The Hounds of Salem

Hair-raising Mystery in the Miskatonic Valley

"My God, my dear God, I know now: thou hast not forsaken thy child."

Arkham, 1923. Rumours of a mysterious crime start plaguing the Miskatonic University: two ancient and forbidden tomes have been stolen from the Orne Library.

Suspecting an annoying form of student mischief, unpleasant senior professor Alexander Wallace calls forth a group of eager investigators to help him track down the missing tomes. He hopes it may be a matter of asking just a few questions around campus. As it happens, the truth is way darker than it first appears.

The Hounds of Salem is a Call of Cthulhu adventure taking place between Arkham and Salem. This brief scenario for 2-4 investigators will see the players chasing the shadow of religious fanaticism from Arkham to Salem, eventually crossing paths with an inter-dimensional creature and its mad summoner – a desperate father, looking to reclaim the life of his child. This scenario can be incorporated into an existing campaign in Arkham, or it could be used to kickstart an entirely new campaign to vanquish a dreadful foe.

A map supplement is available separately, for free, in collaboration with Freelance Illustrator and Designer Spiffeigh.

The Hounds of Salem is designed for use with the 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game and provides:

  • A chance to move or start your campaign in the town of Salem;
  • 6-8 hours of gameplay for 2-4 players;
  • Hair-raising horror and disturbing inter-dimensional monsters;
  • Advice on how to run and present the scenario;
  • Player handouts & DungeonDraft maps;
  • Separate maps and handouts for ease of print;
  • 4 pre-generated characters providing the best gaming and storytelling experience for both keepers and players;
  • Universal VTT files (Elrich House, Korn Leather Factory) for ease of use in FoundryVTT, Roll20 and other virtual tabletops.

CONTENT WARNING: This scenario includes mentions of self-harm and it touches upon religious fanaticism. Keepers are advised to exercise caution with their party.

This product includes a simplified document for ease of reading and print.

An easy to handle adventure. It takes place in two very famous places : Arkham & Salem.

This scenario focuses on investigation and roleplay rather than pure action. My players loved it. For those who really want a dose of action, the end of the scenario can be played in a more dynamic and aggressive way.

It can be integrated very well into an existing campaign.

A must have.

I cant post review cause I have a publisher account :(

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.
