The Folly of Ponsonby-Wild


The Folly of Ponsonby-Wild is the first Scenario in a four part classic 1920s Call of Cthulhu campaign, A Very British Horror.

Set in England, a group of people are invited to the funeral of their old friend’s husband. But his death is not all that it seems. This man was embroiled in a dark cult whose tendrils reach far into the heart of the British establishment. Through a series of horrifying events and clues discovered around the hotel in which they are staying, the investigators slowly uncover the truth behind the sudden death and glimpse fragments of the truth behind the Cult of P’Nath.

Life sucking creatures from beyond our world, malevolent entities beyond our comprehension, and portals to unseen realities all play a part in this story. As does a delicious cream tea in a delightful country setting.

18 pages of scenario and information, 9 pages of high quality handouts and maps, and five pre-generated characters to use at your discretion are included in the book, as well as a campaign overview to give the keeper an understanding of where this episode fits into the overarching plot. Subsequent scenarios are: The Wombwell Stones (available now!), The Secret of Stourgate and The Veil of P’Nath.

This scenario can just as easily be run as a stand alone episode or assimilated into your ongoing game.

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.
