Hello everyone! I've been running CoC for a long time, mostly one shots or 2-3 session scenarios. Now I'd like to step up and run my first campaing. Although I love reading scenarios and doing all the prep work, my free time is limited, so I think it could be a good idea to pick up a long campaing, prepare and run it, instead of having to think what to run next, checking scenarios that I don't like and wasting time jumping from one to another until I find one that suits my taste (and my players' taste as well). With all that said, this is my starting point: - I have 2-3 players, I don't think I can get more than that (and I don't probably want to, because it's hard already to match agendas to schedule the gaming sessions) - I'd like it more on the classic investigation style and not so pulp, but some pulp won't hurt (I guess that leaves Two Headed Serpent behind, but maybe someone can convince me of the opposite) - I'd like it long, but not so long that could get boring at some point and risk the players or my commitment to it. My options could be: Masks, Horror on the Orient Express, Shadows of Yog-Sothoth (although not very sure because it doesn't link the scenarios very well and looks old fashioned to me), A Time to Harvest, 2 Headed Serpent (I know it's for Pulp Cthulhu, but, I'm open to read your comments and maybe change my mind), anything else to consider? So, if anyone can give me some advice on how to manage a campaing for just 2 players, tips, wich one to pick, alternatives... it will be much appreciated. Many thanks!

Howdy I'm picking up on a Savage Worlds powered Glorantha game I've been running sporadically (well, twice) and am coming to the end of the old school tour of Duke Raus' lands. So far we've had Agimori, Morskanth, Tusk Riders, Newtlings, animal Nomads, sneering Lunars etc. and the obvious next step is more widespread cult activity and / or Chaos. Specifically Broos. There are Trolls in the Big Rubble and someone needs to rub a Dragonnewt up the wrong way (so to speak). Are there any other big-hitters to get introduced do you think? If you were introducing new people to the setting what else would you bring to the party? What are the key showpieces that you would just have to show the players? We haven't got a five year campaign to burn through or unlimited attention span, so if you were running a game for new players what would you want to get across in say 1-3 sessions that were the really good bits of Glorantha*? * YGMV
