The Temple Drums


From the dense jungles of Mexico to a lonely estate in the deep woods of Maine,a curse has awoken. It no longer slumbers through eons of time hiding from the eyes of men. Tonight, it lays claim to this house and all those who dwell within.  Can you survive the rhythm of the Temple Drums and bring back the artifacts that you have been hired to acquire or will your souls be stripped and tormented forever?

This module takes place in the North Eastern United States during the fall of 1936. However, it could be adapted to fit any time period after the mid 1920's. 

"The Temple Drums" is a one shot adventure in the world of Call of Cthulhu designed for 7th edition. It is best suited to a group of 3-6 players (including the keeper) but can easily be modified for upto 8 players. 

This module offers several interesting features including two different openings for your investigators based on thier overall backgounds (i.e. Professional or Criminal). Also, should an investigator meet an early demise they will not need to select a new character to play. They will continue aiding the party by playing a ghost who can interact with the group throughout the latter stages of the story.

This is a FANTASTIC module. The multiple ways the scenario allows for investigators become involved (good guys or bad guys) allows for newer GM's to easily segue this into their campaign. The Boxed texts provide a great feel without being overly &quo [...]

I found the structure of the adventure, for the game master. to be well done. The pacing seems to suit either a multi- night adventure for a group that takes it's time or a single, long day/ night event. Planning and pacing are top notch, and the story [...]

What an amazing story! It's a chilling tale filled with twists that keep players on the edge of their seats. I love the different elements the author has incorporated in the module to get players involved. I especially thought the part that allows inve [...]

My group of investigators played The Temple Drums last night and it was a truly chilling experience. While following in the footsteps of other Cthulhuian tales the madness took a different, unique shape in this story that none of the players were expec [...]

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.
