"Cthulhu Dark Ages" continues Lovecraft's sinister tradition of men and women struggling against the dark forces of the Cthulhu Mythos, but in a time nearly one thousand years before Lovecraft's birth. "Cthulhu Dark Ages" is a complete roleplaying game using Chaosium's classic "Basic Roleplaying" System.
[CALL OF CTHULHU ROLEPLAYING] 950 A.D. -- The world is torn apart. Empires and kingdoms have endured two centuries of invasions, and now warlords fight over the remains like wild dogs. The clergy is weak and morally depraved, cities are depopulated, trade is stagnant, and violence reigns everywhere. History is coming into the Sixth Age of humankind, the ultimate age before the end of the world.The Byzantine Theodoras Philetas translated the "Al Azif" into Greek, and renames it the "Necronomicon." It will take a century before that blasphemous tome is finally condemned, and most copies destroyed.
