Four people continue to investigate what happened at Lonely Point Lighthouse and find out what is haunting the place.  They've already found the desiccated corpse of Bessie Fitch.  What other horrors will there be during the nor'easter?

I ran a Call of Cthulhu Game at NerdCon 2015 at Appalachian State University.  "Terror Over Tokyo: The Obake Shima Incident" took place during the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in April 1942.  The B-25 Bomber that is part of the raid must make hard choices when one of the fuel tanks is punctured.

I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu scenario taking place at the Globe Theatre in Elizabethan London in the year 1600.  "The Play's the Thing: The Pirates of Candle Cove" is about a new play at the Globe.  Soon, sinister things begin to happen at the theater.  What is going on and will the actors even survive?

The role-playing journals for the session are here:

I ran a one-shot Call of Cthulhu game over Skype for some friends who really wanted to play.  It was kind of an experiment as I'd never run a game online before.  We played "The Last Voyage of the Ivory Pride," a scenario I found online and printed out years ago (and I don't think is available anymore) and didn't finish so we have to figure out when the next session will be.  Can four Americans survive a trip on a tramp steamer when strange pygmies and other horrible creatures attack?

The role-playing journal of the session is here:

http://www.yog-sothoth.com/blog/172/entry-2886-the-last-voyage-of-the-ivory-pride-session-one-skype-game/

This one was not video recorded.

Players were:

Timothy Smith (Virii) as James Walker (con man)
Jeff LaForest as Raymond Coyt (radio announcer)
D.J. Stevenson as Anton Bogdan (undertaker)
Lily Williams as Elliot Strong (big game hunter)

I ran (part of) another one-shot for my Call of Cthulhu group, this one taking place in the State of Rhode Island in 1778, during the American Revolution.  "Madness or Death: The Nickerbocker's Tale" sees characters investigating a local landowner who might be a loyalist and working with the British holding nearby Newport.  Is the man guilty, or is something more sinister going on?

We finally return to Jazz Age Call of Cthulhu with a continuation of the Providence Campaign.

With the beginning of the fall semester, I started the 1920s Providence, R.I. Campaign I began some time ago.  It has been two months since the investigators, along with Quincy Washington, returned from Lonely Point Lighthouse.  Quincy has been pressing Detective Sherman to investigate the terrors that happened to him at the Arthur Mitchell House in East Providence for some time but the man was simply too busy.  As spring turns to summer in late May of 1926, it is time

The role playing journal for session one of the original scenario "Come Forth the Shadows" can be found here:

At long last, we come to the sixth and final session of "Come Forth the Shadows."  With the attack on the Kennedy house by the terrible tiny Chinamen seemingly a success, can a passer-by rescue the investigators before the police arrive?  And what then?  Where is Lily?  How will they find her again?  And how will they resolve what they think has happened to the little girl?
