"This is a highly important fact in view of the shadow which fell so suddenly upon me... It may be that centuries of dark brooding had given to crumbling, whisper-haunted Arkham a peculiar vulnerability as regards such shadows"

- H.P. Lovecraft, "The Shadow Out of Time"

With our first 'regular' issue of the Arkham Gazette we could not help but make Arkham itself the focus on this issue.  Originally released free online in 2013, we have revised and improved this issue, adding three articles (marked with **_** below) and revised and expanded other articles, had improved handouts drafted, added art, etc.  This version of issue #1 is a full 50% longer than our original!


  • A guide to useful locations in Arkham from published scenarios
  • The Gladding School - an institution for mentally impaired children and other 'undesirables'
  • An in-depth look at Thaumaturgical Prodigies in the New-English Canaan
  • **A Encounter on West Armitage Street** - a scene you can insert into a scenario
  • Arkham's Boundary Markers, a historical New England oddity
  • The Case of the Missing Manhole Covers - a scenario seed
  • Reports of Delusions of an Invisible Monster - a prop document
  • **Arkham's Diners**, a guide to a distinctively New England style of eatery
  • **Arkham's Curios**, odd items, mysterious and malign, to use in your games
  • Scenario - "The Bosworth House", wherein madness creeps just beneath the surface
  • Annotated list of the more than 50 Arkham-set Scenarios

Conversion notes for use of this issue with 7th Ed. Call of Cthulhu rules are provided as a separate PDF, as are a separate PDF of the issue's handouts.

For those who can't wait for the desktop website fix: I could purchase just the PDF via Chrome browser on my Android phone. Then I just logged in on the desktop browser and could download and view as normal.

There seems to be some sort of problem on this end - the issue is set for a PDF, Print, and combo option. I have contacted customer support and hopefully it will be resolved soon. It seems that on some mobile browsers the PDF option can be selected but on the desktop version of the site, it does not. Very strange! Thanks for the comment.

The only option appears to be a PDF+Soft Cover version. Is this in error? Every time I try and order it, no matter which option is highlighted, it comes up as the PDF+Soft Cover for $13.

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.
