yock's Lovecraftathon: The Dunwich Horror

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 28 June 2015 · 77 views

I had to wait a little while before reading this, because it's a *long* one. I know that it's often well regarded among fans, and is one of the most famous tales. But I've never read it before. So here goes. 
In the opening sections, indeed the whole first half of the story, it seems very similar to "The Colour out of Space", with the description of...

Ogham Cthulhu

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 28 June 2015 · 60 views

Some mere handful of you may be aware of the Cthulhu Breakfast Club . A smaller number might remember an odd little artefact that recently appeared on the show. 
I did send it anonymously, but will now raise my head above the parapet to say that I've published a blogpost outlining the conception, creation and meaning of the Ogham stone package. I p...

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

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 27 June 2015 · 63 views

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...

Jazz Age

November 22, 1923
"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

Posted by groakes in Trail of Nyarlathotep: The Masks of New York, 05 June 2015 · 245 views

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.

Posted by Butters in Butters' Blog, 27 May 2015 · 227 views

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...

MoN session 10: An interlude (24/4/2015)

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 14 May 2015 · 174 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.

Horror on the Orient Express Keepers Campaign Notes: Soundtrack (Spoilers)

Posted by Taavi in Blog Taavi, 09 February 2015 · 236 views
Jazz Age, Music

Having recently started the Keeping the new Horror on the Orient Express, I'm experimenting with different music for the Soundtrack.

As well as the HotOE Symphony, I've been trying out pieces that are contemporary and/or good at capturing a mood or theme of a place. So in London I mostly played period Jazz, but when the heat was on, I used the Clash's "L...

After a helpful tip at the police station, the group was off to the Ames Funeral Home, the funeral parlor that had handled the bodies after the Roby murders. Inside an old but well-kept white house, they were greeted by Mr. Ames himself. The mortician remembered the affair well: making the bodies suitable for viewing, he said, had been quite a task. The e...
