Its Hour Come Round at Last

"The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born"
                                                                      William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming


My second GURPS campaign - or more exactly my first fully GURPS campaign - Its Hour Comes Round at Last begins during the First World War (1915).

More clearly explored in the Introduction, this campaign is a weird investigative / espionage game focusing on the horrors of the interwar period.  While Lovecraft and Chaosium Call of Cthulhu inspired, the actually Cthulhu Mythos will not appear as such in this campaign.

This campaign occurs in the same timeline as Argonne, but Not Forgotten and The Funeral of Gustav Waecter.  The characters from Fragments of the Last War briefly appeared on this Earth in 1916 where they met Louis Mentur.
