You may not be aware, but the Call of Cthulhu RPG is immensely popular in Japan, with the rules published under license by our friends Arclight outselling versions in any other language. So we're excited to receive our first contribution in Japanese to the Miskatonic Repository. Even better, it comes with an English language version of the scenario!
山里にて(At the Mountain Village) is a 1-2 hour beginner-friendly scenario for 1 to 2 players. It is set in the 1920's in in a small village in Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan.
The scenario takes place during the winter, as powdered snow gently engulfs the surroundings. The Investigators receive a letter from their common friend, Akira Kawakami, informing them of mysterious earthquakes around the village. As the Investigators are about to approach the village, they are assaulted by a sudden earthquake. Will the Investigators be able to find the cause of the Earthquake and save the village?
$3.64/ 400¥ - features Japanese version (6th) and English version (7th).
