One of the most famous TabletopGames of all time, Creator/{{Chaosium}}'s ''Call of Cthulhu'' combines the adventurism and teamwork of Tabletopgame/DungeonsAndDragons with the LovecraftianFiction setting of the CthulhuMythos. Your adventurers, or rather investigators, are dropped into scenarios right out of a Lovecraft story, and must keep their wits about them; the goal of every ''C.O.C.'' campaign is not so much to ''defeat'' the Enemy, but to ''survive'' Its horrendous onslaught while following the mystery out to its bitter -- [[KillerGameMaster and usually grim]] -- end.
