earth, vigorous and agressive, not yet weakened by our sunlight. Their insidious plan threatens the elimination of the human "infestation" and the founding of a new shan homeworld.

In Terror From The Skies investigators partake in a race to save the earth from malevolent creatures. Set in 1920s England, this adventure is rife with plot twists, mini-adventures linked to create a sizable campaign, and formidable foes. Investigators are lured into the campaign with a tale of local mystery, which slowly unfolds into a heart-pumping time-sensitive race for humanity!

This campaign intertwines historic events with mythos themes, creating an interesting and captivating experience for keepers and players alike. Terror From The Skies includes 10 chapters, an array of interesting NPCs, and a variety of maps and handouts. 128 pages.
