The True Housewives of Arkham


A sizzling one-shot of glamour, gossip and Great Old Ones!

In this tongue-in-cheek modern day oneshot for Call of Cthulhu, players take on the roles of the 'True Housewives" of Arkham: glamorous, wealthy and infamous members of the city's giltterati.

During the filming of the first season of a reality television series, the housewives find themselves drawn into a nefarious scheme that challenges everything they thought they knew...

Fortunately their fierceness is still intact, and together they will prove more than a match for anything the Mythos can throw their way... as long as they can manage not to fall out with each other.


  • Five pre-generated 'housewife' characters, each with their own backstories, skills and secrets (separate pregen file included in purchase)
  • New skills and attributes, representing the fickle nature of fame and the housewives' relationships with each other
  • New rules for 'social situations', where the housewives can Throw ShadeDeflect and Stay In Lane against each other using unique PvP style mechanics
  • A plot that is an affectionate parody of the tropes of reality TV shows set against a ticking clock of impending doom
  • New monsters, including possessed dresses, killer heels and the terrifying Director
  • ...and Mr Chow Wow, the ill-tempered handbag dog

Can your players stop bickering long enough to save the world?

Play to find out..

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.
