Experience the Epic Madness of Eternal Lies From Pelgrane Press

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013 | Posted by John ONeill

Eternal LiesPelgrane Press has been producing some of the most ambitious and exciting RPGs in recent memory.

They began in 2001 with one of my favorite RPGs, The Dying Earth, based on the rich world created by Jack Vance. More recently, we covered their ENnie Award-winning SF game Ashen Stars; the mammoth adventure compilation for Trail of Cthulhu, Out of Space; and their epic fantasy release 13th Age — which topped the list of 9 Most Anticipated RPGs of 2013 recently compiled by EN World.

But it’s quite possible they’ve topped all of those with Eternal Lies, a massive new campaign for Trail of Cthulhu by Will Hindmarch, Jeff Tidball, and Jeremy Keller. The early buzz on Eternal Lies compares it very favorably to Masks of Nyarlathotep, the seminal 1984 mega-adventure for Call of Cthulhu that is frequently (and justifiably) cited as the finest role playing adventure ever written.

A decade ago, a band of occult investigators battled against the summoning of an ancient and monstrous evil.

They failed.

Now, you must piece together what went wrong. Investigate ancient crypts, abandoned estates, and festering slums. Explore choked jungles and the crushed psyches of your predecessors. Follow in their footprints and make new ones of your own. This time, there won’t be another chance. The world is yours to save… or lose.

Pelgrane Press is selling the adventure in a special pre-release bundle with the soundtrack album, print edition, and PDF. They’ve created an audio trailer voiced by Wil Wheaton, which you can listen to here.

Eternal Lies will be available in print in August; the PDF version is available now. It is 396 pages; pre-order price is $49.95 for the complete bundle. Order at the Pelgrane Press website.

  1. John, please quit reviewing cool gaming stuff. I can’t afford to buy all of the cool old, and new, books that keep getting reviewed on Black Gate. Add gaming stuff to the mix and it spells one word: bankruptcy!

  2. This is why God invented Amazon Wish lists. When I can’t afford to buy something, I just add it to the list.

    Of course, that list is now ridiculously long. I keep breaking it up into categories to make it more managable (23 at last count). The movie list, for example, has 975 items, and it is nowhere near the longest.

  3. Been there done that. I have five separate categories with some lists with over 50 items. That’s ridiculous.

  4. I guess it’s telling that the title at the top of this thread is “EPIC MADNESS.”
