Role Playing Journals

In June of 1004 A.D., the small group brought the lost Brother Drake back to life, though the man fled from the priory in Murkwell where he was resurrected. As the others go in search of their companion, something comes out of the forest to demand payment.

On May 22, I ran another online game of Call of Cthulhu, this time Cthulhu Dark Ages, as we learn what happens when the Tick Tock Man comes to Murkwell.

The roleplaying journal of the scenario is here:

In the spring of 1877, three men arrived in the village of Saltmarsh in Washington Territory. Each of them had goals and aspirations of their own, but they would soon be thrown together by the strange events that surrounded that isolated town on the Pacific coast. Soon, others joined them.

On May 25, we continued the Down Darker Trails campaign online, tentatively named Pacific Northwest Fears. We're starting off using the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons scenario "The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh" as well as the D&D campaign "Ghosts of Saltmarsh" adapted to Call of Cthulhu in the American west.

This session saw the investigators spend a few rainy days in Saltmarsh, meeting new people and hearing some of the strange rumors prevalent in the town.

The roleplaying game journal of the session is here:

Players are:

James Brown as William Hazard (dilettante)
Yorie Latimer as Hugh Pierre Luckheart aka Jack Justice (greenhorn)
Aaron Frager as James Jones Jr. aka Tex (teamster)
Sean McPike as Loren Hutton (journalist/author)

On June 6, I ran another online game of Call of Cthulhu, this time Cthulhu Dark Ages, as we learn what happens when mortals bargain with the Tick Tock Man.

This session saw the investigators return to explore the haunted house once again, getting the lay of the land, and make plans for their mission to deal with the smugglers' ship on the next new moon, only a few days away.

This session saw the investigators and two excise men from town assault the smugglers ship.

Unfortunately, OBS changed its audios settings for some reason.  As I had no audio of the game session, this entry is merely a summary of what happened to the best of my recollection

In the late summer of 1004 A.D., the small group travels to Canterbury on their way back to the Gloaming Thicket.  While they are in that city, secrets are revealed about various members of the party and a traitor is caught.

On July 17, I ran another online game of Call of Cthulhu, this time Cthulhu Dark Ages, as the investigators find that agents within the church might be working against them.  Or are they working against the church?

In the late summer of 1004 A.D., the small group flees from Canterbury, fearful of pursuit by the church.  They head into the wilderness, but return to Gloaming Thicket to try to end the evil they know lies there.

On August 7, I ran another online game of Call of Cthulhu, this time Cthulhu Dark Ages, as the investigators flee their duties to the church, retrieve the documents, and return to Gloaming Thicket.
