What the Critics say about Dead Light and Other Dark Turns

“A strong, lean collection that provides a lot of high-quality playtime… a definite recommendation for keepers and players across the spectrum of experience.”
— Never Read the Latin, Review – Dead Light and Other Dark Turns.
“STYLE 5, SUBSTANCE 5 – Saturnine Chalice… is one of the best adventures of this length ever written for Call of Cthulhu, and a new favourite to pull on unsuspecting players, especially new ones… The plot will make jaws drop. It is sinister, it is devious, it is complex, it is evil. Dead Light is better than the first time, the six adventure hooks offer interesting ideas, both formulaic and exotic, and… what more does an adventure collection need to do anyway?”
— Antonios S., RPGNet Review – Dead Light and Other Dark Turns.

The future of VTT gameplay rests in Roll20’s capable hands, and I am excited for our partnership with them.”
