TERROR - adapted as a start to a GRU SV8 campaign

Posted by Madam30th in Blog Madam30th, 13 August 2017 · 65 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...

Part 2 Form and Void As the group stood around the SUV an unusual car pulled into the lot. The vehicle had clearly been a Herse once but some stylish modifications had given it a second life. Maria recognized it. The car pulled up and out stepped Esther Smith, Maria’s personal hairstylist. Maria had not turned up for work since filming had h...

yock's Lovecraftathon: The Tomb

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 29 July 2017 · 160 views

Pushing ahead with one more story review before the end of this month it's nice to get to a longer piece again. I like short stories, but often they are just too short for me, too slight, or too thin an idea padded out. This one looks like a good length, though whether it uses that length well I'll find out shortly as I read. 
Again first person narr...

The Madness is Illusory

Posted by MiskatonicProf in The Zen of the Strange, 25 July 2017 · 89 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...

Shadows of YogSothoth chapter one COMPLETE

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 20 July 2017 · 126 views

After about 9 hours of play chapter on of the Shadows campaign is finished. No one died, but two of the three investigators are in the single digits of luck. Luck spending took all the punch out of the climactic villain. I am considering disallowing luck roles for combat. Then again, if not for the luck these characters would not survive to see chapte...

Mythic CoC 02 - It's moving!

http://www.nchistori...ldkyhometom.jpg At the boarding house, the door was opened by a stolid looking Portuguese woman, a miss Ferreira. 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...

Off table chat

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 26 June 2017 · 164 views

My weekly online game was cancelled again due to real life issues but a couple of us still got together for a chat and it was pretty interesting seeing the differences in play style and how to run a game.
What came out if the fairly long chat was I was basically the only one who still preferred Sixth edition whilst the others much preferred the newer Seve...

NYC #13 Blackest Hills, Blackist Night

New York, December 11, 1923 New York City proved to be the tonic to the ails of the weary. Dr. Nathaniel Millheim had been six months removed from his last mind altering Mythos episode and was at the top of his game as a pulp writer. Steven O'Hara was now a professor of physics at Columbia University, getting research offers, and giving his dilettant...

CoC 7e, New to Cthulhu

Beyond The Bridgewater Triangle : First Session 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...

Apparently, my paperbacks are available in libraries.

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 12 April 2017 · 406 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 · 594 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 · 453 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...

A new group, a new campaign

Posted by coomber in coomber's Blog, 20 January 2017 · 735 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...

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.

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

Posted by yronimoswhateley in The Apocalyptic Log of Yronimos W., 22 November 2016 · 723 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...
