In search of someone to translate the scroll Professor Stalloid found in Midnight, California, the investigators enter Chinatown and speak to a lawyer there.  Then, they see two tongs at battle until a demon disrupts the fighting.  It is thought something terrible is going on in Chinatown and they decide to find out what.

On March 18, 2018, I ran the fourth session of the Down Darker Trails Campaign.  "Dark Tongs of Chinatown" was based on The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. episode “And Baby Makes Three” as well as Big Trouble in Little China.  It's the fifth game of the Catastrophe Engine Campaign.

Role playing journals of the game session are here:

It's time for one last return of the Lovecraft Country Cousins.  Created by Oscar Rios for his scenarios "Christmas in Kingsport" and "Halloween in Dunwich," I put together a third scenario for the children entitled "Valentine's in Innsmouth" as the player who played Alice wanted to explore her history.  In this case, Alice Sanders gets the cousins together for a foray into her old hometown, still under martial law and government watch since the raid of February 1928 on Innsmouth.  But Alice needs to find her Aunt Margie, who she thinks is still there.

On March 25, I ran this last original scenario of the six cousins from across Massachusetts, all of them ready to help their cousin Alice with what might be the most important event in her young life.

It's Springtime in San Francisco with many loose ends to tie up and, once that's done, it's time to head back for Midnight and then east to Colorado, where a town might be in danger.

On April 1, 2018, I continued the Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails campaign "The Catastrophe Engine" with the original "Spring in San Francisco" notes and the Deadlands Dime Novel Scenario “Worms!” by John Goff.

When the investigators head east into the wilderness from Santaquin, Utah, they didn't expect to find a fog-shrouded valley filled with impossible, prehistoric beasts.

On April 8, I continued the Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails campaign "The Catastrophe Engine" with the original scenario "The Last Valley.

As the investigators head east through Colorado, they must seek shelter in a decrepit house during a terrible storm.  The servant is a hunchback and the master of the house is nowhere to be found.  Is something sinister going on?

On April 15, the Call of Cthulhu Down Darker Trails campaign "The Catastrophe Engine" continued with the Chill scenario "The House on the Hill" from Evenings of Terror with Elvira.
