Trail of Cthulhu: The Dying of St Margaret's


The Dying Of St Margaret's is a Purist adventure for Trail of Cthulhu.


The Dying Of St Margaret's is an exploration character and madness in the spirit of HP Lovecraft.

On the remote Scottish island of St Margaret’s, Investigators take jobs at an all-girls private school. Each is searching for an acquaintance who disappeared from the school. The Investigators' Drives carry them forward with increasing excitement and anticipation.

But what they discover drives them to the edge of insanity.

In this supplement, there is no escape, no comfort, no salvation when faced with the Mythos. You are powerless and insignificant: your only choices are death, insanity or a quiet life with a shattered mind.

Guns will not help you, reason will not protect you, faith will not give you comfort.

Written from the creator of Play Unsafe, it is a very different way to follow the Trail of Cthulhu.

I made some modifications and ran this scenario as a mission for my Warhammer: 40,000 Dark Heresy group and it was a success. Overall this is a great short game scenario that captures an atmosphere of suspense and mystery. I think that the author did [...]

As written, this adventure follows the 'Pure' track, sheer creeping horror with no easy answers (and nothing you can fight). If that doesn't appeal, do not move on, there are notes on how to run it as a 'Pulp; style adventure instead. The Introduction [...]

this as with all the purist adventures is genuinely creepy and on the level with what MRP is doing for there more purist stuff. one point of consideration is to make sure that your players know what a purist scenario entails in the level of survivabili [...]

I purchased this product as part of the “Purist Adventures” bundle. The Dying of Saint Margaret’s is a slow paced investigation filled with dread and despair. It is well written, and the layout and artwork are topnotch. It comes with some great [...]

The Dying of St. Margaret's is an adventure written by Graham Walmsley that falls into what Pelgrane calls its Purist scenarios for the Trail of Cthulhu RPG. What that means is that it's designed to evoke the feel and style of H.P. Lovecraft's stories [...]

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.
