NB This is a readthrough only review.

Arghhhhhhhhh!!!!! Splice the Mainbrace, swab the decks, hoist the colours and throw that Dimensional Shambler in the brig!!! Welcome to the world of The Curse of Black Teeth Keetes. An adventure set in 1933 off the coast of New England featuring zombie pirates, cursed ships and Eldritch Magic. There are plenty of elements drawn from here, with obvious nods to 'The Goonies' 'Pirates of the Carribean' 'King Kong' 'The Mysterious Island' etc etc but that's a good thing (Read the cover people!!! This is Pulp Cthulhu!!!) I do think 30 Dimensional Shamblers might be over-egging the inter-dimensional omlette though, three or four would have been just as effective and would give them more menace, but that's just o'le Nyarlathotep's opinion! Also, with this being a mysterious island adventure featuring 'Jadeite Statues of an Eldritch Underwater Deity' I was anticipating, and a little dissapointed not to find a few Deep Ones thrown into the mix, however, the beauty of Call of Cthulhu is that Keepers are free to adapt a scenario to suit their own preferences, you want Deep Ones? Throw 'em in!!! My last gripe (and really I've griped too much for such a fun scenario) is the cover. The pixilation gives the impression of cheapness and detracts from this really fun scenario. Inside, illustrations have been provided by Jason Booth and work really well with the feel of the scenario. These could have easily been edited together to make a more apt Drew Struzan (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) style cover which I think would sell the scenario better. But again that's just my opinion.

if you are looking for an Island romp with occult magic, zombies and treasure then The Curse of Black Teeth Keetes ticks all those boxes and then some!
