It’s all or nothing in this single-session adventure.

Call of Cthulhu – The King of Shreds and Patches Session Two

Learning of a threat to William Shakespeare’s life, the men who had been investigating the strange events in London in the winter of 1603 delve ever deeper into the terrors that are plaguing that fair city. They soon find they are not dealing with just one man but an entire cult. Consulting with Dr. John Dee helps them somewhat, but they might be the only thing that stands in the way of Hastur being summoned into the city.

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This summer, I ran The King of Shreds and Patches by Justin Hynes from Strange Aeons, continuing one character from last summer’s The Pirates of Candle Cove game. We played the second session on Sunday, June 5, 2016. My players were Kyle, Katie, James, and Collin.

Call of Cthulhu – The King of Shreds and Patches Session One

In the winter of the year 1603, the plague is stalking London with a vengeance. When a playwright friend of the former actor Vincent Hawksworth turns up dead and the friend of the love of Octavian Skern asks him to look for a friend, the two incidents seem related. A great conspiracy is afoot and only an actor, a printer, a criminal, a doctor, and a banker are willing to try to stop it.

Over the summer, I usually run scenarios for Call of Cthulhu in different time periods and this summer proved no exception. This summer, I ran The King of Shreds and Patches by Justin Hynes from Strange Aeons, continuing one character from last summer’s The Pirates of Candle Cove game. We played this first session on Sunday, May 22, 2016. My players were Kyle, Katie, James, Ashton, and Collin.

Call of Cthulhu – Terror Over Tokyo 2: The Fog Village

I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at NerdCon 2016 at Appalachian State University. “Terror Over Tokyo 2: The Fog Vilalge” took place during the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in April 1942. The B-25 Bomber that is part of the raid crashes in China and ends up in a terrible place. My players were Bret, Michael, Z, Alex, and Ebenezer.

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons – The Keep on the Borderlands

Several adventurers arrive at the Keep on the Borderlands and soon venture into the Caves of Chaos. Will they survive?

On April 10, 2016, I ran a 2nd Edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons one-shot at the Appalachian State University Game Club LAN Party. “The Keep on the Borderlands” is the first scenario I ever owned and so five adventures went to the keep in search of the Caves of Chaos. My players were Quentin, Ashton, Katelyn, Daniel, and Mike.

Call of Cthulhu – Night Witches: The Sosnovka Raid

On Dec. 5, 1942, a section of three light bombers from the Soviet 588th Night Bomber Regiment, a regiment consisting solely of women, are sent to bomb a supply depot in the German-held Russian town of Sosnovka. The six women in three planes head out, but will not be the same afterwards.

On Feb. 27, 2016, I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at the Appalachian State University Game Club Game Fest and LAN Party. “Night Witches: The Sosnovka Raid” tells of the daring female soldiers of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment who go to bomb a tiny village on their nightly runs and find something else there as well. My players were Katelyn, Mike, Quinten, Connor, Alex, and Ashton.
