I discussed this one-shot briefly here.
Call of Cthuhlu
- 23 Aug
This was by way of a birthday treat. It was my first face-to-face session in over six months, and it felt great! I introduced 'the Home Group' to Call of Cthuhlu, playing the 'Edge of Darkness' module from the 7th Edition Starter Set.
It went down very well. After a couple of false starts with unecassary intimidation (and "I shoot the nurse!") the group got settled into the idea of investigation and spent a lot of useful library time. We got much further into the scenario than I expected - I'd thought that it might take three sessions (if they wanted to go on past the first), but they're more than half-way through and are planning the next.
In prep for the next session I've statted up a NPC who they had dealings with as a spare in case of character death (I may also do a second, just in case).
It was also the first time I'd been Keeper in a Call of Cthuhlu game, something I'd been looking formward to. I must have been doing something right - the mother of one of the players claimed that she had nightmares!
- 26 Aug
The first session of this Blackmoor-based old-school game saw us mapping on behalf of the the Tunnel Fighters Guild of Booh. I got to play a cleric of my favourite petty god - King 'Shroom. Dozens of giant rats and goblins were encountered.
Dark Sun/Dying Star
- 28 Aug - The One With the Tortured Templar and the Vegan Undead
This was our last session in this setting for a while as Dave focusses on the Blackmore/OSE. I've missed the last few (three?) sessions, so had a bit of catching up to do. We continued on our mission(s) in the Ziggurat of Tyr. Torturing a Templar, defeating the Undead Guardians (50 of 'em!) and a couple of giant psychic centipedes. Much fun was had!
