The Dark Brood slither forth from the fecund womb of Shub-Niggurath; undulating and hideous copious, it births strange and impossible children.
Ever Their praises, and abundance to the Black Goat of the Woods. Iä! Shub-Niggurath! Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young!
The Cthulhu Hack: The Dark Brood offers a selection of content bringing the fecundity of Shub-Niggurath front and centre to your game and loosing her mindless progeny upon the world. The supplement has been expanded from the original release and includes:
- An overview of the Black Goat of a Thousand Young and the manifestations of its presence
- Six ready-to-play samples of the Dark Brood as examples of using From Unformed Realms to generate endless new monstrosities
- Three investigation seeds with three suggestions each on hooking your group in and what they'll uncover
- Worship and worshippers of the All-Mother, outlining six different follower types, their appearance and abilities
- Five new Mythos spells and rituals associated with practitioners close to Shub-Niggurath
- Dozens of ideas on adding the influence of the Dark Brood and Shub-Niggurath into your investigations, which you can use as hooks, flavour, or creative sparks for your next investigation
Written for use with The Cthulhu Hack, the simplicity of the system and light mechanics mean that ideas and content can easily be adapted to other investigation horror systems - or even rolled back for use in The Black Hack and its multitude of progeny!
