AUSTRALIA is a new-settled land, full of opportunity. But it is also an ancient land, filled with the dreamings of the Aboriginals, hunters and gatherers who came first. And, as famous horror writer H.P. Lovecraft wrote, long before the humans came shocking and awesome entities, whose purposes are unguessable.
TERROR AUSTRALIS includes three roleplaying adventures, “Old Fellow That Bunyip,” “Pride Of Yirrimburra,” and “City Beneath The Sands,” as well as extensive information about the Aboriginal inhabitants, their mystical concept of Dreamtime, inhabitants of the Dreamtime, Australian history, transportation in the 1920s, contemporary Australian slang, famous hauntings, and a special chapter analyzing the Dreamtime (Alcheringa) in roleplaying terms. Intended as a roleplaying supplement and useful for any roleplaying system, TERROR AUSTRALIS also contains many pages of illustrations and maps to intrigue any Australia buff.
This book is a companion to publications such as H.P. LOVECRAFT’S DREAMLANDS and GASLIGHT, which also situate Cthulhu players in other times and places.
