Role Playing Journals

In November 1971, a group of people boarded a Learjet bound for Kansas City, Missouri, for a seminar, having been sent by the company they worked for. Unfortunately, this was no simple flight, but a trip into the unknown that would leave all of them terrified of the Fear Jet.

 

On April 1, I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario for NerdCon 2017 at Appalachian State University.  The premise was a group of people who work together were taking a Learjet to a seminar when something interfered. 

 

The role-playing journals for the game session can be found here:

A couple of players had to leave during the game but were later replaced by two new people who came in so a couple of the characters ended up with two players.

 

Players were:

 

Alexander Lawson as Morty Finch (Clerk)

Alexander Rogers as Melvin Bell (Accountant)

Carl Cordini as Darryl Jefferson (Security Guard)

Bay Shuford as Anne Simmons (Switchboard Operator/Receptionist)

George Ekholm and Danielle Brown as Trevor Stevens (Middle Management Businessman)

Ambralyn Tucker and Drake Powell as Denise Thompson (Secretary)

Only a week or so after dealing with the strange events of the wine and the circle of friends, several people from Providence, R.I., have some chocolates given to them by their friend Robert Ramsden.  They find themselves transported to the Dreamlands ...

 

On April 9, I ran a Dreamlands game (for Call of Cthulhu) for my regular Providence campaign taking place in 1928.  This time we played "To Sleep, Perchance to Dream" and "Lemon Sails," two short scenarios from the Dreamlands book.

 

The role playing journals of the game session can be found here:

It's time for a return to Elizabethan (well, technically Jacobian) London and the Globe Theater.  This time, a stagehand has gone missing from the Globe and his wife demands someone find him.  A small group of stagehand, musician, and actor, along with a local physician and banker go in search of the errant Clancy Bottom, only to find themselves drawn into a strange plot that might see the destruction of the Globe itself, if not of all England.

 

The role playing journal for the original Elizabethan Call of Cthulhu scenario Supped Full with Horrors can be found here:
