Yig's Teeth: A Call of Cthulhu Scenario for Down Darker Trails


In the town of Republic, the wild hooting and hollering of cowboys enjoying themselves in the Ruby Saloon and Dancehall is interrupted by furious hissing and a terrifying rattle. Father Yig has come to The Ruby! Will the investigators survive the night? Or will Yig’s coils and fangs spell doom for this small town?

Inspired by the writing of Louis L'Amour, the HBO series Deadwood, and the Weird Westerns of Robert E Howard, Yig's Teeth pits the Investigators against ancient serpent person magic and a mighty avatar of Yig. With plenty of combat and stealth, and only minimal investigation, the scenario has a very pulpy, monster-hunt feel, but in Yig's Teeth the monster is hunting the Investigators!

The scenario usually runs in a session of four to six hours of play and is designed for three to six investigators.

Yig's Teeth is designed for use with the 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, using the Down Darker Trails setting, though that supplement is not necessary to run the scenario.

Yig's Teeth includes:

  • Six pre-generated Investigator’s for players to choose from;
  • Detailed maps depicting the important locations of Republic and the interior of The Ruby Saloon and Dancehall;
  • Handy charts of random names to generate citizens of Republic and patrons of The Ruby Saloon;
  • Improvised weapons to create the chaotic excitement of a barroom brawl;
  • Gambling and alcohol use rules to simulate the activities found in an Old West saloon;
  • Advice on how to run and present the scenario, including how to convert Yig's Teeth to Pulp Cthulhu.

Craig Lawson has written numerous short stories for Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition, Delta Green: The Role-Playing GameCthulhu Invictus, and many more, though they're mostly locked up safe on his hard drive. This is Craig's second scenario.

Is there a separate file download available for the character sheets? Trying not to completely type them over for a virtual con game or screen shot it

I can add them as a separate file and upload them. Thanks for the question; it wasn’t something I thought of while putting the PDF together.

Hey no problem. Though please take a look at the typos on Finnegan’s character sheet (pregnant, cacophony and photograph are misspelled).

Really? Well that’s embarrassing. I read this over countless times; by the end it was all just gibberish. Thanks. I’ll fix that too.

I have updated the file to include separate PDF's for the Pre-Gen's and for the maps. Hopefully that helps. Also, if you end up running Yig's Teeth for a con, I'd love to hear how it went.

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.
