Does Love Forgive? – a special surprise release from Chaosium for Gen Con 2020!

Does Love Forgive? is a collection of two special scenarios for Call of Cthulhu for one Keeper and one player. Great for a fun evening of gaming for two people. And perfect if you’re currently in lockdown or socially isolating with a friend or loved one.

Does Love Forgive? is a collection of two special scenarios for Call of Cthulhu originally released in Poland by Black Monk Games on February 14th, 2020. Usually, Call of Cthulhu is played with one Keeper and between four to six investigators. Sometimes, for any number of reasons, it can be hard to get such a large group of players together, so the scenarios in this collection have been specifically designed for just two people: one Keeper and one player.

Each of the standalone scenarios—Love You to Death and Mask of Desire—can be played over the course of one session and are suitable for all levels of Keeper and player experience. Advice is provided on how to support one-to-one play, as well as on how to create a bespoke investigator for each scenario or incorporate an existing investigator, if desired.Available now in PDF from Chaosium* and DriveThruRPG.

*purchase the PDF direct from Chaosium and you receive the full cost of the PDF off the printed version, which will be out later this year.

Love You to Death

Chicago: February 15th, 1929. It’s a cold winter’s day when the investigator’s good friend Hattie May appears in their office at the detective agency. Her beloved pet dog, Highball, is currently scheduled to be destroyed later today and she needs the investigator’s help getting him back from the Chicago PD. It doesn’t sound like too difficult task, does it—so how hard could it be?

Mask of Desire

New York: September, 1932. The investigator, together with their two close friends Anna Konrad and Lucas Reston, has been invited to a party at wealthy—and notorious—socialite Madame de Tisson’s swanky apartment on the Upper West Side. But both Anna and Lucas are distracted by Anna’s audition tomorrow for Nancy Turner, the famous jazz orchestra conductor. What is the link between that and the mysterious parcel that arrives the next day at the investigator’s apartment? And why do so many people seem to be interested in the contents of
that box?

Both scenarios are perfect for a quiet evening of gaming for two people and require either the Call of Cthulhu Starter Set or the Call of Cthulhu: Keeper Rulebook to play.
