The Cthulhu Hack: Three Faces of the Wendigo


"That stern quality of the tangled backwoods which can only be described as merciless and terrible rose out of these far blue woods swimming upon the horizon and revealed itself. He understood the silent warning. He realized his own utter helplessness."

 - Algernon Blackwood, "The Wendigo"   

Three authors. Three chilling tales of malevolence and inhuman appetite for Cthulhu Hack.

Wolves in the Mountain by Richard August

A man staggers into an isolated town with a story of murder and madness. A small group ventures into the wilderness, in search of the truth. But out in the mountains there lies something darker and stranger than they can possibly imagine... and blood. Lots and lots of blood.

Lovely, Dark and Deep by John Almack

Wherein the investigators go on a hunting trip in the Canadian wilderness, but soon wonder who is the hunter and who the prey.

Tainted Meat by Paul Baldowski

Out in the deep woods, a tiny settlement has fought to survive and won. When the travelling investigators arrive, they find proud, tough people and are welcomed with warmth and hospitality. Hard times behind them, why would anyone want to leave?

Designed as stand-alone investigation adventures, suited to running as one-shots or over two sessions. Written for The Cthulhu Hack, adaptable to any game of investigation horror.

Completed updated from the original version, the revised (v2) collection includes maps, text tweaks, and additional advice around pre-generated characters. Formatted for A5 print size, which has expanded the page count considerably from the original!

Winner of the UK Games Expo Awards 2018 People's Choice Award for Best Roleplay Game Adventure.

These are horror adventures and GMs should adjust the themes to suit the age, maturity and experience of the audience.

Publisher Note: This investigation is written for the 1st Edition of The Cthulhu Hack. While compatible with the 2nd Edition, there are small changes.

Was there ever a map added for Wolves in the Mountain scenario?

What area were you after a map for? There's a map of Marlowe's Cave, but no map of the area or Newcome. Both the area and Newcome are left to descriptions of the encounters and events, rather than the specifics of the terrain.

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.
