Thorston, The Shunned Town On The Dee is a sourcebook and adventure for the Call of Cthulhu RPG in a Victorian setting and can be used with the core 7th edition rules, the sourcebook Hudson & Brand Inquiry Agents of the Obscure, or can be adapted to 6th edition Cthulhu by Gaslight.

The coastal “town” of Thorston (pronounced ‘Thorston’) is like a bedraggled half-dead beast washed upon the shore of the Dee Estuary. It was once a happy community but now lies overgrown and gently fading into obscurity, its remnants a haven for scavengers, the dispossessed and worse things that ply their midnight trades. Found in the north-west of England on the Wirral Peninsula between the industrial port city of Liverpool and the county seat of Chester, Thorston is mostly ignored by its neighbours out of a general sense of unease, either at the dilapidated state of the vagabond-infested ruins, or something much more primal which grips at the hearts of those who venture too close. Will it survive much past the 1890s or will it finally be allowed to die?

Looks great! And it is basically named after ME (Thorston = Thorsten - same name like Jon and John)!

Any chance to see a POD-option soon?

Nitpicking here, but Thorston is translated as "Thor's town", whereas the Germanic/Scandinavian Thorsten means, I think, "Thor's stone".

... which is short for "Stonehammer of the Thundergod".
Thanks for the nitpick, "The Steady", but in MY BOOK they named it after ME! ;-)

Format
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.
