Future Ransom: The Aaron/CoC Project
« on: April 12, 2010, 03:04:17 PM »
   As some of you may know, I will be running two CoC games at Gencon this year.  However, as this was my first time registering events, and the fact that I have the attention span of a goldfish on LSD, I accidentally registered the two games at the same time.  Well, I could have cancelled one of them and resubmitted it, but a late afternoon trip to take Ross to get chinese drive-thru yielded a great moment of inspiration.

   Our dear friend Aaron is currently unsure if he can raise the necissary capital to go to Gencon this year.  It is distressing him greatly.  So, in the interests of helping a friend, and getting better ratings for RPPR, the following idea crystallized...we will run a ransom to raise money so our worthy constituent may go to Gencon.  In return, from now until the day of Gencon arrives, we will take Aaron and teach this violence-hating introvert how to run horror (particularly in CoC) and HE will be the one to run my Divine Fire scenario at Gencon.

   For the months leading up to the big event, there will be an ongoing 1980's training montage as we teach Aaron that it's not only a good thing to rend players apart with the claws of eldritch mutated Nazis, but we will take you along every step of the way.  To first learning the system, then to the basics of running good horror games (with the help of Ross, the Fear Master himself), to finally running published scenarios for the RPPR group.  And every step will be recorded, both for our own amusement, and to silence anyone that says our training methods don't work (bastards).

   Obviously, this will not commence until after the Codex of War is completed.  Still, I want to put it out there and see what our gaming ninjas on the RPPR forums think about this.  Make your voice heard.  Do your duty.  There is no I in team.  Only you can make a difference.  Kick the tires and light the fires.  That's no moon, it's a space station.  Kneel before Zod.  Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.

YES.
YES.

This is all very good. There is no reason this should not be.

Oh for the love of GOD!
BEST RANSOM EVER.
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

Either Aaron runs a horror game or he shatters. And we get to listen to it either way.

Sure, I'll donate. The more people at GenCon the better.

What are the chances that one of the rewards would be a Skype Cthulhu game run by Aaron?  I'd donate for that in a heartbeat.

At long last, a Call of Cthulhu game as it was meant to be played - after four hours, the players get the unsettled feeling something nasty was around, but they manage to avoid it with some minor sanity loss.

Anyway, I'm a sucker for the APs anyway, and would love to hear more Aaron. Yes, yes, and thrice yes!

Whenever Tom posts on the forums it's like the Grand Vizier is gracing us with his malevolent presence.

Aaron must be a horror master.

IT MUST BE DONE!!!

If this means we'll also get a version of some sort of supplement for divine fire then I'd be a happy donater.

I've ran the game twice, with my own slant on it, to great success.
