– You’ve heard the phrase “footloose and fancy free”? Well, we’ve shot your foot off and your fancy’s going next.
– Sorry: that’s what we call the Death Trap Chamber.
– You’re a bit too cocky, but you won’t be if you carry on like that.
– What’s in the cave?
– It’s virtually deserted.
– You mean there’s someone in it?
– Er, yes.
– I’m so close to killing...

SPOILERS: Eternal Lies Session 25 (long)

Posted by Lisa in Blog Lisa, 21 November 2014 · 64 views

This write up has spoilers for both Eternal Lies and "Wives of March".

In theory, this session was to cover the interval between the second and third acts in Eternal Lies. In practice, we'll need at least part of next session as well. I don't want to rush this interval, as it's probably the last one before the end of act three.

Folks had various plan, r...

Arrival at the Sanatorium (7/11/2014)

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 10 November 2014 · 132 views

Life has the bad habit of interfering in game plans, so several months have passed since announcing my intention to run the Masks campaign without any actual progress (save dusting my memory concerning aspects of the story, of course). Six insane gamers have finally gathered and, hopefully, before this year's turn we 're gonna start. In the meantime, I 'v...

Chapter III: Meeting Master Roby

Posted by Mr. Bill in Mr. Bill Presents: Tatters of the King, 04 November 2014 · 170 views

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...

A Probationary Podcast

Posted by SammyD in Shadows Over Providence, 23 September 2014 · 155 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 · 209 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 · 366 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 · 665 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 · 286 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 · 423 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 · 367 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 · 371 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...

Machine Tractor Station Kharkov-37

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

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...

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

Posted by Tigger_MK4 in Blog Tigger_MK4, 10 March 2014 · 420 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...
