Goodnight Vienna


Goodnight Vienna is a one-off scenario in which the players are the crew of an Allied bomber returning to their North African base after a raid on Naples in late 1942. Malfunctioning equipment on the plane means all they know is that they are somewhere over the Mediterranean and, after twelve hours flying, it is time to bail out. A horrible struggle for survival awaits below.

The scenario deals in detail with parachute landing, survival in hostile environments and the specifics of reaching safety plus the mythos threat that lies in wait. Goodnight Vienna is set up in two versions to accomodate either 3-4 players (flying a British Bristol Blenheim) or 5-8 (flying an American B24 Liberator). 12 Pre-gens are included as well as bail-out scripts, equipment lists, handouts, illustrations of key locations and Keeper reference sheets for crew stats.

The scenario Goodnight Vienna previously appeared as the first scenario in Chaosium's Miskatonic University Library Association Monograph Shadows of War (2008). It works for convention gaming (8 player version) and equally well for more usual group sizes (3-4 player version). It has been thoroughly revised for 7th edition Call of Cthulhu, giving both versions of the scenario equal weight and detail, and including new features such as standees for each character, indicating who they are on the front and what they know about their fellow crew members on the back.

Its time to make the leap.

Without wanting to be mean or anything: why would one buy the reprint where the chararistics have been multiplied by 5?
Or is there any other difference?

If you have the original, you can easily convert it yourself, but it is out of print. Conversion to 7th edition involves a bit more than what you describe; some skills have changed, some methods of bonuses and penalties are different, etc. Apart from these changes, I have also revised the scenario structure and shifted the 4 man British version from an Appendix to being equally supported side by side with the 8 man American version. Each version has a separate set of pre-gens (a lot of stats to convert) and, new to this edition, each pre-gen has its own standee and individual bail-out handout.

Is there any chance other publication from MULA Shadows of War being released in MR in the future?

Yes, if this one rewards the efforts made to convert to 7E. Is there a particular scenario you are keen to see released?

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.
