Cthulhu's 30 terrifying oneshots for horror rpg


Those oneshots are structured in four parts. Without imposing a linear plot, this approach opens perspectives while imposing events to face. The revelation answers the questions of the first two thirds of the adventure and requires the reaction of the characters. It is designed for oneshot of two or three hours, with a simple yet disconcerting plot and little preparation.

These oneshots have been played many times with significant differences in the ways they unfold. I have chosen to keep only the very core of the plot, so that each Game Master will add subplots, flavour, atmosphere, allies, opponents, traitors and locations. One of the pleasure of game-mastering. 

After a shocking and odd trigger/hook, the characters will face disturbing events, try to make sense of them and then a full (or partial) understanding of what's behind the scene will push them to decide how to fight, what to sacrifice or where to escape…

Those oneshots were tested mainly with Cthulhu Dark and Monster of the Week. I also played World of Cthulhu, a homebrew hack of World of Dungeons.

I hope you will enjoy those journeys in nightmarish lands. Any comment and review will be greatly appreciated.

I wish you good games !

Cliff Hanger

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.
