The Castle of Greed

Selected Option:

Satisfy your hunger in this delicious 1930s Scenario for Call of Cthulhu

The year is 1933 and the place El Dorado, Kansas, and a new sensation is set to sweep the United States. A savvy businessman has acquired the first restaurant making innovative “fast food”. Scientifically balanced food, a bargain at 5c per slider - grab ‘em by the bag! Sam Madson knows he’s got what it takes to make it big, just like his father. After all, success is in his blood. Now, if only his wife would stop complaining of dark omens and strange visions…

The Castle of Greed is a scenario appropriate for 2-4 players.

It can be played within 4 hours for a convention run, or it can be leisurely expanded into following its multiple adventure seeds.

Within this scenario are included:

  • 4 NPC characters & 2 portraits
  • 3 handouts that make the scenario come to life
  • 3 pieces of amazing original artwork by talented artists
  • 4 pre-generated investigators with their own portraits and backstory
  • 2 original monsters and 1 ritual
  • 3 randomised or fillable tables to help inspire and structure your run-through
  • Plenty of information is also included for new Keepers to run this adventure, as well as advice on what to do in different eventualities.

This scenario will be played on the Stars Are Right podcast very soon! Follow us for all the newest updates!

Nice offbeat game, with an uncommon ending. Scope for humour. Can be successfully completed without fighting. Things I added/would like to see in future editions: Character portraits for Edmund “Eddy” Irwing & William Andrew [...]

A really great, short but sharp scenario within the fun setting of an old timey burger restaurant! Our playthrough of this scenario can be found on The Fumbled Anthology podcast and we had a great time! As the keeper, it was super simple and quick to [...]

This is a great scenario. The pregens have some good roleplay hooks for the players and the scenario contains guidance for the GM to be ready for whatever investigative route the players want to take. I've been a player and found it very creepy as the [...]

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.
