  • RPG Biography
    Few sessions of experience in CoC over the past few years as the player. Just recently started writing my own scenarios and hosted my first one with a friend new to tabletop games.
  • Current games
    CoC between 1920s and the modern era.

    Tried Eclipse Phase recently as well. Not CoC, but similar in cosmic horror qualities.

  4. Thanks for the added perspective. I'm less interested in publishing my scenarios, but wanted to do some writing on the side that other's could enjoy for free. Are there some other role-playing games or genres that are in greater need of free community-created content?
  5. This preempted my next question, "Does anyone give a f***?" Thanks :-)
  6. I agree with some of Darius West's points. I like the idea that each of the prisoners has committed something truly awful in order to make the list. For example, having their own siblings murdered for inheritance money, secretly killing a friend to steal their lover, impregnating their own daughter - Okay okay, maybe not that last one. There's a line somewhere there. The point is, having doubt as to who's side to be on could make for some interesting twists in the story.
  7. Thanks for the responses! I posted my scenario to The Chaos Library, now I'm curious... Who do I turn to for feedback? What's Chaosium's preferred way of being contacted if I want to make sure I'm not infringing on their copyright?

  10. That sounds like what I'm looking for! Or at least almost, the forum is password protected, but still doesn't bar me from hosting other copies elsewhere and providing them for free. I'll finish up my first draft in a day or two and look to submit it. Thanks!
  11. What's the best way to contribute free content to the community, get feedback, and maintain authorship? I'm new to this community, but have been playing CoC for a few years now, and enjoy writing for the Lovecraft universe. I was coming up short for advice on this topic in the forums so far. I've also asked a similar question on Yog-Sothoth. To be more specific, I'd like to contribute a scenario under a free license, probably the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International Creative Commons license. Secondly, I'd like to get feedback from the community on how to improve it, or even opportunities to run it a couple of more times with other members (newbies and veterans alike). I have one that is nearing completion and am aiming to write two more. Where would I share the scenario? It's currently a Google Doc of 30+ pages. Should I put up a personal website and host it there, put it in a public drop box, or just share the google doc? What about using spells or monsters from Chaosium's rulebook? Should I got to Chaosium for permission to use those or just reference the original work? What's considered fair use? That's already a lot and I have more questions, but I wanted to start somewhere. Thanks!
