Alone Against the Flames (BRP)
n Introductory Solitaire Adventure for Call of Cthulhu
This is a solo adventure for the Call of Cthulhu game. It is a horror story set in the 1920s where you are the main character¸ and your choices determine the outcome. It is also designed to lead you through the basic rules of the game in a gradual and entertaining fashion. Although most such adventures are played with your friends¸ this one is just for you.
Before you begin to play¸ make sure you have a copy of the Call of Cthulhu Seventh Edition Quick-Start Rules (download the free Call of Cthulhu Quick-Start Rules ). You'll also need a pencil¸ an eraser¸ and some roleplaying dice.
You don't need to read the rules before you start playing. Just settle in a comfortable chair before a roaring fire. Then read on and follow the instructions.
…On second thought¸ don't sit too close to the fire.
