CthulaWho = Doctor Who + Call of Cthulhu

Posted by jaysun81 in CthulaWho, 13 April 2014 · 49 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...

Special Collections: Bemerkungen über die (Un)Logische Grundlagen der Menschenphysik

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 10 April 2014 · 57 views

This is the second in this irregular series where I offer some unusual tomes based on my experience in library work, starting with a non-standard tome type and turning it into an example, along with a few ideas for how they might be used.

Manuscripts
Manuscripts are relatively common in academic libraries, which is still not to say all that common. Acad...

Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37

Posted by theuglyamerican in Blog theuglyamerican, 08 April 2014 · 63 views

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 . Why let the toddlers...

Catching up

Posted by Butters in Butters' Blog, 04 April 2014 · 113 views

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
So lets see now the players ha...

Masks of Nyarly Reflection

Posted by Puriri in Arkham Enquirer, 04 April 2014 · 83 views

(SPOILERS PLAYERS SHOULD NOT READ)

So after a year we are almost done with Masks. Shanghai is here in all it's glory, and it's great fun, but I often find myself reflecting on how poorly the campaign itself fares. As it stands Masks suffers from a lack of focus, and a reasonable motivation for the story.

Masks is epic. It spans the globe, spans the myth...

The Condemned

Posted by SammyD in Tales From Providence, 24 March 2014 · 98 views

So this past weekend was the inaugural game for my new group of players, and I decided to introduce them to Call of Cthulhu with the scenario from the Arkham sourcebook, The Condemned. The game itself lasted about 7 hours and I'm really happy with how it went. I had a group of five players, one of whom has experience with CoC, another who had played once...

(After running the Call of Cthulhu scenario “The Case” from Curse of Cthulhu for Caitlin Blackmon and John Forney Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.)

Though they didn’t recognize the time period of the clothing the terrible thing in the chair wore, they saw that it was not clothing common in the 1920s.

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

Posted by Tigger_MK4 in Blog Tigger_MK4, 10 March 2014 · 187 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...

Episode 2: Tick Tock

The Edinburgh branch of Saunderson Investigations stepped off the train. They were down to meet with their London colleagues. They knew they had just suffered the loss of one of their number and felt that their visit could raise morale. The Edinburgh contingent consisted of Philip Murphy, ex-thief and Col. Antony Marsden. The London stable, still reeling...

The Shadow Kingdoms (Pagan Call)

A tip-off from dubiously helpful Chief Inspector MacMorn leads the team to the eRotica sex-shop in a back alley off Old Compton Street in the heart of Soho.

"It's probably gay."
"You go round the front. I'll go round the back."
"No! I can't believe you said that!"

After chatting to the proprietor, Jittery Steve, one of the investigators buys a six-pack...

SPOILERS: Eternal Lies Session 9, LOOOOONG

Posted by Lisa in Blog Lisa, 13 February 2014 · 166 views

As per one of my player's requests, I'm breaking this into sections.

Overview, Pre-Game

This is where I sent things off the rails, at least for a while. Or, it's the session where we made the campaign more truly ours. Or, it's where I shameless nudged things. Maybe all three.

It all started when I got an email from Betsy saying that she wanted Martin t...

Gaslight

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...

Alea jacta est

The die is cast. After three years away from GMing, we 're back in business. On Sunday 9/2 I 've finally determined that keeping the Masks campaign book on the shelf gathering dust for years is a sacrilege unforgiving before the eyes of gods and men; so I made my decision to give it a go. I 'm not involved in any other RPG activity these days and the timi...

CoC 7e, Jazz Age, Spoilers

I ran Dead Light , the scenario given to C7 backers as a bonus, just the other day. It's been a while since I've written a review of a prewritten scenario on this 'blog', so I thought I'd post one this time. Truth be told, I have run a couple of other scenarios vetween this one and The Haunting : Wrong Turn from Cthulhu Britannia , and one I wrote myself...

Breeding Difficulties

Posted by lordof1 in Maybe it -should- happen to a vet, 15 November 2013 · 248 views

Heidi, the three-year old bulldog, waddles across the floor of the prep room. She tries to sit, but her hugely distended abdomen makes that uncomfortable for her, so instead she stands, and pants. Her thick eyelids droop with weariness. Sam and I lift her onto the prep table with some difficulty. Heidi gurgles and splutters as we set her down, then starts...

Dark Souls: Why hello Hastur!

Posted by echofalls in Blog echofalls, 01 October 2013 · 475 views

So, here I am running through the Painted World of Ariamis, trying to escape without dying *again*, or distubing those annoying spear chucking phalanax, when I'm greeted by a most pleasent message:

"Dark Spirit Xanthous King Jeremiah has invaded!"

So I do away with that pest by tricking him into rolling off a cliff, unfortunately meaning that I didn't...

Trail of Nyarlathotep: Masks of New York - 27 December 1924 9:00 AM The detectives arrive at headquarters and are immediately summoned to Lt Poole’s office. He closes the door:

“What the hell are you thinking? Removing a witness from custody like that!”

“She was terrified. She’s the only witness that we have who seems to know something. If she had stayed in The Tombs I don’t think she would have lasted the night.”...
