Call of Cthulhu – The Haunting

I have recently conducted with a friend a Call of Cthulhu RPG adventure/scenario called “The Haunting”.

From what I know of, this is one of the most famous and played in CoC. If you don’t want any spoilers, please, do not go further.

….. …..

In the adventure, the main antagonist is Walter Corbitt, a sorcerer that is transforming in the basement of an old house.

The description of the fiend found in the main rulebook and quickstart rules (6th edition):

“He is a drawn, wooden-looking, wizened figure of some six feet, skinny and naked, with ghastly wide-flaring, saucer-like eyes and a nose like a knife blade. He has lost all hair, and his shrunken gums make his teeth look very long. From him comes a sharp, sweet, churning scent, like rotten corn. (…) He does not breathe at all. Corbitt is not truly a vampire, nor any recognizable monster – he is a sorcerer in the process of transforming himself into something entirely inhuman.” “(…) dried, iron-hard flesh (…)” “Around Corbitt’s neck is a black gem fastened on a chain.”

I was surprised that there are very few renderings of this amazing creature online. So I decided to give it a try and give life to Mr. Corbitt. Here is the result:

I decided to make him with shining eyes because one of his appearances to old residents of the house was “a haunting form with burning eyes”.

Call of Cthulhu - Walter CorbittIt It was quite challenging to make him, but overall I had a lot of fun. He also has an old dagger/knife hidden in the basement that floats in the air and slashes the curious investigators. “(…)an old knife with an ornate hilt whose blade is coated with oddly-thick rust.”

This one was also quite interesting to make. At first I designed it as a knife, with a more straight blade. One feedback that I received was that it would be more appealing taking some characteristics of old persian daggers, like curvy blades. So here it is the final version.

  1. I would like to ask for that 3d model of Mr Corbitt. I’m working on a PC-Game based on “The Haunting of Mr Corbitt’s house” and that model is exactly what I’m looking for.
