“In my hand I wield the Universe and the power to attack and kill” -- Hong  Xiuquan, Poem on Executing the Vicious and Preserving the Righteous [斬邪留正詩], 1837 

The Brother of Jesus is a scenario written for the Call of Cthulhu 7th edition RPG (by Chaosium) and compatible with the GUMSHOE RPG system (by Pelgrane Press). This scenario was created with the support of Kickstarter Backers of The Sassoon Files campaign book. The Brother of Jesus may be played as part of The Sassoon Files campaign or as a stand-alone RPG.

Harry C. Lloyd, a reputable Far East correspondent and award-winning investigative journalist, wrote an article titled “The Brother of Jesus and His Curse” exposing a string of troubling recent events that appear to be connected to a curse bestowed upon Shanghai during the Taiping rebellion dating back to the 1850s.

Fifty years later, families, businesses, organizations and descendants of ancestors who supported the Qing’s “Ever Victorious Army” which defeated the Taiping are experiencing strange events. A string of recent fires, disappearances, and misfortune has taken place in Shanghai with the victims being the descendants of the Ever-Victorious Army. Considering the events and the information at hand, Lloyd concluded that recent events have a surprising correlation with the Taiping Rebellion and are not merely coincidental. Old allies have turned on each other, and no one seems to know who is behind the incidents.

Hong Xiuquan offered his followers a corrupted version of Christianity and Daoism. His syncretic religion linked “Yin and Yang” philosophy with the worship of the twin Blasphemies, associating Nug with “Yang” and Yeb with “Yin”.  He further espoused the notion that Yog-Sothoth is the undivided Dao and that from Yog-Sothoth sprung forth both the bright and heavenly Nug and the dark and earthly Yeb. If father Yog-Sothoth is the apex of the trinity, then Nug is the son and Yeb the Holy Ghost.

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.
