Zennor & The Sins of St Senara - A Gaslight Supplement for Call of Cthulhu

Selected Option:

The village of Zennor is perched on the Cornish coast, in the Hundred of Penwith. It is a quiet place passed over by the bustle of industry that has engulfed the rest of the British Isles. Legend tells it was founded by a saint from the sea, and the church of St. Senara bears her name. Its people are famed for their singing locally. Singing so beautiful a mermaid came ashore to listen to it and married a local boy. The truth is much darker than that. Zennor is an ancient place full of secrets. Secrets that its inhabitants are willing to kill to protect.

This edition collects the separate books ZennorThe Sins of St. Senara into a single volume.

A Guide to Zennor

”At Zennor one sees infinite Atlantic, all peacock-mingled colours, and the gorse is sunshine itself. Zennor is a most beautiful place: a tiny granite village nestling under high shaggy moor-hills and a big sweep of lovely sea beyond, such a lovely sea, lovelier even than the Mediterranean… It is the best place I have been in, I think.” —D.H. Lawrence

HistoryZennor has always been one of those places that history and time seem to forget and pass by, but it started as a small collection of farms in the Dark Ages. Since then, residents have managed to avoid attention and even contact with an increasingly connect world.

The Village and its Inhabitants: Detailing notable NPCs and locations in the village, from Gurnard's Head to the Zennor Quoit and even the old manor house the is perched on bluffs overlooking both village and ocean. This chapter also provides a map of the region and of the town itself.

A Guide to Zennor Parish: Beginning with how to get to Zennor Parish from more populated parts of Great Britain, the Guide to Zennor Parish provides info on lodging in the area and how to get around in the bucolic setting. 

Village and Hamlets of Zennor Parish: The churchtown of Zennor lies at the eastern edge of Zennor parish. The rest of the parish consists of scattered farmsteads and a few hamlets connected only by rutted roads. 

Fell Secrets and Forbidden Lore: Some ot the true history of Zennor, unknown to outsiders and even some of those who live here, is covered next. In addition to the expanded background, this part provides more information on two helpful NPCs, shedding light on what they know of the area that may be of interest to tourists (or investigators).

Scenario Seeds: Provides ideas for using Zennor in other eras (The Dark Ages, The Reformation, and Elizabethan Times) and fleshing out a slightly longer idea of Zennor during the Napoleonic Wars.

The Sins of St. Senara

"I had thought I had run far enough. I had throught my past behind me. Now I know one can never run far enough or fast enough. Who you are catches up to you eventually."

The wealthy Godfrey Tillinghast was happy. He married for love. And after a brief period of joy, the honeymoon ended with his wife leaving the London scene for the Royal Edinburgh Asylum. It was her nerves, you see? And she was getting better, too. She was...everyone said so. But then she drowned. Seawater, they said. In a locked room. Miles from the ocean. 

The Sins of St. Senara take investigators from London to Edinburgh and back again, before seeking answers to a mystery that began nearly a millenia ago, in the churchtown of Zennor. 

Laid out like one of the popular Victoria-era Penny Dreadfuls, the scenario is supported by handouts, maps, and introduces NPCs and one an ancient cult in Cornwall.

Any chance for a POD release?

Definitely. Layout for the POD version is a bit different, so the file is being reworked to account for that. Once done, both the cover and interior are uploaded and receive a quick check by the computer (dimensions, bleed, etc.), followed by a check by the printers which tends to take a few days. After that, we've got to order a proof which, due to COVID-related slowdowns, has printing taking longer than normal. Overall, we're probably a month out before a POD version is available (with most of that being the printing-slowdown).

And sadly, due to margins with DTRPG fees and POD costs, discounting the cost of the PDF (if bought in advance) from the POD price isn't possible.

Great. Look forward to the POD. Love this bit of the country having stayed a number of times not far from St Just...and have even eaten a few times at The Gurnard's Head after a day's rambling.

Just uploaded the Cover and Interior files for Print on Demand. Barring an issue with the proof, we should be looking at sometime in the first half of April for the POD Option.

Sounds great! As I'm a physical collector of Chaosium related material, primarily Call of Cthulhu, since the 80s this is of great interest!

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.
