So, this came after a extra long break due to various work and recreation conflicts among the group. The game opened with the somewhat belated relaization that the group hadn't utilized thier downtime very effectively (I gave them the chance to do research, but nobody did so) and it was a great example of "time passes quicker than you realized" - just lik...

Well, had the 4th session yesterday, and everyone enjoyed themselves a great deal. In re-reading the 7E rules, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Indefinite Insanity didn't render a character out-of-commission, merely significantly more emotionally fragile and susceptible to Bout of Madness. This meant that Helen the Antiquarian was still playabl...

So, I have to say that this is one of the things I've been most looking forward to - the addition of concrete backstory elements in character creation was great, but the suggestion if not mandate to mess with these in some way when characters go insane is a fantastic. 
So, I had three characters go insane last session (two temporarily and one indefi...

The game picked up again at around 2AM of the same evening that they had gone to speak with Mr. Knott, the owner of the Corbitt House (see above). I had decided that things need a jolt of energy, so given the determined (and in the case of one person, repeated) poking around despite clearly haunted happenings, Things Got Real. 
The Medium and the Ant...

I had a flash of inspiration as I was figuring out how the group knew each other (some did, some didn't), and decided to run The Haunting and Edge of Darkness as one longer, interlinked scenario.

I led with Edge of Darkness, and the quest giver mentioned that he feared that you would need hidden papers that belonged to the former leader of his group....
