yock's Lovecraftathon: The Outsider

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 22 April 2015 · 52 views

Nice opening quote from a poem by Keats. I think I will have to look up the original!

Once again wondering how much might be autobiographical here, in the opening words about a childhood spent alone, among old books and the like.

Nice gothic feel after that. Did Lovecraft read gothic fiction, even genre defining classics like The Castle of Otranto?

Ver...

Posted by Serazu in Blog Serazu, 22 April 2015 · 39 views

The whole session revolved around the party's attempts to peek into Dr. Huston's file concerning the late Roger Carlyle. Everyone did something, Sergei though was the one to contribute the most to the team effort.

In short, the next day after their appointment with Erica Carlyle, the investigators spent their time around the block the Medical Affairs Boa...

Thoughts on "Black Wings"

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 22 March 2015 · 232 views

Recently, I finally reached the end of the hefty Black Wings , “Twenty-One Tales of Lovecraftian Horror” edited by S.T. Joshi. I picked it up a while ago in a burst of enthusiasm after it was discussed on the HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast, but hadn’t got round to finishing it. Last year was dedicated to a focused reading project, in an attempt to cut down...

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

Posted by Taavi in Blog Taavi, 09 February 2015 · 141 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...

Chapter III: Meeting Master Roby

Posted by Mr. Bill in Mr. Bill Presents: Tatters of the King, 04 November 2014 · 301 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 · 267 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 · 362 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

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

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.

Old Homemade Scenarios

Posted by Puriri in Arkham Enquirer, 06 August 2014 · 444 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 · 579 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 · 538 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…
