Welcome to Memento Mori.
Memento Mori is a Call of Cthulhu 6th Edition campaign in the 1890s setting. It is being consciously designed in such a way as to take advantage of the culture and society of Victorian-Era England, and the way once-common practices can, to modern players, serve to create dissonance and heighten the horror.
The term memento mori is a Latin phrase meaning “Remember you shall die”. It has also been used to refer to the Victorian custom of making hair jewelry or taking death photographs of loved ones.
This campaign is planned to run once a month on Fridays, in rotation with Kurokamui’s A Dead Start and two others not featured here. It is scheduled to begin on Friday, 12 June 2009, although as we have one more player who has not created a character and everyone is new to the game the first session may be more of a rules rundown with a simple introductory story.
The players will be allowed (and encouraged) to have two characters each, the first being built on point-assignment rules and the second on straight rolls.
