A Playable Sequel
Beyond the Mountains of Madness is a direct sequel to the short story At The Mountains of Madness, in which an expedition from the Miskatonic University in Arkham discovers proof of ancient, alien life. The investigators of this campaign embark on a new expedition, seeking to finish what the first one started—and uncover the truth of what happened to their predecessors.

What The Critics Say
"Unique. Unprecedented. Jaw-gaping. Immersive. Engrossing. All these, and many more, are adjectives that describe BtMoM, and I am barely doing it justice... Everything is right about this reprint. The price is only USD 10 higher than the price of the 1999 edition, the product is a hardcover instead of a softcover, it has a classy integrated bookmark that you will use to death, a superior layout that is much easier to peruse, and includes the pdf!"
— Antonios S. RPGNet, Review of Beyond the Mountains of Madness (2021 Reprint).
“As far as I am concerned it’s the best “big campaign” ever published for the game… the campaign is absolutely stuffed both with interesting incidents along the way and a hideous discovery at the climax.”
— Refereeing and Reflection, a Cthulhu Railroad On Ice.

This is simply one of the best Call of Cthulhu campaigns ever published. The level of research and detail on the subject is fantastic, producing an epic game that transports the players to another time and place. More than just an historical exercise, BMM captures the sense of magnificent scale found in Lovecraft’s novella, and adds to the Mythos in a way generally only found in the best Mythos fiction. Designed for committed and imaginative players, the campaign unfolds in a slow-burn to eventually reach an apocalyptic pitch, and the mid-game twists are designed to test even the most intrepid group of characters. My only critique in that Beyond the Mountains of Madness has a few Edgar Allan Poe and John Campbell-based side-plots which were clearly left unfinished. Although the main campaign stands squarely on its own, I feel a revised version could develop these intriguing ideas more fully. And a note on the price: Considering that Amazon.com is selling the out-of-print book version of this campaign for $1200, this $20 PDF is quite a reasonable bargain! A note to Keepers downloading this campaign. I ran BMM in 2007–2008, and have placed several suggestions, additions, and expansions online at http://www.shipwrecklibrary.com if you are interested.
