Watermarked PDF

“My friends and crewmembers. Today is a great one for Galilee Heavy Industries. We have what could be a new Eden below us, and the profits to our masters and the Human Race will be great. We have some issues, however...."

Darkness in the Void

Set in the near future, Darkness in the Void is a short scenario for use with 7th edition Call of Cthulhu™. This scenario is suitable for three to six players and can be completed in two nights. Humanity has explored much of the Solar System and has now set its sights on the mysteries that lie beyond. 

First Contact Leads to Death and Disaster on a Strange Alien World
An Alien Planet

Galilee Heavy Industries has ordered the investigators (trained officers who work within their space program) to travel thousands of light-years from Earth, where one of their interstellar drones has discovered and begun exploring a habitable planet.

The scenario begins with the investigators awakening from suspended animation in the new system, far from home. The faster than light engines of the Pavel Sukhoi have carried the investigators across the void, powering down near a strange new world: Rizpah-160B. The planet holds mysteries and terrors the likes of which they have never dreamed of, or experienced in their worst nightmares.

The scenario is supported by 3 maps (including the map of the Pavel Sukhoi, new weapons, new skills and skill changes for use in outer space, 6 pre-gens, and two alien creatures.

The description says: "The planet holds mysteries and terrors the likes of which they have never dreamed of, or experienced in their worst nightmares."
My question is: "where?"
The party recovers a couple drones, has a combat against native spider/insect analogues, and a single paragraph "Further Adventures" describes "a strange alien signal, or even the remnants of an alien civilization."

Yeah, that would have been nice to see.

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.
