Crepid Fornication


Crepid Fornication - a murder mystery with a deep twist

This scenario for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition is set in Hamburg, Germany in 1928. Suitable for four new players, it takes 3 hours to run.

Following their invitation to Heller House, the investigators pursue their interests, artistic or otherwise. When a fellow artist is murdered, finding the one responsible is a no-brainer. Heller House, however, still harbors a deep dark secret...

This scenario was developed for players new to Call of Cthulhu. It includes eight pre-generated characters, with individual goals and roleplaying hooks that serve as investigators and NPC alike. The scenario comprises six handouts and a Mythos tome with two new spells. Crepid Fornication blends social interaction and exploration.

Being a game of horror, the story touches subjects that may not be appropriate for every player, specifically obsession, abuse, violence, incest, drug use and body horror.

This scenario was created as part of the Storytelling Collective course "Write Your First Adventure Summer 2021".

  • a formatted PDF, bookmarked for easy navigation

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.
