Riding the Northbound - A Hobo Odyssey

A group of hoboes, tramps, and bums go on an epic journey from the hobo jungle (camp) outside of Boston, Massachusetts to the small town of Harmony Corners, just north of Albany, New York.  A tramp named Bottlecap Bob has invited everyone he ever rode the rails with (which is pretty much every hobo, tramp, and bum you can thing of) to his new home to celebrate his recent marriage to a wealthy and exotic widow. Riding the rails is never easy, and doing so during a cold and snowy November makes it even more dangerous.  However, the rewards seem with the risk.  Unfortunately, the trip to Harmony Corners proves to be the easy part, as the hoboes soon face untold horrors from beyond our reality.

Golden Goblin Press is proud to present Riding the Northbound, a suspense filled 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu Jazz Age scenario set across Massachusetts and New York by Oscar Rios.  It also includes seven pre-generated investigators (four hobos, two tramps, and two bums), and a chapter filled with everything you need to know to bring your hobo-themed campaign to life

Product Information
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.
