Adventure Contest UNDERGROUND

Who are we?

„Cthulhus Ruf“ (Cthulhu’s Call) is the german fanzine dedicated to the Call of Cthulhu roleplay-game. We are no company, only four guys (and a lot of supporting friends!), driven by their shared passion for the game. Thus our project bears the subtitle „from the fans – for the fans“. This is why we don’t get paid or gain any profit by it, all money we get is being put into the production of our next issue. At the moment „Cthulhus Ruf“ appears twice a year, and only in German. But whith events like this, we try to produce even more content and even reach CoC-gamers in other countries. It is up to you if we can succeed!

Call of Cthulhu Adventure Contest – UNDERGROUND

Flanking the Kickstarter campaign of the survival horror video game U55 – END OF THE LINE, Cthulhus Ruf joins forces with Effective Evolutions for the Call of Cthulhu Adventure Contest – UNDERGROUND. We are looking for fresh ideas, bold plots and, of course, claustrophobic horror!

This is how you can enter:

Send us a complete, original and previously undisclosed roleplaying adventure for Call of Cthulhu (BRP) focusing on the theme „UNDERGROUND“.

  • Length: 45.000-90.000 characters (including spaces)
  • Language: German or English
  • Setting: Your choice! Cthulhu NOW! / 2010s is preferred, but not mandatory

Send your entries as an unformatted RTF document to:

Deadline: all entries must be received by January 31, 2014.

Don’t forget to include your name and your contact address.



A jury will evaluate all entries and select the prize winners based on originality and creativity. The three best adventures will be published by Cthulhus Ruf. Naturally, the winners will receive a specimen copy.

1 st  place: a Gift Certificate for Drivethru RPG ( worth 150 $.

A story element from the adventure (or even the author himself!) will be built into the U55 – END OF THE LINE video game as agreed upon with the winner.

2 nd place: a Gift Certificate for Drivethru RPG ( worth 100 $.

3 rd place: a Gift Certificate for Drivethru RPG ( worth 50 $.



The three top-seeded entries will be translated into German and English, respectively. Thus, every adventure will be available in two languages.

German: The adventures‘ German version will be published and printed in a collected volume of Cthulhus Ruf.
English: The adventures‘ English version will be released as a PDF for the time being. A printed publication will depend on a possible cooperation of an international partner.

A publication of unplaced entries of good quality should not be ruled out.


Should you have any questions, feel free to drop us a line (German or English, please!) at
