Dateline Lovecraft EXTRA! - Smoke Green (Un-Statted)

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $2.00

“Everyone loves Arkham's new brand of green-smoking cigarettes. Some even claim they bring good luck to all who smoke them. But is there something more hideous lurking behind the emerald wisps of Reinhart smoke?”


EXTRA! “Smoke Green” is a short investigative scenario of Cthulhu Mythos horror, set entirely in H.P. Lovecraft’s fictional town of Arkham. It is not a self-contained scenario, but rather an add-on to the newspaper-based resource, Dateline: Lovecraft, Issue #1. To make full use of this PDF you will need to own a copy of that product.


When millionaire industrialist Reinhart Laine picked Arkham to be the site of his grand new Tobacco Rolling Factory, few could have predicted the rapid good fortune that his new “Reinhart Cigarettes” would achieve. In a short time, not only were many Arkhamites smoking the new brand of cigarettes — distinguished by their unique green-tinged smoke — but so too were many people in Boston, and cities further afield. The green-smoking cigarettes soon came to be associated with good luck, whether as a result of successful advertising or through anecdotal tales of lucky events befalling Reinhart smokers. The new factory, too, has attracted a great deal of attention, drawing visits from influential industrial moguls and politicians alike.

But all is not well at Reinhart Tobacco. When company president Reinhart Laine is found dead in his luxury high-rise office, the Investigators are charged with discreetly looking into the matter. Who could have wanted the wealthy tycoon dead? Were his political affiliations in the bitter race for Arkham’s next Mayor somehow a factor in his death? Or is the closely held “secret recipe” for Reinhart Cigarettes’ distinctive green-smoking tobacco something that a rival company might be willing to kill to find out? Diving into this smoke-filled mystery might just leave the Investigators with questions about who really wields power in the sinuous town of Arkham … and what lengths others would go to to get it.


Dateline Lovecraft EXTRA!s are small supplemental PDFs which provide resources to help Game Moderators use the Dateline: Lovecraft period newspaper product as a centerpiece to their roleplaying games of investigative horror. Each includes a selection of game-related elements which can either be used collectively as a scenario relating to the core newspaper prop, or can be used in isolation to provide pieces that enhance a scenario of your own invention.


To make best use of this material, you will need to own a copy of the Dateline: Lovecraft, Issue #1 product, also published by Cthulhu Reborn. All profits from the sale of Dateline: Lovecraft are reinvested to fund the writing, illustration, editing, and layout of further free supplements like this PDF.

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.
