Four Heart-Pounding Pulp Adventures for Trail of Cthulhu

Strolling Arkham’s fog-veiled streets, you stumble across a humble antiquarian bookshop you’ve never before noticed. Driven by the febrile compulsions of the committed bibliophile, you slip inside. Soon you find yourself in its ill-lit basement, the stench of rotting paper assailing your nostrils. Ducking down, your fingers lunge for a cardboard box filled with curled, yellow-edged old magazines.

The lurid covers assault your senses! Can it be? Though you consider yourself an expert on the pulp magazines of the thirties, these titles are oddly unfamiliar to you. You scan the cover stories—each is an exemplar of its time, yet infused by a distinctly Lovecraftian sensibility.

  • Devourers In the Mist: A rugged adventure tale in which the survival of island castaways is tested not only by the elements — but by the twisted shapes of half-seen, sadistic entities who haunt the atoll’s jungled interior!
  • Shanghai Bullets: Guns-blazing danger portends and international intrigue unfurls in the city of conspiracy, the licentious, opium-infused Berlin of the East. In the shadow struggle between nations, no weapon is more fiercely coveted than the star mirror. It brings blood-draining death from beyond the stars!
  • Death Laughs Last : When philanthropist and gadabout Addison Bright is found bizarrely murdered in his own New York mansion, only a team of doughty investigators can protect his reputation—and the sanity of mankind—from the awful truths lurking in his tragically colorful past.
  • Dimension Y : A scientific experiment yields the promise of a glimpse into an adjoining reality, a repository of man’s dreams and memories. But when the heroes peer through this window... they find cosmic horror peering back at them!

A bang resounds above your head — the basement door slamming shut. You’re trapped in the crypt of impossible pulps! But before you meet your deserved fate, you can take your final pleasures in this collection of exciting pulp-style scenarios for Trail Of Cthulhu , the GUMSHOE game of Lovecraftian investigative horror.

Another excellent supplement to the Trail of Cthulhu RPG. Stunning Eldritch Tales offers a selection of interesting scenarios for those that love playing pulp-flavored investigations in which PCs battle horrors with shotguns, tommy guns, and dynamite. [...]

Again, Megan Robertson did an excellent review of this product, with which I thoroughly agree. I note in passing though, that the "see Page XX" comment could as easily be made about the scenario in the Trail of Cthulhu rule book to, and so I went to the [...]

Herewith a collection of four adventures for Trail of Cthulhu, all firmly set in the Pulp style. No preamble, guess the assumption is that you know what you are looking for when you pick this up, just straight in to the first adventure. The first adven [...]

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.
