Man Dies Three Times in One Night!
A puzzling headline beings a front-page article found in the Times of London. Three men, all identical in identification, were found dead in the same room of the Chelsea Arms Hotel. All were dispatched in a similar manner - stabbed through the heart. Then the home of a valued friend burns to the ground, severely injuring him in the process. An odd summons, a surreptitious meeting, and a thousand-mile journey begin on the legendary rail service carrying the investigators to Constantinople, the Gateway of the Orient.
Horror on the Orient Express contains a massive and legendary campaign, of up to nineteen adventures, for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. Beginning in 1920s London, the investigators journey to Paris and thence to the ancient city of Constantinople. With luck, they also return home.
Optional episodes are set in ancient times or special places (Roman era, Dark Ages, Gaslight Era, and the Dreamlands), so that the players can experience the founding, creation, and discovery of crucial elements of this campaign. Also included is a modern-day coda to the storyline, an alternate ending for those wishing for a shorter campaign, and a built-in survival guide to aid beleaguered investigators.
This Two-Volume Hardcover book set includes the complete campaign & player handouts, as well as a full-color Poster Map (24" x 18"). The player handouts are located at the back of each book. They are also available for download from the publisher's site.
A copy of the Call of Cthulhu 7E rulebook is necessary to use the contents of these books.
