The Brutal House

In a search for deeper artistic insight, a sculptor has opened himself to the King in Yellow. The Tattered King has given the artist understanding into the nature of reality far beyond that which humankind was meant to comprehend. Pouring this sense of awe into his work has elevated Hildred Santo to fashionable new heights in the art world, but the King’s hold and the lure of Carcosa is proving strong, and now the artist’s visions, dreams and memories have been made manifest in his studio. The doomed artist wanders in this space between this world and Carcosa. It is up to the investigators to cross over into that world and bring him back.
The Brutal House is a modern-day scenario set in the Cotswolds of England but can be changed with minimal effort to another time or place. It is designed for the 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game and normally runs over two sessions of play.
  • A 16-page adventure
  • Six pre-generated player-characters with backgrounds and character portraits

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.
