Victorian Shadows: Cthulhu Personas of 1890's England


As the Biographies section on page 46 of Cthulhu By Gaslight (6E) notes, there were many notable personalities that lived in Late Victorian England. Like any age, there were just as many less notable, more inglorious personalities who lived in this era as well.

Victorian Shadows presents 20 lesser known historical figures of the Victorian Age. It gives 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu Keepers the stats for these more obscure, provocative characters to use in their Late Victorian games. Alongside their abilities, hooks that directly relate to the mythos are given as are brief physical descriptions and other tie-ins to help to flesh out these personalities, including the individuals' ages in the year 1890.

This guide is a companion and supplement to Inglorious Victorians, a scrapbook era dossier of each of these individuals. While not needed to run these characters, its strongly recommend keepers pick up a copy to easily incorporate any or all of the characters as it presents their histories in quick and ready-made synopses. You can pick up that title here on Drivethru

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.
