A Self Judgement Ramble.

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 25 May 2018 · 13 views

Damn it!
It's been bugging me for awhile now the question of "Am I alright as a Game Master?" it's a question I guess all G.M's ask themselves from time to time but after my last online group just weirdly faded away after a few poorly attended sessions without and real comment from anyone the question of my Gaming style has risen from the depths.

yock's Lovecraftathon: Celephais

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 12 May 2018 · 41 views

It's been too long since one of these reviews. Apologies folks! Hoping to get back into the swing of things with a more regular schedule. And first up is this one, again from the Eldritch Tales collection. 
I really like Lovecraft's Dreamlands stories, though I know they're not to everyone's tastes. For me they are a wonderful mix of the exotic east...

Our Ladies of Sorrow Musings (spoilers)

Posted by Lisa in Blog Lisa, 11 May 2018 · 104 views

I've bought a box of 120 crayons and have done three drawings, including the ones that are probably the most important. I'm probably overdoing this.

Off to Germany

I am about to head on a business trip to Germany; alas, unconnected with the scenario I'm writing and not taking me to its intended location T_T 
I will keep an eye out for Lovecraftian and related goodies while I'm there, and may try to pick up some gaming swag. I've already made the pleasant discovery that Hiveworld is just round the corner from o...

Forget Me Not (80's edition) - First Session

Posted by DeUniversumMysteriis in DeUniversumMysteriis' Blog, 04 March 2018 · 226 views

Forget Me Not (80's edition) - First Session Introduction :
I've run Forget Me Not (Great adventure from The Things We Leave Behind published by Stygian Fox) for three of my friends during two long game sessions. I took the liberty to set the story in 1987 because I wanted to give that "retro" flair to the game for my players. Also, we've used pre-generated characters because I thought it was mor...

TERROR - adapted as a start to a GRU SV8 campaign

Posted by Madam30th in Blog Madam30th, 13 August 2017 · 1,418 views

[spoiler alert - do not read if you intend to be a player in TERROR] I always liked the TERROR scenario: the idea that players are being tested for their loyalty prior to being erased from the living and turned into special agents investigating the mythos that reaches into the very heart of the Soviet state has such pulpy overtones. but the scenario...

The Madness is Illusory

Posted by MiskatonicProf in The Zen of the Strange, 25 July 2017 · 903 views

"But it would be dangerous to search too earnestly for the allegorical in Titus Groan . It remains essentially a work of the closed imagination, in which a world parallel to our own is presented in almost paranoiac denseness of detail. But the madness is illusory, and control never falters. It is, if you like, a rich wine of fancy chilled by the intell...

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...

"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...

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.
