Synopsis: In this one shot, a group of filmmakers has been gathered to create a very special film, but as they soon realize, the writer and director is a madman, armed with terrible powers. So what do they do? Make the movie, of course! It’s a surefire way to get into all the film festivals! What could possibly go wrong?
Hotline Miami is a mindfuck of a video game and after beating it, I realized it would fit in the world of the Cthulhu mythos. Rampant violence, madness, the blurring of hallucinations with reality, a lack of meaning in a cold, bleak universe, and hordes of goons to kill! The emphasis on masks in Hotline Miami makes it perfect as part of the Hastur/King in Yellow mythos, so I started there. Of course, I didn’t tell any of the players this before I started the scenario. See how long it takes them to figure out what’s going on. Also, this scenario is notable for a a few twists, especially when it comes to Tom and Aaron. Even if you’ve beaten the game, you’ll won’t know what’s coming!
Two office workers check into a banal hotel as a winter storm hits the city. Little do they suspect that the hotel is a nexus for unspeakable evil. This evil is not a man or an entity but the hotel itself. Brace yourself for a blast of architectural horror from RPPR!
A group of vigilantes teams up to stop an evil cult’s plans to summon a powerful being from beyond time and space. Unfortunately, there’s more to this plot than meets the eye. This game was run at Fear the Con so thanks to Fear the Boot for letting us run the game!
A group of vigilantes must uncover the mystery surrounding the death of the Silver Scarab but in doing so, they uncover a dark conspiracy that threatens the fate of the world. This was run during Gencon 2009 and while I did have a sign up sheet for the players, I lost it. So if you played in this game, please let us know in the comments.
