Beyond The Bridgewater Triangle : The First Game

Posted by DeUniversumMysteriis in DeUniversumMysteriis' Blog, 27 May 2017 · 63 views
CoC 7e, New to Cthulhu

Beyond The Bridgewater Triangle : The First Game 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 · 64 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...

yock's Lovecraftathon: Ex Oblivione

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 16 May 2017 · 104 views

This is a really short one, so I'm going to push straight on and do it too. 
I'm curious about who the narrator is, from the word go. They don't seem to be identified positively, but it's quite a leap into the short story, without fuller introduction, and I rather like this. But if I had to guess I'd assume it was an older person, near the end of the...

Apparently, my paperbacks are available in libraries.

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 12 April 2017 · 213 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 · 341 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 · 279 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 · 514 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...

2016 has been a bad year overall but a very good one for gaming and enjoying hobby stuff. Thanks for everyone who took part and participated.
Recently took part in The RPG Brigade's third annual convention for Childsplay charity.
Managed to raise close to 2000 US dollars this year on donations and t shirt sales.  We played Mutant Future: The Bik...

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

Posted by yronimoswhateley in The Apocalyptic Log of Yronimos W., 22 November 2016 · 512 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...

Ad-Hoc Scenario: The Voyage of The Caledonian

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...

Luck

Did we use Luck wrong in previous editions? did anyone use it to save a character or was it just a skill you used to see if you had remembered to bring a flashlight?

Session #5 - Ross' Corner, IL

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...

Well-dressed man

Posted by K_Peterson in What I did on my summer vacation..., 23 July 2016 · 813 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...

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...
