Best Trail of Cthulhu scenarios for the aspiring writer?
« on: November 17, 2014, 01:15:30 PM »
Let's say I'm planning to write some Trail of Cthulhu adventures, hopefully good enough for publication, either by Pelgrane or by somebody else. What would be the best ToC adventures for me to read, to learn the proper style, format, and organization for them?

I'd probably suggest Out of Time as a good place to start, as well as the new Dulce et Decorum Est.

Take a glance at Graham Walmsley's Purist adventures as well as Stunning Eldritch Tales for looking at more Pulp-style scenarios.

Thanks for the recommendations. It looks as though there's no PDF for Dulce et Decorum Est yet, unfortunately.

There certainly is when I perused the Pelgrane shop page this morning. Look again.

Awesome, great resource, Ross! Thanks.

PirateLawyer, I'll have another look, and add it to my Christmas list.
