Prisoners' Dilemma: Inspired by the true life Dyatlov Pass Incident

Strange events are afoot in 1920s Russia. The investigators, all prisoners of the Russian State, have been press-ganged into service in the barren, frozen wilderness of central Russia. As members of the investigators' traveling party are exposed to the machinations of an original Mythos terror, the prisoners will quickly run out of allies as it becomes less and less clear who they can trust, and who--if anyone--might be working for the supernatural forces that hound them.

Presenting a survival horror tone and heavy doses of cosmicism, Prisoners' Dilemma is a slow burn scenario intended for an experienced Keeper and 3 to 6 players. This 55-page module offers a linear plot tinged with heavy degrees of distrust and suspicion, including elements that might lead players to distrust one another. It comes ready to play with 6 pre-generated investigators.

See what the experts are saying:

"The whole scenario is arranged to support the keeper."

"Top-notch line illustrations from artist Christopher Olson set the mood."

- Stephen Pennisi,

"Nasty one-shot"

"Detailed plot, four decent handouts, three maps, six pre-generated Investigators, and a new thing from beyond."

I really enjoyed how the authors took a real-life mysterious event and put a Lovecraft spin on it. The artwork is also surprisingly good for a fan-made scenario as it looks like art that Chaosium could have commisioned for any of their official scenari [...]

A detailed and grim module that immerses the group in a time and place very different from the usual Cthulhu locations. Well-researched, with an original monster and a delightful dash of body horror! [...]

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.
