Found a website called archve.org that allows people to freely post audio and text files. The link to my game is https://archive.org/...uEdgeOfDarkness
Since thisis only my third game keeping, I implore all the keepers to review my keeping. Thank you for all your posts.
I've heard it. There was something wrong with the recording as towards the last third or so it kept jumping foward and back, but I could stiull follow the story.
Drone, I have to tell you, your players are the dumbest bunch of misfits I've ever heard playing CoC
since I ran a scenario were they chose to assault a nest of vampires during the night
. Bloodthirsty bunch of bastard too! Shooting the hobo's legs off while he's running?! I like my CoC
with guns, but these players are the reason we can't have nice things.
With such poor clay to mold, don't fret if you feel GM
artistry was less good here or there. Time and XP will edge the rough edges.
I was impressed with the chaos that ensued after the creature escaped the burning house. I expected and end and epilogue there but you managed to extend the advemture by 1/4 with that.
I'd recommend getting more proficient with the rules and getting your players to read them. At least the core mechanic and Resistance Table. When action was happening inside the house I couldn't really tell what was going on sometimes or what was being rolled.
You apparently misused my advice to make players say how they knew Merriweather. It was not supposed to sound like an imposition to your players. You should have set the premisse they all knew him and he was a figure they respected for some reason, it was up to the player to come up with a reason that fitted his character, something beyind "I met him at a cafe"
You should have used more sanity rolls. I don't mean purpousefully but there was crap happening that definitively merited it after the house burned down.
Teach your players to describe what their characters want to do and how they want to do it rather than asking "Can I have an ---- roll?"
. You are the one that should be asking rolls when needed and a smart player doesn't want to roll at all and will try to set his PC's actions in a manner that might avoid the need for one when possible.
Your gaming environment didn't sound optimal. There were third parties talking and cell phones ringing. If possible set the time and location of your sesions to avoid this. Rule that cellphones must be off during the game unless someone is a Paramedic, is waiting for a call from a babysitter or something along those lines.
Skill checks. Did you use them? I honestly can't remember listening any.
That's all I can say for now. If I remember something else I'll let you know. All the best for your next session!
