Call of Cthulhu Providence Campaign 31 – The Strange Case of the Brown Mountain Lights Session One

When William Avery Rockefeller goes to Morganton, North Carolina, with some friends and associates in order to finish a deal to purchase a hosiery mill, he doesn’t suspect he’ll get caught up in another missing children’s case. This time an idiot-savant child has gone missing during vacation at Brown Mountain Beach and the investigators quickly help with the search effort for the boy. Instead, they find something strange under the mountain.

I started running a Call of Cthulhu campaign for students at Appalachian State University in March 2014. The game was set in Providence, R.I., starting in the summer of 1925. The 31st session of the game took place on August 15, 2016, with the scenario “The Strange Case of the Brown Mountain Lights” from the monograph The Phantom of Wilson Creek by myself. My players were Katelyn, Collin, Ashton, Kyle, Hannah, and Katie.

Call of Cthulhu – Forbidden Cargo

Port Royal, Jamaica, in April of 1667 was rife with the rumor of a Spanish treasure ship setting sail from Panama with a load of gold, bound for Spain. The crew of the Sweet Vengeance decided it was time to set sail again – this time to pirate themselves some Spanish gold. Unfortunately, others had the same idea and the terrible adventure would lead them to an uncharted island past the Bahamas, a lost city, and the horror that lay beneath it.

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This summer, I ran the original scenario Forbidden Cargo. We played the single session on Sunday, July 10, 2016. My players were Ashton and Collin.

On Sunday, June 26, 2016, I began a new AD&D campaign for friends in the Boone, N.C., area.

Call of Cthulhu – The King of Shreds and Patches Session Two

Learning of a threat to William Shakespeare’s life, the men who had been investigating the strange events in London in the winter of 1603 delve ever deeper into the terrors that are plaguing that fair city. They soon find they are not dealing with just one man but an entire cult. Consulting with Dr. John Dee helps them somewhat, but they might be the only thing that stands in the way of Hastur being summoned into the city.

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This summer, I ran The King of Shreds and Patches by Justin Hynes from Strange Aeons, continuing one character from last summer’s The Pirates of Candle Cove game. We played the second session on Sunday, June 5, 2016. My players were Kyle, Katie, James, and Collin.

Call of Cthulhu – The King of Shreds and Patches Session One

In the winter of the year 1603, the plague is stalking London with a vengeance. When a playwright friend of the former actor Vincent Hawksworth turns up dead and the friend of the love of Octavian Skern asks him to look for a friend, the two incidents seem related. A great conspiracy is afoot and only an actor, a printer, a criminal, a doctor, and a banker are willing to try to stop it.

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This summer, I ran The King of Shreds and Patches by Justin Hynes from Strange Aeons, continuing one character from last summer’s The Pirates of Candle Cove game. We played this first session on Sunday, May 22, 2016. My players were Kyle, Katie, James, Ashton, and Collin.
