yock's Lovecraftathon: The Crawling Chaos

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 29 June 2017 · 9 views

(with Winifred Virginia Jackson - based on her dream, text written by Lovecraft) 
Pushing straight on, this is a relatively short story, but at the start I'm finding it a really hard read. The text doesn't flow for me, and I need to work hard to read each sentence. To be fair it is describing an opium dream, but I feel that should be more dreamlike,...

Mythic CoC 02 - It's moving!

Posted by JohnDi in Random Call of Cthulhu, 28 June 2017 · 36 views

http://www.nchistori...ldkyhometom.jpg At the boarding house, the door was opened by a stolid looking Portuguese woman, a miss Ferreira. While seemingly not thrilled to have a visitor, I noticed her looking more than once at the cat on my shoulder with a soft expression, obviously another feline lover. After our exchange she went to fetch...

Don't be a Philistine: Just Say "No" to Dagon

Posted by MiskatonicProf in The Zen of the Strange, 28 June 2017 · 10 views

"Terrestrial devils are those lares, genii, fauns, satyrs, wood-nymphs, foliots, fairies, Robin Goodfellows, trolli , etc., which as they are most conversant with men, so they do them most harm. Some think it was they alone that keep that the heathen people in awe of old, and had so many idols and temples erected to them. Of this range Dagon amongst the...

Off table chat

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 26 June 2017 · 17 views

My weekly online game was cancelled again due to real life issues but a couple of us still got together for a chat and it was pretty interesting seeing the differences in play style and how to run a game.
What came out if the fairly long chat was I was basically the only one who still preferred Sixth edition whilst the others much preferred the newer Seve...

New York, December 11, 1923 New York City proved to be the tonic to the ails of the weary. Dr. Nathaniel Millheim had been six months removed from his last mind altering Mythos episode and was at the top of his game as a pulp writer. Steven O'Hara was now a professor of physics at Columbia University, getting research offers, and giving his dilettant...

CoC 7e, New to Cthulhu

Beyond The Bridgewater Triangle : First Session We are at the end of the morning when Ursula Bishop arrives at the south-west entrance of Bridgewater Park and while she's quite proud of herself for making all the way from Arkham to this part in the south of Massachusetts, the abnormal heat surrounding her makes her worried. But she won't wimp out. She really wants to get that raise so she will do that...

Shadows of Yog Sothoth

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 22 May 2017 · 202 views

I have started running shadows of Yog Sothoth. In the first episode I wanted the characters to get to feel at home in the society... So after the ritual of joining to become neophytes they spent a great evening drinking illegal booze. 
I described John Scott, and went into detail about how he was shaking their hand while meeting them. Each characte...

Apparently, my paperbacks are available in libraries.

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 12 April 2017 · 292 views

I am also disbelieving and not a little astonished.
Any way, at some point I ought to do some more writing, or try harder to get an actual job, or indeed, find a new hobby!
At some point I shall ask a friend of mine to verify the truth or otherwise of this development. My local library and I parted company due to mutual disinterest, some years ago.

Writing progress for March

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 01 April 2017 · 456 views

So thanks to a combination of a sanity-restoring cruise (well, holiday), the onset of spring sunshine, the tireless efforts of supportive friends, and potent mind-affecting substances, I've found myself once more reasonably on form and able to resume something approaching my usual productivity. Not being asleep most of the time helps a lot, I find. ...

Azathoth: Cold and Gold

Posted by echofalls in Blog echofalls, 09 March 2017 · 355 views

"it is said, that, beneath all the chaos, there is an underlying pattern of perfect order."  Once, there was no change, no entropy. Only the pattern and everything that belonged, designed and created to suit its purpose.
Today, the pattern remains, but only in tatters, warped in new ways. From the echoes of the pattern came change and thought; driv...

Mr Tom Driberg, society reporter and scandal hound, currently working for the Daily Clarion , has revealed himself as the original recipient of the puzzling pseudo-Egyptian scroll which he passed to Mr Edmundson, knowing Edmundson's interest in antique manuscripts. Owen Davies also recognises Mr Driberg as a frequenter of a number of nightspots for young...

A new group, a new campaign

Posted by coomber in coomber's Blog, 20 January 2017 · 606 views

Having not had a chance to play CoC for years, I finally got around to getting another group and getting started. 
The characters: Grant , a handsome jock with little going on between the ears whose sporting prowess managed to get him a scholarship and an education. 
Neilson , a big, fat, ugly doctor. 
Ullerton , a clumsy, gangly, but brill...

M. R. Jame's Rules for an effective ghost story

Post the second... 
British ghost story writer M. R. James was one of the authors singled out for mention in Lovecraft's essay 'Supernatural Horror in Literature' as being one of the modern masters of horror literature. James's own opinion of Lovecraft's writing may be found in his essay 'Ghost's Treat Them Gently!', where he refers to the type of fi...

Film List 1 - Thoughts on describing a film as "Lovecraftian"....

Posted by yronimoswhateley in The Apocalyptic Log of Yronimos W., 22 November 2016 · 596 views

Background : It seemed like an easy project at first: I would try putting together a list of "Lovecraftian" films for the YSDC Wiki. What could possibly go wrong? After all, on one hand, there seemed to be only so many films out there that were definitely based on Lovecraft stories, and it seemed that most of us who were familiar with Lovecraft and w...

Jazz Age

This past week, I ran a completely ad-hoc scenario as the result of a poor decision at two in the morning. In all, we had playing:
James Wilkinson, Alabamian prizefighter with an EDU of 19 (!)
Cecile Bardot, French mystic and accountant for Wilkinson
Xavier Billingsford, British drug smuggler and "legitimate businessman"
Walter Williams, Billingsford's ch...

Pulp, CoC 7e

So, this came after a extra long break due to various work and recreation conflicts among the group. The game opened with the somewhat belated relaization that the group hadn't utilized thier downtime very effectively (I gave them the chance to do research, but nobody did so) and it was a great example of "time passes quicker than you realized" - just lik...
