Under a Winter's Snow

The effects of the Great War and the 1918 Pandemic are still felt in the small town of Eisner, North Dakota, both metaphorically and literally.

A short, one-night Classic Era scenario for use with 7th edition Call of Cthulhu. This scenario may easily be transported to other locales known for cold and snowy winters, other time periods, or both, with minimal effort on the part of the Keeper.

Death & Disease in North Dakota

Sections 1-3: Introduction covers the backstory of the scenario and gives four methods of bringing investigators to the remote, snow-shrouded town of Einer, ND. It also details the core themes of the scenario, and provides suggestions on how to incporate them into the game.

Sections 4-6: Arriving in Town has the investigators arrive and begin investigating the mysterious illness that has afflicted the town's residents. These sections detail several locations and many of the residents of Eisner.

Sections 7-9: The Climax and Aftermath closes out the scenario, depending on the Investigators actions in the preceding sections.

The scenario is supported by 4 handouts, 1 map, and introduces 1 NPCs, 1 new Mythos creature, and 1 spell variant.

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.
