The Pipeline: A Call of Cthulhu Scenario for the 1980s

Selected Option:
Softcover, Premium Color Book
PDF + Softcover, Premium Color Book

In the Fall of 1986, contact was lost with Exxon Pumping Station #31 near Telegraph Creek, BC Canada. The media reported that a radical environmental group called the North Wind sabotaged the facility, leading to the deaths of several Exxon employees and a number of civilian contractors. The official statement made it clear that all members of the North Wind were killed during the incident by a group of private security personnel hired by Exxon.

Following the incident, the pipeline was shut down pending further investigation by the Canadian government and unnamed US agencies. The matter was soon forgotten by the public and no more was heard about The Pipeline Incident.

Until now.

The material in this book is designed for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu, but is backwards compatible with other editions. Besides providing a great deal of classic 80s horror action, this scenario is intended to explore and expand the concept of survival in Call of Cthulhu by providing additional challenges and pressures for the investigators to face. This makes the scenario particularly deadly, and so Keepers may wish to consider using the Pulp Cthulhu rules if they want to give their intestigators a better chance of making it out alive.

In addition to the scenario, this book includes some additional definitions, rules, and arctic hazards that the Keeper can use at their discretion throughout the scenario to enhance the cinematic feel of the story. These environmental rules can also be used in other arctic settings if the Keeper wants to make things more cinematic and dangerous.

This book contains 68 pages of content (72 pages total) including: 7 arctic hazards, a 45 page scenario (with 10 pages of handouts), 8 pages of NPCs (with 8 playable investigators), a new monster, a new occupation (Arctic Guide), new equipment, and new archaic weapons.

NOTE: Print-On-Demand copies of the handouts only can be purchase HERE.

I wish I could, but the Community Content rules don't allow for it. If they do, I will definitely do it.

Daniel, while I am not able to make the entire scenario available as a print-on-demand book, I was able to make the handouts available for print at the link below. I hope that helps.

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.
