A Scenario of Darkness and Terror

This is a convention scenario with highly detailed characters and handouts intended for a theatrical style presentation in a single long session.

This adventure is intended for 4-6 players, and can be completed in a single 5-7 hour session. It is not a scenario for the squeamish keeper or players, and some may view the drama herein as harsh. The game begins on September 15, 1927.

Scene 1 - Opening the Door - 9:00 AM Thursday - September 15th

Most of the digging crew has been dismissed. The foreman, Harold Granby and two of his trusted crew remain above with a stock of crating materials.

The characters are gathered at the entrance to the vault. The tunnel is somewhat cramped and narrow. It is about 50 feet in length and extends down a flight of fieldstone steps from what was once the basement of an old house. Like a mining tunnel, it is shored up with strong wooden beams every few feet. At the end of the tunnel the characters face a solid granite door with a thick verdigris-covered copper ring. The door is rather plain and appears to have been marked with painted symbols that have been mostly worn away.

The scenario begins with the opening of the door....

MISKATONIC UNIVERSITY LIBRARY ASSOCIATION monographs are longer works by one or more authors on a subject of import to Call of Cthulhu roleplayers. On these products the author has also fulfilled the functions of editor and layout artist; we at Chaosium have done little in the way of editorial. We found these works compelling and thought that you would enjoy them. Through the publication of monographs we can offer our most loyal fans more information more easily, and evaluate the potential of these works for eventual release to the wholesale market.

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.
