Call of Cthulhu Terror Paths is a tabletop cooperative experience for several players. All players take on the role of Investigators, who work together as a team. The game comes with two maps, each with wildly different scenarios. Coming in 2022.
Sandy thought you might enjoy a peek at the various scenarios that he designed for Terror Paths, his upcoming cooperative Call of Cthulhu board game. We’re also including his adventure gameplay notes.
Today’s scenario: Attack of the Ancients
Scenario: Attack of the Ancients
Carl Stanford phones you in a panic. “The ancients! They’ve risen up. Something we did must have angered …”
He cuts off, abruptly. You’ve lost your phone service. You drive to the police station to see that it is filled with blue plasma horrors, distracting and maddening the officers. All throughout town are un-men and atom-powered undead. Perhaps the Lodge has the secret to stopping this invasion? You’d better find out quickly. You drive to the Lodge and rush in through the front door.
Sandy’s Gameplay Notes
The climactic scenario of the Carl Stanford at Bay campaign – it’s war! The Ancients have invaded the Lodge from their caverns and seek to wipe out the entire organization. You must rescue trapped Lodge members and find out how to stall the invasion.
Once you do, you leave the Lodge and enter the caverns themselves, picking your way through Ancient defenses and traps until you find the Ancient super-weapon, an atomic bomb. Your search needs to reveal how to set it off, after which you have a countdown to escape the caverns before it goes off – sealing the entrance to the Ancients’ Cave.
