“The Eldritch Institute is a top-secret organization investigating paranormal events and protecting humanity from supernatural threats. Founded in 1923, the institute engages in clandestine battles against otherworldly forces in what has colloquially become known as the “shadow war.”

Most missions for the institute consist of investigations and the occasional confrontation. However, every once in a while, the world is threatened by an “apocalypse event”—a mystical event so dangerous that the very existence of human civilization hangs in the balance.

You are operatives working for the Eldritch Institute. A routine mission has unexpectedly become an apocalypse event, and you are the only agents close enough to prevent it!”

Inspired by Ash vs Evil Dead, The Strain, Buffy, Dresden Files, and the Cthulhu Mythos, Eldritch Apocalypse is a standalone scenario for the Tricube Tales system and is usable as a micro-setting, but it is also a fully self-contained one-page RPG in its own right. You can print it on a single sheet of paper: The first page includes everything you need to play, while an optional second page expands the adventure generator with examples and twistsThe PDF uses layers for ease of printing.

As a bonus feature, there is also a two-page example adventure called Eldritch Apocalypse: Oldport Bay, which can be printed on both sides of a single sheet of paper.

This product can be played on its own. However, it was designed as a sequel to Eldritch Detectives, and the two products can be combined to run a short campaign. If you want to expand the setting further, you may also wish to check out Deep Trouble in Oldport Bay (which takes place several days after Eldritch Apocalypse: Oldport Bay), as well as a couple of PWYW products by other publishers: R’lyehwatch and Miskatonic Mysteries.

If you're asking about a Print-on-Demand option: The minimum shipping cost for cards to Europe is $15, so I always wait until I have several proofs I can order at once. Eldritch Apocalypse will be in the next set of proofs I order, probably in a month or two.

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.
