A murder...
A painting that speaks of the past...
An unexpected visitor...

A Boarding House is a meeting place for strangers. When one of the tenants appears murdered, everyone is a suspect.

An intricated pulp horror scenario where the players will face their own humanity to give a solution to the enigma.

The Boarding House at Arkham Street is an adventure for Horror RPGs inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft and his circle, and that aims to represent the Pulp mood typical from the 30's in the United States. It is not prepared for any gaming system, but it should be easy for you to adapt it to your preferences without much effort.

In this adventure, the characters are part of the residents in a Boarding House during the Great Depression in the United States, when the winds of war in ye olde Europe begin to be heard.

During the second night of the game one of the female tenants will be found dead. Apparently, there is nothing unnatural in the murder...

Do you want to know what we are talking about? Fair enough.

SPOILERS - This beautiful 32-page adventure focuses less on traditional investigation than roleplaying the theatrical mood of a mythos story. Even if your players aren't up for that sort of scenario, the adventure can be easily adapted into a boarding [...]

I generally don't run pre-made scenarios, but after reading this (and considering running a Call of Cthulhu game) I'm planning on running this adventure. It's creepy and allows the players to have the latitude to truly explore the adventure with little [...]

This is a creepy little scenario, written for (though it certainly doesn't require) a casual sort of pace over several sessions, with a copy of one of this publisher's maps as another reviewer mentioned. Although officially systemless, the suggested ru [...]

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.
