yock's Lovecraftathon: The Beast in the Cave

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 28 August 2016 · 77 views

Knowing nothing about this story I wondered if it's early, because it seems very over written and heavy in its use of convoluted language. And checking I see that it's extremely early Lovecraft, written in 1904 when he was 14. Crumbs. 
Also it's rather a trivial point, but the description at the start of being stuck in a cave reminded me an awful lot...

Pulp Cthulhu a setting to far?

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 27 August 2016 · 57 views

Do the Pulp rules where you play a more HEROIC style Investigator take away something from the setting that makes Call of Cthulhu special?
For me one of the things that makes Call of Cthulhu such a different and interesting game is the fact that it derives a lot of its uniqueness and feel from the normality of the characters you play they are not superher...

Session #4 - R.I.P. Walter Corbitt, Esq.

Posted by DAR in Blog DAR, 21 August 2016 · 48 views
CoC 7e, Pulp

Well, had the 4th session yesterday, and everyone enjoyed themselves a great deal. In re-reading the 7E rules, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Indefinite Insanity didn't render a character out-of-commission, merely significantly more emotionally fragile and susceptible to Bout of Madness. This meant that Helen the Antiquarian was still playabl...

Well-dressed man

Posted by K_Peterson in What I did on my summer vacation..., 23 July 2016 · 111 views

Well-dressed man This sharp-dressed fellow may be one of my favorite investigators to paint so far. The shader really helped his vest and exposed skin to "pop" (visually), creating a nice contrast to the tuxedo. He's got a casual, comfortable pose. 
Although it's probably not that visible from the (poor) photo, this minis has a lot of facial detail. Painting up the m...

Passing realisations on summoning

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 15 July 2016 · 107 views

So I was reading up on monster summoning spells... for no reason (ahem)... and just noticed this in the sidebar: If a success, one being appears per spell, 2d10 game minutes after the chant concludes . 2d10 game minutes. Not "immediately". I'm pretty sure it's been immediate in most of the games I've heard feature summoning spells, because sum...

On the Appointed Day, Our Heroes Depart for Their Big Adventure


So, first episode of the campaign actually breaks out. To get started, since I found myself starting in something of a hurry, I found a free scenario on line, written for Harn world. This had some potential--it was rather simple, being a murder mystery. It had some treasure that could be found (key in a fantasy game) and it had some hooks to further ad...

Student investigators

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 27 June 2016 · 126 views

The Time to Harvest campaign dovetailed nicely with my desire to use the M.U. sourcebook rules for generating student investigators. 
A Time to Harvest is centered on the Miskatonic University.  
Making a student with the MU rules is basically the same as normal, but with lowered skill points. 
Players select classes and extra curricular a...

Dreamhounds of Paris: The doctor will see you now (2)

Posted by GBSteve in Blog GBSteve, 17 May 2016 · 226 views

In Session 2, this happened.  
Dali wakes up in an arm chair, naked and cold from having spent the night there. He stalks back upstairs and still naked starts to paint on the great canvas in the attic that he had prepared some days earlier. In the cold morning light inspiration comes. The painting is off a forest but is somehow also Gala, picked ou...

Ring a Ring o' Roses

Posted by Emrys in Nightmares in Norfolk, 07 May 2016 · 201 views

Mollie has a decision to make when they get back to the cars - does she slap Caleb or shoot him? I do like a little foreshadowing. Don't you? Mollie: I have a decision to make. Do I slap or shoot Caleb?
Caleb: For any particular reason?
M: Yes. Six of them.
C: That you walked into on your own, with no help from anyone else.
M: No backup either....

Minced meat

Poor Paul, he really has had some bad luck (!) in this campaign. Still his characters have been immersive and enjoyable. Maybe he is going for a record. I feel that Gregor may return.
Sometimes, I am sure that you have noticed, we give pause to the appropriate reactions that PCs 'should' be feeling.
This probably happens in your games experiences as wel...

Cross-Group Game Session for HotOE

Posted by Galbraith in Mutterings from Providence, 22 April 2016 · 186 views

I'm currently running two groups on HotOE , and they've just about finished the Lausanne chapter. Spoilers to follow. 
The two groups both, for very different reasons, had only one party member partake of the dream drug. One, because he straight-up tasted the green liquid before they had a chance to finish reading the Journal, and the other group out...

The Queen of Night (Arkham Gazette #3)

Posted by Khelbiros in Keeper Reflections, 05 April 2016 · 249 views

I ran (Kept?) 'The Queen of Night' scenario in early January 2016 as a one shot. This was recently published in Arkham Gazette #3. I think we completed it in over six hours. The scenario can be neatly divided into two halves – a rather dry research segment, and a more exciting second half where the players in my game were desperately try to find the lost...
