Something new (as a monograph).

Written by a forum regular, no less (Max_Writer). Congrats Andy/Max.
I'm looking forward to this one: there aren't enough scenarios set out in the boondocks and backwaters of rural America ... and, based on the work he's done proofreading/editing scenarios for my free PDFs I know that Andy is not only a great writer but also a stickler for detail.
Definitely picking up a copy when Jan 1 comes around.

Thanks - I'm thrilled that this is out and can't wait to see my own copies. I just happened to be on Chaosium's site today and there it was. If you check out my blogs here on Yog-Sothoth.com, you can read how some of the players reacted to the various scenarios in my role playing journals.
Hope everyone likes these.
Congratulations, Andy! I'm excited for you. I hope the sales are great! It sounds like an amazing setting, with plenty of play, given the time advancements. I love the idea of playing basically right here where you and I live.
Andy, i've had a quick look at your blog ( you should put up a link to the relevant part, I think it starts on page 13 or 14), I'll try this. You certainly know how to write, which is more than I can say for some monograph writers . So I'm in, though I know nothing about the area depicted
You're right - the role playing journals are very scattered amongst my blogs (and some of the older ones are corrupted, though still readable). Here's the list:
The House on Yellow Buck Mountain (two separate and consecutive games played at Mace 2009):
I ran Return to Yellow Buck Mountain at Mace 2011:
I also ran The Wizard of Wilson Creek at the same convention:
Finally, I ran the Wizard of Wilson Creek again at CaesarCon 2012 (a tiny convention that year for just friends - this year it will be a real convention this March and I'm going to try to run the conclusion of this scenario for the same group of people, if that can be arranged):
I also plan to upload the audio of all of these to the RPPR Community AP Podcast site soon. They'll be here: http://community.roleplayingpublicradio.com/
I should note that as I consider all of my games to take place in the same world, I don't usually run a scenario more than once. In the case of the The House on Yellow Buck Mountain and The Wizard of Wilson Creek, I ran the same scenario again as the earlier group had NOT succeeded in dealing with what was going on at the house, so a later group (of different pregenerated pcs) was sent in to try to deal with it.
As I said above, I also hope to run the conclusion of the second Wizard of Wilson Creek at CaesarCon in northwest Ohio this March. Here's the website for that con: http://www.caesarcon.com/
Additionally, I'll be running a game of Tabloid at the con (What's Buried in Grant's Tomb), a game of Call of Cthulhu (Leaflet Mission - terror aboard a B-17 Bomber during WWII), and a game of Delta Green (Big Trouble in Little Mina - Delta Green Agents must deal with a missing Delta Green Friendly). The CoC and DG game are both original scenarios.
And thanks for the compliment Christian.
This sounds really interesting. I've always run CoC in fairly "civilised" built up areas so this offers a great contrast.
Congratulations on the publishing and I hope sales go well.
Congratulations Andy! I'll definitely be buying The Phantom of Wilson Creek. I also will download and checkout the actual play recordings on RPPR. Your up-coming games sound great too. I hope your record those as well.
Congratulations again, and Happy New Year!
Thanks! I've uploaded the audio of the first scenario: The House on Yellow Buck Mountain (originally called "The Inheritance"). It's here:
This was the first time I ran it and goes along with 1 and 1.5 of The Phantom of Wilson Creek, above. The room was SO loud but you can still make out what happens. Hope people enjoy it.
Nifty - I love scenarios in this neck of the woods.
Happy is the tomb where no wizard hath lain, and happy the town at night whose wizards are all ashes.
Oh, and I do plan on recording the games I'm running in the future. Additionally, I video record the games. The only recording I have of any Wilson Creek stuff is the very last game I ran at CaesarCon last year. Unfortunately, the audio crashed on that one. Though I uploaded it to YouTube, it's not worth watching. I suppose, once I upload the separate audio file, it could be used to supplement the video file ... or I might be able to edit the audio onto the video ... hmmmm.
Anyway, most of my YouTube channel is Minecraft videos, but there are also a few vids of tabletop gameplay for anyone interested. There are several games of Call of Cthulhu - I adapted Silent Hill 2 to the game and ran it though we didn't finish due to a lack of player intest at the end. There's also a Ravenloft: Masque of Red Death game and, most recently, the Birthright game I ran not too long ago. Here's the channel in case anyone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/user/MaxWriter
More uploaded audio is coming as well.
I have watched the Silent Hill adaptation, three or four episodes, I think. It's very entertaining. I enjoyed the mood that was set, kind of still and creepy. Andy, you and I live in the same town. We will have to get together some day and play. All the best-
Thanks for watching DrVlock. Agreed on getting together to play one of these days. Unfortunately, due to the lack of interest of the player who is my main contact with the group in High Point, it doesn't look like Silent Hill will get played any more. I'm still somewhat hopeful, but not expecting it.
The original video for The Wizard of Wilson Creek was terribly damaged. The audio gives out after only a few minutes and the rest is shot. However, yesterday I edited in a separate audio recording to the original video and today have uploaded that 'repaired' video to YouTube. It can be found here:
The audio is a little out of sinc with the video, but close enough to tell what's going on. I'll also be uploaded the audio file alone to the RPPR Community Podcast site in the next few weeks.
