A Red, Red Rose


Love, horror and death metal ...

After witnessing a horrific event on the last tram to Edinburgh city centre, investigators find themselves caught up in a centuries-old struggle between two horrific groups of creatures who inhabit the crypts and tunnels beneath the city's streets.

Will the fortune of two ill-fated lovers seal Edinburgh's fate? Who - if anyone - will the investigators choose to side with? And will they ever be the same again after attending a gig by Black Heart Dawn, a secretive and shocking death metal band?

A Red, Red Rose is a modern-day scenario for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, suitable for 3-5 investigators and designed to be completed in two or three sessions of play.

In it you will find:

  • sandbox investigation where investigators can choose how to address the issues at hand
  • Keeper notes that help those seeking to run the scenario get the best out of it
  • 12 full-colour handouts
  • diverse cast of unique characters who the investigators may meet
  • several atmospheric locations, many based on places where real supernatural events have been recorded - including a toy museum, an ancient graveyard, and a rock concert in an 18th century vault beneath the city's streets!
  • detailed maps of Edinburgh (Keeper and Investigator versions)
  • a new and deadly artefact
  • full statistics for all non-player characters and creatures
  • separate handouts-only file included in purchase
CONTENT WARNING: The scenario contains themes of cannibalism, mind control and suicide and is recommended for mature players.

A Red, Red Rose is the second scenario in The Edinburgh Files, a multu-scenario campaign set in Edinburgh in 1923 and 2023. Part 1 - The Pharaoh's Sacrifce - is already available; part 3 - The Burry Man - is coming soon!

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.
