The Dare

This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we’re getting into the spooky season a little early with The Dare (2020), a scenario for Call of Cthulhu that pits some costumed kids against a haunted house and the thoroughly horrific witch that lives there. Originally written by Kevin A. Ross as a somewhat legendary tournament module in the late ‘80s, this modern renovation featuring kid-sized Call of Cthulhu rules brings the game to modern audiences for the first time. It’s notable for being one of the very first RPG scenarios to cast players as kids (though it is emphatically not for children) and it will surely be a welcome addition to your Halloween one-shot arsenal.
