There's a scenario called "Kharkov Tractor Station 37" or something like that, set in the 30's.

 

I think it would be an interesting reversal--kind of like Telefon.

There's another one that was published I think in a French magazine or website but I'll have to drag it out to get the title but involved the discovery of a shoggoth under the Kremlin and the Russian experiments on it. I think it dates back to the '90s when it was written and IIRC takes place between the wars during the time of Comrade Stalin. (The text is in english but the map names and titles are in french).

Almost forgot "Sleigh Ride" I think it's called from "Fearful Passages" which is the last scenario entry in that supplement

So to summarise so far and maybe add another.........

 

For Stalinist era stuff there's :

 

1) A monograph called 'Machine Tractor Station Kharkov 37'. I've ran this and it's very good....

 

2) Another monograph called 'The Terror'....There's been some discussion of that on here to the effect that it's a little disappointing - but I haven't seen a proper review so I'll full reserve judgement on that......

 

3) The scenario 'Sleigh Ride' in Fearful Passages' (Siberia 1926 is when/where it is set)....

 

4) A scenario called 'Secrets of the Kremlin' which I think appeared in an old collection called 'Glozel est Authentique' (this might be the one Talionis is referring to but I'm not sure). I think this might now be free to download online somewhere.....

 

 

And then there's also the write-up in Delta Green Countdown for 'GRU-SV8' - a post Soviet military dept who have had brushes with the mythos in the past - so there's stuff in there about their history in the Stalinist era and what they encountered......Again - this stuff is good.

 

Anyone got any others.... ?

There's also Devil in the Dark which is set in the waning days of the empire, and is still undergoing some development.

It looks like we can add something to the list-

A White Winter from the new monograph Christmas in Kingsport

 

I know nothing of it beyond this description:

'A White Winter'

The period following World War I finds a world in change; an exciting time to be alive. Revolutions sweeps the collapsing empires of eastern Europe. This tale is set in 1919 in Siberia during the Russian civil war.

 

Here are some links to the other monographs:

 

My monograph- Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37 (1930s)

 

Somebody else's monograph- Terror (1930s)

 

A quick search for either of these titles in the forums will turn up a number of comments.

Yes, Adam A is right; it's Secrets of the Kremlin. I haven't run it but it's a good read and includes a bit of good source material, writing is good and so is the internal art, photos and diagrams.

The Question is, Which Great Old One resides in Russia?

All of the real ones. The NKVD airbrushed all the non-Russian ones out of the family photo when they were declared to be Trotskyite counter-revolutionaries.

Not an adventure but a good source for the feal of Soviet Russia during the classic setting is We the Living by Ayn Rand.

It's a short novel about a girl, who’s family were well to do factory owners during the Tsar's time. It takes place in St. Petersburg/Petrograd/Leningrad during the period shortly after the end of the revolution and deals mostly with her struggle to escape Russia. I don't know that I'd call it a great book but for these purposes it would be useful.

If you want a novel about 1920s Russia, try anything by Ilf and Petrov you can find translated. I've only read "The Twelve Chairs", but it's a very funny book, and takes you on an epic journey across the Soviet Union, as well as adroitly satirizing the new regime.

 

There an excerpt on the web here:

They also made a film of it back in the 60s IIRC, but I've never seen it.

They = Mel Brooks, although nowhere as over the top as his better-known films.

Steve Jackson Games once published a book about medieval Russia (plainly called GURPS Russia). There is a bit about Russian mythology in that book. Perhaps some of it could be mythosized by a keeper. I can recommend the book even if I haven't used it in any RPG sessions I have run (my GURPS library is rather extensive, most of the books I have not opened since I read them through the first time).
