Posted by golfsale in Blog golfsale, 19 October 2014 · 80 views
Jazz Age

The team are called in to investigate artist Victoria Foster, whose paintings have recently become better but weirder.

“Oh no! Not again!” (Face-palm moment.)

“Would I be right in thinking that this change in Miss Foster’s art occurred after she had started reading some strange books?”

“No…but she had been having unusually vivid nightmares.”

“Yep. Tha...

CoC 7e, Jazz Age, Spoilers

I: Character Creation & 'Opening Night' Having spent our whole first session running through the 7th Edition rules changes and making characters, this week we got straight into the action.

It's late September, 1928. Doctor Kellan Tirol is a somewhat celebrated scholar in the relatively young field of Psychoanalysis. Originally from Baltimore, he decided to take an indefinite sabbatical abroad...

SPOILERS: Eternal Lies Session 22: Player Materials

Posted by Lisa in Blog Lisa, 03 October 2014 · 72 views

Just one letter this time. It caused Martin's player to bemoan the niceness of some of the cultists. Another one I did for the session after this one caused Vito's player to say that it was sad and horrific how human the cultists were. This means I'm doing my job -- and to a fair extent, that the authors of Eternal Lies did their job as well. Sure, there...

A Probationary Podcast

Posted by SammyD in Shadows Over Providence, 23 September 2014 · 123 views

With all the raw audio from our several months of gaming, I've decided it might be fun to edit these into a podcast series. Below is a link for a ROUGH draft of our first episode, which I'm releasing to gauge interest in an ongoing series, as well as seek feedback for what people like/dislike. Thanks!

Just the Basics

Posted by KinginYellow176 in Delta Green- Cell X, 21 September 2014 · 147 views

So, because I want to be able to keep all my notes in one place, this is the basic run down of the campaign. Short, sweet, slightly stupid.

Not that this is ever gonna be published but... SPOILERS AHEAD.

So, the basis is that it's set in Seattle. There have been gangland hits lately where the bodies have been cut to the bone, had their mouth smashed i...

Kraken 2014 Report

Posted by malcojones in Blog malcojones, 28 August 2014 · 326 views
Convention, WWII, Review

As some of you may know, Kraken is a bi-annual gaming vacation at the Schloss Neuhausen in Germany. There is certainly enough Call of Cthulhu related activity and enough Lovecraftian influence to make it worth reporting on at yog-sothoth.com.

Kraken is more leisurely than many cons, a gaming vacation, lasting 5 days. For the flat rate you get all food AN...

PDF Primary

Posted by PoC in PoC's Yog Blog, 28 August 2014 · 597 views

PDF Primary So, after several years progression it's come to pass that I've decided to make the switch to acquiring PDFs as my primary format for the consumption (reading) of roleplaying games.

With advances in PDF reading technology (Kindles, iPads, other computer tablets) combined with what seems a diminishing amount of storage space at Innsmouth House I've come t...

Old Homemade Scenarios

Posted by Puriri in Arkham Enquirer, 06 August 2014 · 251 views

After four years running Call of Cthulhu I wanted to let my old high school scenarios and campaigns loose on the rest of the world.

I should warn that spelling/plot holes/bad research are all possible and likely, however I am quite proud of a moment or two that came together nicely in play. Oh and also sections of some of these may include bits and piece...

Brian McNaughton's Seelura

Posted by maglaurus in Blog maglaurus, 04 August 2014 · 367 views

Below is my interpretation of the lands and kingdoms represented in Brian McNaughton's weird fantasy anthology The Throne of Bones . My understanding is McNaughton himself never created a map for his world because he felt it would limit him creatively and I have yet to find any example of the world of Seelura translated into an rpg format. I'm hoping to g...

Arkham Detective Tales 03 - Magic Inc, The Cobble Hill Horror 02

Posted by OlderNick in OlderNick's Blog, 08 June 2014 · 332 views

I had a week between sessions to prepare the second part of the scenario, which turned out to be quite the challenge with my rusty GM:ing abilities. While I did come up with some interesting ideas through panicked googling, it wasn’t until a few hours before we gathered to play that I did so.

Hardly optimal…

Things got underway with Vince Garluc...

CthulaWho = Doctor Who + Call of Cthulhu

Posted by jaysun81 in CthulaWho, 13 April 2014 · 317 views

Every Christmas some of my family, and occasionally a few friends, get together to play a game of the tabletop roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu . Well, several years ago I sat down and put my mind to bringing the Time Lords from Doctor Who into the Call of Cthulhu game. So, I began working on a way to create a Time Lord character. Eventually with a few...

Once again my group is going to be taking a break from Pathfinder to play some Call of Cthulhu . I'm going to be running Tatters of the King for them (watch this space for updates!) but since I have a couple of players who are new to the system and the Mythos, I decided to get our feet wet with Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37 .

Catching up Well I have been slightly remiss in not staying up to date on these recaps but now that Ive figured out how to record what I wanted to using Google Hangouts I didn't have the need to do one for the players and any excuse not to write is always a good thing for me and well to be honest those who read these things as well. :-D

A plea to all teenagers wherever they are - Dont EVER give up.

Posted by Tigger_MK4 in Blog Tigger_MK4, 10 March 2014 · 395 views

Its a horrible thing when a child has to bury a parent. It is one of the most traumatic things any human being has to go through, an awful and unfair rite of passage that life requires from all of us eventually. The loss of one so deeply loved - one who can never be replaced - is a painful experience that can barely be imagined by anyone who hasnt gone th...

So I haven’t written in quite some time. I suppose I should make sure I have the time to keep up with a blog but what the hell let’s give it a shot.

One reason I’m starting a blog is because I am seriously considering starting writing some short fiction: particularly science fiction fantasy and/ or horror. I’ve created adventures for rpgs in the past, an...
