I know I pointed that out during character creation but Caleb insisted each player make whatever PC he wanted to.

Yes, but if I recall correctly it was you who deputized me with the tree branch ceremony.

To be fair, the cop wasn't too sharp, maybe that's how he got the job all those years ago?

Preemptive Revenge was incredibly creepy and unsettling in a way that I'm not sure Caleb has managed in the past. Very good for an improvised game with a two and a half hour prep time. I can't wait to see what 'monster' he comes up with next.

The Long Island game was hilarious. I love how at first, the players glossed over the fact that it was still prohibition but they went for the (illegal) bar to start drinking anyway, as if it were normal.

Awww shucks...thanks guys!

I can't really take credit for either idea, though. Preemptive Revenge come out of PC behavior in Eclipse Phase (horrific in any context other than Eclipse Phase) and my best attempt at trying to run Continuum. The Long Island game came from one of my former student. I miss her crazy-ass, but always interesting, interpretations of our books.

Deputy Cudgel for the WIN!

I think preemtive revenge worked so well because you started with children and the tried you best to drive them insane.  Children and horror is just...well...horrible.

Gotta say Ive actually been trying to formulate a game idea based on Calebs suggestion about getting a knock on the door during a game. Thinking of using that as the trigger as the players are some seperate listeners who live in the same town as the podcasters as there having a live game run on Halloween. Then something strangely terrifying happens to the podcasters, and the players, after hearing the wierdness then have to figure out what happend.

Seriously, I was laughing so hard from that part of the game before the horror began. Thank you Caleb.

Dude! The Halloween game! Remember the little Spiderman who gave no fucks? Just came to the door with her hand out, took the candy, and left. Kid was like a 3 year old version of Omar from the Wire.

Caleb is great, and I suggest we find a way to have him cloned so we can all have them

I hope you have more stories that end with "...and a week later, the house blew up because they were cooking meth in the basement."
I didn't come here to win. I came to make friends.

I can just see it now. 
"I went to see my parents last month... and a week later, the house blew up because they were cooking meth in the basement."

I started teaching in this neew school ...and a week later, the house blew up because they were cooking meth in the basement."

I once bought some milk at the corner store ...and a week later, the house blew up because they were cooking meth in the basement."

I think we can all see the corilation.
