This page is devoted to various minor Arkham Horror fragments that I have acquired over the years. This is not an archive of every piece of fan-created Arkham Horror material on the internet. Instead it contains the pieces which I feel are of sufficient quality to warrant additional exposure. Where possible I have tried to give the relevant accreditation, but if I have missed anyone, please contact me so that I can credit your work.
FFG Official bonus material
This material is official, so print it out and play with it…
16 Custom Investigators
All the investigators are well thought out and this expansion even includes a chart so that you can check if you have the appropriate expansions to use a particular investigator. This is a very simple expansion which’ll take no time to construct but can add more diversity to your investigator pool.
8 Thematic Investigators
These investigators are well designed and pay close attention to historical detail. A very simple addition which will extend your game.
The Gilman Wing
Extra exhibit items, so you’ll need Curse of the Dark Pharaoh. The instructions state to use these items instead of the exhibit items, but personally I prefer to just add them to the original stack.
Cult of the Golden Scarab
This one also contains extra exhibit items, but it contains a lot more besides: new Ancient Ones, new spells, investigators, mythos cards, etc. There’s plenty of juicy material to get your teeth into even if you don’t own the Curse of the Dark Pharaoh.
Dark Corners of This Earth
Based on the computer game of the same name, this expansion contains a lot of material and does to Innsmouth what Cult of the Golden Scarab does to Curse of the Dark Pharaoh. Obviously to get the best from it, you’ll want the Innsmouth Horror, but even if you don’t own that expansion, you’ll still find a wealth of new material in here.
It all started when FFG handed out a free print version of the Dark Pharaoh, Avi finishes it off with an excellent collection of Heralds to round out the other Masks in the cup. And speaking of Nyarlathotep…
The Masks of Nyarlathotep
A faithful reproduction of the classic RPG scenario. In our hobby, there are two or three world class supplements which I hope will one day be recognised by the literari as true classics in their field. Chaosium’s Masks of Nyarlathotep is one of them and routinely tops the lists of best role playing scenario ever written.
This scenario reproduces the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign. It’s a lot of work to put together for what is essentially a very large scenario, that you might only play a few times, but you cannot fail to be impressed by the scope of this project.
An altogether smaller scenario to construct, but no less the worse for that. Essential Saltes gives you an opportunity to investigate the Curious Case of Charles Dexter Ward.
The Lurking Fear
Dare you investigate Tempest Mountain? A small board strongly based around the H.P. Lovecraft story of the same name. There’s a relatively low component count, so it shouldn’t take too long to print out and put together.
The Door to Saturn
Written by the author of Cult of the Golden Scarab, so you know the author has pedigree. This latest expansion will allow you to explore the wider world: Arabia, the Pacific, the Antarctic, even Mars! Accessible and reusable, you’ll find this expansion easy to print out and use in your games.
And if that isn’t enough for you, you can find a bonus expedition to Darkest Africa here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/970718/new-door-to-satur…
The Antarctic Expedition
This is an alternative option to Door to Saturn. With even less material to print out, you can probably get it up-and-running faster if you’re looking for a quick Mountains of Madness fix, but, due to the limited number of encounters, it may lack some replayability. Prior to Door to Saturn, it made an excellent option for Investigators who wanted to leave Arkham for a while.
The French have an updated version of this scenario which can be found here: http://wiki.horreuraarkham.fr/index.php?title=Les_Montagnes_…
The Haunted House
A faithful reproduction of another classic scenario. Like Masks of Nyarlathotep above, the construction time when weighed against replayability may be an issue for some, but it’s certainly worth looking into.
There have been many attempts to construct a campaign of scenarios over the years. Here are just a few of them.
- Ancient Ones
- Common Items
- Exhibit Items
- Exhibit Whispers
- Heralds and Guardians
- Mythos Cards
- Unique Items
- Odds and Ends
