Some things are better kept hidden…

The Trail of Cthulhu Keeper’s Screen gives you the most important tables, rules and references for GUMSHOE. Combat, contests, tests and the mind-shattering Stability tables are there at your fingertips, giving you more time for GMing, and less fumbling through rule books. And, on the players’ side, Jérôme Huguenin’s breathtaking artwork will add to your game’s eldritch atmosphere.

  • With the screen is the Keeper’s Resource Book; not the last scribbled words of a madman, but a carefully researched collection of clues, special benefits, game-relevant historical data, NPCs and occupational information for use in play.
  • Each ability is listed with 1930s equipment and practices focussed on their use in adventures to bring your game to life. Sprinkle the sample clues we provide, and offer the listed special benefits to your players.
  • Occupations have detailed backgrounds you can use to flesh out character backgrounds and NPC contacts; discover their techniques, weaknesses and foibles.
  • Need a mad scientist or a fence? Select from a range of NPCs, some throw-away thugs and cultists, others, detailed contacts with forbidden knowledge, partrician academics, antique book dealers and professional rivals. Each NPC has three quirks or mannerisms so that you can roleplay them consistently, and hooks they can provide to your players.

Finally, there is handy Sanity and Stability summary, with page references to the main book. With amazing artwork, and superb resources, forbidden knowledge has never been so much fun!Exclusive PDF content: The PDF version offers a collection of 91 photographs of period-relevant material gleaned during the author's research.

The screen is provided for easy printing in A4 and Letter size, with complete printing instructions.

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.
