Taking its cues from the Kalevala, The Dark Forest is a 7th edition Call of Cthulhu scenario steeped in Finnish mythology and set in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Investigators will have to stop an ancient evil if they’re to survive.
Suitable for 4+ investigators and featuring corrupt politicians, missing children, a private for-profit prison, Finnish mythology, and an isolated dairy farm.
This Modern Era scenario is suitable for two to six players. With some modification, the number of players can easily be scaled, but due to some of the settings and themes contained herein, moving it to a different era of play may take a considerable amount of work, but changing the location shouldn’t present a Keeper with any difficulties.
The scenario deals with extremely mature themes including the horror of sexual abuse. While this is handled as an "off screen" past event, it is one of the driving facets of an NPC's character.
As such, please be aware that some of the themes are quite mature and are suitable for adult gamers only. It is required that you clear such subjects with your players first, before playing, and away from the table in order to not cause distress.
