A Brand-New Call of Cthulhu scenario

Featured in this issue is a new Call of Cthulhu scenario by our very own Matt Sanderson, entitled “Educement”.

A group of strangers find themselves caught in a nightmare dreamscape, hunted by something beyond human imagining. Is there any way out or are they doomed to wander eternally in a shifting world of madness?

The cover comes from our good friend John Sumrow, whose work has graced many previous Tomes. We also have illustrations from some favourite eldritch artists, including Evan Dorkin, Daniel Harila, Nefeli Mandilaras, Jason Shepherd and Freya Stack.
