Call of Cthulhu The Wasted Land (Chaosium/Red Wasp)

... ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’ is set in the midst of World War One and pits a team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient enemy, older than humanity itself. This eldritch enemy is using the carnage of the great war to build an undead army amidst the battlefields of Europe.
I think a friend of mine was planning something very similar to this as a Cthulhu campaign, some sort of zombie-WWI-trench-death, I think that what he was saying, maybe it was going to be classier than that but he wouldn't tell me much more -in case of "spoilers". One day we'll play it, I'm sure, if he doesn't sacrifice me.  It would be pen and paper of course, none of this hi-tech business with video games on mobile cell telephonic handsets. ;)

Edit: I talked to my friend this evening and apparently I dreamt the whole thing ...!

Can't wait until then?

Don't own a phone? (because that's how the screaming astral abominations get into our world...)


The day of the Earth's demise not coming soon enough for you?

Well, you're in luck!
