I ran Call of Cthulhu this past weekend, the first session of an experiment using Silent Hill.  The scenario, called Restless Dreams (parts 1-1 through 1-10), can be found here:

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blogs/2951-Max_Writer

Investigators are:

Alan O'Shea (Private Investigator)
Thomas Vanderholdt (Researcher)
Dr. Herbert Loomis (Professor of Archaeology at Boston University) - think Tom Selleck
Michael O'Shea (Reporter for the Kingsport Chronicle)

If anyone is interested, I also video recorded the game, though the sound did not come through very well as I think I have the wrong type of microphone.  I'll get a new microphone before I video record again.  Here's the link to the first one:

Here's a link to the whole playlist (I think):

Additionally, a video of the game is on youtube.  There are six, half-hour episodes (2-1 through 2-6).  The playlist link and the link to the first episode are below:

Vomitous! I'm glad I have good gag reflexes.
It's too late to be clever. I'll try being adventurous.

I ran the Call of Cthulhu scenario Leaflet Mission at CaesarCon 2013 for four players on the Pretty Lady, a B-17 Bomber dropping leaflets on Germany during WWII. My players chose the co-pilot, flight engineer, ball turret gunner, and waist gunner. I also used a model of a B-17 Bomber as the centerpoint for the game. I plan to run another scenario involving the Big Money at CaesarCon 2014.

Role playing journals of the game can be found here:

I've finally been able to run a Call of Cthulhu game again!  In this case, it was an introductory game for a couple of people who have not done much role playing.  I chose The Case from Curse of Cthulhu as the introductory scenario.  The role playing journals can be found here:

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blog/172/entry-2616-the-case-2014-03-02-part-1-1/
http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blog/172/entry-2615-the-case-2014-03-02-part-1-2/

I plan to run again within a week or so and finish up the scenario for them.

Investigators are:

Mary-Jane Holland (researcher) played by Caitlin
John McKeefe (burglar) played by John

Additionally, I audio and video recorded the game session.  Audio is not up yet but the playlist of six vids of the game can be found here:

On April 26, I ran a Call of Cthulhu Scenario at NerdCon at Appalachian State University.  This was an original scenario called The Harlotville Horror and consists of a Vice President at the Midwest Refining Company, some scientists and workers heading out to western New Mexico in search of oil.  Instead, they find the unexpected.

On May 5 I ran the conclusion to "What Goes Around, Comes Around" from Resurrected III - From the Vault.  It was a long session (over eight hours) as one of my core players was going away for the summer and I wanted her to get some closure.  We also had a LOT of people (11 at the beginning) though it trimmed down to only five by the end as people had to leave. 

Journal entries are here:
