The Corbitt House - Call of Cthulhu - beginner friendly

Facilitator: 
Keeper

This scenario takes place in Lovecraft Country, and is suitable for up to 6 beginner investigators. Can you survive the Horror with your mind and body intact? In Call of Cthulhu games, that is the real challenge.

A landlord, Mr. Knott, asks you to examine an old house in central Boston, known as the Corbitt House. The former tenants, the Macario family, were involved in a tragedy and the owner wishes to understand the mysterious happenings at the house and set matters straight. Mr. Knott been unable to rent the house out since the tragedy and hopes that you can clear things up and restore its good name. He offers to reimburse you for your time and trouble.

Call of Cthulhu is typically set in the interwar period between 1919 and 1939. The Cthulhu Mythos, as it has come to be called, originates with the writings of HP Lovecraft. Subsequently a number of other authors added to the corpus, which is why it is called the Cthulhu Mythos and not the Lovecraft Mythos. Many other RPG systems now exist set in the mythos, not always in the 1920s.

Call of Cthulhu is a game of cooperative investigation but unlike many other RPGs is quite dangerous. Sanity and your very life are always at risk. It is gritty and apart from the Fantasy Horror elements, aims to be quite realistic. A stab or a gunshot can kill you outright. However, smart investigation and care can mean all the investigators can survive and solve the mystery. Players used to high hitpoints and magic potions of healing may be disappointed.

Facilitator: 
Karen Wilson

Childermas Atoll has been gradually eroding into the ocean, but Cyclone Hilda appears to have accelerated its demise. In the aftermath of the cyclone, there has been no contact from anyone on the island. Satellite pictures suggest that Stella Maris Mission and the Happy Squid processing complex are the only major buildings that survived the storm. An Emergency Response team was dispatched by seaplane from Auckland yesterday, but ceased transmitting en route.

Now you are on your way to Childermas. Your official role is to find and assist any survivors and clear the airfield so supplies and emergency personnel can be flown in. But as agents of a secret international taskforce, you are expecting trouble of a different kind.
