Miskatonic Monday #84: the unspeakable and blasphemous Zgrozy collection

Posted by Michael O'Brien on 9th Oct 2023

Zgrozy from Beyond anthology

Zgrozy started in Poland and quickly became very popular both there and in the English-speaking Call of Cthulhu community, having released over 30 supplements—scenarios, bestiaries, and more—on the Miskatonic Repository, Chaosium's platform for independent Call of Cthulhu creators at DriveThruRPG. 

The Zgrozy: From Beyond anthology contains eight Call of Cthulhu scenarios from the well-received series. It includes Shepherd of Moths, Future Echoes, The Vernissage, A Greater Goal, Noctilline, Lords by Birthright, An Inner Call, and The Mist Sower. The anthology also includes two new guides: Let Cthulhu Happen!, about running non-linear Call of Cthulhu games, and Campaigns From Beyond, about combining Zgrozy scenarios into a campaign. It is available in PDF, and Standard and Premium POD.

“Zgrozy” is a slightly archaic Polish word for “Horrors” or “Terrors.” Following advice from English-speaking Call of Cthulhu fans, the team decided to keep the original title for foreign releases, since it sounds suitably unspeakable and blasphemous to non-Polish ears.

To find out more about Zgrozy, visit their Facebook page or see their other English releases.
