Heartless in Loveland


A 1970s Call of Cthulhu adventure in Loveland, Ohio.

Loveland is a city with an obscure past to say the least, but things have finally started returning to normal after a number of odd occurrences in 1972 left the town labelled as a "paranormal hotspot". The weekend is almost here; Downtown Loveland bustles with business while, on the other side of town, the scouts excitedly run around the grounds of Loveland Castle. Unbeknownst to locals, a vile plot is reaching its boiling point, and is set to shake Loveland to its very foundations and change the city forever!

Heartless in Loveland is a sandbox scenario appropriate for 3-4 players, and picks up three years after 1972's real-world sightings of Ohio's most famous cryptid, the Loveland Frogman.

Enough content for at least 8 hours of thrilling gameplay, including optional encounters for extra action! This scenario has no shortage of handouts and imagery: 

  • 10 NPC character portraits
  • 6 information and clue handouts
  • 4 pre-generated characters with links to the story
  • 4 unique emblems designed for factions within the story
  • 3 location photographs and 2 maps

There is enough information on the setting and factions for creative Keepers to use Heartless in Loveland as a springboard for countless more investigations and adventures utilising the city as the home base.

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.
