grindhouse [grahynd-hous] n. – A grindhouse or action house is an American slang term for a theatre that mainly shows low-budget horror, splatter and exploitation films for adults.

    These aren’t your typical Call of Cthulhu scenarios where some classy, well-dressed investigator sips tea and pours over leather books in some wood paneled library.
    These are burning dumpsters of pure horror where a fleeing private investigator limps through some filthy back alley on a busted ankle while a howling pack of mutants try to beat them to death with the limbs of their dead friends.
    In other words, these are not for the faint of heart, and are intended for mature audiences only. Player discretion is advised.

The Grindhouse Holiday Special!

Silent Night, Gory Night
It’s December 21st, 1978 in New England. The region has been hit by the blizzard of the century, leaving millions without power. In one particular apartment building, the tenants have decided to have an impromptu holiday party to make the most of a bad situation, but they soon begin hearing strange bumps and scratching coming from the walls. They might have dismissed the sounds as evidence of a rat infestation if it weren’t for the fact that they seemed to be playing music.

Unlike the previous Grindhouse books, this features a single scenario that includes 4 pre-gens, handouts, and floor plans for The Cranford Building. It should be playable in a single, 4 hour session, though a role play heavy group could stretch it out by a couple hours.

Note that this is a limited release scenario, and it will no be availavble after the holidays. Get 'em while they last!

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.
