Three Harvard college students find themselves stranded in the wilderness of Maine. A man lurches in front of their car as they travel through the forest.

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!
