CoC - H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands
This is a module/setting for Call of Cthulhu that I have not had a chance to play. This is the third edition of the setting and I am certain I have at least the second and maybe the first which was a box set. This is by far my least favorite of the versions simply for the cover. I actually held off buying this at some really good prices simply because of the cover. There is something about the cover that makes it one of the creepiest things I have seem in gaming. I am sure that this is now somewhat tame for covers and interior art but this goes beyond shock into something unnerving for me.
