The Holyrood Hunt


Let the Hunt begin

Called to help decipher obscure clues hidden in the works of a 19th century artist and poet, the investigators find themselves drawn into a mysterious and ominous conspiracy that sees them follow a trail of leads around the city of Edinburgh in 1923. 

From abandoned asylums to glittering parties, investigators must use all their wits and skills to piece together the fragments of a puzzle that eventually leads them to a time and place they could never have imagined.

There, the terrible truth of what it is they have been following is finally revealed to them - and the hunters very much become the hunted!

The Holyrood Hunt is a classic era scenario for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, suitable for 3-5 investigators and designed to be completed in two or three sessions of play.

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.
