Second helping

Posted by fluffy in Unseen Masters - Keeper's thread. (Players keep out, please), 22 August 2015 · 117 views

Well this is my third attempt at part two. Not sure if Blogging is my thing, stuff I have written keeps disappearing.
So, to the adventure, things took a decidedly deadly turn recently. I blame Theo, he should have done the safety training as Julia said.
The adventurers have had almost too much info to dissemble.
The availability of the modern day techno...

yock's Lovecraftathon: At the Mountains of Madness

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 20 August 2015 · 177 views

This was a reread for me. I've also read it in graphic novel versions. I'd enjoyed it last time, and enjoyed it very much this time too. Indeed I didn't take many notes as I read, because I was so gripped. That is a good thing. One thing that struck me early on was how convincing the story is as an account of a scientific expedition. As a reader I to...

No Games Day for me

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 19 July 2015 · 173 views

Very reluctantly, I'm having to skip YSDC Games Day yet again. I was really hoping to take part this year, and finally meet a few of the fine folks I've run across here. I mentally put aside the time when it was first announced and planned very much to go. It sounds brilliant. 
Unfortunately, that plan was predicated on my having secured a new job...

Well, I've let it fly! It is free now......

Well, I've let it fly! It is free now...... I was going to struggle on a bit longer with it, but it finished at 53,944
So I have let it go!
There should be no heinous errors in this one, as I have worked to a tighter standard than A King In Graeffenland, (some corrections for which, I'll upload in July).
But I've been entirely on my own with this one!
My proof reader doesn't do Horror, and I've gon...

"Mother said there'd be days like this," Jessica Carson thought to herself as she slowly leafed through her husband's files."No, as a matter of fact, she had no freaking clue."

Surely, not even a guilt filled Irish mother could imagine that in one quick year, her unmarried daughter would go from small town school teacher (with a checke...

Trail of Nyarlathotep - Masks of New York: Flashback - The Carlyle Expedition Farewell Party Keeper's Notes Okay. I just looked and it has been a while since I updated this blog. Where has the time gone?

Anyway. As I have stated previously, as much as I like the overall concept of Masks, there are a few things that I decided to change. You have probably read the police investigation parts that I wrote back in 2013 (!). This was to give some substance to the on...

What does it all mean? rambling thoughts and disconnected musings.

What does it all mean? rambling thoughts and disconnected musings. Well some time has passed since my last entry and a lot has happened, I have been thinking about what to write for a long time now so here it goes.
The Rambles campaign unfortunately ended on a whimper and a lot of frustration on my part, though as the Keeper and that it was a home brew understandably a lot of the blame for it ending badly lays at my feet...

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 14 May 2015 · 232 views

As the title implies, nothing noteworthy took place during this session, save the group's decision to follow the expedition's footsteps and leave America for London. Ernest used his influence in the U.K. embassy and the four brave investigators purchased their first class tickets in the luxurious RMS Mauretania embarking for England in a few days.
