I ran Call of Cthulhu this past weekend, the first session of an experiment using Silent Hill. The scenario, called Restless Dreams (parts 1-1 through 1-10), can be found here:

http://www.yog-sotho...2951-Max_Writer

Investigators are:

Alan O'Shea (Private Investigator)
Thomas Vanderholdt (Researcher)
Dr. Herbert Loomis (Professor of Archaeology at Boston University) - think Tom Selleck
Michael O'Shea (Reporter for the Kingsport Chronicle)

If anyone is interested, I also video recorded the game, though the sound did not come through very well as I think I have the wrong type of microphone. I'll get a new microphone before I video record again. Here's the link to the first one:

Thanks for sharing the video, Max. When I first watched it, I thought that was a Beretta lying on the table. I thought, "Damn, this man knows how to keep his table in line."

Playing/Running: D&D 5e (Curse of Strahd, Reavers of the Harken Wold), Call of Cthulhu (Down Darker Trails), Aces & Eights, Fate (Art Restoration Syndicate)

Glad you enjoyed them. I apologize about the lousy quality. Looks like a microphone is on the list for purchase - and when I can afford it, a new video recorder or camera.

Subscribe, favorite, comment - that's what they always say on YouTube.

I ran the Call of Cthulhu scenario Leaflet Mission at CaesarCon 2013 for four players on the Pretty Lady, a B-17 Bomber dropping leaflets on Germany during WWII. My players chose the co-pilot, flight engineer, ball turret gunner, and waist gunner. I also used a model of a B-17 Bomber as the centerpoint for the game. I plan to run another scenario involving the Big Money at CaesarCon 2014.

I've finally been able to run a Call of Cthulhu game again!  In this case, it was an introductory game for a couple of people who have not done much role playing.  I chose The Case from Curse of Cthulhu as the introductory scenario.  The role playing journals can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sotho...03-02-part-1-1/

http://www.yog-sotho...03-02-part-1-2/

 

I plan to run again within a week or so and finish up the scenario for them.

 

Investigators are:

 

Mary-Jane Holland (researcher) played by Caitlin

John McKeefe (burglar) played by John

 

Additionally, I audio and video recorded the game session.  Audio is not up yet but the playlist of six vids of the game can be found here:
