I finally typed up one of the scenarios I ran at CaesarCon this year.

The original scenario "With Extreme Prejudice" is for Call of Cthulhu and set in Vietnam in 1969.  The investigators are prisoners from Long Binh Jail, offered an opportunity to have charges dropped if they undertake a secret mission.  The three role playing journal entries for the four-hour session can be found here:

The session was also video recorded and a playlist of the session can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLonZ7fuFAFDonuZ1W8Vad62tlX29GVdbs

Several months after the events of The Asylum, Miss Hagger finds herself hired to investigate The Lonely Point Lighthouse.  She gets some local help before setting off, hoping to debunk the rumors of ghosts there.

I ran a Call of Cthulhu one-shot at the Appalachian State University Game Club LAN Party Sunday. A small group of investigators try to find out why the owner of a Providence house went mad. I've run The Haunted Place before but the player never finished the game.  Here's what happens when a group of investigators actually follow-through with the investigation.

The role playing journal for the original scenario "The Haunted Place" can be found here:
