Those of you receiving your Cthulhu Confidential books will notice an unsettling difference between the print version and the PDF: an empty, white void at the top of page eight.
The missing text is a bit of GM advice that’s repeated in all our other books, and it’s in the PDF version of Cthulhu Confidential. Its absence is my fault: when I was checking the physical proof I thought that blank space was part of the design, and so I approved it. The error was spotted only after the files had been printed, and were in the process of being drop-shipped from the printers. We strive for a high level of quality in every game we make, and we’re very sorry for this error.
In a comment thread, a Pelgranista referred to a “second print run”, which might have given the impression that we’re reprinting the book in response to the error. To clarify, that print run — if it happens — is years away. Given the cost of printing and shipping, a do-over just isn’t an option.
How we’ll make it up to you
When we make a mistake, we like to make it up to our customers somehow. Many of you have asked us to put the game’s Problems and Edges into a printable PDF card deck—so that’s what we’re going to do, and we’ll upload it to your Bookshelf for free. We’ll send out an email notification once we’ve uploaded it.
I’ve gone ahead and closed the comments on this and the Cthulhu Confidential product page, but we’re always happy to answer any questions about this, or any customer service queries, if you drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your patience. We hope you enjoy Cthulhu Confidential!
