Akenhaten Unveiled

Akhenaten Unveiled
James Austin ($4.00, 35 page PDF)

In the year 1357 BCE, king Amenhotep IV rejected the Egyptian gods. In their place, there would be one new god: one he called Aten. Amenhotep became Akhenaten, the mysterious pariah-king of Egypt. Now it falls to you to kill this wretched heretic and save Egypt, and perhaps history itself, from the Cult of Aten.

Akhenaten Unveiled is a scenario for the Cthulhu Invictus ruleset. Set in 1336 BCE, in ancient Egypt's New Kingdom, the investigators will take on the role of a group of assassins.

The World of Necronomicon - a Zgrozy supplement
Marek Golonka, Piotr Kozioł, Keith Mageau ($1.99, 12 page PDF)

In Lovecraft’s universe of cosmic horror, mysterious vistas or esoteric names like Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, or Yog-Sothoth are the most terrifying to those who already grasp their connection to a greater, inhuman reality. Many of Lovecraft’s heroes gain this grim awareness from one special book – "Kitab Al Azif" by an Arab poet Abdul Alhazred, a tome better known under its translated title "Necronomicon".

As a bonus when you buy this scenario you’ll also receive two audio files with the Polish pronunciation of the word "Zgrozy", one of them calm and one slightly terrified.
