Campaign of the Month: November 2010
Cthulhu Supremus Est
No acknowledgments page for a Call of Cthulhu campaign can start anywhere but with the author that inspired the game. Many seasoned role-players have found Call of Cthulhu as a result of reading H.P. Lovecraft’s work. I found Lovecraft’s work as a result of playing Call of Cthulhu. While his prose can be clunky, his personal views deplorable, and his incessant use of the words eldritch and cyclopean maddening, Lovecraft was a master of mood and the father of modern horror.
Furthermore, a special acknowledgement should be given to Chaosium, Sandy Petersen, Lynn Willis, and the countless contributors who have written the core rules, supplements, and scenarios for Call of Cthulhu.
The information contained throughout this campaign site has been supplemented by many Chaosium, Inc. Rulebooks and Supplements. Most notably:
- Call of Cthulhu Rulebook
- 1920’s Investigator’s Companion
- H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham
- H.P. Lovecraft’s Kingsport
- Secrets of New York

The images that populate this campaign site were downloaded using Google Images. In most cases, I’ve attempted to use stock photos and other public domain images. In my haste, I did not write down URLs, so I cannot give clear credit to the site I copied the image from. When time permits, I will attempt to retrace my cyber-steps and assign credit where credit is due. Any infringement of copyrights is wholly unintentional; I will credit or remove any copyrighted images at the request of the rightful owner.
Some of the famous individuals whose likenesses are moonlighting as investigators and NPCs in my universe are: Theda Bara, Camillo Berneri, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack Dragna, Sergei Eisenstein, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., F. Scott Fitzgerald (twice!), Errol Flynn, Eileen Gray, Fletcher Henderson, George E. Lee, Ho Chi Mihn, Maureen O’Hara, Vladimir Rosing, Erwin Schrödinger, Benjamin Siegel, and William Butler Yeats. There may be more, but TinEye is currently unable to accommodate.
Last but not least, I would like to thank the Obsidian Portal members who have supplied the helpful tips, useful tools, and textile coding used to help build my campaign page, particularly gnunn and ChainsawXIV, who have never met a coding question they couldn’t answer. You’ve helped a complete newbie look like he knows what he’s doing.
