About the adventure:
A 1990s solo Call of Cthulhu adventure!
Alex and Charlie believe that a secluded weekend getaway in the Black Hills of South Dakota is just what they need to reinvigorate their marriage—but older and darker things than broken hearts exist in the forgotten places of the world.
Will they survive, alone against the static?
Set in the Dakota Black Hills in the early 1990s, Alone Against The Static is designed for a single player—no Keeper required! You will choose to play as either Alex or Charlie, each of which have their own strengths, weaknesses, and choices to make. No two playthroughs will be the same!
Alone Against The Static introduces The Log Sheet to the world of solo Call of Cthulhu play. Track choices you make, secrets you discover, and items you’ll find that aid (or hinder) your adventure with a separate sheet designed with spoiler-free text.
The Log Sheet can also be used as a list of achievements—can you unlock everything there is to discover?
Included in Alone Against The Static is a new Mythos entity, detailed for use in your own Call of Cthulhu scenarios. You can expand the experience beyond solo play by taking this entity into scenarios of your own making, perhaps even using Alone Against The Static as a prelude for your players!
