Cthulhu Dreadfuls Presents #1 - Kiss of Blood


Her First Kiss Brought Her to Life, Her Second Was to Die For

When a young woman goes missing in the remote village of Karloczig, the PCs are called upon to help bring her home safe. Arriving by train, the Investigators delve into the girl’s secretive past before uncovering the truth behind her mysterious disappearance.

The plot thickens when they discover a conspiracy stretching back over a hundred years, and in order to bring it screaming into the light of day they must venture to the one place the people of Karloczig will never go… The foreboding Castle Hammerstein.

Kiss of Blood is an adventure scenario for the Call of Cthulhu RPG set in the Wystdovja Vale - a fictitious pseudo-European river valley located along the northeastern reaches of the Adriatic Sea, and set in the Gaslight Era of the 1890s. Something like H.P. Lovecraft’s Arkham, or Ramsey Campbell’s Goatswood, the Wystdovja Vale is an attempt to create a sandbox location where Investigators can pit themselves against the horrors of the Mythos, as well as more classic monsters of Gothic horror, all while trekking about in horse-drawn carriages, Inverness cloaks, top hats, and mutton-chops.

At its core Wystdovja’s inspiration comes from a love of old Hammer horror movies, Dracula, Frankenstein, Lovecraft’s Mythos, and ideas I have been collecting for that far off day when I finally get to run an epic 1890s Cthulhu campaign; but rather than placing the campaign in Victorian England, I have opted for the dark mountains, ruined castles, superstitious villages, and mystic Romani camps of Gothic fiction. In any case, I want to welcome you to Wystdovja. I hope you find some value in the setting and can have some truly terrifying adventures here.

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.
