Convicts & Cthulhu Musters

C&C Musters are small self-contained additions to the Convicts & Cthulhu setting. The series looks at real-life historical characters from the convict era in New South Wales and Van Diemen’s Land, through the lens of the Cthulhu Mythos. Each considers a historical personage in terms useful in a Convicts & Cthulhu campaign, either as an NPC ally, enemy, or patron–or even as a player character investigator. Evocative and fleshed out characters assist Gamemasters by triggering possible story seeds, or act as a focal point for connections with other characters such as family or business associates.
