Horrors from the sea - a Mephisto review

Tales of Aquatic Terror

Life by the sea has several sides. On one side, there is the normal and pleasant life: a tour on a yacht, a politician's boat trip, a cruise to Europe, and a summer vacation in a small beach resort. On the other side, the horrors of the sea come into play: monstrous reptilian experiments, a conspiracy that kidnaps people under the sea, an arsenal of strange creatures that hide among (and sometimes hunt for) people, and government agents for whom civilians are just good experimental material.

Tales of Aquatic Terror offers four ready-to-play adventures for It came from beneath the sea, which confront the everyday heroes with all sorts of monsters and conspiracies against the backdrop of 1950s B-movies. The adventures are simple, well-structured, and suitable even for inexperienced groups. There are directly prefabricated characters whose background is integrated into the story for some adventures, so it is quick and easy to get started.

Iguana take a cruise offers a classic survival scenario that quickly moves from exploring to fighting deadly monsters. The Bubble confronts the characters with an enormous conspiracy that requires investigation and some tricks to combat. The Voyage of the Rose Marie is a sandbox in the form of a cruise with a whole arsenal of human and inhuman challenges. A Summer of Terror offers survival horror again, but with a nastier background. As interludes, the book serves up short, entertaining stories that evoke a bit of the game's atmosphere.

With four adventures, game masters get a lot of material covering a broad range. The Voyage of the Rose Marie does offer a little too many monsters and conspiracies, but you do not have to include them all. Therefore, this story is the highlight of the book from my perspective. However, I found both the story a bit confusing and some sentences difficult to read with the last adventure, so it did not quite convince me.

Nevertheless, the four Aquatic Tales of Terror offer an excellent introduction to the B-movie horror setting of It came from beneath the sea, which I can recommend – especially to beginners.
