Not one book but three seperate volumes!!!!!
This sourcebook covers Colonial Lovecraft Country, with a default date of 1750, but discusses events throughout the 18th century. There are chapters on character creation and history, along with brief Lovecraft Country-styled chapters on Arkham, Boston, Dunwich, Kingsport, Providence and Salem, with normal locations and lots and lots of characters, creatures and situations from history, fiction, games, and Lovecraftiana.
There’s also a selection of sample NPCs, a brief overview of other New England colonies (with selected weird sites), an article on creating colonial adventures, a longish discussion of various Mythos entities and how they might be encountered in the setting, ditto for Mythos books, ditto for witches and witchcraft. Two intro adventures round out the book.
The second volume is tentatively entitled The Devil’s Wedding and Other Tales, and includes 8 separate adventures totalling about 100,000 words. The adventures were intended to flesh out the towns and villages discussed in the sourcebook, and include forays to Kingsport, Arkham, Boston, Dogtown, and other sites. There’s a ninth adventure written for this book that might end up as a web freebie or some such.
Volume 3 is a campaign set in the 1770s. The Curwen Conspiracies puts the investigators on the trail of HPL’s infamous necromancer and his even more nefarious colleagues. The action begins in Salem and moves on to Providence, England, and Prague, with a finale in Transylvania.
“if you liked Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, or The Last of the Mohicans, or Brotherhood of the Wolf, or the historical bits of The Case of Charles Dexter Ward, I think you’re gonna love this stuff.” – Kevin Ross
