A scenario by Zachary Pagram. St. Dymphna’s Orphanage: Azathoth’s Children takes the players on a mischievous romp around an orphanage after lights out. Players step into the role of orphaned children transferring to St. Dymphna’s Orphanage, where they get up to all sorts of trouble and in doing so uncover a nefarious mystery.

A matron weary of misbehaving children performs a dark ritual to control the orphans under her shelter. Her treasured music box, a family heirloom from a wealthier time, is touched by a wandering tendril of the great Azathoth’s sleeping mind. An unholy pact is formed.

Players enter the world of H. P. Lovecraft as orphans in an adventure against a malevolent matron and her cursed music box.

St. Dymphna’s Orphanage: Azathoth’s Children is designed for 2-4 players and can be played in one sitting. The package includes:

  • Four pre-generated character sheets (optional)
  • Advice for how to run and convey the mood of the adventure
  • Map of St. Dymphna’s Orphanage
  • The orphanage daily schedule
  • A separate file with ready to print Player Handouts

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.
