Call of Cthulhu

Games run using The Call of Cthulhu BRP system

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).

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!

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.

Call of Cthulhu: Well of Sacrifices

A scenario from Mysteries of Mesoamerica from Pagan Publishing, it is described as “a legend around Pagan Publishing. Playtested again and again, the scenario gained the nick-name The Boneyard.” A group of archeologists check out a fabled Mayan site only mentioned in a dead explorer’s notes. Run as a pick up game at Gencon 2009, I run the scenario for Greg Stolze, Shane Ivey, James Knevitt, Tom, Aaron, and Andy. Find out who lives and who dies in this aptly named adventure!

We had a blast with the scenario and if you want to run it, pick up a copy of Mysteries of Mesoamerica. Great art, writing and more!

Call of Cthulhu – Delta Green: Night Shift Playtest

Have you seen the Yellow Sign? Guarding a mall is a strange assignment for a cell of experienced Delta Green agents, especially with the heavy machineguns, body armor and other tactical equipment they’ve been given. Yet as they fight off murderous gangs and encounter unexplained sounds and sights, they realize they aren’t in a mall. They are in another realm entirely…

This is a playtest of a scenario called Night Mall based on ideas developed by members of the Delta Green Email List and the Delta Green scenario called Night Floors (PDF) written by Dennis Detwiller. I ran this scenario 4 more times: twice at Gencon 09 and twice at Dragoncon 09. I will post each game, as every single time I ran it, it turned out quite differently. If you enjoy this scenario, you should check out the original King In Yellow or the King in Yellow wiki.
