The Pannikin Requiem


Hobos are missing.

But does anyone really care?

Rumor has it several hobos from across the state of New York have simply dropped out of sight: disappeared.  It’s not an uncommon occurrence, though usually some word comes back about the missing eventually.  Not so in this case.  They’re gone and no one is sure where or why.

The police won’t help.  The politicians don’t care.  Regular folks can’t be bothered.  After all, they’re just hobos, right?  If nobody does anything, does it really make a difference?

It certainly does to someone.  It’s up to a small group of investigators to find out if something is going on and possibly put a stop to it.  Where are the missing?  What’s happened to them?  How can they be helped?

The Pannikin Requiem is a standalone game for Call of Cthulhu set in August 1929, just before the Stock Market Crash.  The Roaring Twenties are coming to an end, but for people who already have little or nothing, it doesn’t make much difference.  The scenario is made to be played with players’ own characters and can be dropped into a campaign with relative ease.

The Pannikin Requiem includes:

- A 24-page fully-illustrated semi-sandbox scenario set in the Catskills of New York State with information on  local towns, villages, railroads, and other locations in the area.

- Three pages of non-player characters.

- Maps of the county and one of the local towns.

- A dozen handouts.

- NPC portraits and other illustrations to share with the players.

- Four complete characters to use as backup investigators or pregenerated characters.

- An illustrated list of hobo signs.

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.
