Watermarked PDF + Hardcover, Standard Color Book

A one-to-two night scenario for the Chaosium's 7th edition Call of Cthulhu Gaslight setting, able to be used in conjunction with Hudson & Brand, Inquiry Agents of the Obscure,  or as a standalone Victorian-era investigation. 

The Case of the Shadow Traveller

The London Spiritualist Society is an austere and respected group which has been active for several decades, attracting many with an interest in the growing spiritualist movement of the Victorian era. Their main membership ranges from those with an interest in discovering the occult, to young socialites seeking a thrill. The Investigators start as either members or associates of the society.

They have been hired by the management to investigate an incident that occured three weeks prior which left one of the junior members dead and another institutionalised. The society’s manager, Lord Henry Walters, believes that several of the junior members conspired to summon a malevolent spirit, and fears that if word gets out then the reputation of the society will be damaged. The investigators then have a singular goal: ensure that the reputation of the society is maintained while putting an end to any suspicion of impropriety.

Laid out like one of the popular Victoria-era Penny Dreadfuls, the scenario is supported by handouts, maps, and introduces NPCs and one new Mythos creature.

I played this scenario at a local con. It was terrific, a perfect combination of cosmic wonder, weirdness, and horror! Highly recommended.

Just an observation, but the title of the product and the title in DTRPG are not the same, the image is also missing the word "Strange" so was a little difficult to track down, the title on the sample is correct. The images of the book the author posted on FB look good.

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.
