Dreamhounds of Paris: The doctor will see you now (2)

Posted by GBSteve in Blog GBSteve, 17 May 2016 · 72 views

In Session 2, this happened.  
Dali wakes up in an arm chair, naked and cold from having spent the night there. He stalks back upstairs and still naked starts to paint on the great canvas in the attic that he had prepared some days earlier. In the cold morning light inspiration comes. The painting is off a forest but is somehow also Gala, picked ou...

The playing of Sir Ashby Phipps

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 09 May 2016 · 89 views

So this weekend I finally managed to run the long-awaited playtest of The Perishing of Sir Ashby Phipps . 
(This post is spoiler-free.) 
Amongst other benefits, this means I no longer have to try and keep the details of the scenario to myself; I can actually discuss it with the close friends with whom I typically talk about all things gamey....

Ring a Ring o' Roses

Posted by Emrys in Nightmares in Norfolk, 07 May 2016 · 94 views

Mollie has a decision to make when they get back to the cars - does she slap Caleb or shoot him? I do like a little foreshadowing. Don't you? Mollie: I have a decision to make. Do I slap or shoot Caleb?
Caleb: For any particular reason?
M: Yes. Six of them.
C: That you walked into on your own, with no help from anyone else.
M: No backup either....

yock's Lovecraftathon: Onto Eldritch Tales

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 27 April 2016 · 89 views

I've just bought the Eldritch Tales collection of more Lovecraft writings, so will soon be resuming my Lovecraftathon series of reviews. I'm probably not going to review the poetry - I have a bit of a hit and miss relationship with poetry! And ditto the essays. But I plan to review all the short stories, both those by Lovecraft only and his collaboration...

Minced meat

Poor Paul, he really has had some bad luck (!) in this campaign. Still his characters have been immersive and enjoyable. Maybe he is going for a record. I feel that Gregor may return.
Sometimes, I am sure that you have noticed, we give pause to the appropriate reactions that PCs 'should' be feeling.
This probably happens in your games experiences as wel...

Cross-Group Game Session for HotOE

Posted by Galbraith in Mutterings from Providence, 22 April 2016 · 97 views

I'm currently running two groups on HotOE , and they've just about finished the Lausanne chapter. Spoilers to follow. 
The two groups both, for very different reasons, had only one party member partake of the dream drug. One, because he straight-up tasted the green liquid before they had a chance to finish reading the Journal, and the other group out...

The Queen of Night (Arkham Gazette #3)

Posted by Khelbiros in Keeper Reflections, 05 April 2016 · 135 views

I ran (Kept?) 'The Queen of Night' scenario in early January 2016 as a one shot. This was recently published in Arkham Gazette #3. I think we completed it in over six hours. The scenario can be neatly divided into two halves – a rather dry research segment, and a more exciting second half where the players in my game were desperately try to find the lost...

The team are introduced to N’s colleague C. C is dressed in a conservative business suit and looks like a civil servant.
– I do try to look unimpressive.
– Congratulations. You’ve succeeded.
– So you’re the head of Section D, but you’re called C?
– Yes, it’s to confuse the enemy.
– They’re not the only ones. – Jeeves, can you speak French?

Cults Across America

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 14 March 2016 · 212 views

Cults Across America I am still working my way through the Miskatonic University source book, hoping to assimilate the contents before I present it to the kids. I decided to dust off the old "Cults Across America" by Atlas games for this sunday's recreation. This is the first time I have played this game with 5 players, and it was a lot of fun. I would recommend this g...

Return of Our Heroes, Continued


To finish off the story of our heroes, such as they are: 
After a great deal of fumbling around, our heroes, not without a considerable show of reluctance, decided that they had to actually go and inspect the villa and mill of Aulus Calpurnius. This, they accepted, put them in some risk of actually, maybe, kind of, sort of, possibly encountering a M...

BM 360

While on a brief visit to the British Museum I took the opportunity to test out a small "360" (degree) camera, a Ricoh Theta S which I managed to acquire through the Amazon Affiliate scheme . The image quality is low (but then it is relatively cheap - especially when purchasing with credit) but it does give an idea of what may be coming down the pip...

Colonel Williams and Frank Patterson were clearly running out of patience. Who was this irritating mustache man who so eagerly watched their conversation with Professor Smith ? And why did he run away when he was noticed? Time to find out. They were getting ready to bust the door to the antiques shop "The Crescent Treasury " when Frank suddenly put his...

Latest episode: King of the Ghouls

Posted by nickedwards in City State of the Eldritch Overlord, 04 October 2015 · 430 views

In the previous session I had to improvise having left the entire prep work at home (or rather I thought I had left it last time and hadn't). Luckily I did have the Pelgrane campaign Eternal Lies and was able to adapt the Maltese episode at short notice. I already had necter and 'the mouths' from Eternal Lies worked into the plot so it wasn't difficult to...
