Festival at Red Hook

Watermarked PDF

This is a short roleplaying game of ironic Lovecraftian adventure with light elements of strategy. It takes place in Red Hook, a tourist district in almost New York (almost, since the game takes place in an alternate history setting). You are about to become cult leaders who will need to develop and then execute a plan for a local festival.

Some Red Hook citizens find themselves abuzz with energy and the desire to change their district for the better. They wish to attract many more visitors, hoping to eventually outdo their old nemesis — the city of Arkham, one of the occult capitals of the world. It was during an informal evening gathering under the roof of “Bradan Feasa” when some of the local cult leaders — your characters, the protagonists — energized the room with an idea: to concoct a wholesome festival celebrating the birthday of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred — a wholly imaginary character, whose name is known to everyone who considers themselves to be a scholar (or as they now say “a fan”) of the occult.

You can take part in preparations for the festival as one of the leaders of Red Hook's cults. Your choice of patrons is as follows: Hecate, Dagon and Hydra, Nyarlathotep, Cthulhu, or all of the above, including a range of other, smaller deities (as per the worship by Red Hook's Omnicult). You will prepare and bring to life projects of great importance (to the festival), handle problems that arise from the rowdy attending crowd or festival participants, pair dramatic and humorous roleplaying scenes together, think about tactics and strategy and see how well you've done when you make it to the finale!

Your characters can both fail dramatically and spectacularly succeed, depending on your choices and your luck. But such is a life of a festival organizer. And hey, there's always next year, right?

We present to you a lightweight version of “Kadath” ruleset. This game is intended to be played over 2 to 3 sessions with a group of 3 to 6 friends, one of which will take up the mantle of a Stage Director (SD). To play you will need the rules, character sheets, a handful of standard six-sided dice (a dozen will suffice), a pencil, and an eraser.

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.
