The death of a brilliant artist summons the investigators to Leningrad, setting them in pursuit of a mystery older than Russia herself. But when each secret revealed brings the investigators closer to madness, is the truth worth the price?
The trail of clues takes them from the dachas of the Orkonov Estate to the Revolution Hospital and State Museum of Leningrad, and finally to the wilds of the frozen forests, where the investigators are faced with a terrifying puzzle unlike any other.
Set throughout the globe and torn from the pages of the hidden history of the world, Age of Cthulhu adventures bring new secrets and mind-bending horrors to your 1920's Call of Cthulhu game. Each adventure comes with copious player handouts, detailed maps, and pre-generated investigators ready to risk their lives and their sanity to confront the horrors of an uncaring universe.
Age of Cthulhu adventures include many of the classic elements of Call of Cthulhu: action, investigation, and a forbidding sense of horror. Though the adventures utilize real locations and historical events, Age of Cthulhu is first and foremost dedicated to exploring the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos, and to bringing the excitement of heroic pulp-themed adventure to your gaming table. So dim the lights, load your trusty sidearm, and prepare to venture into the unknown...
- Living Dice: 'The handouts are well done, and very interesting. And of course, very Cthulhuesque. One is particularly creepy. You will know when you see it.'
- Flames Rising: 'There is significant attention to the details of the time period and setting for history buffs; however, the adventure isn't bogged down with historical minutiae. The author's choice in Mythos entities (and other supernatural beings) are varied and could off-set most hardened gamers.'
- Grubb Street: 'Shadows of Leningrad is an improvement over previous entries and the best of the series so far from Goodman Games. It combined both cthulhian menace with exotic location and a dash of historical relevance.'
- RPG Geek: 'All in all a very successful product. Highly recommended for Pulp Cthulhu groups, but even purist Call of Cthulhu Keepers should look at Shadows of Leningrad.'
