Beyond the Mountains of Madness is Back in Print - Chaosium

The long out-of-print Beyond The Mountains of Madness returns with an updated layout and sleek new printing coming in at over 400 pages. This is a black and white hardcover book. Written in 1999, it is for the 5th edition Call of Cthulhu rules. It has not been updated to the 7th edition rules.

Beyond the Mountains of Madness is a direct sequel to the short story At The Mountains of Madness , in which an expedition from the Miskatonic University in Arkham discovers proof of ancient, alien life. The investigators of this campaign embark on a new expedition, seeking to finish what the first one started—and uncover the truth of what happened to their predecessors.

This printing of Beyond the Mountains of Madness is unchanged from the original vision of the authors. Rules are presented as they were for Call of Cthulhu fifth edition, though can be played with other editions with minor mechanical changes.

Extensive information on Antarctica, including rules for mounting expeditions, and details for 1920s equipment. Expand your campaign, or develop your own Call of Cthulhu scenarios set in the white wastes of the South Pole!

Website includes downloadable items for play.

Yep! I picked that one up too. I’ve heard plenty about it but never owned it or had a chance to play it.

I’m actually brainstorming on combining these with Trinity Continuum: Adventure! A couple of my players are Cthulhu-adverse. Too many years hearing people yell, “Wanna play a game where you go insane and die?” Worst game pitch ever by the way. Humorous to those of us in the know, but it definitely doesn’t do any good when you’re trying to draw in new players. Anyway, the Adventure! angle gives them more agency and affords them the ability to fight back against the cosmic horrors to a certain degree. Buying this print is part of that plan.

My wife got me a copy on Ebay a few years back for my birthday. MM is my favorite HPL story and I had always wanted to get it it when I saw it at the FLGS many moons ago, but at the time I didn’t have the money and when I went back to get it after the next payday someone had beaten me to it.
