Miskatonic University...that renowned institution of higher learning made famous (or infamous) in the tales of the Cthulhu Mythos by H.P. Lovecraft and others, comes to life in this fantastic supplement for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game from Chaosium. Within these pages you'll find everything you'll need to attend, work at, or investigate the hallowed and haunted halls of Miskatonic. This is without a doubt a long awaited supplement for this horror RPG. The designers of this supplement have brought Miskatonic to life and created a setting that will excite players for a long time.

The first chapter begins with a lengthy history of the university and its founding in mysterious Arkham, MA, in 1690. Noted is the role that the town of Arkham played in the witchcraft hysteria of 1692 as some residents fled Salem to come to Arkham. Even one of Miskatonic's founders would be accused of witchcraft. Miskatonic's history and expansion is traced from its founding right up through the 20th century. A campus guide and detailed map notes the locations of all the buildings on campus including the dilapidated "Witch House" at 197 E. Pickman St. There is a lengthy section on Orne Library, one of the most important buildings, which provides maps of each floor, profiles of employees and frequent visitors as well as the noted collections housed there. These include some of the most famous tomes of dark lore in the world including The Book of Eibon, the Malleus Maleificarum (Hammer of the Witches), Nameless Cults, and, of course, the Necronomicon. Stats are provided for each book that detail sanity checks for reading them, weeks to study, and the spells/benefits gained once the book has been completed.

Thinking of attending or working at Miskatonic?

The Miskatonic University sourcebook is a VERY useful item for anyone who plays Call of Cthulhu and wants an 'intellectual' character. I know that the information provided on Lovecraft's signature school provided a wealth of background for my CoC investigators. This book, combined with HP Lovecraft's Arkham (ASIN 1568821654), provides all the information you need to adventure in the shadow haunted city of Arkham.

Don't let the modern clothes on the dude on the cover fool you-- this is 1920s M.U. during its most fun period. Lots of great scenarios and maps to enhance your RPG experience.

Clocking in at well over 200 pages, Miskatonic University is one of the "must have" supplements for Call of Cthulhu. Countless non-player characters, plot seeds, locations along with an extensive history of this (in)famous college make it useful for any classic-era CoC game. Natrually, it lends itself well to running a campaign based around a group of characters who are attending Miskatonic as students and gives a remarkable level of detail regarding life on campus.

So whether your characters are heading to the famous Orne Library for research, taking a few classes to polish up their education, or joining professors and explorers on one of the famous Miskatonic University expeditions, this supplement has got something of use for your Call of Cthulhu campaign. You'd be downright mad not to pick it up.
