The Curse of Dudleytown


Six strangers go to


In 1811, a small group of people travel to the gloomy community of Dudleytown in Cornwall, Connecticut, which seems to stand in the perpetual shadow of the mountains near it.  Each of them has their own reasons for visiting the tiny community, but they soon find that rumors of a curse over the plateau upon which Dudleytown stands are more dangerous than they ever imagined.  Will they be able to escape from the curse that haunts the stone-walled fields of Dudleytown … or will it destroy them all?  Be careful where you step, for sometimes terrible things lurk just beneath your feet.

The Curse of Dudleytown was originally written as a convention scenario but is detailed enough for home play.  The scenario for Call of Cthulhu is set in the fall of 1811.  With only a little modification it can be adapted to different times or places, for the curse lingers still.  It uses slightly modified Down Darker Trails character sheets though that supplement is not required for play. 

The Curse of Dudleytown  includes:

- A 32-page fully-illustrated scenario set in Cornwall, Connecticut,  in 1811 with information on the World and the United States, Connecticut, Litchfield County, Cornwall Town and communities therein, and Dudleytown and its inhabitants, as well as the final fate of the community.

- Seven black powder weapons of the era.

- Information on a unique mythos creature.

- Eight Non-Player Characters as well as stats for general townsfolk, cats, and the curse.

- Maps of Cornwall Town and Dudleytown in 1811.

- Four handouts.

- Two dozen NPC illustrations and six investigator portraits to share with the players.

- Six Pregenerated 1811 investigators.

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.
