yock's Lovecraftathon: From Beyond

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 28 July 2015 · 74 views

First observation: what an incredibly short story, quite a contrast to others I've read of late. 
And again a reference to the dangers of studying science. 
Though it takes arguably too long to get to the point of what has happened, with the machine being turned on. There is something to be said for building up a reader's suspense, and keeping t...

First part

Posted by fluffy in Unseen Masters - Keeper's thread. (Players keep out, please), 28 July 2015 · 106 views

Well hello me hearties, glad you could join me. I originally ran the third part of this scenario in 2003, I found my original notes and handouts (a minor miracle as mostly I lose stuff) On re reading it seemed to me that I had come to appreciate the psychological aspects of the work much better after recent brushes with mental health issues....

Masks of Nyarlathotep Cuisine Part 1 - New York In Masks of Nyarlathotep we get to travel to many different exotic locations and it all begins in New York so what better place for us to start.
American food generally has a strong presence is many western countries, so for a lot of people it wouldn't be particularly difficult to find American food and drinks. So with that in mind I tried to pick ones th...

No Games Day for me

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 19 July 2015 · 97 views

Very reluctantly, I'm having to skip YSDC Games Day yet again. I was really hoping to take part this year, and finally meet a few of the fine folks I've run across here. I mentally put aside the time when it was first announced and planned very much to go. It sounds brilliant. 
Unfortunately, that plan was predicated on my having secured a new job...

Well, I've let it fly! It is free now......

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 27 June 2015 · 152 views

Well, I've let it fly! It is free now...... I was going to struggle on a bit longer with it, but it finished at 53,944
So I have let it go!
There should be no heinous errors in this one, as I have worked to a tighter standard than A King In Graeffenland, (some corrections for which, I'll upload in July).
But I've been entirely on my own with this one!
My proof reader doesn't do Horror, and I've gon...

NYC Cthulhu #12: They Sleep By Twilight

Jazz Age

November 22, 1923
"Mother said there'd be days like this," Jessica Carson thought to herself as she slowly leafed through her husband's files."No, as a matter of fact, she had no freaking clue."

Surely, not even a guilt filled Irish mother could imagine that in one quick year, her unmarried daughter would go from small town school teacher (with a checke...

Trail of Nyarlathotep - Masks of New York: Flashback - The Carlyle Expedition Farewell Party Keeper's Notes Okay. I just looked and it has been a while since I updated this blog. Where has the time gone?

Anyway. As I have stated previously, as much as I like the overall concept of Masks, there are a few things that I decided to change. You have probably read the police investigation parts that I wrote back in 2013 (!). This was to give some substance to the on...

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

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...

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

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 14 May 2015 · 203 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.
