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.
