From the stable that brought you the Ennie and Origins award-winning Shadows over Scotland, headed up by Shadows author Stuart Boon:

Cthulhu Britannica: Folklore

Behind the modern façade of Britain in the 1920s is a country teeming with links to the supernatural. British folklore harkens back to days of old when early cultures lived alongside strange folk and stranger creatures, when druids and shamans made sacrifices to pantheons of gods both powerful and terrible, and when people celebrated myth and legend in song, art, and oral tradition at the very heart of their civilizations. And those deep roots that so colourfully tell of fantastical creatures, miraculous events, and wondrous deeds also hint and grasp blindly at darker truths. The truth is that folklore can take us behind the veil of reality to glimpse the terrible, alien truths of the universe beyond, capturing vague notions of evil, malevolent beings, their horrible deeds, and the primal fears that they inspire and that have been preserved in Britain’s cultural memory.

Cthulhu Britanica: Folklore presents a uniquely British vision of Lovecraftian horror where fairies, witches, and folk traditions intertwine with the dreadful, eldritch powers and otherworldly terrors of the Cthulhu Mythos. The book features:

  • A folklore bestiary, including fairy folk, shape-shifters, giants, little folk, black dogs, dragons, water horses, bodily horrors, and much more
  • A folklore calendar and a new 1920s profession—the folklorist—for players
  • Detailed sections on using folklore and folk magic for Call of Cthulhu Keepers
  • And nine Folklore Mythos threats that can introduced into any scenario or campaign, or used as single-session scenarios

“Storytelling is at its heart, from the short stories that have featured in role-playing gamebooks, to the stories those books allow you to tell. With this book, you can simply submerge yourself in the tales of Promethea – the country created and ruled by Victor Frankenstein. When you come out at the other side, I am certain you will have a few stories of your own to tell.”
From the Foreword by Ian Livingstone

Available Now DH:LoF – Tales of Promethea is a collection of short fiction set in the fictional country of Promethea, first laid bare in the award-winning, critically acclaimed RPG Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein.

With stories from both new and established talent from within and without the role-playing game world, Tales of Promethea gives both new readers and those already familiar with Victor Frankenstein’s country a chance to explore this terrifying, wonderful place. Within its pages you will -

Follow one poor soul’s attempt to escape Promethea;

Read of an orphan’s struggle to avoid the Harvest;

Hear from one who was there from the beginning how Promethea came to be;

Discover how desperate you have to be to try to break into the country;

Count the very human cost of Frankenstein’s dark gift to the world.

Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein – Tales of Promethea, the 330 page pdf  is available now at the Drivethru fiction store for $3.99.

Authors: Iain Lowson, Matt Gibbs, Andrew Harman, Magz Wiseman, Greg Stolze, James Desborough, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, Kate Harrad, Stuart Boon, Tim Dedopulos.

 

 

Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein is a detailed, fascinating game setting, a terrifyingly plausible alternative history, and a fiction anthology; a gothic horror fantasy that will appeal to gamers and the general public alike.  The first supplement, Resistance, was released earlier this year.

Dark Harvest: The Legacy of Frankenstein uses a version of the Heresy Engine system and is fully compatible with the Victoriana 2nd Edition, from Cubicle 7 Entertainment. The core book is a standalone game.
