RE: Role Playing Journals
That's a lot of players. And it's been growing. How do you deal with it? I can barely manage a table of 5.

It's not easy. Add to the fact that most of them are just being silly most of the time, it makes it rather hard to establish the mood. They have fun though, and the gameplay is pretty good actually, as is the role playing. Not a lot gets accomplished in a game session. Luckily, only five people signed up this week.

Once more into the breech! After some planning, some of the investigators head back to the North Star Amusement Arcade and Pleasure Pier, determined to uncover the secrets of the place and put an end to the terrible things happening there. What they find beneath the carnival, again, is not pleasant.

On February 12, 2017, I ran the fourth session of Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians as part of the regular Providence, R.I. campaign taking place in 1928.

The role playing-journals of the game can be found here:

RE: Role Playing Journals
More of the investigators join the group once again and continue their investigation of the dark carnival, this time heading into the nearby city dump, where strange things have happened, before once again entering the crypt of the ghouls to seek out the missing people.

On February 19, 2017, I ran the fifth session of Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians as part of the regular Providence, R.I. campaign taking place in 1928.

RE: Role Playing Journals
With proof of the carnival's misdeeds, Providence Police could finally orchestrate a raid to remove the criminal elements of the place. Allied with the Providence County Sheriff's Department, Pawtucket Police, and the Rhode Island State Police, a daring raid was set for the early morning hours of the very next day. Several of the investigators who had helped save the two kidnap victims were brought along to advise police, but a force of over 100 men was set to raid the carnival and bring it down.

On February 26, 2017, I ran the sixth and final session of Dark Carnival by David A. Hargrave from Curse of the Chthonians as part of the regular Providence, R.I. campaign taking place in 1928. Each of the players rolled up an additional Providence Police Officer, Pawtucket Police Officer, and Providence County Sheriff's Deputy to use for the raid.

RE: Role Playing Journals
On June 23, 2017, a massive evacuation of the eastern seaboard of the United States created a great deal of havoc as some kind of toxic substance was released, allegedly by the Russians, that caused people to sicken and then die, then rise from the dead and try to kill and eat the living. This is the story of how a few civilians in Boone, N.C., managed to escape that terrible day.

On March 5, 2017, my friend Kyle Matheson ran a modern day Basic Roleplaying System game for our regular Deadworld session. He ran this as a one-shot but we may return to Kyle's Deadworld campaign in the future.

The role playing journals for the game session can be found here:

http://www.penandpapergames.com/forums/e...from-Boone

Players were (in order of appearance):

Hannah Gambino as Daryl Green (Hunter)
Ashton LeBlanc as Daryl Greene (Hunter)
Myself as Mervin "Ace" Terwilliger (Pilot)
Katie Gallant as Roger "Maverick" Stanfield (Pilot)
James Brown as Josh Hardy (Artist)
Collin Townsend as Hobo Joe Johnson (Begger/Hobo)
Yorie Latimer as Salama Pollo/Jake Miller (Shaman)
Katelyn Hogan as Matthew White (Athlete)
Ambralyn Tucker as Denise "Danny" Valerie Abbott (Mechanic)

RE: Role Playing Journals
It's been about a month since the terrible events of the Dark Carnival in Providence, R.I., when Miss Edington gets a visit from a pharmacist trying to sell her a very strange bottle of red wine.

On March 26, I ran a short scenario for my regular Call of Cthulhu group as part of my regular Providence campaign taking place in 1928. This time it was Circle of Friends from the Minions book.

The role-playing journal of the game session can be found here:

Additionally, a playlist of seven videos of the game session and a highlights video can be found here:

RE: Role Playing Journals
In November 1971, a group of people boarded a Learjet bound for Kansas City, Missouri, for a seminar, having been sent by the company they worked for. Unfortunately, this was no simple flight, but a trip into the unknown that would leave all of them terrified of the Fear Jet.

On April 1, I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario for NerdCon 2017 at Appalachian State University. The premise was a group of people who work together were taking a Learjet to a seminar when something interfered.

The role-playing journals for the game session can be found here:

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blog/172/entr...e-landing/

Additionally, a playlist of six videos of the game session and a short highlights video can be found here:

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL...fPy1Zk_MFM

A couple of players had to leave during the game but were later replaced by two new people who came in so a couple of the characters ended up with two players.

Players were:

Alexander Lawson as Morty Finch (Clerk)
Alexander Rogers as Melvin Bell (Accountant)
Carl Cordini as Darryl Jefferson (Security Guard)
Bay Shuford as Anne Simmons (Switchboard Operator/Receptionist)
George Ekholm and Danielle Brown as Trevor Stevens (Middle Management Businessman)
Ambralyn Tucker and Drake Powell as Denise Thompson (Secretary)

RE: Role Playing Journals
Only a week or so after dealing with the strange events of the wine and the circle of friends, several people from Providence, R.I., have some chocolates given to them by their friend Robert Ramsden. They find themselves transported to the Dreamlands ...

On April 9, I ran a Dreamlands game (for Call of Cthulhu) for my regular Providence campaign taking place in 1928. This time we played "To Sleep, Perchance to Dream" and "Lemon Sails," two short scenarios from the Dreamlands book.
