Role Playing Journals

Recommended Posts

January 1603. Still investigating the seemingly unconnected deaths of playwright John Croft and a young girl visiting London from Amsterdam, the investigators have uncovered clues leading to a plot to murder William Shakespeare as well as connections between the two earlier deaths. Can they protect Shakespeare? How are the deaths connected with the fragments of a play by Christopher Marlowe called "The King in Yellowe" and Hastur? What is Dr. John Dee's connection? Who is Joseph Barker?

 

On June 5, I ran the conclusion of the scenario "The King of Shreds and Patches" with my group.

 

The roleplaying journal for the session is here:

In April 1667, the pirate frigate Sweet Vengeance set sail in search of a supposed Spanish treasure ship leaving Porto Bello.  What they found instead was a lost island and a terrible ruined city.  Would the officers and crew of the ship survive seeking Forbidden Cargo?

The zombie apocalypse game entitled "Deadworld" continues with the seventh session.

 

Two groups of survivors, all following Skadooter's roadside messages, find each other and make their way through the wilds of North Carolina, heading for the beach.  A small group of survivors in the town of Wickwold say they are "protected" from the undead.  Will our survivors find out how - or just continue on their way?

When a man is mauled, his arm ripped off, and a woman goes missing near the North Star Amusement Arcade and Pleasure Pier between Providence and Pawtucket, it proves of interest to those who investigate the strange.  The investigators get together to see if there is something going on at the carnival.

 

On January 22, 2017, I began Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians.  This was part of the regular campaign, taking place in May 1928.

Having failed to find more than strangeness at the North Star Amusement Arcade and Pleasure Pier, our intrepid investigators began to look through Swan Point Cemetery in the hopes it will lead them to the kidnapped child and woman.  They soon find more than they bargained for.

Once more into the breech!  After some planning, some of the investigators head back to the North Star Amusement Arcade and Pleasure Pier, determined to uncover the secrets of the place and put an end to the terrible things happening there.  What they find beneath the carnival, again, is not pleasant.

 

On February 12, 2017, I ran the fourth session of Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians as part of the regular Providence, R.I. campaign taking place in 1928.

With proof of the carnival's misdeeds, Providence Police could finally orchestrate a raid to remove the criminal elements of the place. Allied with the Providence County Sheriff's Department, Pawtucket Police, and the Rhode Island State Police, a daring raid was set for the early morning hours of the very next day.  Several of the investigators who had helped save the two kidnap victims were brought along to advise police, but a force of over 100 men was set to raid the carnival and bring it down.

 

On February 26, 2017, I ran the sixth and final session of Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians as part of the regular Providence, R.I. campaign taking place in 1928.  Each of the players rolled up an additional Providence Police Officer, Pawtucket Police Officer, and Providence County Sheriff's Deputy to use for the raid.

On June 23, 2017, a massive evacuation of the eastern seaboard of the United States created a great deal of havoc as some kind of toxic substance was released, allegedly by the Russians, that caused people to sicken and then die, then rise from the dead and try to kill and eat the living.  This is the story of how a few civilians in Boone, N.C., managed to escape that terrible day.

 

On March 5, 2017, my friend Kyle Matheson ran a modern day Basic Roleplaying System game for our regular Deadworld session.  He ran this as a one-shot but we may return to Kyle's Deadworld campaign in the future.

It's been about a month since the terrible events of the Dark Carnival in Providence, R.I., when Miss Edington gets a visit from a pharmacist trying to sell her a very strange bottle of red wine. 

 

On March 26, I ran a short scenario for my regular Call of Cthulhu group as part of my regular Providence campaign taking place in 1928.  This time it was Circle of Friends from the Minions book.
