d100 Saucy Slums for 1920's + Cthulhu game so far...







Skip to table if your a 1920s gamer and ignore this silly cthulhu stuff

I"m running shadows of yog sothoth - the first COC campaign running 2nd ed play tempting them with other crossovers and scenarios - about 8th or 9th game with one original character left only just getting spells that you might actually bother with not out of necessity - not that great one has 35% mythos most of rest have 12 or less). They utterly failed first 3&1/2 adventures from cowardice and just fleeing. Only now stalking cultists.

eg

temporarily psychic character travelling through scotland had dreams passing three towns. Now in Scotland area again may well massacre a few extra towns. Having crossovers with Ship adventure from Asylum and possible links to the brotherhood of the beast - all stuff in first few products. So lots of tempting tangents and characters getting own hints and leads. One guy from Kingsport getting confirmations of research in his vivid dreams of being a sword wielding fantasy hero.

The anti cult cult is totally not a cult

Last Game
Party gate back from scotland
Recruited new party members
-veteran investigator playboy turned wizard
-brush salesman training in catburglary
-parapsychologist dreamer from kingsport
-occult conman who doesn't believe
-gangster son of going mad mafia grandma
spend month training and reading
buy some land near dunwich to train in guns and demolitions
decide to clean up unfinished stuff
sneaked into silver twilight lodge
found too many mythos books
degenerate meat creatures in pits a bit scary
took lots of photos of evil art and spell in resurrection chamber
three players got permanent insanities after seeing things in pit
-gangster compulsively says "ladders" after seeing things in pit
-faux occultist (now a believer) into self mutilation and cutting
-brushman obsessed with numbers
stole a door with a elder sign
rescued a competent rich doctor
dropped off near dead madman at hospital
probably will all be reading and studying for a while  

played scenes of pit things from "The Resurrected"
and some italian horror sound tracks

Glory hole of Cthulhu Tonight
So my cthulhu party now have over a dozen mythos books, at least six+ allies, guns from the future and serpent man death rays. Decided to return to scotland to massacre the cult they escaped a few months back. Tried to summon a byakhee which didn't work so well but they destroyed it in hail of automatic weapon fire.

Went by luxury cruise
Saved a russian count
Met 3 scholars fleeing the mythos
Had a vision of cthulhu in a ceremony
Met guy who didn't know this Cthulhu guy was real until 32% Mythos skill doh!
Saved him from suicide by Psychiatrist staying up all night with him
Which atracted cultists on the ship
Got new books
Drowned a sailor cultist
Got girlfriends
Abused cocaine and alcohol lots
Possible marriage for once brush salesman - now saner and richer since started
Danced and read cult books
Learned the Voorish sign

Arrived in london now plotting their next murder spree and bought land with boston to england gate on both sides. Plan on sending donkey through with guns and booze. Will need agents each side of the gate. On USA side farm also used for target practice and summonings. Talking about setting up a base and making a gate.
