“Have you not heard that the trojan horse Had seventy men in his belly? 
To the Dragon this horse was not so big But very near I tell thee” 
-Anon, The Dragon of Wantley, C17th 

1920s England: No-one who had ever met Flora Jacobs would describe her as scandalous, but when the young socialite mysteriously disappeared on a trip up north with a man she had only recently met, intrigue was sure to follow. What on the surface appears to be an ‘innocent elopement’ will lead the investigators to a quiet Yorkshire village with a big secret to unearth.

The Dragon of Wantley is a sandbox style scenario designed for three to five players to be run over one to two sessions (3-8 hours). It is available in both PDF and Print-on-Demand.

This scenario is designed for 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu and contains: 

  • 58 pages with additional historical and background detail;
  • Full colour handouts, and maps;
  • Five pre-generated investigators;
  • An additional print-friendly pdf;
  • An stl file of an additional handout for 3D printing
  • An audio recording of the titular ballad

"This scenario is fun and interesting ... we had a fantastic time playing it" -- XPLovecat

"Well polished and the backstory from a folk legend is clever and compelling." -- Michael S.

I’ve been asked what I want for Christmas and I may add this to my list of books to give to friends and family. Do you need to buy the pdf version to get access to the add ons?

Hi Neil,
The permanent link to the downloadabre extras (digital handouts, STL file) is provided in the Print on Demand book so you won't miss out on them if you don't get the pdf.

Stuart, quick question: is the scenario built for the pre-generated characters, or can players use their own? Thanks!

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.
