And we're underway!

We'll jump right in. I'm going to run a prologue, and we'll see how your character handles himself (or herself!) in a few situations on the street. I'm not worried about stats and rolls just yet... results of your actions will be GM fiat, just until we get going. You can trust me...  :mellow:

This is just to let you develop your character, and to give me some idea of where to put their numbers when I build the "pregen." When we finish the prologue, I should have a character sheet for you, and we'll start the more traditional game with stats and rolls.

At any rate... the first post is up! Let the descent into madness begin!  :lol:

So, just for my planning, have you ever run or played any of the following campaigns? They're not correct for the period, but I may use ideas from them for story seeds. But if you're overly-familiar with any of them I'll rule it out.

Shadows of Yog-Sothoth

Masks of Nyarlahotep

Beyond the Mountains of Madness

Escape from Innsmouth

I’ve run MoN but have neither run nor played any of the others. I’ve read the HPL novella At the Mountains of Madness though, if that’s relevant.

The BtMoM campaign is a sequel to that novella, where an expedition sets out to uncover what really happened. The story HPL wrote is actually a “text” that appears in the game. So if you ever have the chance to play it, you’ll be ahead of the curve! I actually ran it for my teenage kids a few years ago... so it’s a personal favorite of mine.
