On Dec. 5, 1942, a section of three light bombers from the Soviet 588th Night Bomber Regiment, a regiment consisting solely of women, are sent to bomb a supply depot in the German-held Russian town of Sosnovka. The six women in three planes head out, but will not be the same afterwards.
On Feb. 27, 2016, I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at the Appalachian State University Game Club Game Fest and LAN Party. “Night Witches: The Sosnovka Raid” tells of the daring female soldiers of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment who go to bomb a tiny village on their nightly runs and find something else there as well. My players were Katelyn, Mike, Quinten, Connor, Alex, and Ashton.

A warehouse full of who-knows-what, a downed helicopter in the parking lot, and a herd of casualties blocking the way; there’s a reason Anton’s old outfit didn’t make it out of St. Louis alive. Will the Reformers suffer the same fate? Can they lay their fellow takers to rest? Will they operate heavy machinery? Guess you better get to listening.
Laura – “Pixie” Mallory: Former pre-med student who volunteered as an EMT, Pixie was out west on an internship when the Crash went down. She’s been working her way back East and home alongside a slowly dwindling squad of Army Reservists ever since.

Aaron – Antonio “Elder” Delgado: Smuggler turned Mormon missionary who got trapped in the States during the Crash. Now he uses his truck and criminal past to earn enough for a one-way ticket back to Mexico.
The mayor of Charlotte wants to present Arclight and the Outliers (Arclight and Friends?) with medals for their service to the city. But the ceremony proves to be a trap. Can the help of a brand-new superhero save the group, or will Arclight have to kill someone?
I started running a Superworld campaign for students at Appalachian State University in September 2014. The game was set in Charlotte, N.C., starting in the fall of 2014. It was a continuation of the stand-alone game of Superworld I ran in August, though taking place in the present instead of the 1980s, a kind of continuation of that game. This 16th session of the game took place on Jan. 17, 2016, with the original scenario “Pursuit from Down Under.” My players were Kyle, Hannah, Aaron, and Joey.
The role playing journals for the session are here:
