The Brazen Head: experience the terror of the classic Call of Cthulhu scenario, 'The Auction', through an all-new lens!

Brazen Head

The Brazen Head is one of the eldritch items up for bidding in the classic Call of Cthulhu scenario 'The Auction'. It is rumoured to be a powerful Mythos artefact, said to be able to answer questions put to it – if the right ritual is performed. 

'The Auction' is from The Asylum, which is returning to print as part of the Call of Cthulhu Classic Kickstarter, and will be available in general release in May.

You can also see the Brazen Head in the splendidly authentic auction catalogue our friends H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society have created, as part of their Call of Cthulhu Classic Gamer Prop Set (which opened for pre-orders yesterday)...

... and now, thanks to our friends at TYPE40, you and your players can also experience the Brazen Head through an all-new lens, as a 3D digital prop!
