The Strawman


Urban Legend Comes to Life

Everyone has heard a urban legend of the Scarecrow murdering innocent people. Now it seems to have become real. This small farm town is not your normal tourist destination…

Four murders in small town, slashed to death, straw found at the scene. A scarecrow was seen fleeing the scene of the last murder.  The madness seems to be a contagious outbreak. 10 people have gone insane. The numbers just don’t add up. The last murder happened happened over 20 years ago. This was a peaceful place, until 8 months ago. A madness outbreak - ten people have gone insane, that have been reported. People missing, or murdered.

The urban legend of the Straw Man has taken on new meaning. Is he behind the murders? Is it causing people to go insane? Back in the 1950’s, the state was terrorized by serial killer dressed as the Scarecrow and armed with a sickle. Has he come back?

Will your investigators survive? Physically AND mentally? Got to play it to find out.

A modern day Call of Cthulhu 7e adventure for 2-6 investigators.
Over 40 pages, containing full color maps and a complete list of NPCs. And enough sanity blasting goodness even for the hardened investigator.

My purchase contains the files for the handouts and the pre-gen characters, but it doesn't seem to have the adventure itself. Am I supposed to download that part somewhere else?

My apologies. I had made a minor edit and re-uploaded and something went wrong. It should be there now.

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.
