The Vernissage - a Zgrozy scenario
Quick Preview
Full‑size Preview

The news about the artist’s return came like a bolt out of the blue, causing disbelief and consternation in his close friends and within society itself. Nevertheless, much enthusiasm surrounded the news that a vernissage was to be held. Artomowski intended to present his brand new works, created while in New York.
What exactly are these “Beings of New World”? What was Artomowski trying to state? Whether they like it or not, the investigators will have to look for answers to these questions.


The Vernissage is an independent scenario for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition. By default it takes place in 1920s and is centered around a Polish artist but it can easily be set anywhere around the world and adapted to other eras. It works well with our pre-made Investigator Archetypes. Inside you’ll find:

  • A classic investigation to be conducted during an exhibition of Zbigniew Artomowski's unsettling sculptures
  • Letters containing story hooks that you can give to your players before the game
  • Numerous pieces of evidence, events and Non-Player Characters to help you run this story
  • Illustrated descriptions of Beings who embody aspects of the mysterious Lord on Amber Throne

Michał Gralak, author of The Vernissage, is an experienced horror and weird fiction creator active both as an author and a graphic designer. The Vernissage is his English debut.

The Vernissage is the fourth English release in the Zgrozy line that startet in Polish to a great success. To find out more see our other releases or visit our Facebook page (/ZgrozyEN). “Zgrozy” is a slightly archaic Polish word for “Horrors” or “Terrors.” Following advice from English-speaking Cthulhu fans, we decided to keep the original title for foreign releases since it sounds suitably unspeakable and blasphemous to non-Polish ears.

Original electronic
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.
