Call of Cthulhu: Alone Against the Tide


A solo play Call of Cthulhu mini campaign. No Keeper is needed as you guide yourself through the adventure.

What has Professor Harris’ research got to do with the strange green fog enveloping the town? Who are the menacing, dark-suited men that arrived on the ferry with your investigator? And, why is a Buddhist monk visiting Esbury, a town more used to entertaining New England’s wealthy elite?

Take on the role of an investigator traveling to a remote lakeside town where strange things are happening. Decide your path through the story, and the fate of the citizens of Esbury!

For all its scenic beauty and charm, Esbury is a dangerous place, and there is every chance that your investigator could die as the events of Alone Against the Tide unfold. Thankfully though, you can attempt this scenario as many times as you want to. You can also choose a different investigator (or create a new one) each time you play to help you explore the various challenges and pathways the story has to offer. So what are you waiting for? Esbury's fate is in your hands!

Alone Against The Tide is a solo scenario. All you need is this book, and your copy of the Call of Cthulhu Rulebook or the Call of Cthulhu Starter Setsome dice and pencils, and you’re ready to begin your horrific trip to the lakeside town in Massachusetts!
