Miskatonic Monday: the Miskatonic Repository goes Down Darker Trails, and other eldritch places...

Posted by Michael O'Brien on

The Medicine Show is a great example of taking material from one setting and adapting it for another for the Miskatonic Repository. The scenario originally appeared in Tory Wilhelmson's Devil’s Gulch: Basic Roleplaying Adventures in the Weird West supplement. Community content creator Jonathan Meadows got permission from Troy and Chaosium to update this scenario to Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition and move the setting from Devil’s Gulch to the San Rafael setting from Call of Cthulhu's Old West supplement Down Darker Trails.

Dr. Albert’s Astounding Medicine Show is coming to town tomorrow. When you woke up this morning, posters were plastered everywhere advertising his arrival and promising music, dancing girls, feats of strength, and a real wild-man, but the real attraction is Dr. Albert’s Astounding Restorative Elixir that promises to cure anything from gout to small pox in 17 days or less.
