Little Torches


It is 1994, and a daughter returns to college after spending months recovering in a psychiatric institute following her rescue by police from a cult.  She is carrying a strange bronze box covered in hieroglyphic-like patterns.  Moments later, she catches fire, killing herself and many of her classmates and professors.  She is not the first.  She will not be the last.

Little Torches is the second in a short series of stand-alone modules for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, examining human concepts and experiences through the unknowable and alien Cthulhu Mythos.  The Investigation features the Great Old One, Cthugha, and explores themes of isolation and alienation.  It confronts Investigators with the question of what motivates one to keep battling the Cthulhu Mythos in the face of insurmountable hardship and indescribable nightmare.

This product contains 60 pages in total, including: a 34-page scenario, 14 pages of handouts, 4 pages of NPCs and creatures, and 8 pages of pre-generated characters and background.

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.
