Hey folks, I don't know how many people here are into role playing games but I've been tossing the idea over in my head for years about running a CoC campaign. I've never actually done PnP RPG's and I've certainly never been a dungeon master for one (closest I came to DMing was a more relaxed role in a PbP forum based RPG two years ago). I was thinking if I get enough interest it would be really great to have a test run from an existing campaign and then I'd like to have a whack at writing my own. Is this something anyone would be interested in?

 

I know Xiao is already down and I might be able to rope someone in from another forum. >.>

I have no idea what CoC is but it sounds fun. If someone can teach me how to play I'd be interested in trying.

Call of Cthulhu, it's a horror RPG. :)

 

I'm gonna create a zip file

Spoiler
and a notepad document containing key areas that people might need to refer to either when creating a character or in game, though Chaosium says it's so easy to play only the dungeon master should need a copy of da rulez.

 

So, I've got a definite two now, with Sethre as a firm maybe? :3

 

I'm aiming for five or six people to play, so if there's a lot of interest I'll just go by first come first served.

Boom!

 

That means we got:

 

> Xiao

> Sethre

> Cass

> Meech (different forum)

> Spleen (maybe)

 

and myself DMing. I'm thinking two more for the trial run and if that runs smoothly, I'll take on one more for the full event. :D

Okay I'm thinking we've got enough people now. Maybe we could work out specifics on Skype or sootin? If y'all want to add me on there my skype is AidanCW I think, 'Fawksey Wallace'...it says I live in Pyongyang. >w>

 

Then I can send everyone the stuff we'll need for the game too. :)

Okay so for the people that didn't make it, Friday 1st August, exact time TBC. :P


I'll be running 'The Haunting' which is in the guide p.250, so y'all got plenty of time to read up and make your own characters relating to that campaign. If all goes well I'll write up a proper campaign and run it over a period of weeks/ months after. :)

I found a site where you can create your character sheets and store it. If anyone is interested.
