  1. Thank you for these maps: this was very helpful for our Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game campaign!

  2. I'm also running a London based Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game and much of the action is likely to take place in and around the British Museum. These are really helpful, thanks for posting them.

    1. I found it curious that I too am writing a "Cthulhu" style game. Mine is slightly different, centred on Mesoamerican gods. Are these maps copyrighted? If I use them, of course I will site my source.
