Review of The Armitage Files

This is a Spanish review from José Muñoz. Here is a Direct Link and here is a link to Google’s Translator. The Armitage Files is, from my point of view, the best supplement that has brought so far the editorial for The Trail of Cthulhu. Represents a radical shift in the way of set scenarios […]

Reviews of Mutant City Blues
