All the Misery, Collected in One Place.
Convicts & Cthulhu is a sourcebook designed to allow Call of Cthulhu Keepers and players to run scenarios and campaigns set in the penal colonies of early Australia. It particularly targets the historical period from 1795 to 1810, a time in which law and order played second-fiddle to greed and corruption. This was the depraved era which led ultimately to Australia’s first (and only) military uprising: the Rum Rebellion!
Since 2016, we have published over 500 pages of material for the Convicts & Cthulhu setting, encompassing source material, scenarios, historical NPC descriptions, prop documents, and even a Campaign frame. This Archive brings together everything we've created to date.
