  1. Many thanks for all the answers and suggestions. I'll really bring this to the game table. Good idea to connect it more to the actual role-playing, which I like and also my players. My thought was first more like that what happens if the player just ignores the effect? You lose 18p of POW whatever. Overall, I find it exciting to use characteristics more in games (skills tend to take over most scrolls) and how they actually affect the role-playing of a character and the experience of the world in the game, also how NPCs experience the player. thanks again!
  2. Hi! I have a question, some magic have the effect of making players loosing POW. What happens when the investigator is loosing POW, what is the effect? Dread Curse of Azathoth for example, the investigator meets a cultist who is casting the spell, player rolls dice and looses 18 points of POW, should something more happen here? or is the investigator just continuing doing it's round like nothing happened. I told the player to make a CON/SAN roll to make sure he is still standing or? Loosing POW must feel like hell. I'm just curious how you people are game mastering this
  3. Looks very good, I think Chaosium should use this format for thinner, cheaper products like this one. Must say, however, that the new Dead Light and Alone against the frost are not as good at all, the reason for that I think is the choice of paper, and when choosing black and white, the images must have more contrast. Missed Dues and Blackwater creek that come with Keepers's screen pack is very good in quality, softcover but good paper and all the pictures work fine. And Chris Huth, his pictures in Gateway's To Terror are absolutely right.
  4. I have been waiting for this, an exciting release and I will wait some more until the book comes out on the shelves
  5. Thank you for your help, but to clarify if I understand this right, Sticky Jack started his hunt for all 3 items, late evening on Monday 17, went back to his apartment early morning Tuesday 18. And what about the handouts, paper clips? handout 2 is the only one with the right date? because if it is Wednesday 19th the robbery's did not take place last night? Sorry If i'm being confused, thanks again for your answers
  6. Hello, I have some thoghts on the printed version of Backwater creek and Missed Dues, keeper screen pack. First, I really like these two scenarios. I have run them both, thanks. But there are some things, in my copy at least, I think is wrong or have vague descriptions. Maybe someone already have remarked on this, then let me know. 1. On the cover "Missed Dues and Blackwater creek", but inside the order is not the same, this is a very minor thing but it is a little bit "sloppy" 2. On page 4 the introduction, chapter 5 tells you to have all the handouts in the Appendi
  7. Dodge starts with half dex, and you can increase dex through exp like any other skill. But can I raise my dodge during character creation, with adding personal interest skill points?
  8. Hello This may be a minor thing but I just want to check with you guys. The chase rules in the rulebook tells you to make a CON roll or Drive roll extreme suc = +1 reg suc = 0 fail = -1 On the keeper screen it tells you suc = +1 fail = -1 nothing about only extreme suc gives you +1 As I said nothing big only saying, because chaosium maybe wants to change it. Have a nice day R
  9. Ok first of all, yes this was my first post on this forum. However, I have been a member for almost 1 year. Second, no I did not intend to sabotage or upset anyone. Thirdly, I am a supporter of Chaosium and I love the game Call of Cthulhu, I do not think the pictures are ugly or I do not want to try so that books would not be produced etc. absolutely not. I feel I may not have been clear enough in my post. I do not mean that RPG books should not contain pictures and I am not against portraying monsters, in fact I like monsters (think most people do in this hobby) The only thing was th
  10. I'm not a big fan of illustrations of monsters, it's rarely good. It's a bit like when the monster is completely revealed in a horror movie. The tension and mysticism disappear, falling flat. In the horror genre, it is extra important to think about what is not shown. (maybe even more when it comes to a Lovecraftian monster) For some reason, the gaming world forgets this. Everything should be displayed, big weapons, big monsters, stereotypical faces, tentacles, etc. It results in very graphically packed books but it has a tendency to overflow and the price thereafter. I should be honest
