A Severn Valley Sourcebook and Open Campaign
"The castle came into view as I turned the corner and left behind me a row of untenanted cottages. It was set on the crest of a hill, three walls still standing, though the roof had long ago collapsed. A lone tower stood like a charred finger against the pale sky, and I momentarily wondered if this were the tower around whose window bats had clustered so long ago."
— Ramsey Campbell, "The Room in the Castle."
This large, profusely illustrated book collects nearly everything known about the Lovecraftian-style universe which famous horror author Ramsey Campbell set in England's West Country. Reference chapters include Books and Artifacts, Cults, a lengthy Denizens chapter, Magic, and orientation material for Britain and the U.K., and for Campbell Country itself—the Severn Valley.
The eight scenarios are organized into a loose campaign which can be followed or not, as the keeper wishes. Among the places visited are Brichester, Mercy Hill, Lower Brichester, Lake Brichester, Temphill, Severnford, and of course Goatswood.
