Cosmic Horror Roleplaying in Ancient Rome

Back Cover Text

In the beginning there was Chaos. From Chaos, the Earth was born, and she created the Heavens to be her husband. Together the Heavens and the Earth filled the world with their children, terrible monsters more powerful than the gods of man. These monsters were the first beings to tread upon the world, but now they are gone. Some sleep deep in the sea, some cast beyond the stars, and others trapped not in the spaces we know, but between them. When their father, the Heavens, so decrees, these monsters shall return and resume their mastery of the Earth The Old Ones were, The Old Ones are, And the Old Ones shall be once again... —muttered by Lucius Covis, once a great philosopher, but now a wandering madman; a veteran of The Shadow War.
