Call of Cthulhu: The Haunting

It is my honor and privilege to introduce what is no doubt the finest actual play ever posted or ever will be posted on this site. This game used the classic scenario, ‘The Haunting’ albeit set in a modern era with a group of experienced and skilled investigators. Will they uncover the secrets of the house or will they suffer a fate worse than death? You will be thrilled, chilled and terrified by this actual play.

Eclipse Phase: A Glorious Fall

Glory - Eclipse Phase Eclipse Phase is an incredible transhumanist based sci-fi horror RPG. I picked up a copy at Gencon 2009 but only got to run a game of it recently. Because we were unfamiliar with the setting and system, I created a short tutorial adventure that takes place during the Fall, where most of humanity was wiped out by rogue AI systems called the TITANS. After the tutorial, I ran the adventure packaged with the GM Screen, called ‘Glory’. Tom, Aaron and Caleb are agents of Firewall, a secret organization dedicated to protecting humanity from existential threats. They are tasked with finding a missing agent, Tara Yu. She was investigating a possible hidden cache of pre-Fall tech. The players discover there are fates worse than death even in a future where death is not permanent.

Now they have to bring the giants down before they are discovered. As they learn of the political infighting  of the clans, they concoct schemes to raise chaos and free the orcs. As the GM, I swear I did not realize I was ripping off Avatar until I had already announced it to the players. Sigh. Oh well. Enjoy!
