Well - two more sessions down and we've tackled The Edge Of Darkness (the old classic, as included in the new Starter Set). My three investigators fleshed out the backstories before we before this one began. We learned a bit more who Luke Chan (widowed), Rupert Knuckles (cook) and Heath (socialite) were. Again my players through themselves into this really well. Some gentle nudging of questions ("Who's back home?" "Are you married?" "Who do you care about?") and they were becoming more human characters that emerged. Into the scenario itself - the three investigators were asked t

I decided CoC would be my weapon of choice, having played it waaay back (and I don't really like Orcs, Goblins, etc). My group are not previously role players at all - but are keen boardgames (preferring quite heavy eurogames), so I knew this would be a little out of their comfort zone. I rpg'd years ago regularly, but haven't played for ages - b
