Call of Cthulhu Campaign (High Point, NC) – Restless Dreams Part 2

I ran a short Call of Cthulhu 1920s campaign for some friends in High Point, North Carolina, back in 2012. The campaign started in Arkham, Massachusetts, but quickly moved to Silent Hill, Maine. Unfortunately, the campaign ended due to lack of interest in the players and was never completed.

The fourth session continues the original scenario “Restless Dreams,” my adaption of Silent Hill II to Call of Cthulhu. In this one, the characters actually enter the lost town of Silent Hill and begin to encounter strange and terrible things.

This game took place on April 26, 2012. My players were Ken, Steve, and Erik.

Teenagers from Outer Space – Enter the Drag Race

In the 1980s, aliens invaded the earth. Their goal wasn’t to take over the planet or destroy mankind. Rather, they wanted better educations for their children. They enrolled their kids in our schools; shopped in our shopping malls; hung out in our fast food joints. Interplanetary travel became common. Otherwise, life on Earth didn’t change much.

Gruf of Purrsephoni X, Zaxil from Jabidar-3, Johann Strovavich, and Grood were three of those alien teens. This is one of the stories of the television sit-com of their life.

On Sept. 7, 2014, I ran a play test of the Teenagers from Outer Space rpg to review it in Knights of the Dinner Table Magazine, using the introductory scenario from the game book. My players were Nissa, James, John, and Bo.

Call of Cthulhu – The Harlotville Horror

Since the Hobbs Oil Strike of 1927, Dr. Adam Silverberg, a history professor at the University of New Mexico, had been doing research in the hopes of finding the location of another huge oil field and making some extra money on the side. In the spring of 1928, he stumbled across something that seemed to bear fruit.

The information he’d found was an account of a ghost town in the western part of the state in the Plains of San Augustine. The town was called Harlotville and what he could piece together was that it was settled in 1825 by a group of prostitutes headed west to make a better life for themselves. There was some trouble with a wagon and the harlots made a home where they found a spring in the desert. Over the next 20 years, enough people (mostly men) migrated to the area and stayed that it actually became a town. The town no longer existed. During the Mexican American War, everyone was either killed in the town or fled.

By the early summer of 1928, Silverberg had contacted the Midwest Refining Company, the same company that had made the Hobbs Oil Strike of the year before in eastern New Mexico. That had put him in contact with a vice president of the company, one Roger Stanford. An expedition was set up to investigate the site.

On April 26, 2014, at NerdCon 2014 at Appalachian State University, I ran the original Call of Cthulhu scenario “The Harlotville Horror.” My players were Teri, James, John, Katie, Caitlin, and Logan.
