  1. The summer 2022 Call of Cthulhu RPG Writer Workshop bundle just came out, featuring scenarios from new community writers that took the Storytelling Collective’s writing course (myself included). 24 scenarios for $28.49, 70% off their individual prices! From slasher summer camps and Viking raiders, to pioneer miners and Romanian folk horror, there’s plenty of variety to fill in dozens of CoC sessions. Grab it on DriveThruRPG here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/m/product/406986?affiliate_id=3534349
  2. Came across this podcast that I got hyped for. They just released the first episode and the hype was worth it. It features a few comedians and people from Fangoria. The first episode is not "spooky," but they are saying it will be a slow burn. Again, highly recommend! https://www.aintslayednobody.com/episodes/episode-1-an-occurrence-at-canutillo-bridge
  3. Ok here's the basic setup for the DDT campaign I am working on. (Inspired by my favorite HPL story "Rats in the Walls".) The large extended Delapore family after the burning of Carfax was ruined, having most of their wealth, their livestock and horses taken by Sherman's troops and their plantation burned. A few of them went North, but the proudest of them stayed in their beloved and ruined homeland, Virginia. Being a very close family they banded together, scraped what little of their fortune was left and for a few years (10) tried to put things back in order. But their spirits were broken and it wasn't going well. So, the surviving Patriarch (Uncle Theobald) divined that heading West and starting anew would mend their broken hearts and fortunes. So the clan gathered what they could spare and sent their best and brightest West. John Delapore (Civil War vet 4th Cavalry) and his nephew Ethan have bought a track of land and set up a horse and cattle ranch in the campaign setting of San Rafael. Word has been sent back....Kinfolk, Head West, Come on Home. All the investigators will either be Delapore's, friends or employees of them. So friends, comrades and other kinfolk can come in and out of the setting with ease. The Delapore's have a dark unknown past. A past which draws them to the arcane and mythos. Uncle Theobald is an occult scholar, a dowser and an author. His wife, Aunt Agnes is a medium and fortune teller. The San Rafael area is of course (spoiler) a hotbed of occult and spiritual activity. This will be the jumping off point for many Mythos adventures. Some of the adventures will be encountered directly in the area, others will be a group sent off to do research for Uncle Theobald's master work. The title...ARCANA AMERICANA. Having the Delapore Ranch as a hub will give me the ability to launch many awesome adventures without having to hamfistedly do the 'You all meet in the Old Saloon' trope. So the beginning adventures will be those left back in Virginia packing up what little they have left and what occurs on the way to their new home. All they have left is their large library, what little precious family heirlooms that weren't burned or looted, their pride and of course their many beloved house cats. So what do you think??

  7. I am starting a DDT campaign. Using the Pawheton mining camp town as a start. I also bought Metacreator to help in NPC creating and game running. My group is total CoC newbies, which is gonna be cool. I will be using the initial stuff from DDT, but adding in a Yig/Snakeman story, still working on it. Is anybody out else running DDT? Any suggestions on adventures to adapt or computer resources to use besides Metacreator? I have a bunch of minis from Deadlands and Shadows of Brimstone and FFGs Mansions of Madness to use, plus RPGNOW has great paper old west buildings. I will eventually lead the group into the Bone Wars, but with a CoC twist. I was hoping that there would be a subgroup here for DDT. Is there an interest in starting subgroup or one in place already (that I can't find) dealing with the old west CoC?

  9. Howdy 7th Edition Amigos y Amigas! I’ve just received a “telegram” from a Mr. Lee Carnell, proprietor of The Dhole’s House, informing me that there is an update to the character generator that let’s you create Old West characters. Details below: https://www.dholeshouse.org/ The Dhole's House - Keeper and Player Support for Call of Cthulhu “Choose the 'Old West' option when creating a new 7th ed for Investigator and then carry on as you would normally. You can also create a DDT Pulp Hero via the Pulp Hero creation system.” Note that there is currently a dearth of Old West period specific portraits, which he is working on. Please share and feel free to send your thanks below to help support his tremendously helpful site. https://www.dholeshouse.org/Support

  14. Poker Alice broke the bank at the Gold Dust Gambling House in Silver City, winning $6,000. Later, in Deadwood, South Dakota, she grew to be a local legend... One of her sayings was, “Praise the Lord and place your bets. I’ll take your money with no regrets.” https://www.chaosium.com/blog/poker-alice-another-real-historical-character-you-might-meet-down-darker-trails
