A downloadable Tabletop RPG (Solo)

An Introductory Solitaire Adventure for Call of Cthulhu

This is a solo adventure for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. It is a horror story set in the 1920s where you are the main character, and your choices determine the outcome. It is also designed to lead you through the basic rules of the game in a gradual and entertaining fashion. Although most such adventures are played with your friends, this one is just for you. 

Before you begin to play, make sure you have a copy of the Call of Cthulhu Seventh Edition Quick-Start Rules and a blank investigator sheet (download from this page). You’ll also need a pencil, an eraser, and some roleplaying dice. 

You don’t need to read the rules before you start playing. Just settle in a comfortable chair before a roaring fire. Then read on and follow the instructions. 

…On second thought, don’t sit too close to the fire.

This version has a mistake. Entry 28 says “Make a roll. If you succeed, go to 35. If you fail, go to 41”, omitting against what. It has since been corrected in the version on their website and should be “Make a Natural World roll.
