Nightmare in the Moonlight

When a psychiatrist finds a note written by an illiterate man, he hopes to do something about it, but he can’t bring himself to investigate the address listed in the missive.  His only hope is a friend who might be brave enough to see what terrible thing lies in the house.  But in the bustling metropolis of Providence, Rhode Island, what true terror could there possibly be when the street is only a few yards away?

Nightmare in the Moonlight is the adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft and J. Chapman Miske’s The Thing in the Moonlight.  Based primarily upon a dream Lovecraft wrote of in one of his letters, Miske’s framing story and the original nightmare are detailed within

Nightmare in the Moonlight was originally written as a campaign scenario but can also be used for convention play.  The Call of Cthulhu scenario is set in November, 1927, just after Thanksgiving of that year.  Now someone’s life may depend upon a note written by a man who cannot read or write and a group of people who are looking into the occurrence.  Can they solve the strange case in time?
