It's okay! The burn-y outside matches the fiery thirst for revenge inside your heart.

I'd been wanting to try CoC for awhile but couldn't afford the book.  But Ross directed me to the quick-start rules online last week, and there appears to be some demand on here (I interpret demand as two people), so I spent today writing an adventure called "Bryson Springs".  It's for 4 to 5 players and set in rural California during the Depression.  On the off-chance it doesn't suck--or we can revise it not to suck after the fact--I'll post the document and links to my research on here if/when we play it.

Regardless of whether or not it ever sees the light of day, CoC is a fun system to write in--and a little less prep-heavy than even Dirty World, in my opinion.  Most of all, thank you again, internet friends, for encouraging me and getting me writing again.

Man. Please, please run a CoC game. Yours would be epic.

Caleb, you are the man. Obviously you're no Tom Church, but you're pretty fucking awesome!

Oh man. We need more Caleb. What's with the lack of Caleb in the APs posted lately, Ross? C'MON

So I know I'm way behind on APs, but I'm doing my best to catch up and just finished Andrew's Fortune Part 2.  Let me just say, I loved the way it just descended into chaos and it sounded like a blast to play in (basically from the police station onward)...

Caleb, you beautiful bastard. You've done it again.
Bryson Springs is in-fucking-credible.

You actively scared Ross in a CoC game. Incredible.

Agreed! Bryson Springs was amazing! I just finished listening to it about an hour ago. Without giving anything away, I have to say that Caleb's descriptions are top notch. I hope he ends up doing another CoC session again, because I'd love to see his spin on a "Mythos" character or storyline.

Keep 'em comin' dude. U rock!
