Best scenario involving The King in Yellow

Recommended Posts

So I've sat through the CriticalHit's CoC live play podcasts based on King in Yellow and got me an instant urge to host one. But sadly when I looked at the published stories in the store, they all seemed a bit too light hearted to me. One is on space the other medieval... I just want a straight up classic story based on the play's mystery, without huge monsters poping up all the time.

Long story short, do you guys have anything to recommend? Perhaps there is a scenario out there that I'm not aware of, I'm fairly new to CoC so don't know all the published stuff.

Tatters of the King is a large adventure centred around stopping the King in Yellow coming to Earth - will that do?

Note: - I played it as a player and I think we all enjoyed it, though my character didn't 'come back' from the end (rolling 00 on a SAN check when into single digit SAN got the GM to pull me aside and tell me my charachter was now trying to help bring about the King's arrival).

Tell me have you seen the Yellow Sign? By K.Ross!

That's a great pick -- and it was only reprinted a year or two back by Golden Goblin Press (in "Tales of the Crescent City"). Kevin also wrote a new scenario for that book which is a direct sequel to "Tell Me Have You Seen The Yellow Sign?"

Other suggestions -- "Tatterdemalion" by Richard Watts & Penelope Love (in the book "Fatal Experiments") ... and for modern-day conspiracy creepiness, the obligatory "Night Floors" by Dennis Detwiller (in "Delta Green: Countdown").

Honestly, though, there are quite a lot of creepy and not-at-all-cheesy scenarios out there which showcase The King in Yellow -- it's a shame that those encountered by the OP weren't like that :)
