A Modern Call of Cthulhu Scenario
Written for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, this scenario is meant to be played with 2 to 4 investigators in 1 to 2 sessions. This book is meant for Keepers, but there are various pieces for Investigators to use as well!
Le Bastion Culinaire is the finest (fictional) culinary institution in France. For the last decade, it has produced some of the best chefs in the world. However, the students and faculty, overprotective of the school and property, have begun raising suspicion with the outside community. Students have gone missing with no real explanation, and those looking for information have been stonewalled.
A whistle-blower has managed to get the word out to investigators that all may not be as it seems, asking for help. However, getting in undetected has been a challenge. An opening for investigation is presented when the school announces they will close for the five days around the All-Saints’ Day weekend. Most students board for the year, but most choose to travel home for this holiday, leaving the school almost deserted. This is the moment the investigators have been waiting for. With the school almost empty, they can start searching for the truth.
