Some of us have ghastly scars on the outside that belie a robust repair beneath. Jeremiah's condition should have been eno...

Posted by OlderNick in OlderNick's Blog, 08 June 2014 · 214 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 · 181 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...

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

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...

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...

Breeding Difficulties

Heidi, the three-year old bulldog, waddles across the floor of the prep room. She tries to sit, but her hugely distended abdomen makes that uncomfortable for her, so instead she stands, and pants. Her thick eyelids droop with weariness. Sam and I lift her onto the prep table with some difficulty. Heidi gurgles and splutters as we set her down, then starts...

So, here I am running through the Painted World of Ariamis, trying to escape without dying *again*, or distubing those annoying spear chucking phalanax, when I'm greeted by a most pleasent message:

"Dark Spirit Xanthous King Jeremiah has invaded!"

So I do away with that pest by tricking him into rolling off a cliff, unfortunately meaning that I didn't...
