The Hound of Shadow

Written 1989.
Runs on:

Notes: Includes Manual, reference card and disks.

Comments: It is about a guy who gets a curse on him and discovers more and more of the hideous lore and magic that is now on his back. It is fairly related to H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

Some of the people involved in making this game were also involved in creating "Daughter of Serpents" by Millenium, a graphic rpg/adventure also based on Lovecraft's works.

Package blurb:

The Hound of Shadowis set in England in the 1920's, a country recovering from the ravages of the Great War, when extremes of wealth and poverty rubbed shoulders, when it was fashionable to cultivate an interest in spiritualism and magic. In the course of the game you become involved with murder, revenge, the occult, daemonic possession and other horrors that should have died a long time ago. You will discover many of the awful things that lurk behind a seemingly humdrum existence, and learn through bitter experience that ignorance really can be bliss.

The Hound of Shadow uses the Timeline role-playing system to create a Cthulhu Mythos story, inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft and set in the 1920s.

The Daughter of Serpents

Written 1992.

Adventureland was created by Hans Persson and is now maintained by Stefan Meier.
