The Fall semester at Taylor University came to a close today, and Refractions of Glasston is now available to download for free at the Miskatonic Repository, Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu community content resource at DriveThruRPG.

The creators are all students at Taylor University. Though many of the team are members of the professional writing major, this is their first foray into the world of RPG writing. With help and advice provided by Chaosium’s Mike Mason and Lynne Hardy, these writers, editors, and RPG enthusiasts set out to create a unique adventure for Call of Cthulhu fans to enjoy.
Dead Light is back, with two “unsettling” encounters on the road…DEAD LIGHT AND OTHER DARK TURNS contains two scenarios dealing with the theme of roadside adventure, along with six story seeds for the Keeper to expand and develop.
In the classic ‘Dead Light’ scenario, now revised, a chance encounter with a distressed young woman leads the investigators into the hideous aftermath of a crime gone terribly wrong. While in the brand-new ‘Saturnine Chalice’ scenario, seeking help from a nearby homeowner after their vehicle runs out of gas traps the investigators in a house where nothing is quite what it seems.
