    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. On October 29, I ran the call of Cthulhu scenario "Halloween in Dunwich" by Oscar Rios from the Halloween Horror Monograph as a Halloween one-shot.

    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.

    When a lawyer in Bristol, Connecticut, asks a small group of people to investigate a house in Sandisfield, Massashusetts, assessing the valuables there, it seems like an easy way to make some money. But there is something more to this case of declaring a man legally dead. Something is terribly wrong at this house. On September 17, I ran a small group of mixed regular players and new players in my first 7th Edition game of Call of Cthulhu. The 1920s game (and possible short campaign) started with the scenario "The Inheritance" from the monograph Horror Stories from the Red Room.
