  1. I'd forgotten about The Running Death. I thought I had a copy of the pdf somewhere but can't figure out what I did with it. I'll be referring to Aces & Eights a bit and plan to use the train maps for Trouble on the Sequoya Star at some point. I own all of the supplements as I spent several Origins and Gen Cons working the Kenzerco booth.
  2. Excellent. I'm stilling looking for more scenarios. Thank you.
  3. Thanks. Adios A-Migo is actually an old Deadlands dime novel scenario. I should have been more specific. It's here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/16599/Deadlands-Dime-Novel-Adios-AMiGo?it=1 I've got to sit down and figure out where to start. I think I'm going to start my own campaign in 1870 as it's close enough to the Civil War that investigators can have the choice of having fought in that conflict. Otherwise ... I've got nothing so far. I will, though.
  4. I plan to run a Down Darker Trails campaign starting sometime in January. I've been collecting old west/wild west scenarios and such for some time as I usually run different settings during the summer (it's been limited to Dark Ages, Elizabethan, Jacobean (Pirates), and American Revolution to date) and wanted to run some old west ever since I got Worlds of Cthulhu #2 with rules for making up such characters. I don't have a plan or a campaign planned out yet, though I've been watching The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. for some kind of inspiration and love the over-arcing "Orb" storyline, though I figure it would be cool if the orb were some kind of information/energy device crafted by the Yithians. Still working on that idea. Here are some other Wild West scenarios I've found though: Worlds of Cthulhu #2: Call of Cthulhu in the Wild West and The Hunt for Kid Richter Worlds of Cthulhu #3: The Golden Scorpion Worlds of Cthulhu #6: Sunset at Sandy Gulch Dragon Magazine #46: This Here's Tyrannosaurus Tex (ideas for dinosaurs) Blood Brothers 2: The Evil Gun Night of the Kachina monograph containing three scenarios Adios-A-Migo Sundown (online scenario) Horror on Two Forks Trail (online scenario) If you're looking for interesting maps (and nice mini-games for running trials and a few other things) Aces & Eights has both.

    After a little more exploring in the Sunless Citadel, the adventurers return to Oakhurst to find another party of adventurers there. What could this mean for our heroes?

    Great Grandpa Silas has the best Halloween parties and the Lovecraft Country Cousins all enjoy them more than anything. But something goes terribly wrong during the party in 1928 and it's up to the children to save their parents and grandparents before the night is through.

    When the small film company Tenebris Studio decides to send some actors, the director, and a producer to do location shots in Houston, Texas, they're able to book a Learjet fairly cheaply.

    Dealing with kobolds and goblins, each in their own way, is tricky. Of course, talking to the kobolds while murdering the goblins SEEMS to be working.
