Tsavo translates to “a place of slaughter.”

Welcome to 1898 Kenya.

The British are building a railway bridge over the River Tsavo to solidify their position of trade and wealth in the region. The Investigators serve as leaders to the project. In addition to social dissonance and illness within the camp, a pair of man-eating lions known as “The Ghost” and “The Darkness” are stalking and brutally killing members of the construction crew. 

What happened to those 30 crewmen that disappeared overnight?

Who, or what, sent the lions into camp?

The Investigators must find a way to stop the man-eaters before the project is abandoned entirely. Failure is not an option as the success and perseverance of the British Empire rests upon their shoulders.

We invite you to experience this visceral 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu Scenario. This one-shot scenario plays well in both convention and home settings. Sorrow in Tsavo’s playstyle is story driven, sandbox, and combat light.


What’s Included?

- A 43-page fully illustrated and deadly scenario (extensively playtested)

 - Six pre-generated characters + backgrounds

- Two new Mythos Creatures   

- 10 Handouts (including a color map of the Sorrow in Tsavo Camp, character secrets, etc.)

- A beautifully formatted PDF with easy to navigate hyperlinks

- Direct notes/suggestions from the author

A film starring Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas, a book by Dr Bruce Patterson, and the actual lions are at the Chicago Natural History Museum. Based loosely on actual events in 1898.

All true statements! However, you and I both know that those horrific Lovecraftian twists never make it into the history books. :-) Thank you for your support. It really means a lot!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
