Call of Cthulhu Occupation Kit: Actor

Call of Cthulhu Occupation Kit: Actor


Play a Better Thespian!

The glow of the footlights has had a strange and compulsive power over many through the ages, as powerful as the occult. Actors, skilled in subterfuge, directing attention, passing unnoticed, cajoling, and performing feats of nimbleness might make for surprisingly good investigators of the unknown.

This guide contains research, suggestions, and inspiration for creating a character in an acting profession for Call of Cthulhu. This information will supplement what appears in the handbooks in order to help you play a more three-dimensional actor. This guide focuses on Gaslight (19th century) and Classic (1920s) periods, and suggests three period-appropriate tracks for actors: Legitimate stage, Vaudeville/music hall, and film. Includes all sorts of helpful hints on background, career paths, punlic perceptions of the profession, contacts, quotes and terminology, brief profiles of a few different historical actors, optional skills (in addition to what appears in the handbooks) and equipment with prices.

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.
