The Shadow over Providence: Enhanced Edition


The Milton Hotel cordially invites you to view the fantastical exhibition “The Kingdom of Fire—Egypt’s 18th Dynasty.” Marvel at the treasures of Tutankhamun and Hatshepsut, and the mysterious canopic jar of Ibnhotep the Mad! Tickets are limited and selling fast—don’t miss out on what promises to be the most talked about exhibition of the year!

With an invitation like that, how could your investigators possibly refuse?

What's Inside?

The Shadow Over Providence: Enhanced Edition is a 1920s scenario for Call of Cthulhu. Be they historians and scholars, or even those who ply the blackmarket trade in illicit antiquities, this is a rare opportunity for Call of Cthulhu investigators to learn the secrets of the distant past outside of a museum. And what possible danger could there be in going to see the mortal remains of someone called “Ibnhotep the Mad”?

A Familiar Locale

Does this pack have a map that the Roll20 does not? I notice a bedroom map that isn't in the Roll20 module I just purchased for the game. I had thought they'd been the same.

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.
