The Mythos Society Guide to New England is an expansive universal sourcebook by veteran game designer Clint Staples that can be used to enhance any horror, mystery, or adventure roleplaying scenarios set in New England. It is particularly suited for Mythos-oriented games like Call of Cthulhu and Cthulhu Live. It is also a fun and provocative read for anyone interested in the esoteric history of New England, and a resource for stories or other projects that have horror or the weird as themes; are based on or inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft or other Cthulhu Mythos authors; or are set during the period between the two World Wars. 

The Mythos Guide to New England provides a record of the land and its inhabitants, its prehistory and history, and its natural and unnatural characteristics. In these pages you will find tales of the witchcraft, hauntings, monsters, and malevolence that have plagued the peoples of the region, from pre-Colonial days into the 20th century.  

New England is a diverse territory. Some the earliest settlements in the New World lie cheek by jowl with rugged country that, to this day, is all but untraveled by humanity. The sea, with its rocky shoals, rugged coves, unknown depths, and centuries of legend and lore holds sway over the minds of the region's inhabitants. The mountains and forests are just as mysterious and deadly, keeping secrets centuries and even millennia old, some of which mankind would be better not off not knowing. Between these wild areas are the settled portions, farms and orchards inland and harbors filled with ships and the folk that sail them on the coast. Man prevails in such places, but in the shadowed lanes, forgotten cellars, and lightless passages beneath his world there is still much that is unknown and unsettling. 

Read and use the knowledge contained within this book at your own risk.

Is there someplace I can go to get a color version of the softcover?

Thomas, most of the images that appear in "The Mythos Society Guide to New England" are black-and-white or grayscale and there are relatively few that are full color! Because of that we figured there would not be much of a demand for a color version of the book (the black-and-white version comes with a full-color cover, of course). If you would like one, however, just let us know and we will get it set up here for you and anyone else who is interested.

Thanks for the reply, I guess that's understandable. No point in making a color version if most of the images are in black and white or greyscale.

How many images are in color? If there are only a handful I don't want you to feel pressured into producing a color version. Such would be nice, but if there isn't many images that are color it may now be worth the effort.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
