Convicts & Cthulhu: Ticket of Leave #6

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

"They're Coming To Get You, Convicts!". The Dead Walk Again.

The penal colonies of early Australia are places where death is a common occurrence. Whether due to disease, starvation, violent flogging, or execution -- people depart this life at an alarming rate. This creates practical problems: where to bury so many corpses, and how to maintain a degree of sanitation? These are tasks that the early colonists tackle in a remarkably haphazard way -- while there are allocated burying grounds set aside, graves within are dug wherever seems convenient, and no written records are kept of who has been interred where. This laxity creates some interesting jumping-off points for a tale of horror or the macabre -- after all what would the noxious necromancers of H.P. Lovecraft's tales have achieved with an almost infinite supply of corpses which nobody would miss? And what foul forces of the Cthulhu Mythos might thrive in such a charnel house?

Ticket of Leave #6 is a double-size supplement which describes the historical burial practices and cemeteries of the early New South Wales colony. It also provides an extensive mini-scenario which features some dark necromantic experimentation (and its spectacular, if unexpected, consequence). Do your investigators dare to brave the Night of the Convict Dead?

Tickets-of-Leave are small self-contained additions to the Convicts & Cthulhu setting for Lovecraftian roleplaying in the early penal colonies of Australia. Each includes a selection of game elements which can either be used collectively as a thumbnail sketch of a mini-scenario, or can be used in isolation to provide pieces that enhance a scenario of your own invention.

This is not a standalone product, but relies upon the Convicts & Cthulhu setting also published by Cthulhu Reborn. The Convicts & Cthulhu core book is a lavishly illustrated 96-page sourcebook available in both PDF and print as a "Pay-What-You-Want" title.

Convicts & Cthulhu is designed to allow Call of Cthulhu Keepers and players to run scenarios and campaigns set in the penal colonies of early Australia. It particularly targets the historical period from 1795 to 1810.

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.
