Paul Fricker (author of Gatsby & The Great Race, My Little Sister and co-author of the forthcoming 7th edition Call of Cthulhu rules) has produced a Call of Cthulhu scenario to help raise money for Cancer Research.

Dockside Dogs is a modern-day scenario for 3-6 players and includes character sheets for Mr. Beige, Mr. Purple, Mr. Black, Mr. Red, Mr. Silver and Mr. Green.

Paul said, "Our Relay for Life team was set up a few months back by a friend of mine. Little did we know it at the time, but since forming the team, both our father's were to be diagnosed with cancer. I put the finishing touches to the scenario yesterday; I'm pleased I did as my father passed away this morning. It's some comfort that my efforts may help others.

“Anybody who is familiar with Paul's previous published scenarios will know that his work is extremely imaginative and, dare I say it, genre-expanding (certainly mind-expanding). This scenario has all those same hallmarks.” - dce

“I was lucky enough to play this scenario at Gencon a few years ago, and really, really enjoyed it - I think it was my favourite con game ever - so if the excellent cause doesn't move you to pledge, I can tell you [the] scenario is easily worth $5 and more by itself.” - lordof1


This was supposed to be a simple heist.

A group of well-dressed criminals arrive at a warehouse to rendezvous after pulling off an extraordinary crime. They know each other only by their pseudonyms - Mister Black, Mister Red, Mister Green, Mister Purple, Mister Beige, Mister Silver, Mister Grey.

The plan is simply to sit tight until midnight when someone will arrive to ferry them - and the loot - across the bay to make a final delivery to the boss. Sounds easy, right?

But things take a turn for the weird; strange things happen in and around the warehouse. Things which make the criminals doubt the allegiances of the compatriots, their own sanity, and ultimately the very nature of reality.

It is going to be a long wait for the ferryman.

Dockside Dogs is a one-shot scenario for Call of Cthulhu. Four to six players take on the roles of the well-dressed criminals, hoping against all odds that they will make it through the night.


All proceeds from the sale of this scenario will go towards Cancer Research courtesy of the Relay for Life UK charity.

PURCHASER
Ran this under Savage Worlds Realms of Cthulhu. What a great, clever little scenario. The players loved it! They start off thinking crime drama, then things get a little weird, then all hell breaks loose. And when the inevitable scene arrives and the true author shows up, you will have players flipping through their character sheets and staring at you with a XXX look. Buy this and run it.

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.
