Role Playing Journal

I ran "Mary" from Before the Fall this past weekend. It can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

Sorry about the length. I got carried away again.

 

Only two investigators this time (which worked out well):

 

Liam Smith - Private Investigator

Chip Mathers - Bounty Hunter

 

There are spoilers. The scenario is very open-ended and requires the characters to take a little initiative. They failed in the scenario but I think learned something.

 

BTW, for anyone who has been reading these regulary, the apartment at 326 S. East Street belonged to Bill Sadler, one of the characters that the player running Chip Mathers used to play (before said character died horribly in the basement of the Corbitt House in Boston).

I ran the Call of C'thulhu scenario "Dance of Death" this past weekend. No deaths but one severe sanity loss towards the end. It can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

Characters are:

 

Benjamin Willows - Museum Curator at the Miskatonic University Exhibit Museum

 

Professor Beurigard Johanson - Professor at Miskatonic University

 

Liam Smith - Private Investigator

 

Chip Mathers - Bounty Hunter

 

The session went longer than I thought it would but I think everyone had fun.

I ran Dust to Dust this past weekend and the journal entry can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

There is also a very short journal entry entitled "Interlude: Dr. Katie Brooks" in which I catch up one of my players so she can join the game.

 

The Investigators are:

 

Professor Beaurigard Johanson, Assistant Professor of Archaeology, Miskatonic University.

 

Dr. Katie Brooks, Professor of Science, Ratcliffe University (on sabattical and looking for a place to hide out).

 

Chip Mathers, Bounty Hunter.

 

Mathers and Johanson have been through some disturbing things of late and it is telling on the investigators, though Professor Johanson is recovering (seemingly) more quickly that Mr. Mathers.

I ran a Call of Cthulhu event at a tiny, yearly gathering of friends called CaesarCon (as the first fell on the Ides of March) this past weekend. Last year I started "Spirits Over Arkham" and this year finished it up. It can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

Characters who came back were:

 

Bionka Weathersby - writer of weird fiction

Jacob Silverman - archaeologist

Jebediah Hook - farm hand

 

And a new character:

 

Judge Richard Ranquist (retired) - former judge

 

Two people were not able to join us from last year. Their characters were:

 

Father Gerald Webber - priest

Stephanos Covenant - Detective with the Pinkerton Agency

 

If you want to read the first part of this one, you'll have to scroll down through the journal, as it was played a year ago.

I ran a short game for a single player who wanted to do some research on his house, "Goldengate," in Arkham Saturday. We played for about an hour and I was able to pull out some of the props I've been waiting for him to discover.

 

The role-playing journal entry can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

The character is Elliot Macy, dilettante. The last piece of information he found was actually a full-length pamphlet I made.

The long and last entry for my NW Ohio Call of Cthulhu game can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

I ran Momento Mori, the sequel to Dance of Death. This is the last game I'll be running until I can find a new group in N.C.

 

The characters are:

 

Professor Beaurigard Johanson: Assistant Professor of Archaeology, Miskatonic University

 

Chip Mathers: Bounty Hunter

 

Eliott Macy: Dilettente

 

Dr. Katie Brooks: Professor of Science, Miskatonic University

 

Jebediah Hook: Farm Hand/Gardener

 

Claire Bingham: Prostitute

 

Verity McCleod: Nurse

 

-- NPCs --

 

Henry Walker: Macy's Butler

 

Lin Chow: Macy's Cook (Tcho-Tcho)

 

It was a good last session with a strange ending. Kind of a nice way to end the NW Ohio group.

 

Thanks to everyone who's been reading these. I'll write again when I get another group to Keeper for.

Since I've moved to NC, I no longer have a regular gaming group. However, I was able to run an original scenario at the Mid-Atlantic Convention Expo in High Point last weekend (despite this broken heart). I ran the scenario twice, the second building upon what happened in the first (as you shall see). They are in my journal under Phantom of Wilson Creek 1, 1.5, 2, and 2.5. They can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

The first group (run Friday night) consisted of:

 

 

Dr. Joseph Abington, Professor of Anthropology at Boston University

 

Alexander Reed, accountant

 

Mary Weatherly, Reed's secretary

 

Dr. Frederick Munn, physician

 

Christopher "Chip" Nelson, graduate student in Anthropology, Boston University

 

 

The second group ran through this on Sunday morning. They consisted of:

 

 

Alexander Talbot, private eye (hired by an Abington through an attorney)

 

Andrew Hastings, psychiatrist

 

 

It was a lot of fun, both groups did well, and it was nice to get my mind off my problems for a while.

I'm not yet running another campaign but got to play in one this past weekend. The journal entry can be found here:

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=search&bywhat=aid&exact=1&forwhat=Max_Writer

 

It's the most recent and Entitled "Eric's WWI Game - Rescued!"

 

The game takes place in 1918 during the Great War. My character is Captain Christopher Reed, a medical doctor with the Allies. Other characters include:

 

Nurse Felicity Alders

 

Lieutenant Anton Kemps

 

Private Harold Olver

 

Corporal William Grimm

 

Jean Pierre Valois

 

I hope everyone will excuse the use of the words "colored," "negro," and "boy" when referring to the black npc/former pc who was imprisoned with my character. It is written to reflect the dialect and mentality of the time and does not indicate any racism on my part or the part of any of the players.

I'm glad you're playing semi regularly Max. I always enjoy reading your transcripts. The one you wrote up for the Vermont fragment you developed gave me a lot of ideas and was a real winner.

I ran Delta Green Friday and it went fairly well. You can read it here (in nine parts 1-0 through 1-8):

 

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blogs/2951-Max_Writer

 

I know this one doesn't really fit the Classic Era section but I'm trying to keep all of my CoC stuff together.

 

I'm supposed to run it one more time (to finish up) this Friday.

 

SPOILERS BTW.
