|Call of Cthulhu LCG | Published 27 April 2009|
At length, sick with longing for those glittering sunset streets and cryptical hill lanes among ancient tiled roofs, nor able sleeping or waking to drive them from his mind, Carter resolved to go with bold entreaty whither no man had gone before, and dare the icy deserts through the dark to where unknown Kadath, veiled in cloud and crowned with unimagined stars, holds secret and nocturnal the onyx castle of the Great Ones.
- H.P. Lovecraft, Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath
H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands setting is a fantastic realm that exists just beyond the veil of our conscious minds. It is there that dreams come alive, and nightmares prowl on the periphery of our sanity. This Summer, the Call of Cthulhu card game enters this mysterious, parallel dimension with Dreamlands.
Dreamlands is the second series of Asylum packs for the Call of Cthulhu Living Card Game™, after The Summons of the Deep, transporting players from the damp back alleys of Innsmouth to the hallucinatory splendor of H.P. Lovecraft's dream world, introducing innovative new gameplay opportunities.
With the debut of Dreamlands, the Day/Night mechanic is introduced to the CoC LCG™. Players can now control whether the action of the game takes place under the light of the sun, or in the darkness of night, and the investigators and horrors of the game will benefit, or suffer, accordingly. Additionally, new deck types and strategies have been introduced for all seven Call of Cthulhu LCG™ factions. Whether you want to play the intrepid human Dreamers, beastly Gugs, or the tricky Zoog, the Dreamlands expansion has something for everyone.

The first Dreamlands Asylum Pack will debut this summer, and the set will be released as a series of six monthly Asylum Packs, the first of which is entitled Twilight Horror and will feature 20 never-before-seen cards, as well as the first chapter of a brand-new serial tale chronicling the adventures of card shark Gregory Gry and mysterious artist Twila-Katherine Price in the Dreamlands.
Based on the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft and his literary circle, Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game takes two players deep into the Cthulhu Mythos where investigators clash with the Ancient Ones and Elder Gods for the fate of the world. To learn more about Call of Cthulhu, visit our minisite.
