Back Cover Text

1940 Europe is Burning...
...but a greater threat dwells in the shadows.

Dr. Franklin Quigley has a delicate problem: his wife has lost her mind and fled with their strangely deformed young daughter.

His innocent request: find them and bring them back.

But when the cemetery earth churns with the blood of the dead and the ground reverberates with the cries of feasting, innocence begets only corruption.

The Realm of Shadows is a major new Call of Cthulhu campaign from the author of Walker in the Wastes and Coming Full Circle. Inside you’ll find source material on ghouls, the Cult of the Charnel God, and the notorious Cultes des Goules, as well as four adventures that take investigators through Massachusetts, the Dreamlands, and the rain forests of French Guiana. Featuring extensive investigations, numerous player aids, and terrifying opponents. The Realm of Shadows is a feast of horror.

Comments / Trivia

The Realms of Shadows is a sequel of sorts to Pagan Publishing's previous Coming Full Circle (Campaign), however it is not necessary to have Coming Full Circle to run Realms of Shadows.

Pagan Publishing also sold The Realm of Shadows Player Aid Kit - an envelope of higher quality versions of the player handouts.

This scenario states that it is "based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith."
