Call of Cthulhu is a tabletop RPG that has been gaining in popularity as we saw in the Q3 2019 report from The Orr Group. If you’ve been enjoying this game yourself, or even if you’re wanting to jump in for the first time, you’ll be excited to learn Chaosium is launching Harlem Unbound 2nd Edition. This edition brings new areas, scenarios, and even Mythos monsters to the table.
New York City.
Prohibition is in full swing and bootleggers are living high. African-Americans flee the oppressive South for greener pastures, creating a new culture in Harlem. The music of Fats Waller and Duke Ellington pours out of the city’s windows, while women in stylish skirts and silk stockings, and men in white gloves and Chesterfield coats crowd the sidewalks. There’s a feeling of possibility in the air, like never before.
But, even in this land of promise, Harlem is a powder keg, ready to explode. While classes and cultures collide, the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos lurk beneath the streets, creeping through dark alleys and hidden doorways to infect the hopes and aspirations of the unwary.
Can you hold it together and keep the terrors at bay for one more song?
