Storm From A Teacup

Suggested Price $2.59

This one-shot adventure for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition is designed for 1-3 players plus a Keeper with a 1920s "classic" setting and tone, but could also work with Pulp Cthulhu too.

A new tea has become the "in thing" amongst the jazz set of Pineview's youth, and while some of its imbibers report a fun but strange hallucinatory effect, others are seeing much more sinister - and even madness inducing - visions.

Where did this tea come from? Are its drinkers really seeing monsters? The Investigators are being tasked with finding out...

Developed and written as part of the Storytelling Collective's Summer 2021 Write Your First Adventure workshop, this scenario encompasses a 16 page adventure (plus handouts) involving 'old money' establishment, indifferent law enforcement, jazz-enjoying youth, bootleggers, sinister cultists, dark magick and a glimpse into the horrors of the Mythos.

The scenario includes "less-lethal" and "full danger" options to suit a range of Keepers and players, with different possible ending outcomes as well as the potential for the adventure's events to connect to a subsequent mysteries or provide experience for Investigators in future investigations.

NOTE THIS IS A REVIEW OF A GAME IN-PROGRESS (MAY BE SPOILERS FOR PLAYERS) We've run our first session with this scenario, and overall we're having a lot of fun. Now, I used this as a base for a homebrew scenario set in Arkham [...]

The use of tea as a central theme in this scenario is a great idea! I also appreciated the generic location which gave me the flexibility to slot this into my ongoing campaign set in 1929 Chicago. I simply popped my investigator on a bus out to a more [...]

NB this is a readthrough and not a playthrough review. Here is proof that a great cover can 'stir' your interest (excuse the pun). Also, being an Englishman anything featuring the word 'Tea' is going to draw me in like a mot [...]

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.
