Mutable Deceptions, Vol 1: Jazz Age Newspapers
by Johnathan B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/21/2019 19:32:17

Probably my most-used prop-making tool. The ability to create realistic newspaper clippings that are tailor-made to my senarios is fantastic! I regularly use this to create "better" versions of newspaper clippings from published modules.

Would love to see this for other eras like Victorian London!

Mark Morrison's Deadwave
by A. M. P. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/28/2018 22:53:13

The download was flawless, and the one thing I really found OK or better were layout & roleplaying stats. Deadwave delivers a crude & obvious horror, alike Zombie-Apocalypse, escaped lunatic killer, or monster-hunter aka gut-the-nextbest-orc kinda crude & mindless kinda storyline. The author insists that vengeance (revenge) and hatred are powerful, but fails to make any true connection to the Cthulhu mythos AND does not even reach the prose, game mastery, or detail level and considerations of roleplay we got from Chaosium in the first edition of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. Same with Trail of Cthulhu, as again ir has a much better grasp on what roleplaying actually means.

Others may like the concept, but I think it is completely misplaced in Call of Cthulhu, as there are games focused on the quick, mindless, and brutal kinda violence-worship. Well, actually I would still consider this too dumb and ill-prepared, when coming as a WoD-Slasher idea or with raging Sith thugs wielding red lightsabres... Bad work, to me not even worth a real review.

Deadwave is a great little adventure that can slot in nicely into just about any campaign.

Convicts & Cthulhu: Ticket of Leave #2
by Michael B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 10/08/2016 18:58:02

Full disclosure: Australian colonial history and Lovecraft are two of my hobbies, so how could I fail to love this setting?

This second scenario for Convicts & Cthulhu outlines the Great Power politics between France and Britain, especially around the Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. The source material is well researched and the writing clean and clear aside from a few editing glitches.

Essential reading for lovers of historical gaming, RPGs and fiction.

Convicts & Cthulhu: Ticket of Leave #1
by A customer [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/02/2016 21:24:23

The sheer authenticity of Convicts & Cthulhu makes it a truly excellent source book for setting the scene and one that is engagingly written. The underlying historical research is amazing -- this is more early Australian colonial history than entire classes of Australian children learn! -- and sufficiently gritty to make you wonder what was going on in the backstreets of Sydney at the time. Forked lightning frozen in the sky, violent and inhuman murders from one end of the colony to the other, prophetic visions, rumours of undiscovered cities, the birth of would-be unicorns...all true -- or, at least, all actually reported as having occured. C&C makes for a fascinating read from that standpoint alone. The production standards are good with detailed maps and illustrations of a high quality. The location descriptions and details are well conveyed. The scenario hooks on offer are extensive and there is helpful advice on character classes and skill sets appropriate to the era. The Aboriginal contribution to the history of the time is not neglected and everything from weapons to Yowies (the Blue Mountains sub-species, anyway) is covered. With this book in hand, early colonial Sydney is the place to be when it comes to bringing on the Shoggoths.

Geoff Gillan's The Past Is Doomed
by Ben S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 08/06/2016 05:04:30

This is a creepy adventure full of ambience and oddness. It has an unusual but appropriate feel for a cthulhu scenario. Certainly worth getting to check out.

Convicts & Cthulhu
by Ben S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 07/29/2016 17:03:29

This is a great Cthulhu setting and being Pay What You Want, the price is right. There's one free adventure available which is worth getting. Cthulhu and 19th century Australia go along great together!

Scenario Upgrade Pack: "In The Shadows"
by Bret K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/08/2015 08:16:14

I really appreciate this product being made available as it rescues some otherwise potentially unplayable scenarios from obscurity. "In the Shadows" was best known not for being a collection of three scenario (at least one of which is a classic in my opinion) but for the fact that the handouts were utterly unreadable and nearly impossible to even photocopy. Considering the very low price that the original book can be had for on this site, I think Keepers should definitely give "In the Shadows" another look - these revamped handout really do make a difference and, at just over $2 per scenario, are a truly great value - especially for those hungry for material using the 7th Edition rules.

Well done - it is great to see this scenario collection effectively 'reborn' if you'll forgive the pun.
