This is a general page of notes and links for the Call of Cthulhu game, originally written by Sandy Petersen in 1981. Since then it has been through many editions and partial editions.

The Ripper Campaign
A long campaign using a variant of Call of Cthulhu, played in Chicago, Illinois from 1996 to 1997. It was set in London of the 1880's, with a mystical plot surrounding the Jack the Ripper murders. The variant rules added tarot card hands to the play, which were used similarly to Whimsy Cards.
Shadows in the Fog
A new game design based in part on the Ripper campaign, which uses tarot cards for its resolution. I playtested the alpha version of the rules in July 2003.
The Golden Dawn
This was a short campaign using Pagan Publishing's sourcebook, The Golden Dawn, done as straight Call of Cthulhu and adapting the scenarios in the books. I ran a campaign from 2006 - 2007.
Cthulhu Trials
This was a series of unconnected adventures 2006 - 2007.
