Beginning to Look a Lot Like Yithmas

Just in time for Yithmas, we are delighted to announce the release of a FREE (actually PWYW, but free is fine) winter-themed[*] Cthulhu Eternal scenario PDF by Paul StJohn Mackintosh. “The White War” is a short but eventful World War 1 scenario set amid the icy and treacherous fighting that took place high up in the Italian Alps. Protagonists take on the roles of a Italian patrol tasked with venturing into the No Man’s Land created by the sudden and perplexing retreat of the Austrian enemy forces. Weirder still is the fact that the abandonment of this area comes just after a night when unexplained explosions and gunfire were heard coming from the region.

What would make the Austrian forces give up valuable (and very defensible) territory? What caused the weird nocturnal sounds? And … is this all some kind of elaborate trap? The lucky Protagonists have been “volunteered” to find answers to these questions, or die trying. Hopefully they will make it back safe and sound (and sane) to share in the Christmas Pannetone!

This 14-page PDF, available right now,  is our lucky THIRTEENTH release in the Cthulhu Eternal line for this year — which is actually the most titles we’ve EVER released in a calendar year (explaining why we’re all a bit exhausted). We hope that blog readers — who number among out best and most cherished supporters — will grab this freebie and consider giving it a spin whenever they need a one-shot to fill in a game session. If you haven’t ever picked up any of our paid Cthulhu Eternal scenario releases, this free adventure can also give you a chance to sample our production values and get a sense for the kind of thing we’re putting out across several different eras of Lovecraftian nightmares.

As always, if you do anything amazing with this scenario please do let us know (or review it on DTRPG). Word of mouth is our best (only?) marketing tool, so anything you do to share your experiences with Cthulhu Eternal is absolutely doing us a big favour.

Thanks to everyone who has supported us in 2023 (and earlier) — we still have a big pile of cool scenarios we’d like to release: here’s hoping we can keep up this tempo of releases into the new year.

[*] And yes, I am very well aware of the fact that winter and Christmas are only linked ideas in the Northern Hemisphere (where I am not), but the opportunity to release this awesome adventure as a gift of sorts to our very loyal readers was just too good to pass up.
