Trail of Cthulhu: The Dying of St Margaret's $5.95 $4.11

I purchased this product as part of the “Purist Adventures” bundle. The Dying of Saint Margaret’s is a slow paced investigation filled with dread and despair. It is well written, and the layout and artwork are topnotch. It comes with some great player playable characters, and a few example NPCs that the PCs are following to the island. It should take one, or two sessions to run.

It has some great advice for directed scenes in the vein of flashbacks, or playing through other characters for a short time. I also love the way that the character’s drives are central to the adventure. The way you build up, and then undermine the player’s drives throughout the adventure will make for a chilling, memorable experience. That said, make sure your players understand that there really isn’t a way to “win” the adventure. The characters will likely end up dead, or mad at the end without really accomplishing anything. I’m fine with this, but the whole thing may be too depressing for some groups.

If you are looking for a purist Trail of Cthulhu adventure with an intriguing mystery, and a depressing atmosphere, you can do little better than The Dying of Saint Margaret’s.
