Fate of Cthulhu Timeline • The Rise of Yig


In this 29-page timeline for Fate of Cthulhu, agents from the future and people from the present day join forces to cancel an impending reptilian apocalypse! 

In 2020 a surprise eclipse, visible only in northern Mexico and in the southern United States, shadowed everything under it. It was a strange astronomical phenomenon. During the eclipse and ensuing darkness, Yig—the Father of Serpents—awoke. 

Yig started walking and destroying civilization in his wake. His full power led to a psychic disturbance around the world: terrifying dreams of snakes and other reptiles, sudden convulsions when near those animals, and an increase in betrayals among friends all the way up to entire corporations. Secret organizations such as the Center for Defense against Elder Threats from the UN, the Chimalli Union and the Dark Light Net had contingency plans for Great Old Ones, but never accounted for Yig because he was considered a lesser threat than other Old Ones. 

They were wrong.

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.
