  1. Hi all ... A buddy and me are contemplating running Pagan Publishing's 'Grace Under Pressure' at Gary Con XII next March, and I was hoping to get some feedback from members of the community that may have ran this at a Con before. Looking for suggestions, pitfalls, and general advice for doing this. I'm planning on running it with 7th Edition, and we've already updated all the pre-gen PC's and have made notes on the various system related aspects of the scenario to bring it up to 7th Edition parameters. As an aside ... When I attended Gary Con last year, I noticed there were several Official CoC events that took place in private suites as opposed to the general gaming area in the Forum area (those of you that have attended GC should know what I referring to) ... I was wondering if anyone knows how those private suite games were able to reserve those suites for running the games? It would greatly enhance the experience if I were able to have such a space to run GuP, as opposed to a large, loud, brightly lit area such as the forum. Thanks
  2. This should be placed under the "I. Classic Call of Cthulhu and its near-variants:" section under "Call of Cthulhu" H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands - Set in H.P Lovecraft's Dreamlands, where investigators travel down the seven hundred steps, through the Gates of Deeper Slumber, and into the realm of dreams. Essential Rulebook(s): H.P. Lovecraft's Dreamlands

    I seem to recall Rick Meints mentioning at some point that Credo was slated for a reboot. Any word/news on this oh Chaosium intelligentsia? One of my favorite Chaosium games ever ... heck, one of my favorite card/boardgames ever.
  5. Not precisely what you'd been looking for (as I see this post/request is a few months old now ... but ...) ... Are you aware of this wonderful book ... https://www.chaosium.com/mysteries-of-the-raj-pdf/
  6. I'm very impressed so far ... 'Down DarkerTrails' coupled with 'Devil's Gulch' and the two BRP 'Aces High' books gives me a huge CoC Old West toolbox to terrorize my players with ... Can't wait for the two follow-up releases!
  7. https://www.chaosium.com/down-darker-trails-pdf/ I've known about this for a long time, and now it's finally arrived. ... and I absolutely love it! ... Another stellar Kevin Ross CoC product.
  8. Thanks for clearing that up for me Folks! ... Perhaps when Rick and Co. re-laid out the supplements for inclusion in the B&B book they could have added an editorial note stating that "Yes!, there should be tables here, but we have not included them due to redundancy". Or, better yet, simply removed the instructional text that alluded to the tables from the original 'Plunder' book. Oh well. Sorry for the confusion .. and Thanks.
  9. Thanks for the reply. But ... it looks like the table for Treasure Factors in the RQII rulebook is a straight %roll table, whereas the procedure described in the Intro to the 'Plunder' section of the B&B book mentions rolling d8's and cross-referencing on different tables. I do not have a copy of the original 'Plunder' supplement, but I seem to recall (from looking through that book ages ago) that the first half of the book were these tables I'm looking for, and are described in the B&B 'Plunder' section introduction. These tables seem to have not been included in the reprint.
  10. Looking through the 'Borderlands & Beyond' compilation and reading the Introduction to the 'Plunder' section, there is mention of and directions for generating random treasure based on Treasure Factors. That section mentions generating this treasure on Treasure Factor tables. Where are these tables? Sorry if this is a newb question, but I've scoured the book and can cannot find the tables. Thanks for any insight.
  11. The fine folks over at CthulhuReborn have even put together a MoN Autocalc record sheet ... it's been over there for a few months already ... for those of you who haven't grabbed it yet, follow the link. https://cthulhureborn.wordpress.com/2016/01/01/welcome-to-a-new-year-of-horrors/

  13. For a "lighter" take on 70's era horror, than mentioned above ... I'd watch some old "Kolchak-The Night Stalker" episodes ... very 70's, and you can't get much more CoC than a reporter (i.e: investigator) for a small news agency seeking "the Truth" and facing (sometimes cheesy) monstrous entities. I loves me some Carl Kolchak.
