Call of Cthulhu Introductory Campaign 1 – The Inheritance

A lawyer in Bristol, Connecticut, needs someone to examine a mansion in Sandisfield, Massachusetts, as part of the process of declaring a man missing for seven years legally dead. Something is wrong with the house, however. Very wrong.

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 1st session of the game took place on September 17, 2017, with the scenario “The Inheritance” by Padraic Barrett from the monograph Horror Stories from the Red Room. My players were with John, Austin, Jacob, Ambralyn, and Katelyn.

The investigators accompany one of their own looking for wildcatters in the bayous of Louisiana, but first they board a non-stop train from Boston to New Orleans. When one of the passengers is murdered, they realize they have a mystery on their hands.

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 47th session of the game took place on September 10, 2017, with the scenario “Blood on the Tracks” by J. Todd Kingrea from The Resurrected III: Out of the Vault. My players were James, Hannah, Ben, and Yorie.

Call of Cthulhu – Lost Port Royal

In the year 1692, strange signs and sigils have been appearing all over the town of Port Royal, Jamaica. Additionally, men seem to be going mad when they see them. A few pirates and their associates in town take it upon themselves to try to figure out what is going on in the English colony. Will they be successful or is Port Royal doomed to be lost forever?

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This year I finished off by running the original scenario Lost Port Royal. We played on Friday, July 28, 2017 and my players were Kyle, Hannah, James, Ambralyn, Helen, and Yorie.

Call of Cthulhu – Supped Full with Horrors Part 2

It’s 1613 A.D. and a stagehand has gone missing from the Globe Theater and his wife has demanded his fellow actors find him. The trail leads from the Mermaid Inne to Islington and back again, but why was the man taken away and what secrets does the Globe hold that he was also investigating?

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This time, I ran the original scenario Supped Full with Horrors, continuing one character from The Pirates of Candle Cove two years ago and two others from last year’s Elizabethan game The King of Shreds and Patches. We played on Sunday, June 25, 2017 but the recording was accidently turned off so his audio is cut into two parts. My players were Helen, Ambralyn, Kyle, Ashton, and Collin.
