Description:

A Resection of Time is a short campaign for Call of Cthulhu set in the modern day. It begins in early April, in San Francisco, and ends a little later in the steamy jungles of Belize, in Central America. Before plunging into the dark heart of the ancient Mayan world, the investigators also travel to Los Angeles and shadowy Arkham.

The details of Mayan architecture, culture, epigraphy, and theology, as well as the experts on these topics named in the scenario, are all real, modified slightly where appropriate to incorporate the Mythos. Likewise, the places mentioned herein (save, of course, for the Sanboume Institute and Arkham), particularly the Belize locations, are real, although described for dramatic impact.

“A resection of time” is a well though out and exciting scenario, - in short its 1990s Call of Cthulhu done right! Good things: - A good story! - The characters backgrounds stories are not what it seems, so the horror is also on a personal level [...]

As PDF: Perfectly acceptable scan, no problems with file, images etc. As adventure: Quite a fun modern-era Cthulhu adventure involving ancient Mayan ruins, buried memories and a fair amount of the usual insanity, bloodshed and unwinnable fights. A [...]

This module is a great price. The handouts are nicely detailed and the adventure of average length (took our group three 8 hour sessions). The only thing I changed, is one of the secondary enemies. I like my cthulhu adventures full of non-human nasties [...]

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.
