In Lovecraft’s universe of cosmic horror, mysterious vistas or esoteric names like Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, or Yog-Sothoth are the most terrifying to those who already grasp their connection to a greater, inhuman reality. Many of Lovecraft’s heroes gain this grim awareness from one special book – "Kitab Al Azif" by an Arab poet Abdul Alhazred, a tome better known under its translated title "Necronomicon".

The World of Necronomicon is an independent supplement for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition. Inside you'll find:

  • A framework for running campaigns in which investigators know the content of the forbidden Necronomicon from the start;
  • Ideas on how could the investigators have stumbled upon this blasphemous book and how does it alter roleplaying them and narrating their adventures;
  • Optional changes in the rules that can stress important aspects of a World of Necronomicon-inspired campaign;
  • Necronomicon-related story seeds and ideas for including clues related to this book into official scenarios;
  • A brief and silly translation note on why speaking about reading and Sanity is especially funny in Polish, the language this supplement was originally written in.

The World of Necronomicon is the sixth English release in the Zgrozy line. To find out more visit our Facebook page (/ZgrozyEN) or see our other English releases. Further releases will follow soon. “Zgrozy” is a slightly archaic Polish word for “Horrors” or “Terrors.” Following advice from English-speaking Cthulhu fans, we decided to keep the original title for foreign releases since it sounds suitably unspeakable and blasphemous to non-Polish ears.

By buying The World of Necronomicon, you’ll receive a full-color version of the scenario and a printer-friendly version without graphic elements, both of which come in two different formats to help ensure ease of use and readability across multiple devices. As a bonus you’ll also receive two audio files with the Polish pronunciation of the word "Zgrozy", one of them calm and one slightly terrified.

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.
