The Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails Catastrophe Engine Campaign continues.

 

Jack West has not been seen for a while.  It's time to catch up with what has been happening with him.

 

On January 8, I ran a one-on-one game with James Brown, who has not been available to game for a few months.  This interlude catches his character, Jack West, up with the others.

 

The role playing journal of the game session is here:

Taking a break from the terrors they've seen, the investigators are invited by Dr. Eva Weisswald to Wheeling, West Virginia, for Christmas.  However, there is an ulterior motive, as her nephew, Albert, has been hanging out with a bad crowd and she's been asked to come set him straight.

 

On January 20, the campaign continued with the original scenario "A Very Weisswald Christmas."

On June 7, 1917, the British Army pushed into Messines to take it from the Germans.   A group of eight men in a British Mark IV tank of the Heavy Branch Machine Gun Corps took part in that battle, but saw and dealt with something terrible they had never expected to see: The Colossus of Messines.

On March 30, 2019, I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario for NerdCon 2019 at Appalachian State University. "The Colossus of Messines" saw the six players running soldiers who were the crew of a Mark IV tank during the Battle of Messines.
