Back Cover Text

Nyarlathotep. The Crawling Chaos. Messenger of the Outer Gods. He has a thousand masks and a thousand schemes, and one of them begins here. When Byron Humphrey found the Dreaming Stone in the tomb of an Incan priest, he could not have imagined that it would embroil him in the plots of Nyarlathotep. Now, he and the investigators must fight not only for their lives, but for their very souls.

The Dreaming Stone is set primarily in H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands. There, the investigators will travel through many realms of wonders. The Temple of Lovelieness at Kiran, the Jungle of Kled, the Great Library of the Dreamlands, the desolate Forbidden Lands, and the Far Side of the Moon are just a few of the stops in this epic campaign. Will the investigators be able to halt Nyarlathotep's plan before it is too late?

Comments / Trivia

Dedication: "This Book is for Mark & Penny: Valiant investigators, proud dreamers, good friends. Cheers!". Presumbly this refers to Mark Morrison and Penelope Love (?)
