Call of Cthulhu – Fear Jet 1972

Tenebris Studios, a second rate, blaxploitation movie studio, is sending its best actors to do some location shots in Houston, Texas, along with the producer and director of the Bond-esque movie Mr. Black. However, the Learjet they’re taking there isn’t all that it seems and they find themselves somewhere far more terrible.

I ran the original Call of Cthulhu scenario Fear Jet at the App State Gaming Club Gamefest on October 28, 2017, at Appalachian State University. The players were Ryan, Kyle, Abbie, Xavier, Jonathon, and Kurt.

Call of Cthulhu Introductory Campaign 2 – Dead Man Stomp

When one of the investigators asks another to come to New York City to visit, neither expect it will lead them to the mob and the supernatural.

I started running a Call of Cthulhu campaign for a new group of students at Appalachian State University in September 2017. The game started in Bristol, Connecticut, in 1922. The 2nd session of the game took place on October 1, 2017, with the scenario “Dead Man Stomp” from the Call of Cthulhu 6th Edition rules. My players were with John and Austin.

Call of Cthulhu Providence Campaign 49 – Dog Will Hunt

The investigators finally arrive in Louisiana in the hunt for wildcatters and missing Cajuns. They find strangeness in the town of Montegut, a missing local, and finally head into the bayou at night. It’s not pretty.

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 49th session of the game took place on September 24, 2017, with the scenario “Dog Will Hunt” by Richard A. Becker from Unspeakable Oath #18. My players were James, Ben, and Yorie.
