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.
