"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

CoC - Utatti Asfet - The Eye of Wicked Sight

Utatti Asfet is a globe trotting adventure for 1990s Call of Cthulhu. It starts with the investigators being in the Kingdom of Tonga in what may be the worst contrived reason ever for a Call of Cthulhu adventure. They then find themselves in the American city I would most connect with darkness and evil that is not Cthulhu centric. The adventure then brings them to the Sudan where they have an ending they are merely able to watch for some reason once it begins. This is an adventure that is sparse in mythos and not one I would recommend even if it had been set in the 20s.

From the back of the book:

Utatti Asfet - The Eye Of Wicked Sight - a 1990s campaign for Call Of Cthulhu

The Graham Westlake Foundation sponsors the International Symposium on Unexplained Phenomena. This year, the fortieth annual symposium takes place in the Pacific Island nation of Tonga. The investigators are among the attendees. There, they encounter evidence of phenomena they know only too well. They begin an investigation that leads them to cults, confusion, mayhem, delicate inquiries, villains foreign and domestic, new magics, horrors undersea, horrors in swamps, and horrors in the sands of the desert. A wide variety of characters and situations enhance a memorable set of adventures.

Set in the 1990s, Uttati Asfet is a world-spanning campaign. In it, the investigators learn that the Mythos is not their only foe, and that evil can wait a very long time.
