Trouble in Pinewood


The town of Pinewood is troubled. Lately livestock and even pets are disappearing during the night. If lucky, a pile of bones if found, completely cleaned of meat. People are afraid of this strange animal that must be stalking the night... Then suddenly screams erupt. The monster has abducted a man! Can the investigators find out what is happening before its too late for the monsters last victim?

Trouble in Pinewood is a short adventure using the 7th edition Call of Cthulhu rules. It is set in the 1920s in the fictional town of Pinewood in Massachusetts. It requires a Keeper to run the adventure, and can accommodate 2 to 6 investigators. It should provide an evening's worth of gaming and is suited for new players and long time players alike. Its simple set up makes it excellent as an adventure that kicks off a longer narrative, introducing the investigators to things being amiss in the world. Or it can serve as an encounter for investigators on the road.

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.
