Back Cover Text

A Full-Length Campaign, Five More Heart-Pounding Adventures, and a Full-Color Mythos Gallery! The Rise of Forgotten R'lyeh. Cthulhu sleeps in the corpse city of R'lyeh. Through unblinking eyes he has watched mountains grow and empires rise and fall. He has lain quiet, unmoving. Now he stirs. He senses that the stars are once again converging into their proper formations. His worshippers have been plotting for the day when their mighty lord would once again walk the earth. This day is now! CTHULHU CLASSICS is a collection of the most terrifying adventures for the Call of Cthulhu game that have ever been published. The centerpiece of this book is Shadows of Yog-Sothoth, a monumental seven-part campaign. Shadows reveals details of the Silver Twilight, an international organization dedicated to prematurely forcing the rise of R’lyeh and the release of dread Cthulhu. Five additional tales of terror explore the impact of the Mythos on the natural world. Finally, a gallery of full-color plates vividly depict the Mythos menace and those who understand too deeply its secrets.
