Tuesday, August 5, 2014

(After playing the Call of Cthulhu scenario “The Madman” with Bo Lewis, Logan Scott, James Brown, and Nissa Campbell Sunday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.)

Cap’n Gordon Scott swayed as he stood on the tiny balcony in the terrible shaft that he, Angus Silversmith, and Manfred Donald had climbed down in. Frost clung to the heavy clothi...


Old Homemade Scenarios

Posted by Puriri in Arkham Enquirer, 06 August 2014 · 94 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 · 191 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 · 251 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 · 221 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 . Why let the toddlers...


Catching up

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 · 328 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...

Let's get started with a couple shorts

Posted by Carcosa in Carcosa's Blog, 12 February 2014 · 475 views

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 · 297 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...

Truth be told, I have run a couple of other scenarios vetween this one and The Haunting : Wrong Turn from Cthulhu Britannia , and one I wrote myself...


Breeding Difficulties

Posted by lordof1 in Maybe it -should- happen to a vet, 15 November 2013 · 368 views

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...
