On naming scenarios

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Blog Shimmin Beg, 09 February 2016 · 4 views

This is based (as in, there is some copy-pasting) on a forum post I made ages ago, but I've been thinking about it again recently due to, well, trying to write a bunch of scenarios: What's a good name for a Call of Cthulhu scenario? Scenario titles need to fulfil several different functions, and these pull in slightly different direction. Ident...


Sleeper Agents! Part Deux

Posted by golfsale in Blog golfsale, 07 February 2016 · 38 views

“He knows Jeeves!”
“Everyone knows Jeeves. Let’s shoot him.” “Are we desecrating dead bodies now?”
“Do you think Cthulhu would have a problem with that?”
“No, but the priest might.”
“Can we bury him alive?”
“No, he helped us.”
“OK. I’ll shoot him.” The Resistance farmhouse is attacked by a Byakhee. Jeeves fails his SAN roll, whereu...

Cthulhu's Morning

Posted by tammywilding in tammywilding's Blog, 02 February 2016 · 53 views

Cthulhu's Morning Cthulhu rolled upon his bed, a stony plinth set for his head.
He turned his many eyes to gaze, for his Astro Clock of days.
The time was near, he stretched and peered.
But was It Right?
Of that, unclear, he wiped away the grime of Ages,
And went to sit up, slowly, by stages.
As elderly Great Ones are wont to do,
He thought Great Aza...


What Did I Learn Today?

Posted by Judgetrev in Judgetrev's Blog, 18 January 2016 · 140 views

After finishing the game session yesterday, I had a feeling that I did a poor job.
It wasn't until after I wrote up the synopsis that I realized things went just fine! My main problem was that I had spent time making some great props. I rewrote the newspaper article from Edge of Darkness, and made up another
one of my own that I typed up as well...

Cults and how they begin

Posted by fluffy in Unseen Masters - Keeper's thread. (Players keep out, please), 26 December 2015 · 274 views

Well it seems that I have three of the party coming to their senses?
I am willing to take this as far as the players want, not sure if it will make good listening. I am in unknown territory, potentially this could be the start of a new cult wanting to rid the world of hellish monsters from another dimension.
Or they could all be cured.
I am eager to explo...

Most. Appropriate. Prop. Ever.

Back in the cellar Mason and Forest are facing down the slime. Well, Forest is. With Mason it's more a case of him lying there, engulfed in pseudopod.

The taxi driver bravely throws his watering can full of salt onto the tentacle that's enveloped Mason'...


BM 360

Posted by PoC in PoC's Yog Blog, 11 November 2015 · 343 views

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...


Scenario 1 - London - January 1923 - 2nd posting

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 · 276 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...

"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...
