Call of Cthulhu – Terror Over Tokyo 1.5: The Obake Shima Incident II Part 1

It is April 19, 1942, the day after the American attack on the island of Japan. In the turmoil following the attack, a squad of soldiers is quickly assembled to investigate the radio silence from the island of Obake Shima over the last three days and to re-garrison the island. Will any of them every be seen again?

On Oct. 11, 2015, I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at the Appalachian State University Game Club LAN Party. “Terror Over Tokyo 1.5: The Obake Shima Incident II” took place right after the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in April 1942, the players being Japanese soldiers. My players were Richard, Kit, Ashton, Goldie, Katelyn, Luke, Mike, Danny, Walker, and Alex.

Unfortunately, my audio recorder was not on for the beginning of the game so I ripped the audio from my video recordings and the quality is not very good. Part one of three.

Call of Cthulhu Providence Campaign 19 – Madness or Death: The Nickerbocker’s Tale Session Two

August of 1778 in Providence, R.I. The investigation of the possible loyalist Arthur Matchell continues. Unable to get easily into his house and his papers, the investigators must take a more unorthodox route.

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 19th session of the game took place on August 16, 2015, with the original scenario “Madness or Death: The Nickerbocker’s Tale.” While not technically with the Providence group, this interim game has connections with the campaign game that will soon be revealed. My players were David, Tabitha, Nissa, Kyle, Natasha, and Kaitlyn.

Call of Cthulhu Providence Campaign 18 – Madness or Death: The Nickerbocker’s Tale Session One

August of 1778 in Providence, R.I. The British have been dug in at nearby Newport since December of 1776. However the French began open support of the young country in February of this year. With their help, it should be possible to finally rid Rhode Island of the British. But other strange things are afoot. One local, Arthur Matchell, who lives just outside of Providence, is suspected of either being a Loyalist or aiding the British for some other reason. A committee was formed and several prominent men from Providence were asked to investigate Matchell and learn what his connection is with the British. If he is a Loyalist, he must be brought to justice.

Call of Cthulhu – Terror Over Tokyo: The Obake Shima Incident

I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at NerdCon 2015 at Appalachian State University. “Terror Over Tokyo: The Obake Shima Incident” took place during the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in April 1942. The B-25 Bomber that is part of the raid must make hard choices when one of the fuel tanks is punctured. My players were Teri, Toli, Carl, Walker, and Devin.

Call of Cthulhu – Leaflet Mission II

It was around 18:00 hours on Sunday, February 25, 1945, when the crew of the Big Money, a Boeing B-17 bomber with the 492nd Bomb Group, 406th Bomb Squadron Night Leaflet Squadron of the 8th Army Air Force, entered the mess hall at Cheddington Airfield in Buckinghamshire, England. It was unusual, to say the least, as the crew usually met with the crew of their sister ship, the Pretty Lady, in the Mail Briefing Room for pre-flight pre-briefings.

On March 29, 2014, at CaesarCon 2014, I ran the original Call of Cthulhu Scenario “Leaflet Mission II” to learn the fate of the sister ship to the Pretty Lady, the B-17 Bomber in Leaflet Mission. My players were with Scott, Adam, Terina, Natalie, Stephen, Chris, D.J., Lilly, Matt, and Josh. We had a full crew of 10 players for the 10 positions on the bomber.
