Journal d'Indochine, Volume 1

Journal d'Indochine, Volume 1


Journal d’Indochine is a set of scenarios and campaign resources for the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition roleplaying game set in French colonial Vietnam (~1925 to 1955).

The first half of the 20th century was a time of chaos and political ferment in French Indochina. As foreign imperialists struggled to maintain their precarious grip on the region, the people of the land worked to overthrow their tormentors. Radical religious movements like the Cao Dai sprung up to spread the blessings of a strange and unfathomable God. Hòa Hảo Buddhist militias supported the prophecy of the return of a king. Binh Xuyen gangsters schemed to gain territory for their criminal enterprises. All the while student revolutionaries preached new, secular philosophies that promised utopia for the downtrodden workers.

While the world seethed with conflict and change, hidden entities from far off in time and space have taken root in the jungles, gained footholds on the beaches and found supplicants in the cities of Indochine. Some of these entities offer the temptation of enlightenment and power to those who could unlock their eldritch secrets. While some of these entities simply desire some hors d'oeuvre after a long hibernation.

This is Volume 1 of the Journal d'Indochine project, funded with the support of our Kickstarter Backers. This purchase includes a 114 page booklet of handouts, pregens, and related Lore Sheets. Also bundled with this digital download is Operation: Grass Cutter, a bonus scenario included in Volume 2. Volume 2 is also available on DTRPG.

As a baguette-eater myself I am very happy to have found this supplement! I don't know much about this not-that-proud part of our history, and eager to discover it with some tentacles as flavoring.

Wil be interesting read. looking forward to tread this. one thing that i notice that some handouts, a few of them have bright background and white text which makes them impossible to read on screen. for example page 48 of main book or page 16 in handout booklet. At least in acrobat reader. Couldn't find any instructions of any kind if need to do something. Am I missing something for acrobat?

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.
