The Black Seal #4

Selected Option:

“That is not dead which can eternal lie…”

The magazine of modern horror gaming, The Black Seal, is back from an extended suspended animation with an 80-page issue for Call of Cthulhu seventh edition.

The Black Seal #4 is an issue about the ‘persistence of life’ with six articles and scenarios related to this theme or are adjacent to it. Filling out the rest of the issue are articles about cults and lobotomies (we like to cover a lot of ground), and a report on a strange alien artefact.

  • Unusual Suspects: the ‘It’ Girl – Howard David Ingham describes a party girl with a dark secret.
  • Mythmaiden – Chloe Summerfield describes the Horned God to the Establishment.
  • Objet d’Mythos: Bleak Relay – Andrew Kenrick’s summary of missing Mi-Go weaponry mistaken as alien tech.
  • The Personality of Cults – Graeme Price’s advice on using cults better in your Call of Cthulhu game.
  • A Daughter For The Great God Pan – is a scenario by Giles Hill and Nick Brownlow about a super-mythos-model going off the rails. Horror and gunplay ensues.
  • Dangerous Places: New Carcosa – Ben Counter presents a possible ‘New Eden’ in Canada.
  • Slugs and Snails – Howard David Ingham’s scenario of British public school, teenage emotions and Yidhra.
  • Unusual Suspects: Sarah Hardcastle – Henry Reeder describes a modern-day witch-slash-business tycoon who talks to an Ancient British spirit guide.
  • Under the Knife: Psychosurgery – Graeme Price outlines the history, theory and practice of lobotomies, and how keepers can use them in their Call of Cthulhu games.

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.
