“Two Lost Golden-Age Scenarios by Kevin A. Ross — Re-Animated from their Essential Saltes”

This PDF collects two early scenarios written by Kevin Ross, a titan of the Lovecraftian RPG scene and one of the writers responsible for setting the long-term direction for the whole hobby in its early days. His career as a published writer began in 1989 (with the publication of a scenario that incidentally first gave famous form to The Yellow Sign), and extended through the most prolific years of the 1990s (during which he wrote Lovecraft Country guidebooks for Kingsport and Innsmouth), right up to today.

But even those earliest published scenarios were not the first Lovecraft-inspired RPG adventures Kevin wrote. In the early-to-mid 1980s, he was already working on numerous such writing projects, completing a number of scenarios. For various reasons, none of those have seen publication.

Until now.

We're thrilled to be able to present two of these early works by Kevin, updated to work with the newest open-source D100 Lovecraftian game engine, but retaining the "old school" sensibility of the 1980s. Both these scenarios pit the Protagonists against the Mi-Go, one of HPL's most imaginative creations.

Interesting in their own right as historical documents ... these adventures also serve as great short bites of genuine classic horror.

A Night on Bald Mountain

The Protagonists learn of the curious disappearance of a relative — a reclusive uncle who lived near the town of Augustin, Vermont. Travelling to the remote but verdant region, they will become enmeshed in a mystery which has its roots in dark sorcery … and visitors from beyond the human sphere.

Mi-Go Attacking A Farmhouse

Reclamation Project

The Protagonists encounter a very odd research project being performed in secret at the university in their hometown. Why have so many of the best scientific minds on campus been summoned to provide their expertise? And why have there been a sudden spate of break-ins and prowlers reported around campus?

Mi-Go breaking into a Laboratory

Both scenarios can be played with either the open-source Cthulhu Eternal Jazz Age SRD or the Cthulhu Eternal Modern Era SRD. For your convenience we've bundled both SRDs with this scenario. The adventure also comes with isolated digital versions of all maps and illustrations, to make it easier to run on a VTT of your preference.

This is the first in our "Lost Materpieces" line of self-contained scenarios hailing from classic vintages of the Lovecraftian RPG hobby, but obscure or unfairly forgotten. "That is not dead which can eternal lie ..."

What is Cthulhu Eternal?

Cthulhu Eternal is a multi-era, setting agnostic ruleset which aims to support inventive game designers who have original ideas for Lovecraftian roleplaying games or scenarios. It draws upon the long line of D100 games of Cthulhu-themed investigation, offering a beautifully streamlined and elegant set of mechanics to support a diverse range of gaming styles. To date there are era-specific pay-what-you-want versions of comprehensive rulesets adapted for Modern games, Jazz Age games, and Victorian Era games ... with more coming.

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.
