It's Miskatonic Monday, so here is the latest selection of new titles in the Miskatonic Repository, our community content platform for independent Call of Cthulhu creators at DriveThruRPG!

Sorrow in Tsavo
Bridgett Jeffries ($2.99, 43 page PDF)

Welcome to 1898 Kenya. The British are building a railway bridge over the River Tsavo to solidify their position of trade and wealth in the region. The Investigators serve as leaders to the project. In addition to social dissonance and illness within the camp, a pair of man-eating lions known as “The Ghost” and “The Darkness” are stalking and brutally killing members of the construction crew. What happened to those 30 crewmen that disappeared overnight? Who, or what, sent the lions into camp?

Sorrow in Tsavo’s play style is story driven, sandbox, and combat light.

The Witches of Navarre
Paul Zane and Amy Zane ($10.00, 30 page PDF)

The Witches of Navarre takes place in 17th Century Spain following events arising from theBasque Witch Trials of 1609. In 1611, Alonso de Salazar Frías is instructed by the Holy Office of the Inquisition to further investigate the accusations of witchcraft within the communities of Navarre. His mission is to interrogate alleged witches and determine if their statements tally. In January 1612, Salazar attests to the Grand Inquisitor "I have not found [any proof&91; that [even&91; one act of witchcraft has actually taken place…” though the truth that the players, Salazar’s investigative team, uncover in 1611 is far more malevolent than he would ever say.

For the Love Of...
Jon Hook ($3.00, 24 page PDF)

You and your companions are recognized as local experts in things strange and unusual, which is why Dective Harden has asked you and your team to consult on the murder of Arkham socialite, Eugene Saltonstall. For the crime scene defies all resonable explanation, and is more aptly described as something strange and unusual. Drained of blood and torn to pieces, the murder of Eugene Saltonstall is something the Arkham Police Department is not trained to understand and unprepared to handle. Hopefully you're up for the task!
