Yes it is me, Caligula, from the Wizards boards writing all those "Total Recap!" Chronicles. You might have picked up Red Hand of Doom - Total Recap or City of the Spiderqueen - Total Recap! But now we are setting up the biggest campaign of them all. Horror on the Orient Express - Total Recap!
We played the first session tonight with 4 investigators and they did well, advancing as experienced players do. There were a couple of decisions and events that was a bit surprising but I will come back to that shortly.
The investigators will be properly introduced of course, this will be done by the players. To summarise they are a nice blend of backgrounds, nationalities and competences but share the common goal of discovering the dark behind it all...
We started the campaign by playing the 4 introduction adventures in the 6th edition rules. They are quite entertaining and also classics having followed along for many editions now. The investigators managed them well, no deaths but some minor insanity issues. Corbitt's house was close to a TPK but they managed to turn it around in the last gasp.
We will play Horror on the Orient Express as written with the options of skill experience checks after each scenario and PC succession at each station.
We look forward to share our experiences with all of you and please add comments, questions and what not. It will all be read and answered. We will also add pics, films and pods as we move along. Some of the investigators will actually be interviewed as they travel through Europe.
Lock the doors. Be careful. They are watching us. Right now.
