Call of Cthulhu game
« on: May 19, 2017, 09:55:46 PM »
Anyone interested?  :cthulhu:

Either a investigation or a campaign - up to you?

For an adventure, possibly something from Pagan Publishing's Mysteries of Mesoamerica - The Well of Sacrifice looks good.

For a campaign I was thinking of the "new Masks of Nyarlathotep" i.e. the Two Headed Serpent.

Let me know what you think people.

Ask CG - she was a good investigator if memory serves me right.

the only difference to me is that 7th edition is now %. I can live with either 6th or 7th... 6th might be easier?

Good to see you back here Cear.  As you know,I always enjoy Cthulhu games, but I am not familiar with what you are suggesting.  I would be interested in your game if you could talk me through it very patiently as I am very rusty with roleplaying by now  :cthulhu:

Right-oh then, so we have KKM, Greyguard, Espatier and EB.

If someone can set up a sub-forum, I'll get the game underway towards the middle of next week.

The system is straightforward and is designed not to get in the way of the game. The better you are at doing something the higher percentage chance you have to succeed. Simply roll under or equal to your skill to succeed. For those unsure of character creation, I can either puppy-walk you through the process, or if you prefer, give you pre-gens.

As has been said, 6th edition is the more tried and tested system, though 7th edition ain't difficult to pick up either. But as a preference for 6th has been stated already, we can go with that.

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the world where terrifying beings lurk unseen by any but the most unfortunate souls, those who would never be believed if they ever said anything.

Right! Here ewe go then.
6th edition rules

The scenario is set in the modern-day, starting in Alexandria, Egypt. and taking in various other places in the world. The Linguistics professor has been pressured by the dean of his University to take part in a TV series

The characters I am looking for are as follows;
A Linguistics professor (the brains of the outfit - important)
A highly ambitious TV reporter (financial support through network - BBC / National Geographic / CNN / ???)
An focused agent of the law / military (the group tank - important)

This game is not level based. You start out as ordinary Joe Public - well, within your occupation that is, and as you get exposed to baddies and sanity-blasting Mythos events / creatures, you  use your skills. Every skill you succeed at you get a 'check'.  at an appropriate juncture (probably between countries) I may allow you to increase your 'checked' skills.

Skills are percentile based, the better you are at something, the higher your chance to succeed. Simply roll equal to or under your skill 'score' to be successful. But I'll go into that more in depth later.

A word on Sanity before I go. Sanity, as the name implies is how much of a grip you have on what we would call the 'real world'. However, as you uncover deeper and darker truths, your Sanity slowly at first starts to take hits. If it gets too low, like Hit Points for example, then your investigator may get sectioned, or worse.

Hi Cear, sorry to vanish again for a while, but I no longer get email notification that posts have been made.  A shame, that was so useful.  If you are still going ahead with this game, I am still in but have no idea what I might be.  The news reporter looks most likely for me.  You would, however, have to totally puppy walk me through character creation/rolling etc. as it has been too long and I can't remember now how to do any of it. :bangin:
