Our Ladies of Sorrow

Recommended Posts

Hey Doc, can I ask you, how well do you think these scenarios would translate to a medieval BRP setting, a sort of mythic Europe?

While not impossible, it would take some real work on the Keeper's part. It's a very contemporary setting. The first scenario, for example, takes place in and around a five-story apartment building called "The Three Sisters."

Hmmm might changing it to an Inn be a possiblity.

"Our Ladies" looks great. Is there a distributor for MRP products in the U.K?

IGUK.com will likely be carrying the book; they already carry Dead But Dreaming and New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley. We still haven't been able to raise any interest from Esdevium distributors.

Or a surviving Roman-style insula tenement block.

Yes. All quite possible. Although the adventures are designed for contemporary America, the story's theme(s) are actually timeless and could be adapted to almost any era.

having just received my copy of NToMV, I rushed to order OLoS. I am taking my own swwet time reading the first collection of scenarioes, and enjoying the quality of the writing and the inventiveness of the scenarioes. I'll post a review soon. How good to see Doc and the others back in such style!

That might work very well for me, as my campaign takes place in Italy, among other places. And if it doesn't work out, I can always use it for our classic era CoC.

If memory serves, Kevin even states in the manuscript that the setting for the first scenario of the campaign is any moderate sized-university town in the US. I don't think there is anything overly-US about it, though, so it could be ported over with just a few adjustments.

I've pre-ordered OLoS. I hope you plan to produce more modern scenarios.

Thanks Doc, though I couldn't find any actual MRP products at IGUK. Have you tried Leisure Games or Gameslore for selling your wares?

We sent a shipment to them last week. If they don't have it listed yet, it should be available in the next few days.

 

I will check on the two stores you mentioned. Thanks for the tips.

As I said, there's nothing about this book that demands a contemporary setting, or an American one, as long as the Keeper is prepared to make necessary adjustments.

 

Book One needs some sort of apartment building, as noted earlier.

 

Book Two requires an isolated, desolate area such as a desert, or tundra, or mountain range, or other.

 

Book Three takes place in a city/town/community located on the banks of a good sized river.

 

This is a very different kind of adventure, not the sort of thing often seen in CoC.

I bet there were big apartment type buildings in the urban centres of Medieval Italy, something like old Roman ones, or perhaps Arabian style elsewhere? And plenty of mountains or deserts around the Mediterranean, ditto for river etc. Do these features have to be sited close to each other?

 

Besides, the whole Roman Goddess aspect (there is one right?), fits again very well. 8)

So, the art has started to come in, and Doc is doing layout. He sent me a sample of the artwork for our loyal fans to enjoy.

Gosh, would that be a Hand of Glory she's carrying, or just a Very Elaborate But Not Suspicious At All candle? ;D

now there's an idea for a book of scenarios - the history of an artifact (like a Hand of Glory) from acncient/Roman to modern times/scifi ...

 

(although admittedly hands of glory were only first mentioned in about 1400AD or so)[/b]
