Call of Cthulhu – Down Darker Trails 4 – Terror on the Sequoyah Star

The Cresent is being transported north from Los Angeles to San Francisco via train: the Sequoyah Star.  The investigators are tagging along to both try to keep an eye on it and in the hopes of possibly dealing with it in some way.  Professor Terwilliger is also aboard the train, but things eventually take a turn for the worse.

On March 11, 2018, the Down Darker Trails campaign, taking place in the American West, continued with the scenario “Terror on the Sequoyah Star” based on the Aces & Eights scenario “Trouble on the Sequoyah Star” by Jolly Blackburn.  Players were James, Ashton, Collin, Yorie, Kyle, Austin, John, Katie, Ben, and Ambralyn.

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.

Having investigated Nyarlathotep, one of the investigators thinks he has a lead: a man in the Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, something happens on the way there.
