The Truth you're after lies before the fall!

Create original adventures for The Legacy of Cthulhu that happen before the apocalypse with this elaborate toolbox!

In a future closer than we imagine, humanity is lost amid conflicts, wars, and diseases in the ceaseless quest for power, bringing disgrace to the whole world. In the end, when it seemed that things could not get any worse, those who had always been waiting revealed themselves in jubilation: Dark Priests and Cultists, scattered all over the world, brought back the Great Old Ones, who completely devastated civilization as we know it. But what happened before the disaster? What facts led the world to this tragedy? Would it be possible to prevent (or at least remedy) such a disgrace?

In the module Before the End, we will have these answers! Each player will play an ordinary person, living their life quietly (or not so much) and who, somehow, came into contact with the secret movement of Dark Priests, Cultists, and horrors that seek to bring the Great Old Ones back. This module works as a toolbox to adapt the core mechanics from The Legacy of Cthulhu to pre-apocalypse settings. You will find usage for currency, housing, enemies, modifiers for specific rules, and a unique set of tiles (including warzone and expedition tiles) that allow deeper customization to the game, even allowing you to adapt the setting to other historical moments – imagine fighting Cthulhu in the old west, cold war or inside a space station!

Features

  • the world as we know it

    Take control of ordinary people who, somehow, end up involved with conspiracies from Dark Priests, Cultists, and supernatural entities working in the shadows to bring the Great Old Ones back.

    Rising against insurmountable odds, your characters can work to delay these sinister plots as long as possible while protecting friends, family, and the rest of the world from the impending destruction brought by the awakening of the cosmic monstrosities.

  • Thousands of new possibilities

    Before the End brings the 5 original tiles from The Legacy of Cthulhu in their pre-apocalypse versions, with new tables of events!

    The module also introduces two special modules: Expedition and Conflict areas. With these, you can run special event tables to add military battles and artifact-chasing adventures to your narratives.

  • A different spin

    With a functioning society, you don't need to worry about upgrading shelters to defend yourself from daily horde attacks.

    However, you need to earn money, follow the law, and live in a society unaware of the arcane horrors that are about to be unleashed. Define your setting, set the appropriate level of technology for its time, and prepare for a much more nuanced and subtle approach to a traditional The Legacy of Cthulhu play session!
