Deep-Seeded Secrets


Welcome to the GM's Day sale! From now through March 10th, this title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more values, visit our GM's Day sale page.

Ipswich, Massachusetts. December 1922. Investigators follow a cryptic letter to a Colonial-era homestead-turned-hotel which floats more than a cultural past. Amid a foul odor and rumors of hauntings and a shipwreck, they barely tread water in the sea of secrets harbored at the Hart House.

Content Warning: controlling parents, mention of ritual sacrifice and adoption, implied rape of a man, and mention of indigenous peoples using antiquated terms.

Deep-Seeded Secrets is a 1920s Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition one-shot for 3-6 players that continues from the first adventure, Taken For Granite, or can be played as a one-shot adventure. Players choose one of two paths which ultimately leads to altering the fate of the unchosen path. The Appendix includes:

  • 6 optional pregenerated character sheets
  • 7 NPC portraits and 8 NPC stat blocks
  • 14 player handouts
  • A map of Ipswich, Mass.
  • 1 Table for Rummaging
  • 1 Table for Beach Flotsam
  • 2 arts & crafts handouts
  • Historic Notes highlighting neat bits of history

Bringing to life real locations and fictional fates, the Amor Fati series continues with Mail-Order Bribe and Ebon Roots coming Summer 2022 and Winter 2023.

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.
