  1. There's a great You Tube channel called Forgotten Weapons available for the Investigator with an eye on 'personal protection'. While it must be noted that many of the interesting ones were custom or rare, I couldn't help thinking that the ... er ... "well heeled" Investigator might consider the Lancaster Howdah pistols (dated from Victorian times for the military and big game hunter) to the U.S. Auto Bandits which available from the 20's up to the early '40s were, in effect, shop-bought sawn-off shotguns! Keepers should always limit because of their rarity and state and country legislation, but might give investigators an interesting option. Seems to me that existing combat/weapon rules could easily be applied.

  4. I'm writing the first part of a campaign, probably for the Repository, working with the Randolph Carter cycle. In the interest of efficiency I'm mainly discussing it at YS: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/topic/31797-the-silver-key-as-a-basis-for-a-scenario/ However, to summarize: The scenario is based out of the Cabot Museum/ "the Boston Detectives" mentioned in BtGoSK, and starts with an investigation of the disappearance of RC, funded by his friends. I've discovered the real world location of the Carter mansion (or at least the Snake Den) in the "rolling hills" between Salem and Arkham and a few snippets about the figure Lovecraft satirises as Ernest Aspinwall as well. As it turns out my Salem and Beverly ancestors lived in close proximity (I'm also closely related to the families that Lovecraft based all this on...). I'm gathering everything canon, semi-canon, and apocryphal on this subject together to winnow out problems. I have noted the DE Marigny write up by Kevin Ross in the recent New Orleans book from Golden Goblin, Penelope Love's Porphyry and Aspondel, and sourced a copy of "The Lord of Illusion". It remains to be seen whether I can sew in The Silver Twilight or The Chapel of Contemplation into the narrative. Eventually there will be time travel via astral projection, dreaming, and perhaps some jaunts to London or Persia involved. One key part of my plans is using the technique pioneered in Trail of Cthulhu where the NPCs have multiple possible motivations so each time its run it's unpredictable. Carter (or one of many Carters) might be an unreliable narrator and villain in one version, while in another De Marigny went more than a little mad in WWI. Ward Phillips (i.e., Lovecraft) could be a strange but decent man in one running while in others he's a cantankerous racist, or he's the catspaw of a terrible entity from his own dreams...

    I'm still preparing to start my new group of players on 1920s Call of Cthulhu. I'm acquiring figures, mostly 25mm but of necessity getting a few in 28mm. <Damn figure creep and marketing guys> I don't care so much about having the exact monsters from Cthulhu, I can use anything. And my PCs and NPCs will look archaic enough to my young players that I don't need to be a stickler for getting the costumes exactly right. But, what else to dress the table with? Buildings are just too much, but think what I could do with cars! Car chases, dodging monsters, ambushes and roadblocks, hard cover in a gun fight, the list goes on. So I went to the local, established and gritty model shop in town. Where they make models, dammit! And the guy shook his head radiating disapproval, because I'd made a fundamental error. Cars in the scale I'm looking for "just weren't made." Nothing even close. What do you all use? Or am I the only one who wants to line up the adventurers on one side of a car, and have the monsters come slithering and hopping out of the brush on the other side of the road? I really don't want to take the time to actually build my own models, although I could if I get desperate enough. Save me from hot glue, you're my only hope!
