The Camping Trip


Between 1910 and 1930, the Green Mountain Club built the Vermont Long Trail, a hiking trail stretching 273 miles along the spine of the Green Mountains from Williamstown, Massachusetts to North Troy, Vermont.  In 1927, three young women — Catherine Robbins, Hilda M. Kurth, and Kathleen Norris, known as "the Three Musketeers" — hiked the length of the trail.  Their trip was widely publicized in the local press, and the investigators, a group of friends, have been inspired to recreate the Three Musketeers' journey.  Starting in Williamstown on July 25, 1928 (just like the Musketeers), they head north into the wilderness.  Unlike the Musketeers, they're going to encounter something much worse than mosquitoes and bad weather.  In the abandoned town of South Glastenbury, they'll catch a glimpse of a universe vast and fascinating and strange — before being reminded that this universe is also inimical to human life.  The Camping Trip is a short (4-5 hours) purist scenario for 3-6 players.

Thanks for writing "The Camping Trip." I just re-read it and plan to run it as a one-shot for Call of Cthulhu newbies around Halloween. I can't wait! Such a well-written adventure. Please continue writing more, okay? [...]

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.
