I have contemplated doing something similar with Call of Cthulhu - just running it as a historic horror or even period drama thing, until the Cthulhu Mythos suddenly starts interfering. Might be fun :)


A friend always narrates how his favourite ever Call of Cthulhu game was played as a "Gangbusters" 1920s underworld game. When they discovered the unspeakable Eldritch horror behind it all it took the players completely by surprise and worked perfectly.
"The crazy ol' Vorox"

Something witty, pithy and observant ought to go here.

Oh well.

Gotta choose your players carefully for that one. Some will be very upset by the "bait & switch".

Oh, absolutely. I was thinking about whether it would work for my long term playing group and it *might* but there are a couple who could be disappointed or feel a little cheated by the "reveal". I think a lot of it is in the handling of it during play.
