“An epic, swashbuckling Napoleonic adventure expertly blended with chilling Lovecraftian horror” – Sci-fi and Fantasy Reviewer
Dashing French Lieutenant, Gaston d’Bois, is reassigned to the XIIIth Imperial Death’s Head Hussars and charged with leading a detachment of these “thieves on horseback” into the Spanish interior, in search of intelligence, supplies and plunder.
Forced to take refuge in the Monasterio de St Cloud, d’Bois encounters the unworldly Doctor Malfeas and the beautiful nurse, Mademoiselle Brockenhurst. Yet this former house of the holy holds many outré secrets and d’Bois faces fresh battles on all fronts, including the mystery which lies at the heart of the Monasterio itself, an ancient and terrible enigma which threatens both the lives and souls of all who encounter it.
Alone, deep behind enemy lines and beset on all sides, can d’Bois survive his first real command and prevent the horrible unravelling of the feast of the dead?
“Great story, interesting characters, lots of sword and musket action, and the potential for future stories in an underutilised setting.” – Sci-fi and Fantasy Reviewer
The year is 1810 and as Napoleon’s marshals chase Wellington’s expeditionary force to the lines of Torres Verdras, the dashing if rather dim French Hussar Gaston d’Bois is astonished to encounter the love of his life. But the fragrant Odette is soon abducted by the Marquis Da Foz, a ruthless and sadistic Portuguese noblemen.
Joined by a mysterious British Major, the hot blooded Hussar is soon in deadly pursuit, but what strange horrors lurk within the shadows of Da Foz’s ancient Moorish fortress? Can the heroic duo foil Da Foz’s dark machinations, rescue the delightful Odette and ultimately prevent the opening of the dreaded Crystal Void?
 This is the illustrated version of The Crystal Void, with a brand new cover by Dimitri Martin and splendid period woodcut-style illustrations by artist Michael Poole, bringing new life to the story which was originally told in the Seraph Chronicles Volume 2.
This first anthology volume of Mon Dieu Cthulhu! contains both the first two adventures, The Crystal Void (Illustrated Version) and Feast of the Dead.
We hope you enjoy this forays into this exciting new RPG universe and look out for more Mon Dieu Cthulhu! coming soon!
Best wishes,
Modiphius Entertainment
