The Dilemma in the Desert

ADD TO WISHLIST >

"NOTE: Material in this book deals with mature themes. GMs are advised to adjust their presentation of this subject matter in accordance with their own and their group’s comfort levels."

The scenario is about a group of investigators who are travelling to attend an initation ceremony in an isolated location at Scotty's Castle in Death Valley. The scenario incorporates initially an element of paranoia between the investigators who dont know each other and dont know who they can trust. Each investigator has there own individual reason for being here which makes for some good opportunities to roleplay.

The scenario has a sub plot where there is a mystery murder that needs to be solved. A who done it scenario. Npcs need to be interviewed and the murderer must be found.

The main scenario proceeds to a desert exploration interaction with indigenous people and confrontation with minor Mythos entitie.

What a cool scenario. I love the use of a real-life location. The maps and photos for it are awesome. I think this is definitely a scenario for an experienced Keeper to run. It has several moving parts, and newbie Keepers might now be able to keep track of all of the events that are triggering. This is definitely a scenario that needs to be in each Keeper's collection. (4.5 Stars)

Whilst I am not able to write a Review officially, I wanted to say this is a great adventure. I like the timeline and closed nature of the module, allowing us to run this in a few short sessions. The incorporation of local tribe initiations and tying them to the Mythos was a cool addition, empowering the tribesfolk as custodians of the lands and protectors of the world without them realising. I thought that was a nice touch. Definitely worth checking out.

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.
