Call of Cthulhu: Prototype – A town called Hope

An investigative team for a basic cable TV show look into rumors of a government experiment gone awry and uncover a massive conspiracy that threatens the fate of the world. Oh and Jason’s character throws a rock. This game of Call of Cthulhu merges Delta Green (co-written by Dennis Detwiller) with the hit video game Prototype (also co-designed by Dennis Detwiller).

World of Darkness: Candle Cove

Candle Cove by Ean Moody Candle Cove was a kid’s show in the early 70s that many remember seeing but no one has ever found proof it ever existed. Until now. Three friends find a tape that supposedly contains an episode of the show. Soon after they play the tape, a strange man appears at their doorstep and the three mortals find themselves in a desperate struggle between a dangerous cult and a being beyond comprehension, known only as the ‘Skin Taker’. Enjoy this double length AP as our way of sayings thanks for making the Codex of War ransom!

Special thanks to Ean Moody for the art!

Call of Cthulhu: Delta Green – Operation Obsidian at Fear the Con 3

In this investigator’s opinion, COL Wade’s motive for launching OPERATION OBSIDIAN was his obsessive need for revenge. This investigator now believes that COL Wade was more deeply affected by his previous experience at Angka Watt temple complex ruins during OPERATION GLASS SLIPPER than his post-mission psychological examination revealed. OPERATION GLASS SLIPPER was successful, insomuch as the entity known as the Black Buddha was detached from this dimensional reference, but it was not killed. CAPT Wade’s responses to Dr. Roth indicated he believed that the entity would have been eliminated if the team had access to sufficient firepower. It is this investigator’s belief that OPERATION OBSIDIAN was COL Wade’s attempt to test that theory. Unfortunately, Wade’s methods were…unsound.

This scenario is based on notes from Adam Scott Glancy of Pagan Publishing.

This game was run at Fear the Con, so thanks to the crew at Fear the Boot for inviting us!

World of Darkness: The Arcadia Signal

google Beksiński The town of Arcadia has a unique boogeyman, the Signal. Since 1947, a weird voice can be heard only at a certain house, currently owned by Winslow. The voice claims to be an alien and seems almost omniscient. It is written off as a trick, a type of stage magic. A few months ago, one teenager killed two of his friends then himself in Arcadia. It was officially blamed on drugs. However, the teens had recently visited the House and listened to the Signal. This attracted the attention of the Paranormal Exploration Society, a group of amateur ghost hunters. What is the truth behind the signal? Find out in the Arcadia Signal!

Call of Cthulhu: Room B12

My reaction to Aaron's actions

Goddamnit Aaron what are you doing

Another foray into Call of Cthulhu with Tom at the helm. A 1920s scenario set in New York City, Aaron and I play investigators looking into a strange series of events. Let’s just say unpleasant forces at at foot. I play a morally dubious legbreaker and former anarchist while Aaron plays a highly moral doctor as we delve into the secrets of room B12.
