The Wombwell Stones
The Wombwell Stones is the second scenario in the Very British Horror classic 1920s Call of Cthulhu campaign.
Set in York in 1921¸ the investigators follow a variety of leads to discover the fate of a woman who disappeared some months before the happenings in the first scenario in the series¸ The Folly of Ponsonby Wild. Soon they are embroiled in a plot involving alien artefacts¸ an ancient temple beneath the city¸ and a dastardly plot to bring ruin to the British Regime. In a desperate race against time¸ the investigators must clear York Minster of the terrible threat hiding within¸ and prevent disaster. Can they save King George V from assassination? Or will the dreaded Cult of P'Nath move one step further towards their dark goals?
22 pages of scenario information¸ 13 pages of high quality handouts and maps¸ and five pre-generated characters are included in the book¸ as well as a campaign overview to give the Keeper an understanding of where this scenario fits into the overarching plot. The other Scenarios in the series include The Folly of Ponsonby Wild (available here )¸ The Secret of Stourgate and The Veil of P'Nath (both of these available soon!)
The scenario works best if it follows The Folly of Ponsonby-Wild¸ but included in the book is a section on how to modify it to run as either a stand alone episode or as part of your own ongoing game.
