Call of Cthulhu: The Wounded

wounded4News: Bonus Horrors of War AP podcasts are available as a free download on our Patreon.

Synopsis. The horrors of the First World War did not end at the battlefield for many. Crippling injuries affected countless soldiers and civilians on both sides. In one British countryside hospital, a group of wounded soldiers begin the long journey of coming to terms with their wounds when a doctor offers them a chance at a normal life. The experimental surgery can restore missing limbs and burned skin and safely extract embedded shrapnel. It seems like a panacea for all forms of injury, but how can it possibly work? As the patients consider their options, their dreams grow strange. Their war has ended, but another one beckons…

Call of Cthulhu: Iconoclasts

iconoclastsA group of useful idiots from the West have journeyed to war-torn Iraq in search of power and fame as soldiers of ISIS. Barely speaking the local language, they are used as pawns and propaganda tools. Their latest mission seems like a cakewalk – search an old man’s mansion for possible hidden antiquities and artifacts. The man is unarmed, assisted by a few servants, one of whom is an informant for ISIS. Ancient artifacts can be sold on the black market or smashed on video for propaganda, both valuable to the terrorist organization. Little do they realize that some artifacts are not meant to be sold or broken.

This game was recorded at Gen Con 2015 in an open gaming room, so there will be background noise. Sorry!

Savage Worlds: Accursed at Gen Con 2014

accursed-picIn a world of dark fantasy and perilous adventure, the forces of evil have triumphed. Those who remain uncorrupted by wickedness must rely upon monsters to fight against the darkness. Witches have ruled the land since the last battles of conquest, but their Grand Coven has been sundered, leaving behind remnants of a once-mighty army. The remnants of the horde include captured citizens of the conquered nations that fought as the Witches’ shock troops. Tom contributed to the Kickstarter for this setting and participated in a game run by the creators at Gen Con 2014. I do not have the names of the GM or other players handy, but will edit this post when I get that info.

Call of Cthulhu: Lord of the Peaks

roads_avalancheNews: Check out the Horrors of War, Pagan Publishing’s Kickstarter for their anthology of WW1 scenarios! If you like these scenarios, please help support their creators.

A group of Royal Italian Army soldiers has been ordered to check up on an observation post high up in the Dolomite Mountains. The Austrian army is the least of their concerns. Deadly storms, avalanches, the cold, disease, and other hazards claim more lives than their enemies. However, as the squad approaches their goal, little do they realize that there are far worse threats than men or nature. Who is the true lord of the peaks? Find out in this special one shot recorded at Gencon 2014! Sorry about the noise, but we had to play in an open gaming room that piped in music, even late at night.

Call of Cthulhu: The Iron Devil

CHOO CHOO MOTHERFUCKERAllied intervention in the Russian Civil War was a complex and murky affair, but it did result in many American troops being stationed in Vladivostok in 1919. One company of soldiers was given a mission to bring supplies and munitions to allies near the front, which can only be delivered by an armed and armored train. Little do the soldiers know they will encounter more than cagey ‘allied’ soldiers, corrupt officials, and bandits. Something dark and monstrous lurks in the wilds, something powerful enough to prey even on a train filled with soldiers. This game was recorded at Gencon 2013 and was run by Pagan Publishing‘s Adam Scott Glancy. Enjoy!
