Taming the Waterwolf


Taming the Waterwolf is a historical Call of Cthulhu scenario set in the Netherlands of 1849, in the early stages of the reclamation of the country’s largest lake, the Haarlemmermeer (Haarlem’s Lake). In its course, the investigators will be inquiring into the sabotage of the Lynden, one of the three enormous steam-powered pumping mills that were constructed on the shores of the lake to facilitate its drainage. Soon they discover that the sabotage is just one of a series of strange happenings that surround the emptying lake.

Though set in the Netherlands, the scenario itself is written in English, has been designed for groups of between two to six players, and features:

  • Maps, newspaper clippings, portraits, etchings, technical drawings and other illustrations based on contemporary archival material.
  • Six pre-generated investigators and a table for generating Dutch (investigator) names.
  • Twelve player handouts.
  • Sidebars with roleplaying hooks that extend the main storyline.

Taming the Waterwolf is a scenario for Keepers that appreciate roleplaying in an unconventional historical setting.

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.
