The Star on the Shore

Watermarked PDF

The Star on the Shore is a Call of Cthulhu module for 7th edition, licensed by Chaosium. It can be run with 3 to 10 players and can be for experienced or beginning investigators. This is a sandbox style adveture set in the classic 1920s.

A bizarre statue found in an old, unearthed chapel has vanished. What are the true aims of the shadowy organization desperate to find this nameless relic? Most importantly, what dark secret writhes at the heart of a small, picturesque town perched on the New England coast?

The story is a blend of real history and fiction that gives the story a life of its own. The adventure is the result of two years of research, writing and play testing. The real history is fascinating and flows right into the mythos world with very few changes. The more you discover, the deeper you are drawntoward your own insanity.

In addition, The Star on the Shore comes with a 2nd mini adventure, Key to the Abyss, that can be run in one evening as a standalone or as a side mission for The Star on the Shore.

I bought this from the Kickstarter so cannot leave a review, but to those considering a purchase...SAVE YOUR MONEY! CoC is a RPG with a very high standard for adventures. This one does not come anywhere close to the mark. It is a good initial attempt, however you can buy MUCH, much better than this. I regret kicking in and have not done so for any of their other products.

This game is listed as a D&D 5e compatible adventure. I assume that's a mistake? It would be amazing if it's not and it IS 5e compatible.

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.
