The Perishing of Sir Ashby Phipps


Friday the 1st of June, 1866. Minor baronet Sir Ashby Phipps, a robust and even-tempered man of some fifty summers, was found dead four days ago in his garden, a look of unimaginable terror on his face. Can this really be a simple case of heart failure?

This is a slow-paced, investigation-heavy occult mystery set in Victorian Lincolnshire. It includes extensive notes on the setting which may be useful for running your own scenarios in a similar place and period. The GM's sections include suggestions for adapting the scenario to different eras and settings. It includes nearly 30 handouts.

The Perishing of Sir Ashby Phipps is suitable for a GM and one or more players. It is written for the Cthulhu Eternal percentile system, but is compatible with other percentile-based systems. It should be readily adaptable to other systems.

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.
