“It is less a refutation of facts than a mere personal affirmation of the author’s membership in that conventional 'very human' majority who take affection and companionship seriously […] and therefore love man’s noblest and most faithful friend, the perennial dog.”
–H.P. Lovecraft, “Cats and Dogs”


Barkham Horror is an alternate universe in which the conflict between humanity and the eldritch forces of the Mythos takes a back seat, and the conflict between dogs and cats takes center stage. In The Meddling of Meowlathotep, a 78-card standalone scenario pack, the investigators must stop Meowlathotep, the Prowling Chaos, Meowsenger of the Outer Feline Gods, who is terrorizing the city of Barkham. Only a few precious pups can defeat the various Meowsks of Meowlathotep and prevent them from destroying Barkham and the world!

When this adventure kicks off, you are hot on the trail of a cat conspiracy. A catspiracy, if you will. Dogs all across town report seeing strange, unnatural cats prowling the streets of Barkham, and each day more and more pigeons are going missing. You’ve picked up the scent of something big, and once you sink your teeth into a story, you just can’t let go. A little wet fur has never stopped you from finding the truth. Perhaps if you investigate the areas of Arkham most plagued by these sightings, you can root out the cat‐monsters that dwell within.

Throughout The Meddling of Meowlathotep, you'll find that certain locations have become "lousy with cats." When you begin play, six locations across Barkham have a facedown Meowsk enemy beneath them and, as the scenario progresses, a location with a facedown encounter card beneath it is considered to be “lousy with cats.” This has no inherent effect, but some card effects may change depending on whether or not a location is lousy with cats. For example, a Rodent Killer (The Meddling of Meowlathotep, 46) will seek out the investigator closest to one of these locations, while encountering the Meowsks of Meowlathotep (The Meddling of Meowlathotep, 54) will force one of these cards to be flipped, spawning a deadly creature at the location. The only way to save yourself and your city is to put an end to these dark machinations and restore balance between the species once again.

The humans have no idea of the dangers that lurk just beyond the world they know, and you must do everything in your power to keep them safe. They are the purveyors of pets, the givers of treats, and now is the time for you to live up to the name “Man’s best friend!”
