Saddle Up! Get yourself a posse together and have a look-see what`s over that hill. There`s strange rumors coming in from the whisperin' desert. You'd best put a round in that iron and make haste! Down Darker Trails is a new setting for Call of Cthulhu - the American West of the late 19th century. Rub shoulders with the likes of Wild Bill Hickok, Crazy Horse, and Calamity Jane, while journeying through towns like Deadwood and Dodge City. Down these dark trails the taint of the Cthulhu Mythos stirs, ready to lure the unwary and tempt the power-hungry with whispered secrets of cosmic knowledge. This is a West of hidden worlds, lost treasures and cities, dubious deals and unsavory alliances. A land filled with beauty, mystery, terror - and wild adventure! Here you'll find the means to create Old West investigators, new occupations, new pulp talents, and new skills, as well as inspiration and guidance on bringing the terrors and mysteries of the Great Old Ones into your campaigns. Plus, two complete towns, the gold-hungry Pawheaton and San Rafael on the Texas border, are fully detailed, providing Keepers with ready-made inhabitants and locales from which to stage campaigns.
