Call of Cthulhu – Down Darker Trails 3 – The Murders in Midnight

The investigators follow The Crescent west, where it is being transported to San Francisco by way of Los Angeles.  A few of them get lost along the way and find themselves in the strange town of Midnight in southern California.  Then, the murders begin.  The townsfolk are convinced its being caused by the ghost of a man who was hung 10 years before.  Or he’s come back from the dead.

On March 4, 2018, the Down Darker Trails campaign, taking place in the American West, continued with the original scenario “The Murders in Midnight” based on “The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.” episode “Bad Luck Betty.”  Players were Ashton, Collin, James, and Yorie.

Call of Cthulhu – Down Darker Trails 1 – Ill Met in the West

It’s 1875 and the outlaw John Valentine, along with a good number of his men, have been captured.  But will the train from Nevada to California make it there without incident?  Or is something bound to happen.

On February 18, 2018, I started a Down Darker Trails campaign, taking place in the American West.  We started with an original prologue scenario “Ill Met in the West”  to set the stage for the campaign.  Players were Collin, Ashton, Yorie, and Ben.

Call of Cthulhu – What Rough Beast Session 3

With Doc taken out of the picture by a heart attack, the children find they have an adult ally, but not one who can genuinely help them.  It’s up to them to end the threat, one way or another.  Will they succeed?  Will they survive?

On February 11, 2018, I ran the original scenario “What Rough Beast.”  Meant to be a one-shot, the scenario would go on to last three sessions.  The players rolled up investigators who were all around 13 years old, youths who are the only ones who might believe what is happening in the village.  Players were Yorie, John, Austin, Ambralyn, Kyle, and Ben.

Call of Cthulhu – What Rough Beast Session 2

Convinced what is plaguing the town of Sanguis is vampires, the children do what they can to stop the rising tide of terror.  First they must destroy the thing that Tommy Hill has become.  Next, they must find where vampiric plague is spreading from.

Call of Cthulhu – What Rough Beast Session 1

When a little boy from Sanguis, Alabama, gets sick, it’s just the start of the terror that begins infecting the tiny town.  Something is wrong and it has to do with the railroad, the old haunted plantation outside of town, and something evil.

On January 21, 2018, I ran the original scenario “What Rough Beast.”  Meant to be a one-shot, the scenario would go on to last three sessions.  The players rolled up investigators who were all around 13 years old, youths who are the only ones who might believe what is happening in the village.  Players were Kyle, Ben Austin, Ambralyn, John, and Yorie.
