THE FATHOMLESS SLEEP

How exactly did fast-living society girl Helen Deakin come down with a case of catatonia? Her sultry sister pays you, hard-boiled private detective Dex Raymond, to find out. Prepare yourself to untangle a web of blackmail, organized crime, and weird mysticism in 1930s Los Angeles.


Cthulhu Confidential is a roleplaying game designed for one player and one game master. It's powered by the GUMSHOE One-2-One game system which retunes, rebuilds, and re-imagines the acclaimed GUMSHOE investigative rules set, as seen in such hit roleplaying games as Trail of Cthulhu and Night's Black Agents, for one player and one GM. Together, you create a story that evokes the classic solo protagonist mystery format.

While Cthulhu Confidential is designed for a single player, I am willing to run multiple sessions of this scenario in parallel for as many as 3 players if there is sufficient interest. All I ask is that you try to post at least once per day if possible (and feel free to post as often as you like — I should be able to keep up with you).

No prior system knowledge is required. Cthulhu Confidential is a very rules-light game and I will explain everything you need to know. A pre-generated character well-suited to this scenario is provided, but if you’d like to tweak your character to personalize it in any way, you're welcome to do so.

Trigger warning: The Fathomless Sleep is a 1930s film noir scenario involving mature themes and characters with antiquated views on race and gender. There's nothing too intense here, but certain elements could potentially be offensive to some players.

Re: [Recruiting] Cthulhu Confidential: The Fathomless Sleep
Love the Mythos. Played a little of Call of Cthulhu, but never Cthulhu Confidential. If you have a spot still open, I’d be happy to join in! sauron goo

Re: [Recruiting] Cthulhu Confidential: The Fathomless Sleep
I'd love to give it a try should you still have a free spot. I did play CoC and read (most of) Lovecraft's books, so I'm rather familiar with the setting. Havn't played CC though.

I will create separate session threads for each player and post them here shortly.

Mark, no worries at all about your camping trip -- we'll do whatever we can before you leave and pick up when you get back!

All, I've created the threads but I put them in the wrong place -- waiting for an admin to move them and then I'll link them for you here.
