A Trail of Cthulhu Adventure

Providence, Salem, & Newport

Hosted by Kenneth Hite

Trail of Cthulhu

Kenneth Hite has been running RPGs since before Call of Cthulhu came out, and writing them professionally since 1996. Pelgrane Press published his ENnie-award-winning GUMSHOE system game Trail of Cthulhu in 2008. He has since added to the Trail of Cthulhu line with Shadows Over Filmland, Rough Magicks, Bookhounds of London, Mythos Expeditions, and the Mythos bestiary Hideous Creatures. He is also the author of two volumes of Lovecraftian essays, Tour de Lovecraft, and four Lovecraftian children’s books from Atlas Games.

Kenneth has created the Trail of Cthulhu adventure “The Shadow Out of Salem” specifically for this tour, setting it in locations you visit by day in person and by night in imagination. Witchcraft and the resurrected dead haunt your footsteps in this eerie urban adventure that takes your Investigators from the sight of stars to the terror of the pit.

Trail of Cthulhu

Trail of Cthulhu is based on the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. It is set during the historical 1930s of our own world, but with fictional characters and locations and the menacing Cthulhu Mythos present in the background. Horrid monsters lurk in dark and forgotten places, while fiendish cults worship Great Old Ones and Outer Gods through blasphemous rituals. Ordinary people that are drawn into and forced to confront this world of mystery and horror risk not only their physical well-being, but their mental health as well.
