Fear Itself: Invasive Procedures episode 1

The doctor will see you now :DI picked up the scenario Invasive Procedures at Gencon this year and I ran it for some of the RPPR crew as a 3 part game. I’ve decided to post the games as a build up to Halloween. I think you’ll enjoy these episodes. From the scenario’s introduction:

The kids all say Our Lady’s Hospital is haunted. You can see why, when you look at it, that big gloomy pile of staring windows and rusting beds. They should have torn the place down years ago, instead of letting it linger on like this. I’d hate to be a patient there. They send you there to die.

You are a patient in an old, rambling hospital. Part of it is shut down, part of it lies in decay. The equipment is out of date, the staff are unmotivated and the whole place reeks of disinfectant, death and seventy years of despair. The hospital has ghosts and spirits walking the halls but they are the least of your worries. You should be afraid of what comes out at night. You should be afraid of what makes the ghosts flee.”

  1. so, in other words, this happens at your average US hospital?

  2. One word for horrors from Canada… Ithaqua. Just saying lol

  3. And the weremoose, they have a nasty bite.

    I liked the door kicked open sound at the beginning.

  4. this session totally reminded me of a session of a small press rpg “The Whispering Vault”

  5. LOL this episode made me say “That’s f#$cking terrible!” 10 mins in, nicely done

  6. “Excuse me, I would like to register a formal complaint. I believe when I checked in, I had two of these.”

    There are multiple things the above statement could be referring to in this scenario.

  7. Man oh man this is some immersive horror roleplaying. I can’t wait to see where this game goes.

  8. Nice, nice, nice! Can’t wait for Ep.2!

  9. ugh too much hospital going on in my sphere right now

  10. Urg. Why is a new part of Fear Itself not up!!!

  11. Halloween is eight days away. Where’s episode two and three?

  12. Author

    Episode two and three will be posted together on Friday. On Halloween, Adam Scott Glancy’s Gencon 2012 Call of Cthulhu scenario will be posted.

  13. Well, I at least never doubted you Ross. Really! Waiting with bated breath and all that.


  14. Awesome sauce, looks like I might have to spend Halloween cleaning my house with earbuds in.

  15. Messed. Up. (bravo!)

  16. Its Friday!

  17. Great Stuff! Other then the monkey eating the chips when one of the players talking to the little girl…

  18. I havent played this game..but I love the fact that it actually has a skill called “Bullshit Detector”

  19. Love the show. Don’t know who was more crule, the night nurses of the cold hearted one in charge. lol. Thanks guys,reminds me of the old RPG-ing I did while in the Army.

  20. This is the first time one of these actual plays has actually terrified me, and I haven’t even finished this episode yet. I might not listen to the second, I’m not sure I could handle it.

  21. Goddamnit, is this jerk with the “eh it’s like” tic on every single actual play session? No offence to the lad but it really makes it unlistenable. I’d suggest he get some speech therapy and soon.

  22. This is an awesome scenario. I’ll be adapting it (with a friend) into a live action game later this year and getting to see how it builds through the AP is very helpful.

    Great place to leave off and I can’t wait for the next one. I’d save it for some time I’m working late in lab but I think it’d be too much… and I want to know what happens.

    I couldn’t hear what Beth said to Aaron’s character right before she (the character) had her freakout though. Anyone with sharper ears catch it?
