Mythos Encounters Horror Skirmish


Cooperative Miniature Encounters in the Cthulhu Mythos

Mythos Encounters is a miniature skirmish game of the Cthulhu Mythos. This is a cooperative game, in which Investigotors work together to face the horrors of ruthless cultists, mysterious alien creatures and the elder gods themselves.

Your investigators can face enemies head-on, trusting in your strength and weaponry, or take a more subtle approach using stealth and gathering clues to gain an advantage.

Enemy creatures in Mythos Encounters change from encounter to encounter, and their behavior is determined by a variety of AI tactics.

As your investigators progress through each encounter, they will gain new abilities, equipment and allies that will allow them to face even greater threats. They may also gain permanent physical injuries or debilitating mental disorders.

Mythos Encounters is played as a series of linked encounters using your own terrain and miniature figures. This game has no official terrain or miniatures.

Just purchased and downloaded. All headings and index are scrambled, random text - the same with the full downloadable preview, but the quick preview is ok.
Badically, this file needs a tweek to make it usable / fully readable.

I've looked at the preview and full file in a number of different PDF viewers, and on different computer systems (PC and Mac, iPhone, iPad), but I'm not seeing this issue. I'll regenerate the file and re-upload anyway and keep investigating.

Could you tell us what computer/PDF viewer you're using?

Using a Samsung Galaxy tablet (Android)with fully up to date Adobe Acrobat. Like I said, the quick preview is fine, but the downloadable preview and the actual full file have corrupted text. All the normal text is ok, only the bold text wherever it appears, so contents page, paragraph headings, index pages etc. Most odd.

Just tried a different PDF viewer and all text now readable.

OK, good.
I suspect the problem was that those headers use Raleway font, which is not standard on most computers and had to be embedded in the pdf. I added a version of the file that uses an Arial font instead, which should work even for viewers that can't deal with embedded fonts.

Just going to ask the same thing. This looks perfect for my group, but would like at least some pictures of the inner pages to get more of an idea of what I am buying.

Sorry about that. This product wasn't intended to be listed yet and isn't a complete listing. For some reason Wargame Vault put it up for sale early.

The real version, with cover art and previews, etc. will be available in a week or two.

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.
