Into the West

As I’ve mentioned previously, I recently wrote Sundown, a Call of Cthulhu adventure set in the Old West, as my Fright Night offering, and to celebrate the 30the Anniversary of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. This is now available, free to download, via Chaosium or RPGNow/DriveThruRPG.

As you will see from my previous post about the anatomy of Call of Cthulhu adventures, I haven’t managed to steer away from the pitfalls of this kind of old-school offering entirely, in some-part because of the constraints of this scenario as a ‘con offering - although I have tried to flag them, where applicable. Thanks to all the playtesters who made this a memorable game to run.

Feedback welcome.


  1. Cool.

    As a matter of interest, what was it like dealing with Chaosium?

  2. Cheers

    No stress at all. I said "Hey, I wrote this thing and thought you might like to use it on your website" they said "cool, send it to us". A short time later it was live. Not sure if they plan to plug it in their newsletter - or just let it abide in their catalog.

    Also, the Envy in me is flattered by the nice things in this review:

  3. I am playing in it at KapCon. But after that I'll read it and let you know something or another.

  4. Nice - I look forward to reading your "something or another".

    A few days ago I went back and downloaded your scenario 'The Hand That Feeds' as I was curious to see how you had approached the genre.
