THE LEGACY OF ARRIUS LURCO
A Campaign for Cthulhu Invictus
"I am not a hero; I am but a man, a mortal man without much time left upon this earth. But I will attempt to make a difference. I will stand and fight and likely fail. But I will not go quietly or meekly. Let this, above all else, be my legacy."
-- Quintus Arrius Lurco
A wealthy partician, who owns a controlling interest in the Reds Chariot Racing faction, vanished in Crete. Weeks later, he was found wandering, without a memory of where he had been or what had happened to him. Arrius Lurco went home and tried to resume his normal life, but soon the nightmares and erratic behaviour began. Investigators are thus drawn into an epic struggle against sinister cults, horrific creatures and the awesome powers of a Great Old One.
