A Lone Collection


After thwarting a theft on the streets of 1890s Chicago, an old gentleman offers you a job of guarding his collection of strange artifacts while he is away. As the guard, your choices lead to mystery, mythos, magic, and even death while guarding... A Lone Collection.

Content Warning: solo rpg adventure -- meant for one player or one player and a Keeper.

Secondary Content Warning: destitution and, depending on player choices: investigator death, failure, murder, body horror, moral dilemmas.

Note: The author coined the term “Softcraftian” to describe her usual style of less-lethal Call of Cthulhu adventures. This adventure contains definite investigator lethality. Entries that lead to harsh consequences are marked with an * in the simplified document and a Paisley symbol in the stylized document.


     * easy pick-up-and-go style -- no player knowledge needed!

     * 96 pages of replayable adventure

     * 1 blank investigator sheet

     * 1 characteristic-filled and skill-recommended pregenerated investigator

     * option to keep investigator for the sequel

NOTE: my computer died so I did not have the option to do a stylized version. When my new computer is in, I can start work on the stylized version with a better cover, hyperlinks, and interior art!

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.
