Exploring the Extra-Human Consciousness of the Great Old Ones

The Dreaming Prince is a supplement to Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying system. This particular supplement is driven to explore the extra-human consciousness of the Great Old Ones, in particular Cthulhu. Cthulhu, in his namesake story, remains dreaming in sunken R’lyeh, transmitting his madness to the world around him at different times and to different people based off their sensitivity to such phenomena.

In a bit of a twist off the original story — albeit not a large one — the Great Old Ones represented here can be both tangible entities and intangible representations of natural forces beyond what human science can understand. Few of the Great Old Ones are represented here, largely for the sake of time and convenience, and in the course of these adventures, the investigators will never directly encounter the Great Old Ones. Nonetheless, this setting does employ the Mythos both in species and technology. In fact, several human technologies, displayed here as experimental and purely science fiction, are indirectly influenced by the Great Old Ones through a form of mental osmosis.

This work contains a scenario from the 1920s that pertain to another two scenarios later in the work in modern times. This understandably involves two separate groups of investigators played by the same players. There are a few recurring motifs throughout the work, as well as unmentioned plot devices that can either gain or lose significance based on how much of the mystery is unraveled.

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.
