After Lovecraft: The Cold Case of Robert Suydam
You'll Never Read Lovecraft the Same Way Again...
Ten years ago, the sinister forces at work in Brooklyn's Red Hook neighborhood coalesced in the events described in the short story: "The Horror at Red Hook." The abductions, child sacrifices, and public downfall of the previously reclusive and well-respected Robert Suydam were big news at the time, but a decade later those demonic events are nearly forgotten. Only two living people know what really happened that night in Red Hook when devils and demons walked the Earth--an agoraphobic retired police detective named Malone and a very special young girl who wasn't even born when the events took place.
H. P. Lovecraft's imagination has terrified and entertained millions since his stories were first published nearly a century ago. As the inspiration for the Call of Cthulhu
roleplaying game, Lovecraft's work has inspired countless hours of game play for investigators and Keepers around the world. Few of those adventures have directly engaged Lovecraft's stories themselves, but those that have offer an extra thrill--a bit of majesty borrowed from the master. The After Lovecraft
line of adventures seeks to offer players and Keepers scenarios that directly build upon Lovecraft's tales, where the investigators themselves read Lovecraft's stories in game, as part of the adventure itself.The Cold Case of Robert Suydam
is available at the Flames Rising RPGNow Shop

Age of Cthulhu: Madness in Londontown
3,000 years before the birth of Christ, fearful tribesmen raised bloody sacrifices on the Salisbury Plain in honor of a dread god. The skies coursed red with blood, consuming the weak, granting boons to the strong, and seeding ghastly young in the wooded glens about the Salisbury Plain. 50 years after the death of Christ, the Roman legion Legio IX Hispana, led by Gnaeus Hosidius Geta, swept through the region, slaughtering the indigenous Celtic tribesmen. Those that stole the religious artifacts soon succumbed to madness, and the legion vanished from the annals of time.
Present day, 1928: Misguided worshippers seeks to call forth the patron god of old. The dark god will stride across the Salisbury Plain once more, and madness is sure to follow.Madness in Londontown
is available at RPGNow.com
Set throughout the globe and torn from the pages of the hidden history of the world, Age of Cthulhu
adventures bring new secrets and mind-bending horrors to your 1920's Call of Cthulhu

I'm currently trying to establish links between the Cthulhu Mythos and traditional mythologies and folklore - make guesses at which entity of the Cthulhu Mythos has similarities with/lurks behind which entity from classical stories.
You can help by going to the project page
and adding your own materials to the sub-pages. The project is part of a larger wiki which anyone can edit - no registering is needed. Note that this is not intended as a scholarly project - just a bit of fun and an aid to those who wish to tell their own stories.

Curse of the Yellow Sign: Digging for a Dead God
In May of 1939, somewhere in the jungles of Africa, a small band of soldiers have stumbled across something ancient. Something terrible.
And they are about to suffer the consequences.Digging for a Dead God
is the first in a series of Call of Cthulhu scenarios all linked by the Yellow Sign.
The Curse of the Yellow Sign scenarios contain no blasphemous books, no monsters, no cultists and no Library Use rolls. Only ordinary humans confronted with the true nature of the universe. They are designed to be played in a single evening with limited preparation and maximum impact, filled with the kind of ruthless game master techniques you'd expect from John Wick.
Digging for a Dead God is available for only $5.00 at RPGNow.com
