An Inner Darkness (Call of Cthulhu RPG)
While the best of humankind fights for just laws and civilization, those who cling to power and privilege stand ready to quash protections for those who need them the most. In the shadows of human injustice lurk loathsome, inhuman entities. As investigators square off against the mankind’s darkest nature, they sometimes find themselves entangled with the parasitic and corrupting powers of the Mythos.
An Inner Darkness presents a collection of well researched, historically accurate and challenging adventures, with a darker, harsher and more brutal tone than what is usually found in your typical roleplaying scenario. This is a more mature book, focused on adult themes, designed to spark deep conversations among your players for years to come.
Each scenario features the malignant taint of the Cthulhu Mythos, but at the forefront of each are examples of social injustice, societal corruption, and mankind’s inhumanity to man. The 1920s was a period of great social upheaval in America, when the borders between classes, races, and genders were changed. In this time of social upheaval and chaos, eldritch forces found fertile ground to exploit us. Mankind is never so vulnerable than when we are divided from within.
