Don't Let Them Take You Alive

Suggested Price $0.00

Don't Let Them Take You Alive – action horror roleplaying in the Modern Cthulhu Mythos.
It's like if Guy Ritchie wrote weird fiction; or Scooby-Doo with guns.

“Oh, look, Randy's playing a scholarly milquetoast – again. How Lovecraftian of you.”
Be a cop! Be a cultist! Be a Deep One! Be an occult librarian bookmobile monster hunter!


You want a chainsaw hand? You want tentacles? You want to awaken the old gods and bring forth chaos and madness?
You got it!

It's the characters that make the story. Be what you want to be. Save the world – or destroy it.

Whoever, whatever you are. . . don’t let them take you alive.

** Over 200 modern occupations for your player characters to choose from, plus the ability to create your own new occupations gives a near limitless selection
** Over 200 cults, corporations, factions, locations, and weird things for your players to encounter as they get drawn deeper into the raging Occult Wars
** Plus MONSTERS! MONSTERS! MONSTERS! Random tables of hideous abilities allows for an infinite number of new and unknown enemies to be added to the ranks of Lovecraft favorites, classic monsters, and other foes mysterious and diabolic
** 5 adventures to unleash upon your players. Maps included!

Does Sanity replenish in this game? I can’t find a mention of Sanity recovery in the rules. Also, “Build” is listed as a stat but not explained. Can you help answer these? Thanks!

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.
