Red Skies: A Call of Cthulhu One-to-One Scenario


An Imperial German Air Service squadron has gone rogue! Its members have been seen dragging downed Allied pilots away to some grisly fate – cannibalism is suspected! Enter the Aces, an elite Allied squadron, tasked with putting an end to this unnatural threat!

Inspired by the dogfights of the Great War and the early days of aviation, Red Skies puts the players into the cockpit of a Sopwith Camel biplane in 1917. As the war rages beneath them, the pilots of the Aces combat Mythos threats from the air.

The scenario is intended for one Keeper and one player. The game usually runs in a single two-hour session of play.

Red Skies is designed for use with the 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, and includes:

  • Six pre-generated characters inspired by actual First World War pilots for your player to chose between;
  • Two new unique monsters inspired by the folklore of Europe;
  • Modified Chase rules to simulate the excitement and terror of an aerial dogfight;
  • A handy chart of 20 Hazards and Barriers to add extra danger to air combat;
  • Advice on how to run and present the scenario.

Craig Lawson has written numerous short stories for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, Delta Green: The Role-Playing GameCthulhu Invictus, and many more, though they're mostly locked up safe on his hard drive. This is Craig's first scenario.

Original electronic
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.
