Call of Cthulhu – Deep in the Bayou (Part 1)

Louisiana, 1926. A desperate group of Cajun residents around the small town of Montegut has posted a large reward for any information related to a series of missing persons. The victims were apparently snatched from their homes with little trace.

Enter the rival teams of Castle Investigations and Coen Investigations. The two teams are enigmatic duos of P.I.s, hard-boiled and ready to take on anything. As the session opens, they have high-tailed it to Montegut to crack the case of the missing Cajuns.

Along with their trusty cameraman, the team has set out to collect ghost readings, record abandoned houses at night and shout “Oh my god there are ghosts here” after every odd noise.
