Welcome to The Lightless Beacon, an adventure for Call of Cthulhu by Chaosium! Travel to the lovely and not at all unsettling Beacon Island and become stranded – I mean, visit a completely ordinary lighthouse full of historical character and no eldritch horror whatsoever. Assuming you survive (which of course you will! Haha!), you’re sure to have an exciting tale to tell your family, friends, and fellow asylum inmates. Oh, and don’t forget to give your travel agency five stars on R’lyeh’lp!
In celebration of the life of Greg Stafford, founder of Chaosium, Roll20 is offering this adventure for free, (yep, you read it right!) with special perks like Dynamic Lighting for Pro subscribers to really give you that spooky lighthouse vibe.
This standalone one-shot adventure can be played in as little as one hour. It also comes with four pre-generated investigators and makes for a great introductory scenario for new players – but it is a full adventure suitable for experienced players, too. There’s a mystery to solve and, in true Call of Cthulhu fashion, horrors lurking in the darkness. Will you be clever enough or lucky enough to survive?
