Two Adventures Concerning One Disturbing Institution
When you think of a traditional game of Call of Cthulhu one element probably comes to mind – Sanity Checks. Beginning the scenario with a sound mind, characters progressively find themselves face to face with unspeakable terror that cause them to test their sanity. If their mind fails them, their characters become mentally unstable.
Ravenstone Sanitarium offers an alternative style of play to Call of Cthulhu. They will have control of three or four very different characters. Each character represents a different part of the main character’s mind due to multiple personality disorder.
After players make a Sanity check, a Personality Check is made as well. This decides which personality has suddenly taken control of the body. At that point, the players set aside their current character sheet and pick up the new character sheet.
The first of two scenarios will place the players in the heart of a mental hospital having lost all memory of who they are or where they came from. They must investigate the dark and very disturbing facility to discover who they are, but they may accidently uncover the truth behind Ravenstone as well.
MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY LIBRARY ASSOCIATION monographs are longer works by one or more authors on a subject of import to Call of Cthulhu roleplayers. On these products the author has also fulfilled the functions of editor and layout artist; we at Chaosium have done little in the way of editorial. We do provide a cover illustration. Through the publication of monographs we can offer our most loyal fans more information more easily, and evaluate the potential of these works for eventual release to the wholesale market.
