yock's Lovecraftathon: The Alchemist

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 27 June 2016 · 26 views

I'm curious that this was written by Lovecraft at a young age, only 17 or 18. I'm intrigued to see what the writing style is like, and how well it works as a story. As I read I made brief notes, and will reproduce those here. 
Promising start, though perhaps a bit heavy handed on the descriptive imagery. As I read the opening paragraphs I feel a bit...

Student investigators

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 27 June 2016 · 32 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...

Same Club, Different Heroes, such as they are, in a Different World


So, unlike the Invictus game which was planned for a long, very long, time before it was dropped on an unsuspecting club, my latest campaign came about rather more spontaneously than I might wish. 
Our group has its roots in the gaming club of the local university, Iowa State. The student gaming club has gone on for years, more or less non-stop since...

Reading from my first book.

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 19 June 2016 · 57 views

Well, my extensively edited and rewritten first book, with new simple title, is being read, by me, possibly quite badly, but for free, on YouTube! 
The link below takes you to the Playlist, which will grow as I add new readings to it.

Keeping the ball rolling

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 07 June 2016 · 81 views

So things have descended into a certain amount of inactivity on this blog, basically because my attention is elsewhere. I still plan to write up my experiences running The Perishing of Sir Ashby Phipps more thoroughly, but have been sidetracked. 
My main reason is that I've moved almost seamlessly into writing another scenario, also set in Gaslight...

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

Posted by GBSteve in Blog GBSteve, 17 May 2016 · 144 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 · 139 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 · 131 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...

Dark evocative description and the occasional out...

The Queen of Night (Arkham Gazette #3)

Posted by Khelbiros in Keeper Reflections, 05 April 2016 · 177 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...

The team are introduced to N’s colleague C. C is dressed in a conservative business suit and looks like a civil servant.
– I do try to look unimpressive.
– Congratulations. You’ve succeeded.
– So you’re the head of Section D, but you’re called C?
– Yes, it’s to confuse the enemy.
– They’re not the only ones. – Jeeves, can you speak French?

BM 360

While on a brief visit to the British Museum I took the opportunity to test out a small "360" (degree) camera, a Ricoh Theta S which I managed to acquire through the Amazon Affiliate scheme . The image quality is low (but then it is relatively cheap - especially when purchasing with credit) but it does give an idea of what may be coming down the pip...

Scenario 1 - London - January 1923 - 2nd posting

Posted by Caligulaa in Horror on the Orient Express - Total Recap!, 04 October 2015 · 547 views

Colonel Williams and Frank Patterson were clearly running out of patience. Who was this irritating mustache man who so eagerly watched their conversation with Professor Smith ? And why did he run away when he was noticed? Time to find out. They were getting ready to bust the door to the antiques shop "The Crescent Treasury " when Frank suddenly put his...

Latest episode: King of the Ghouls

Posted by nickedwards in City State of the Eldritch Overlord, 04 October 2015 · 464 views

In the previous session I had to improvise having left the entire prep work at home (or rather I thought I had left it last time and hadn't). Luckily I did have the Pelgrane campaign Eternal Lies and was able to adapt the Maltese episode at short notice. I already had necter and 'the mouths' from Eternal Lies worked into the plot so it wasn't difficult to...
