Deep-Seeded Secrets

Deep-Seeded Secrets


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

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 solo adventure. Players choose one of two paths which ultimately leads to altering the fate of the unchosen path. The Appendix includes:

  • 6 optional but recommended 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 optional arts & crafts handouts
  • Historic Notes highlighting neat bits of history

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

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.
