Echoes in the Mist: A Regency Cthulhu Story Guide


Once you realize that there is no hope... how do you live out your life?

Echoes in the Mist is a story guide written for Regency Cthulhu.

Atmospheric disturbances caused by the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia has caused a global catastrophe of famine, disease, and death:

“The Year Without a Summer.”

However, something much more sinister awaits the investigators.

A blue comet passes overhead. It brings with it Echoes from the void... and an irrefutable offer.

Their lives will change.

Their sanity will be tested.

And yet, the spring coming-out balls must continue...

Join us and hail

All hail the Silent Shouter.

All hail the Unheard Howler.

All hail the Wailer in the Dark.

You are the echo that proceeds death.


Content Warnings: This story guide is intended for mature audiences only.

Content Warnings will vary based on Keeper preferences. As written, expect

violence, psychological terror, suicide, and harm to animals.

Run Time: Run time is based on Keeper preference. We anticipate anywhere

between 4–8 sessions. However, Keepers could potentially condense the content

into a four hour game.

Investigators: A host of pre-generated investigators have been donated to this

content from other Regency Cthulhu material published on the Miskatonic

Repository! We thank these creators for their contributions, and you can see

more on page 63.


What is a story guide?

This story guide provides a plot (introduction, climax, conclusion), suggested scenes, a directory of NPCs, and various encounter/inspiration tables. However, full scene support, rules application, and most historical support are left to the Keeper to either improvise, research, or prepare prior to running.

We have included Keeper and player support to assist in investigator creation, including motivations, backgrounds, occupations, and skills.

However note: this content places certain demands upon the Keeper to include historical research and an activation of substantial improvisational skills. The story, while linear, is intentionally presented as open-ended.

This gives both the players and Keeper comparative and collaborative storytelling freedom. I highly recommend that Keepers read the content in its entirety prior to play to position themselves for success.

What's included?

86 page story guide

12 pregenerated investigators

8 handouts

Original map by THE Matt Ryan

NPC Directory

In "and an irrefutable offer", should it be "irrefutable" (cannot be denied) or "irrefusable" (cannot be refused)?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
