Miskatonic Repository Catalogue

Multiple File Formats

The Miskatonic Repository Catalogue is an Excel 365 spreadsheet listing hundreds of titles available from Chaosium’s community content web store for Call of Cthulhu. Based on the information authors make available on DriveThruRPG product pages, it summarises the setting and time periods for each scenario, analyses price per page, and identifies best-sellers and titles that are available in print or foreign-language versions.

Please note: there is no “added value” beyond what you could get by reading all 340+ product descriptions for yourself and deciding what to buy. If you have ever been frustrated searching three years’ output on DriveThruRPG, and wished that there was an easier way to find scenarios your group can use, this comprehensive catalogue might be just what you need.

Updated on 28 November 2020 with more recent releases.

Do you plan to update this over time?

If there is enough interest in it, yes.

NB: I also maintain an index for Chaosium’s RuneQuest community content web store, which has sold almost 300 copies, received 18 5* reviews and been updated several dozen times already this year.

If only a few people buy this spreadsheet, or it doesn’t get good ratings/feedback, I will probably find other things to do with my time.

Any updates will of course be free to all previous purchasers. Frequency depends entirely on interest.

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.
