Dark Offerings


When a good friend asks the Investigators to find his missing daughter, it plunges them into the nightmarish world of the mythos; taking them across the UK and to a strange, remote cluster of islands off the west coast of Scotland.

Dark Offerings is a modern day scenario for Call of Cthulhu that takes the Investigators across the UK and eventually to the Tahmraith-Eilean, a strange and insular trio of islands in the Hebrides. It is inspired by the classic movie The Wicker Man, as well as Lovecraft’s own The Shadow over Innsmouth.

This scenario works with both novice and experienced Investigators. While this scenario is intended to be set in the UK, visiting various locations in England, Wales and Scotland, it can be adapted to be set in almost any part of the world.

Just ran this over the past 2 Saturdays for 2 players; each controlled 2 characters and I threw in some friendly NPCs as backup in the final standoff. We enjoyed the scenario very much. Thanks to the numerous red herrings, neither the players NOR the characters were prepared for what they ultimately faced. Also, we enjoyed using web search to find local spots of color in the real locations noted in the module, and along the highways between them. Two thumbs up.

When I've run it, the scenario has taken an average of about 9 hours of play to complete.

Probably somewhere between 8-10 hours; didn't time it, but two sessions at 4-5 hours each.

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.
