Description:

For most people, the world appears to be a relatively safe place, filled with the usual problems associated with day to day living. There are no monsters beneath the bed, nothing waiting in the darkness...  

But for others, there is the maddening truth; unimaginable horrors lurk in dark places beyond the world we know, horrific things who regard humanity as little more than cattle; insignificant creatures to be used and cast aside at their whim. Ever watchful, they seek to pry open the gates to this realm, to reclaim that which was once theirs. 

Some, so-called enlightened individuals choose travel the dark paths, seeking to gain knowledge never intended for human eyes, seeking arcane tomes and malefic artifacts in hopes of knowing the unknowable, even at the cost of their sanity. Indeed, at the cost of their very lives. 

For you, the choice is clear, the imperative undeniable. Seek out that which should not be. Stand ever vigilant against the horrors lurking in the dark. Walk in the shadows of Cthulhu, and perhaps, if you're lucky, you may survive, may even make a difference, though the cost might be more than you’re prepared to pay… 

  Shadows of Cthulhu makes use of the elegant True20 game system, providing you with everything you need to run a campaign series in the deliciously maddening world  inspired by the works of H.P Lovecraft! 

Inside you will find:

  • New Heroic roles
  • Sample heroes  ready to play out of the box
  • New Backgrounds
  • Mythos Feats, skills and Powers
  • New uses for existing skills
  • Guidelines for Narrating a Shadows of Cthulhu campaign series
  • Rules for Insanity
  • Rules for Mythos Traits
  • Mythos creatures

And much more!

I was so excited to learn that an RPG treatment of the sanity-blasting horror of H. P. Lovecraft had been made available using the True 20 rules that I went online and bought a copy within days of the discovery. Shadows of Cthulhu, designed by Russell [...]

A fantastic game! You would think that we were all Cthulhued-out by now, but SoC is so good and makes True20 really shine. I LOVE Call of Cthulhu, but I would be more likely to play this one these days. Fantastic use of True20 and the rule additions, [...]

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.
