I think one of the highlights of last night's game was when I got to utter the words, "human shield." :cthulhu1:


That was awesome!

Re: Trail of Cthulhu

What a great time I had last night with the group. Michael did an excellent job with both the story and explaining the mechanics. I came away with an immersive experience (yeah, I dreamed of purple fog and bizarre architecture) and a real appreciation of the Trail of Cthulhu/GUMSHOE system. I hope future games happen!

Thanks!!

Re: Trail of Cthulhu

Thank you very much, Ed. I'm at the stage of gaming where I try to focus on games with systems that I can internalize so I don't need to look up things in play, much. These are systems that work in a way that I'm in tune with are no more than rules medium. And I've played and run a fair bit of GUMSHOE.

And I like proselytizing for the games I love so I have an easier time finding games to play in. Building the network effect one person at a time.

Re: Trail of Cthulhu

I would like to join. Friday nights or on the weekend is good for me. I'm in the central time zone.

Re: Trail of Cthulhu

We were talking about a second game, possibly this weekend. Who would be avialable? It looks like Sam would be. Is Chad available?

Unfortunately I will not be available. I would be interested to know if there are any rewards we earned to apply to our characters? Should we hand-waive any physical and/or mental healing, and go back up to full health? If not, how much should we heal? Cause, while I can't play this weekend, I do plan to return with my FBI Agent, Special Agent Stephen London, if the opportunity ever presents itself again.

Re: Trail of Cthulhu

You earn two build points each session. They can spent on any skill, except Cthulhu Mythos, Credit Rating, Health, Magic, Sanity or Stability.

You all gain 2 points in Sanity for defeating the Mythos.

All of your abilities, including Stability, refresh.

You all learned the spell Door to Beyond.

Would the following weekend work?

My current Sanity is 10, it never took a hit during the game. Can my Sanity go above 10?

As for the following weekend, I need to check with my event scheduler, (i.e.: my wife), to see if "we've" got anything planned.
