There were two weekly newspapers in Williamstown at the time - The Williamstown Advertiser and the Williamstown Chronicle that come out on Saturdays and are delivered to houses by newsboys or sold on corners.

What does it all mean? rambling thoughts and disconnected musings.

Posted by Butters in Butters' Blog, 27 May 2015 · 32 views

What does it all mean? rambling thoughts and disconnected musings. Well some time has passed since my last entry and a lot has happened, I have been thinking about what to write for a long time now so here it goes.
The Rambles campaign unfortunately ended on a whimper and a lot of frustration on my part, though as the Keeper and that it was a home brew understandably a lot of the blame for it ending badly lays at my feet...

Fun-sizing the Great Old Ones: Cthulhu

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 27 May 2015 · 39 views

In a previous post (also discussed in my other blog , because I'm disorganised, I suppose?) I talked about what makes a Great Old One difficult or easy to use in a scenario. I'm continuing today with the Big Green himself.

Cthulhu presents a few problems. I’ll talk about his home later. In terms of Cthulhu himself, his physical form is one of the iss...

Posted by MonkeyPrime in Tell me about your Occult related Room?, 26 May 2015 · 31 views
CoC 7e, WWII

So haven't updated this in ages but have played 4 stories since we last spoke! We made the move permanently to World War Cthulhu after the first two adventures. We use 7th edition stuff like pushing, spending Luck, advantage and disadvantage dice and combat. Some of them are using updated versions of their characters from their 1920s campaign.

yock's Lovecraftathon: Cool Air

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 26 May 2015 · 40 views

Ooh this is the sort of story that could leave lingering spooks, channelling as it does an everyday occurrence that people encounter. Very like a Steven Moffat Doctor Who story telling you to be scared of clocks, or shadows, or statues. Here it's a blast or draft of cold air.

Nice direct writing style, which I always appreciate, but is only found rarely...

MoN session 10: An interlude (24/4/2015)

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 14 May 2015 · 119 views

As the title implies, nothing noteworthy took place during this session, save the group's decision to follow the expedition's footsteps and leave America for London. Ernest used his influence in the U.K. embassy and the four brave investigators purchased their first class tickets in the luxurious RMS Mauretania embarking for England in a few days.

Horror on the Orient Express Keepers Campaign Notes: Soundtrack (Spoilers)

Posted by Taavi in Blog Taavi, 09 February 2015 · 188 views
Jazz Age, Music

Having recently started the Keeping the new Horror on the Orient Express, I'm experimenting with different music for the Soundtrack.

As well as the HotOE Symphony, I've been trying out pieces that are contemporary and/or good at capturing a mood or theme of a place. So in London I mostly played period Jazz, but when the heat was on, I used the Clash's "L...

Chapter III: Meeting Master Roby

Posted by Mr. Bill in Mr. Bill Presents: Tatters of the King, 04 November 2014 · 357 views

After a helpful tip at the police station, the group was off to the Ames Funeral Home, the funeral parlor that had handled the bodies after the Roby murders. Inside an old but well-kept white house, they were greeted by Mr. Ames himself. The mortician remembered the affair well: making the bodies suitable for viewing, he said, had been quite a task. The e...

Below is a link for a ROUGH draft of our first episode, which I'm releasing to gauge interest in an ongoing series, as well as seek feedback for what people like/dislike. Thanks!

Just the Basics

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.

Posted by malcojones in Blog malcojones, 28 August 2014 · 573 views
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

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.
