Tales of Terror

Years ago, I came across a very good webpage for call of cthulhu - it was called Tales of Terror and the url was talesofterror.net. I recently found that the page is gone and so is all of the content..but I was like "LETS HIT THE WAYBACK MACHINE!" and I did. I have collected the tales of terror from the page and in honor of the authors I will present them here.

Systemless Tales - These Tales of Terror are completely systemless and can be dropped into any roleplaying game with barely any adaptation...

The following Tales of Terror heavily involve the Cthulhu Mythos.
The following Tales of Terror only marginally involve the Cthulhu Mythos.
