Dark Designs, (Occult Terrors in 1890s England), contains three adventures for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game:
- Eyes for the Blind
- The Menace from Sumatra
- Lord of the Dance
All are set in southern England, and involve occult practises in the 1890s. Two of the adventures — Eyes for the Blind and Lord of the Dance — can be linked to to form a mini-campaign, while the third is suitable for new investigators and beginning players.
Background information about the 1890s, including a character-generation synopsis and investigator sheet, is included in this book. Enterprising keepers might refer to Chaosium's Cthulhu by Gaslight supplement, containing extensive information about this period. You do not need Cthulhu by Gaslight to fully enjoy Dark Designs.
Two nice fold-out maps are included: one of 1890s Central London, plus a Railway Map of Southern England & Wales.
