The dawn of the 20th Century. New England, America; Lovecraft country. Home to university libraries filled with worm-eaten tomes, legend-haunted towns populated with degenerate locals and their rustic superstitions, Cyclopean ruins from long-forgotten aeons, and the disquieting glimpses of things from beyond. You are the unwilling guests of an antiquated sanatorium, perhaps the infamous Arkham Sanatorium, or maybe the Danvers State Asylum. Your only hope of escape is to convince your fellow inmates (and perhaps yourself) that you do not belong here. And so you begin to explain the sinister series of events that led to your unjust incarceration. Unfortunately, your memories are populated by the stuff of nightmares... Cthulhu Tales brings horrifying and darkly humorous storytelling to your gaming table.
