As many here on YSDC would know, for the past months I have been on a mission to take some (largely forgotten) CoC scenario gems from the ancient "Chaosium Digest" and bring them kicking and screaming into the modern age of high-quality, full-colour PDFs. And make the results available for free.
Today, I am extremely pleased to announce the release of the latest such endeavour, a highly-unusual scenario of Mythos conspiracy set in 1990s Arkham. It's called "The Past Is Doomed" and it was written by Geoff Gillan, whose work many people would know from "Horror on the Orient Express" (which was his brainchild). Personally I have always adored HotOE, rating it as easily one of the best campaigns ever written, not just for CoC but for any RPG ... so the chance to adapt a scenario by Geoff is a rare pleasure indeed.
You can grab the PDF version of "The Past Is Doomed" right now from the Cthulhu Reborn blog
If you're unsure about what you'll be getting ... the PDF is 48 pages, and weighs in at 40MB thanks to a huge amount of artwork. It's easily the most complex project I have undertaken so far. A few page layouts below will give you a basic idea of the care that has gone into the layout and production of this PDF ... the posting over on the blog will give you more information and graphical goodness.
Unlike most of the PDFs I have published to-date, this one adds quite a lot of text to the original, mainly to fill in some areas that are largely unexplored. Fortunately I was able to expand upon Geoff's text ... with the author's blessings (or at least tolerance ). I am deeply indebted to Geoff for making himself available for several email Q&As, not to mention a lot of guiding advice ... and a brand new author intro!
Now, go forth and get yourself some good ol' 1990s style conspiracy gaming ....
