Playing Call of Cthulhu online at Play@YSDC

I play the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game online, by forum, at Play@YSDC. There are lots of games running there, from all time periods, so Dark Ages, through Gaslight (Victorian), 1920s (Classic era for Call of Cthulhu), Modern, and other eras / often futuristic. It's a really good way for playing if you can't fit in face-to-face gaming. I can roleplay with people around the world, and in multiple scenarios at once. We've just finished a modern scenario, from one of the "Strange Tales of Dread & Wonder" collections. And I'm still playing in a Gaslight game from Cthulhu Britannica, and a hand-crafted Dr Who / Call of Cthulhu crossover game set on Pluto in the future. That last one is the second in a planned campaign of games. The first was set in the British Museum in the 1930s, with evil egyptologists, mummies and ghouls. We got through that, but have to see if we all make it through Pluto and the Mi-Go. Much fun anyway. I also played through The Haunting on the site, the introductory scenario in the game rulebook.
