Arkady is very troubled man. His best friend Dmitri has been dangerously outspoken this week. Their last conversation haunts him. "Secrets. So many secrets. The Revolution promised us a world of equality where we all work for the common cause. But there are too many secrets. His name was Koba before. Did you know that? Now we call him Stalin. 'Man of steel' is what it means. Why did he change it? Another secret the party wishes to keep silent." If anyone overheard Dmitri speaking like this it could mean imprisonment, or worse, for both of them.
Now they have become separated while pursuing a suspect through the frozen streets of Moscow. Moments ago he heard his comrade screaming nearby. His feet nearly slide out from under him as he careens into an alley. There his friend stands unnaturally still surrounded by blood-stained snow. "Dmitri! What is wrong?" he gasps for breath, closing the distance between them. Suddenly his friend starts to spasm, to change. New limbs burst from the body and the thing that was once his friend lumbers forward. Arkady raises his weapon as his mind reels in terror. This cannot be happening.
Shadows of Moscow is a Call of Cthulhu adventure set in late 1930's Russia under the iron fisted control of Joseph Stalin. While the great purge known as the Terror happens all around them, several "agents" of the state must investigate a strange murder in the frozen rail yards of Moscow. Originally written for the Cthulhu Masters Tournament, Shadows of Moscow comes supplied with six pre-generated characters for this cruel and mind bending scenario.
