Co-writer of the original Horror on the Orient Express Call of Cthulhu TTRPG campaign Mark Morrison is to create back stories for the 16 characters that feature in the board game version.

These characters, which feature in the Investigators Unveiled Expansion for Horror on the Orient Express The Board Game, plus the two vampire antagonists, will each get their own one-page back story with a fully-statted Call of Cthulhu Investigator sheet. They will also feature a full body portrait.

These characters could easily be used in any 1920s Call of Cthulhu scenario. The investigators would make excellent pre-generated player characters!

Mark Morrison says, "What a thrill to be invited to do this. The creative team have assembled an intrepid cast and I can't wait to tell their stories. They will also have Call of Cthulhu RPG stats so their horrors are just beginning. Oh, and there is a new nemesis who has intrigued me since she stepped out of the billowing steam and bought her one way ticket... (That's one way for the investigators, not her.) There are already 10,000 backers on board, and 4 days to go. See you in Istanbul!"
