What The Critics Say

  • "A splendid 1930s campaign splicing some canonical locations with the latest and greatest of 7th edition goodness... An unexpected addition to the Chaosium canon, but a very worthwhile and rewarding one."

    — Paul St John MacIntosh, RPGNet Review of A Time to Harvest.

  • "This is a magnificent campaign, full of epic detail and executed to perfection. Call of Cthulhu fans should definitely have a look."

    — M.T. Black, Twitter Review.

    Good Scenario, however the latest revision has some errors

    Posted by Herbert Shaw on 16th Jan 2022

    I picked up the 1.10 version of the PDF. There are some errors noting sections on certain page numbers which are incorrect. For instance, on page 209, towards the end of the fourth(?) paragraph, it writes: " .. see The Underground River, page 209, for what happens next." Well, you are on page 209, and the section it is actually referring to is on page 217. Other than tings like this in the PDF, the scenario is running pretty well, and my players are scrambling for their lives.

    An excellent campaign - lots of possibilities

    Posted by Morgan Hua on 11th Oct 2021

    I've run this 3 times with different groups. This is a pretty solid campaign. Chapter 1 has a great twist that works very well and Chapter 2 flows well from Chapter 1. Chapter 3 can be expanded with other scenarios as that can become a basis for another series of scenarios for experienced investigators. Chapter 4 & 5 brings the campaign to a conclusion, finishing the events started in Chapters 1 & 2. Chapter 6 is an optional scenario that can be slotted in if the PCs go through a gate (actually pretty fun, but maybe slightly out of place in tone for the campaign). The number and variety of NPCs in this campaign makes this a very fun sandbox. Student hijinks in Chapter 1 & 2 is the icing on the cake in this campaign. The illustrations in this is very evocative. The original organized play had few illustrations and had mainly handouts and maps. This has been rectified with additional art. The Miskatonic University setting can be used as a basis for future campaigns set on campus such as Crimson Letters in the core book. I used this plus the Miskatonic University book as a basis for a campaign in Arkham, relocating various published scenarios to this locale. The FOC HQ can be a launching point for various scenarios the Keeper may want to send PCs on. They'll be veteran investigators with deep pockets. But I wouldn't do too many scenarios here as you want the PCs from Chapter 1&2 to experience Chapters 4&5. But nothing prevents the PCs from continuing to work for FOC after Chapter 5.
