Call of Cthulhu BRP
First Session: Wednesday -- November 16th, 2011 -- 7:00 PM
Approx. Length: Description:
"Come empty the contents of your stomach." Call of Cthulhu is a detective story/horror roleplaying game based upon the writings of Howard Phillips Lovecraft and a few others. Lovecraft wrote during the 1920s and 1930s, and he became a cult figure before dying in 1937. His fiction ranges from pure science fiction to gothic horror. He was published frequently in a pulp magazine called "Weird Tales" which also published Robert E. Howard's Conan stories, and Robert Bloch and many others. (That's what kids of the 1920's and 1930's did, was read pulp magazines)
Young writers from around the world have contributed to or independently written well over a hundred new books of scenarios and other supplements for the Call of Cthulhu RPG since it was first published in 1981. It is the highest rated RPG of all time according to rpggeek.com
Here is an example of how the game plays.
Example of Play
Will you be scared while playing? probably not. It is "Horror" in the sense that it involves death and the supernatural. You play detectives and you will have to solve mysteries, uncover disturbing things, and witness atrocities, that have a good chance of leaving long lasting impressions on you.
If you want to run a CoC adventure here is a list of some of the best scenarios, most are 5 hours in length. List compiled from multiple online forums and sources. List of Best
I can get any of these to you as a pdf, just ask!

| Dec 4, 2011 11:08 PM || - James L:|| Deirdre, Dan: either of you read or play through "The Crack'd and Crook'd Manse"? which was in the "Mansions of Madness" CoC compilation of adventures? It looks really cool to run. (Note: it has nothing to do with the Mansions of Madness boardgame.)|
| Nov 24, 2011 11:59 PM || - Deirdre:|| Yay for voting!|
| Nov 17, 2011 9:36 AM || - James L:|| Voting comes up exactly 7 days after start of the event. Thanks for running. I think I even dreamed about the desert last night, and my stomach.|
| Nov 17, 2011 9:09 AM || - Deirdre:|| @JamesL: I've never run a campaign game before. Does voting come up automatically?|
@CaptDan: I'd love to actually play in a game! I've only ever run before if you can believe it. :)
| Nov 17, 2011 1:38 AM || - John:|| Agreed on all counts.|
| Nov 17, 2011 1:28 AM || - Chen:|| Deidre thank you for running. Everyone I had a good time and wish to play with you again in the future.|
| Nov 17, 2011 12:36 AM || - Capt_Dan:|| Deidre, thanks for running, it was a blast to play this again! I would certainly be interested in playing again, and could easily be tempted into running a few sessions myself as well.|
| Nov 17, 2011 12:19 AM || - Deirdre:|| I hope everyone had fun playing! I sure enjoyed running and I hope everyone comes back for more CoC in the future!|
| Nov 16, 2011 12:22 AM || - Deirdre:|| The fewer players the better...Muhuhahaha|
| Nov 15, 2011 5:05 PM || - James L:|| ah perfect, John joined|
| Nov 15, 2011 5:03 PM || - James L:|| 3 players is still a perfectly good CoC game right?|
| Nov 15, 2011 4:20 PM || - Capt_Dan:|| The Sanity mechanism is by far the best part of this...|
| Nov 15, 2011 2:18 PM || - Jensen:|| Wobs on Wednesdays|
| Nov 15, 2011 2:07 PM || - Tracy:|| I totally have WOBS tonight so I can't make it, besides I'm still not feeling well and you don't want my germy hands on things...most likely neither will the WOBS guys.|
| Nov 15, 2011 2:01 PM || - Vlad:|| Sorry Deirdre & co, I have to bail out. Got word that because of a new project at work, we're going to be pulling heavy hours till late evenings for the next couple of weeks. |
| Nov 15, 2011 9:27 AM || - James L:|| looking forward to dying, or at least going insane|
| Nov 14, 2011 9:54 PM || - Deirdre:|| We'll be playing at Au bon Gout. If you've never been head to the back and up the stairs. If you like bring two different colors of d10's or percentile dice. I'll have plenty of extras, though so no worries.|
| Nov 10, 2011 10:11 PM || - Chen:|| I'm a relatively new player, look forward to this event!|
| Nov 8, 2011 12:17 AM || - Deirdre:|| This adventure is suitable for new players. It's a good intro to the possibilities of CoC.|
| Nov 8, 2011 12:09 AM || - Matt:|| Never played before as well, relatively new to roleplaying in general. Hope that's cool. This seems pretty sick.|
| Nov 5, 2011 10:45 PM || - Capt_Dan:|| Used to play all the time when I was a teen. I always loved the inevitably dwindling sanity stat...|
| Nov 5, 2011 10:33 PM || - Jensen:|| looks like an awesome game, I cant make this one (regular campaign meeting) but will be looking forward to the next Call game when it pops up|
| Nov 5, 2011 4:18 PM || - Vlad:|| Would be my first time|
| Nov 4, 2011 11:24 PM || - Tracy:|| I have never played before. And I am very excited...maybe too excited...|
| Nov 4, 2011 5:07 PM || - Deirdre:|| Also, let me know if you've played CoC before. |
| Oct 29, 2011 12:14 PM || - Deirdre:|| Whoops, sorry about that. You should be able to commit to the game now! :)|
| Oct 28, 2011 3:11 PM || - Jarrid R:|| I was wondering if I could still get in?|
| Oct 27, 2011 5:16 PM || - Deirdre:|| Oh and P.S. Y'all can play this with as little as two PC's. Just in case you were wondering...|
| Oct 25, 2011 11:43 AM || - Vlad:|| Still works for me|
| Oct 25, 2011 11:08 AM || - Capt_Dan:|| Still good|
| Oct 25, 2011 11:07 AM || - Deirdre:|| Okay, I changed the date. Those interested keep me updated on your availability.|
| Oct 24, 2011 10:11 AM || - Jensen:|| I could play the week after if that works for everyone. really want to try this out|
| Oct 23, 2011 6:50 PM || - Jarrid R:|| This sounds too dope for words|
| Oct 21, 2011 10:15 PM || - Vlad:|| Oo, I could put my Cthulhu dice to a good use|
| Oct 21, 2011 9:53 PM || - Capt_Dan:|| Bsgsy the arrogant and oblivious German |
officer! "Nein! Dieses ist nicht genug gut! Dummköpfe!"
| Oct 21, 2011 9:00 PM || - Deirdre:|| This is a tournament adventure that can be run in one shot or stretched over two sessions. I can supply pregens or players can roll characters the day of the event (though I recommend the players represent different archetypes like someone plays a Medic, Sniper, Radio Operator, etc.) |
I'm flexible (within reason) on dates and times.
| Oct 21, 2011 8:56 PM || - Deirdre:|| The Colony|
A Call of Cthulhu/Delta Green hybrid module
Libyan Desert: May 1941. Players are members of the German Third Reich. The mission is simple: stand watch and wait for reinforcements at the discovered site of foreboding ancient ruins. What could go wrong?
It’s not a spoiler to say this mission poses almost certain doom for the players. Be prepared for probable mayhem, madness, and destruction.
