Alone Against the Tide

Suggested Price $4.99

Alone Against the Tide is a solo-play adventure designed to be run with no Keeper and only using the Call of Cthulhu 7th edition Quickstart rules. The scenario is designed for ease of use, and requires no preparation to pick up and play. The adventure itself takes place in the lakeside resort town of Esbury, Massachusetts. You, the player, are going to Esbury in the wake of the death of a Professor William Harris, who has left behind many questions as to his mysterious suicide, a grieving widow, and collection of rare and valuable antiquities. Whatever your business here, you will soon learn that maybe Esbury isn’t the best place for a vacation spot. When things take a violent and mysterious turn, you find yourself Alone Against the Tide...and with little hope of survival.

Rather amusing, all the creative ways my characters could die...

All in all, great scenario!

I've never played a Cthulhu based RPG before. I downloaded the free basic rules as stated by Nicolas, used a pre-made character and went on. I love the story, the rules are not that difficult and had a blast!
Highly recommended!!

Thank you for the interest! I've had others asking for a PoD option as well, so I'll start looking into that.

After looking into it, I've found that it isn't possible to have a PoD option of this due to the content guidelines of DrivethruRPG. I'd love to, but I cannot do so for reasons beyond my control.

Thanks for the link, but this particular item is not PoD there yet. I'd buy it as soon as it becomes PoD. Thanks for looking into it.

Any plans for hard copy POD?

Not at the moment, unfortunately. I'd love to see something like that in the future, but at the moment there isn't really much demand for it.

I'd buy this as POD.

Original electronic
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.
