yock's Lovecraftathon: Onto Eldritch Tales

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 27 April 2016 · 30 views

I've just bought the Eldritch Tales collection of more Lovecraft writings, so will soon be resuming my Lovecraftathon series of reviews. I'm probably not going to review the poetry - I have a bit of a hit and miss relationship with poetry! And ditto the essays. But I plan to review all the short stories, both those by Lovecraft only and his collaboration...

Minced meat

Posted by fluffy in Unseen Masters - Keeper's thread. (Players keep out, please), 25 April 2016 · 41 views

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 · 46 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...

When danger reared its ugly head / He bravely turned his tail and fled

The investigators have reunited outside the boarding house. This easy to manage state of affairs doesn't last long, of course. That would be too easy. 
"I think we should find as much information about these things as we can, as you say." agrees Caleb. 
"Starting with what the hell they are," interjects Mollie. "Because all we've got is that it'...

Dark evocative description and the occasional out...

The Queen of Night (Arkham Gazette #3)

Posted by Khelbiros in Keeper Reflections, 05 April 2016 · 102 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?

Cults Across America

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 14 March 2016 · 164 views

Cults Across America I am still working my way through the Miskatonic University source book, hoping to assimilate the contents before I present it to the kids. I decided to dust off the old "Cults Across America" by Atlas games for this sunday's recreation. This is the first time I have played this game with 5 players, and it was a lot of fun. I would recommend this g...

Professional skills

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 28 February 2016 · 203 views

How skills work is of course a much-chewed-over topic here on Yoggie. The BRP system is inclined to be somewhat swingy, and while usually more or less fine for the rules-light game I want, it sometimes produces results that feel unsatisfying. The most common of these are when characters who are skilled professionals nevertheless fail to do something tha...

Return of Our Heroes, Continued


To finish off the story of our heroes, such as they are: 
After a great deal of fumbling around, our heroes, not without a considerable show of reluctance, decided that they had to actually go and inspect the villa and mill of Aulus Calpurnius. This, they accepted, put them in some risk of actually, maybe, kind of, sort of, possibly encountering a M...

BM 360

Posted by PoC in PoC's Yog Blog, 11 November 2015 · 465 views

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 · 460 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 · 398 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...

Session 2 and 3: Hollywood or Bust. January 9th, 1937 to January 16th, 1937. Approximately 18 hours of game time 
My players did a nice job of sussing out the clues scattered about LA. A confrontation with Buchwald and an interview with Clarendon on the stage of...
