The world is yours to save… or lose
A decade ago, a band of occult investigators battled against the summoning of an ancient and monstrous evil.
Now, you must piece together what went wrong. The campaign begins wherever the PCs hail from, and then quickly moves on to an asylum and an overgrown plantation estate in Savannah, Georgia. Their investigation then takes them to the sordid streets of Los Angeles, and from there to Bangkok, Malta, Mexico City, the Yucatán jungle, and Ethiopia, which the PCs may visit in any order, as they hunt down clues and try to destroy the avatars of a terrible god-thing.
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.
Eternal Lies is a massive new campaign for Trail of Cthulhu by Will Hindmarch and Jeff Tidball with Jeremy Keller. It is now available as a hardback book or PDF, or you can get a reduced-price digital bundle from the store with the soundtrack album.

We just finished the whole Eternal Lies playtest and…
It is the best campaign I have ever run.
I first ran Shadows of Yog-Sothoth in 1982, and I have run Masks of Nyarlathotep twice, Horror on the Orient Exrpress twice, Beyond the Mountains of Madness, as well as other RPG campaigns, and none of them have the richness and depth of Eternal Lies.
I envy those of you who will be able to play this at its own pace, and let it fully invade every aspect of your character’s lives.
Having playtested the first act, arnother strong recommendation for it here. While I’m not sure it’ll replace MoN or BtMoM in my heart, it is certainly an excellent campaign (even in its draft form, which will of course improve on publication ! ) and looks to be another great Pelgrane product.
I’ve just finished reading the entire campaign. To say that I’m speechless would be quite an understatement. From what I’ve learnt beforehand about Eternal Lies, I suspected it would be some kind of Masks of Nyarlathotep thingie TOC style. The funny thing is that I’ve already gmed a personal version of the classic Chaosium campaign based on roughly the same premises that Eternal Lies: the players were to discover what happened 5 years ago to their former characters.
But not even in my wildest dreams would have I imagined such a masterpiece. This is total epic madness. This is Masks of Nyarlathotep meet Tatters of the King meet Beyond the Mountains of Madness. This is by far the best campaign ever written for a RPG. This is going to be a blast!
I dont know how much efforts and time have been put into this work, but, I really want to thanks everyone involved in it. When you read something this good, this captivating, it really makes you proud being a member of the RPG community.
