Description Edit | History

Website blurb:
...ADP Systems' Shades of Night scenarios. Featuring four different (but linked) UK-based Classic era adventures.

Readme with enclosed with the collected PDFs:
While rummaging through his Call of Cthulhu materials Tony Hickie came across Shades of Night a group of scenarios he was developing as his next 'ADP package' after releasing the Armstrong Malison, Preacher and the Cross and The Curse.

Shades of Night was designed as a Classic era (1920s) mini-campaign set in South West England (Devon and Cornwall), initiated by events flowing from Sherlock Holmes' investigation into the Hound of the Baskervilles. It is made up of four separate investigations:

Return of the Hound: where the investigators are tasked with saving the Baskerville family from a renewed attack upon them by Rodger Baskerville, who is presumed to have escaped the foul clutches of Grimpen Mire.

Dark Seas, Dark Dreams: again involving Rodger Baskerville, but in grandiose schemes in collusion with Deep Ones off the Cornish coast. It also develops a theory of deep one social organization and biological imperatives that are at odds with other published ideas.

Living Bones: presents the investigators with a new Mythos monster and the machinations of an ally of Rodger's who runs an asylum and has developed advanced mind-control techniques.

Ruins of Golthoth: a supplement that takes dreamers to the ruined city in the wastes of the Cuppar-Nombo Desert, where they will learn that Rodger has plans afoot in the Dreamlands.

There are links that connect all four investigations.

Additional Information from the Introduction

"The order in which the investigators progress through Shades of Night is not vital, although they should complete Return of the Hound before plunging too far into the depths of Dark Seas, Dark Dreams. Similarly, the intricacies of the latter should be all but exhausted before the investigators find themselves enmeshed in the events of The Living Bones."
