CHILLING ROLEPLAYING IN THE WORLDS OF H.P. LOVECRAFT
Reign of Terror is an epic two-part historical scenario and source book, set during the French Revolution. This period in history was horrifying enough without adding Lovecraft’s horrors to it too!
This book can be used to play a stand-alone mini-campaign or as an historical interlude in another campaign.
So, you can keep your playing on their toes and transport them and the game somewhere different than the traditional 1920's setting.
This book gives you great background on The French Revolution and a good section of the book is taken up with this background detail, allowing you to use it as a guide to further adventures during this period.
The beautiful maps and colour plates of historic paintings really setting the mood for you and your players.
The historical scenario itself is split into two parts, with a five-year gap in between.
Pre-generated characters are provided, casting the player characters in the role of soldiers in a time of great turmoil.
Liberty! Equality! Fraternity!
Whether choosing to play Reign of Terror as part of Horror on the Orient Express or as a stand alone scenario, its twisting plot, dire threats, and enthralling streets of Paris (to say nothing of the horrors within the catacombs!) will keep your gaming group entertained for multiple play sessions.
This is a great setting to play to call of Cthulhu … if you do not lose your head that is!
