Crying Wolf


Part I of the Dark Aesop trilogy.

One month ago, by the light of a full moon, a small band of young shepherds caught sight of a monstrous predator among their flock. The children cried ‘Wolf!’ and the adults of the village came running, but the creature possessed terrifying powers to elude the village’s attention. The grown ups scoffed at the children’s fanciful tale. Nobody believed them.

Tonight, the wolf returns. If the children survive, it shall return next month and the month after that. The shepherds know the wolf can be deterred by the villagers, but only if the villagers answer their pleas for help. If the adults don’t come when the children cry ‘Wolf!’ they’ll be on their own. And to the monster, meat-of-child is as delicious as meat-of-lamb...

Crying Wolf is a short, sharp, violent survival horror game about Cassandra truths and monsters hidden in plain sight. It is a tabletop roleplaying game for one GM and three to six players. All rules for the game's unique, simple system are included, along with GM advice for striking the right note of desperate terror in your games.

Like the fable that inspired it, this game features dead animals, dead children, neglect, and behavioural discipline enforced through threat of violence. Use of safety tools is highly recommended.

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.
