My, what a confusing story those boys had to tell! Still, I'm pleased to hear that the PCs eventually got the Gist of it...

I sympathize with your troubles with Skype, BTW. If my players weren't all good friends of mine, I wouldn't bother to use the thing at all, what with all the trouble it gives.

Well, yes, this week was pretty bad, but as you are saying we rather play with the technical issues than not play at all :D, plus I loved it when

Hey guys,

Just finished listening to the last podcast and it was great as usual.

The new players fit very well into the group.Listening to the last episode,I'm thinking that while the Bradford Players have Neil when it comes to a bad dice rolling at a critical time,you guys seem to have Mark for the job ;)

I'm loving the sub plot involving Mr Ballantine with his new position and new fancy suit.

those little sound effects still work very well and add to the setting.

Can't wait for the next episode.

keep up the good work.

Thank you for the kind words Catherine, glad you are enjoying our adventures.

I appreciate the feedback on the sound effects. When I first included them (live) I was really not sure whether they would too much trouble to manage (they're not) or too distracting. Everyone who has commented on their use has been positive, and they add to our own enjoyment while planing.

Unfortunately, Ed is leaving us after completing The Plantation. He was going to stick around through the end of the scenario, but had some serious technical issues that kept him out of Session 05, which is why we just left him tied up.

I'm certain we'll be seeing more of the Gamma Red agents in the future. Hopefully we'll be able to entice Ed back for a cameo from time to time as well.

Skype of Cthulhu presents an untitled Call of Cthulhu Noir scenario by <a href="http://www.yog-sothoth.com/members/7260-TeaWithGhouls">Seth Williams</a>.

Los Angeles, California
Friday, January 25, 1946

We take a break from the Providence Cycle, to move to Los Angeles in the 1940s. The glitz and glamor of Hollywood has been tarnished by a series of brutal murders which the police and corner's office have been unable to explain. While in a small West Hollywood apartment, a refugee from the War in Europe dreams strange dreams and learns the music from out of the blackness.

Mr. Vargas discovers the horrors recorded on the mysterious film, while Mr. Diktiyarenko is attacked in his apartment by a freakishly large and strong man in a black cloak. Fortunately for all, Jr. Detective Samuel Gritz of the L.A.P.D. has been assigned the case!

I agree! I haven't been able to play so far, and it is very interesting to listen to. Seth is doing a good job with this scenario.

Since the Keeper for our Noir Cycle was away on Father's Day related activities, Randall ran a one-shot scenario. Which ended up taking 3.5 hours to complete (and really, we rushed it), so I had to split the single session into two parts.

I apologize in advance for any crimes against the language :).Also, the scenario is much better than I presented it, but it seems that non face2face sessions take a little bit longer, therefore I needed to take some shortcuts.

No apolgises necessary I've really enjoyed this unusual adventure and I will be checking out M.R.P and buying their New tales on the strength of it. So if you say this adventure is even better then I think its going to be money well spent.
More Cthulhu goodness is never a bad thing so thanks for uploading this
