Age of Cthulhu IV: Horrors from Yuggoth

Posted by golfsale in Blog golfsale, 21 September 2014 · 24 views
Jazz Age

The investigators' contact from the U.S. State Department is a tall, thin man by the name of Raymond Cort. They decide to call him Basketball Cort.

"I hope he doesn't get involved in any nefarious activities. Then he'd be Criminal Cort."

"Yeah; and if he keeps losing sanity at this rate, he'll end up as A Ward Of Cort."

Just the Basics

Posted by KinginYellow176 in Delta Green- Cell X, 21 September 2014 · 27 views

So, because I want to be able to keep all my notes in one place, this is the basic run down of the campaign. Short, sweet, slightly stupid.

Not that this is ever gonna be published but... SPOILERS AHEAD.

Currently, a cultist of Cthulhu (of non-Innsmouth lineage), Richard Montaigne, is VP of a research company in Seattle. This company looks for novel m...

Tatters of the King: A Summary of Events Thus Far

Jazz Age

In preparation for my next campaign game on September 20, I thought I would prepare a summary of that which has occurred thus far. I figured this would be helpful for both my players and I, since our last campaign game was all the way back in June.

A Summary of Events Thus Far:

Following a break in the investigation of his brother's murder, Boston De...

Kraken 2014 Report

Convention, WWII, Review

As some of you may know, Kraken is a bi-annual gaming vacation at the Schloss Neuhausen in Germany. There is certainly enough Call of Cthulhu related activity and enough Lovecraftian influence to make it worth reporting on at yog-sothoth.com.

Kraken is more leisurely than many cons, a gaming vacation, lasting 5 days. For the flat rate you get all food AN...

PDF Primary

Posted by PoC in PoC's Yog Blog, 28 August 2014 · 524 views

PDF Primary So, after several years progression it's come to pass that I've decided to make the switch to acquiring PDFs as my primary format for the consumption (reading) of roleplaying games.

With advances in PDF reading technology (Kindles, iPads, other computer tablets) combined with what seems a diminishing amount of storage space at Innsmouth House I've come t...

Old Homemade Scenarios

Posted by Puriri in Arkham Enquirer, 06 August 2014 · 211 views

After four years running Call of Cthulhu I wanted to let my old high school scenarios and campaigns loose on the rest of the world.

I should warn that spelling/plot holes/bad research are all possible and likely, however I am quite proud of a moment or two that came together nicely in play. Oh and also sections of some of these may include bits and piece...

Brian McNaughton's Seelura

Posted by maglaurus in Blog maglaurus, 04 August 2014 · 304 views

Below is my interpretation of the lands and kingdoms represented in Brian McNaughton's weird fantasy anthology The Throne of Bones . My understanding is McNaughton himself never created a map for his world because he felt it would limit him creatively and I have yet to find any example of the world of Seelura translated into an rpg format. I'm hoping to g...

Lillian's First Letter to Anne

This letter would have been postmarked from Asmara on August 25th or 26th. Typically such a letter would be addressed to “Miss Anne Avery”, then “care of” a solicitor or other factor wherever Anne said she expected to be (somewhere around the coast of the Mediterranean perhaps?), then the address. All of it in Lillian’s typ...

Arkham Detective Tales 03 - Magic Inc, The Cobble Hill Horror 02

Posted by OlderNick in OlderNick's Blog, 08 June 2014 · 294 views

I had a week between sessions to prepare the second part of the scenario, which turned out to be quite the challenge with my rusty GM:ing abilities. While I did come up with some interesting ideas through panicked googling, it wasn’t until a few hours before we gathered to play that I did so.

Hardly optimal…

Things got underway with Vince Garluc...

CthulaWho = Doctor Who + Call of Cthulhu

Posted by jaysun81 in CthulaWho, 13 April 2014 · 264 views

Every Christmas some of my family, and occasionally a few friends, get together to play a game of the tabletop roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu . Well, several years ago I sat down and put my mind to bringing the Time Lords from Doctor Who into the Call of Cthulhu game. So, I began working on a way to create a Time Lord character. Eventually with a few...

Once again my group is going to be taking a break from Pathfinder to play some Call of Cthulhu . I'm going to be running Tatters of the King for them (watch this space for updates!) but since I have a couple of players who are new to the system and the Mythos, I decided to get our feet wet with Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37 .

Catching up Well I have been slightly remiss in not staying up to date on these recaps but now that Ive figured out how to record what I wanted to using Google Hangouts I didn't have the need to do one for the players and any excuse not to write is always a good thing for me and well to be honest those who read these things as well. :-D
So lets see now the players ha...

A plea to all teenagers wherever they are - Dont EVER give up.

Posted by Tigger_MK4 in Blog Tigger_MK4, 10 March 2014 · 365 views

Its a horrible thing when a child has to bury a parent. It is one of the most traumatic things any human being has to go through, an awful and unfair rite of passage that life requires from all of us eventually. The loss of one so deeply loved - one who can never be replaced - is a painful experience that can barely be imagined by anyone who hasnt gone th...

So I haven’t written in quite some time. I suppose I should make sure I have the time to keep up with a blog but what the hell let’s give it a shot.

One reason I’m starting a blog is because I am seriously considering starting writing some short fiction: particularly science fiction fantasy and/ or horror. I’ve created adventures for rpgs in the past, an...

Alea jacta est

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 11 February 2014 · 323 views

The die is cast. After three years away from GMing, we 're back in business. On Sunday 9/2 I 've finally determined that keeping the Masks campaign book on the shelf gathering dust for years is a sacrilege unforgiving before the eyes of gods and men; so I made my decision to give it a go. I 'm not involved in any other RPG activity these days and the timi...
