Call of Cthulhu Campaign (High Point, NC) – Restless Dreams Part 1

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 third session starts the beginning of the original scenario “Restless Dreams,” my adaption of Silent Hill II to Call of Cthulhu. The session saw them start to follow their leads to Silent Hill, head for Maine, and do some research.

This game took place on March 28, 2012. My players were Jeff, Ken, Steve, and Erik.

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.

Call of Cthulhu – The Curse of Dudleytown

Six people traveled to Dudleytown, Connecticut, from Cornwall on Monday, Sept. 16, 1811. All of them had their own reasons for traveling to the tiny village near Cornwall Bridge. They had no idea that the curse of the town would strike them, endangering all of their lives.

On March 30, 2014, at CaesarCon 2014, I ran the original Call of Cthulhu scenario “The Curse of Dudleytown” to explore the legendary curse on that tiny hamlet. My players were Josh, Xavier, Steve, Scott, Natalie, and Laura.
