Five classic adventures set in Arkham country, including visits to Arkham, Dunwich & Kingsport

Back Cover Text

There is, in the state of Massachusetts, a valley along a river called the Miskatonic. It is shunned by its neighbors, for its cities are the focus of many dark legends. Dream-filled Kingsport, decadent Dunwich, witch-haunted Arkham, and ruined Innsmouth are all spoken of only in whispers. Few realize that the whispered legends of the Miskatonic Valley hide the darkest truth.

Within you will find five adventures, running the length of the Miskatonic Valley. Investigators can visit Arkham, Bolton, Dunwich, Falcon Point, Kingsport, and even the Dreamlands. Ancient temples, degenerate deep ones, strange disappearances, and a murderous sorcerer are just some of what they will face... in Arkham Country.

This suppliment is part of the Lovecraft Country series of gamebooks, which features background and adventures in Lovecraft's Miskatonic Valley. Other books in the series include The Compact Arkham Unveiled, Escape from Innsmouth Second Edition, and Dead Reckonings.
