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.

Glad I could help. :D Tom has always been one of my favorite characters in the book. It is a shame he never made it into the movies. I need to fully read through the books my self, last time I only made it through the battle of Helm's Deep. Hope you enjoy your read through. :)
