The H.P. Lovecraft Wiki

This subject is written on a topic in the real world and reflects factual information. This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. Cthulhu Dark Ages: The Abbey is a supplement for Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu offshoot Cthulhu Dark Ages.


Split into three sections, The Abbey contains background allowing Keepers to run games in medieval France. The first section provides information on St. Bartholomew's Abbey, a pregenerated backdrop in southeast France of 982AD; section two takes a look at France during the period, giving some flavour for the region at the time; the final section offers a look at the priestly Order of St. Jerome, a set of non-player characters for investigators to interact with.

The Abbey was written by Michael Patty.
