The Things We Leave Behind is an anthology of 6 modern day scenarios for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game published by Chaosium, Inc, edited by Jeff Moeller, and written by Brian M. Sammons, Scott Dorward, Simon Brake, Oscar Rios, and Jeff Moeller with art by Davide Como, Badger McInnes, Dean Engelhardt, and Stephanie McAlea.

We are proud to announce that The Things We Leave Behind has been nominated for an ENnie Award in two categories, best adventure and best electronic product!

The voting starts on the 11th of July and for the duration of the voting, we are knocking 25% off our cover price!

http://www.ennie-awards.com/blog/2017-ennie-award-nominees-and-spotlight-winners/

Taking its inspirational cues from Delta GreenFargoBlood Simple, and True Detective, the book takes a mature look at the horror of human nature and its ability to be just as disturbing as anything from the Mythos. 

The scenarios deal with unavoidable fates, dark secrets, and seriously bad choices made by the antagonists. As so often is the case, there are no winners when fate has trapped you in a dice game for doom or destiny. As such, please be aware that some of the themes are quite mature and are suitable for adult gamers only

It would be nice with a special discount on PDF now when you are a nominee. So we can read it before and cast a vote for it. :-)

I have a couple questions about this product:
-- is the game system CoC 6th or 7th edition ?
-- are modern era pregenerated characters provided ?

Thanks !

-- 7th ed., but there are a few places in Ladybug, Ladybug (the only one I've run so far) where they fall into 6th ed. mechanics, e.g. subtracting a fixed percentage from skills instead of increasing the difficulty (or adding penalty dice). That's probably because 7th ed. was fairly new when it was written, and it takes a while to digest all of the subtleties of the rule changes.

-- Modern Era, yes
pregenerated characters, no.

I had a question about the scenarios since the description is somewhat vague. What time period do the investigations take place in? 1920s, Modern, etc? I've heard great things about your adventures and I'd love to run my investigators through them before forcing them to ship off to Europe to solve the mystery of the Orient Express. (It sounds like they might be wanting a vacation from America after they are done with what you have created)

They are all set in the modern day US and the investigations all take full account of modern technology, social media, etc. Some of them could be moved to Europe without too much trouble. (I've heard tell of a game of Ladybug transported to Sweden)

I am curious if these are interlinked scenarios, separate ones, or if they have a sorta framing device like with Trail of Cthulhu's final revelations?

Hi, the book does have an overarching campaign frame but it was only available to backers of the Kickstarter and only as a separate PDF. There are currently no plans to release that to the wider public. My apologies.

That's fair enough, I guess the kickstarters need something unique!

Good thing I backed the latest one :)

Trying to buy this as a PDF but everytime I click on the PDF it converts it to PDF and softcover at twice the price.Can you amend this at all? Thanks

Is it possible to get hard copy or print on demand. I don't particularly like running scenarios from pdf.

So I can open in Chrome but not with Preview on Mac OSX like I can most PDFs. Any ideas?
Customer avatar
David A September 17, 2016 5:25 pm UTC
Not sure why that's happening, but an option could be to print it from chrome and then open the print preview in Preview. You'll lose the table of contents though if it has one. :/

The only time I've had pdfs not open in preview were those forms that required adobe reader, but this shouldn't be that case plus you were able to open it in chrome.

If the print preview thing works well enough, there are programs that let you make a table of contents and save it to the PDF. They usually are $5-10 though. Not the best solution, but hopefully that helps somewhat.

Hi, will there be a POD option, please?
Customer avatar

In a few weeks. Physical book proofs have to be ordered up and carefully reviewed, since once those go out, any minor errors are written in stone. They also have to be approved by the licensor (Chaosium), so they are always available a few weeks after the pdf.

If we had already purchased the pdf, is there some sort of voucher to get a discount on the print version? If so, how do we go about getting that?

Hi Frank, simply send the email proof of purchase to stephaniemcalea@outlook.com and I'll arrange for you to get a physical copy for a discount cover price (minus the PDF cover price, basically).

Are these scenarios playable with one player-one keeper, or are they intended to be played strictly with a full party?

The first one (Ladybug, Ladybug) you might get away with playing with a single player.. the others are likely to be seriously lethal for a 'Lone Gunman'.

A friend of mine ran Hell in Texas with a single player. Apparently it worked perfectly.

Ladybug, Hell in Texas and The Night Season, yes. Roots and Forget Me Not, no. Intimate Encounters, with a very skilled and experienced/non combat oriented player.

Roots has parallels with a few films that pit a lone protagonist against an isolated community. Those protagonists did not survive. However, if that's the sort of story you want to explore there's no reason you can't - the hook relies on a personal connection to one of the PCs, with the scenario designed to be especially horrific for that one person as a result.

IF we buy this now will we get a discount when the PoD comes out - or should we just wait?

Buying the print edition at rrp of $49.99 gets you a free PDF so buying the PDF will get you a voucher of $19.99 against the purchase of the print edition. :)

Will DriveThruRPG notify us when print becomes available, or should we just keep checking back?
BTW, love Ladybug. It's running very well, though not the way I expected it to.

Format
Original electronic
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.
