Earlier today, Sons of the Singularity launched a Kickstarter to fund a new edition of the well received Call of Cthulhu adventure campaign The Sassoon Files. Set in 1920s Shanghai, the book promises plenty of mystery, mayhem, history, and horror all while doubling the amount of content from the first edition. The project funded nearly as soon as it launched and you can reserve a copy of the 325+ page hardcover (with PDF and all digital rewards) for a $59.00 pledge, or grab just the PDF and digital rewards for a pledge of $24.00, through June 9th. Expected delivery is this October.

About the book:

Horror in the Pearl of the East! A 1920s Shanghai campaign for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game.

The Sassoon Files, Second Edition, is a set of scenarios and campaign resources for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition tabletop role-playing game set in historical 1920s Shanghai; an international city of intrigue, style and violence. 

The Sassoon Files will include the history of Shanghai and some of the primary factions that competed for influence and power: the Communists and Nationalists who played a game of deadly cat and mouse; the Jewish tycoon who provided succor to refugees; the Triad societies who competed to provide vice for the city’s residents; the Japanese who were moving closer to invasion. The Sassoon Files will also explore the secret history of the Mythos, and the local factions who sought to exploit that which could not be fully comprehended.

The bon vivant Victor Sassoon trades correspondence with Doctor Henry Armitage. They share a common goal and modus operandi. Victor fights to keep his empire safe, but he also fights for a Shanghai free from Mythos influence. Victor has gathered around him professors, detectives, criminals and other problem solvers to mount a defense against a rising tide. 

The Sassoon Files, Second Edition, will be released as a PDF and a hardcover book: 

  • 7+ Scenarios, 325+ pages long. 
  • Modular design. Play as one-shot, campaign or integrated into other classic Chaosium campaigns.
  • Lore Sheets provide investigator backgrounds tying them to the setting.
  • 20 pre-generated characters, historically accurate maps, and immersive handouts.
