The Harlotville Horror


There’s Oil in Them Thar Hills!

It’s 1929 and, with the Hobbs Strike of last year, it’s time to go looking for oil again.  As employees of the Northwest Refining Company, you’ve been tasked with following up on some college professor’s clues that there might be a good deal of oil under the Plains of San Augustine.  But there are a few unanswered questions.  For instance, why is a vice-president of the company organizing the whole operation instead of one of the managers?  And why did he bring his secretary?  No one knows what happened to the ghost town of Harlotville nearly 75 years ago, but you’re only going to be about 20 miles from civilization so nothing could really go wrong, could it?

The Harlotville Horror was originally written as a convention scenario but is detailed enough for home play.  The scenario for Call of Cthulhu is set in the summer of 1929.  With only a little modification it can be adapted to different times or places.  If the horror that lingers in Harlotville is not defeated or destroyed by the investigators, perhaps someone else is up to the task. 

The Harlotville Horror  includes:

- A 25-page fully-illustrated and deadly scenario set in the Plains of San Augustine, New Mexico, with information on the state, Catron and Socorro Counties, the plains, some of the surrounding towns and communities, the Midwest Refining Company, oil in New Mexico, and methods for finding oil.

- A new magical tome, magical item, and spell.

- Information on a unique mythos creature that has never before appeared in a Call of Cthulhu product.

- Non-player characters, creatures, and animals likely to be found on the Plains of San Augustine.

- Maps of Western New Mexico, Harlotville, and the brothel there, including blank maps for the players.

- Four handouts.

- Six Pregenerated investigators.

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.
