Re: MUP 141 - Chris Spivey, Special Collections

I haven't seen this posted, but in the Stigmatised Properties in Japan segment, I mentioned that there was a website that users can check for stigmatised properties, perhaps in their own neighbourhood. Head to Oshimaland.com and see for yourself. You may need Google Translate on hand, but it should ...

Re: MUP 142 – Tome Much of a Good Thing

For anyone curious about the creepy voice of the Kuchisake Onna in the segment: that part was voiced by my wife. :twisted:

Re: Looking for players for Oct 9th

Looks like it wasn't meant to happen. I'll try again another time!

Looking for players for Oct 9th

You know what? I think it's time I pay it forward, and set up a game myself. I'm looking for 4 players MAX for a 1920s game using 6th.ed for October 9th. A fair warning though: this is a scenario I created myself. I have run this before with friends, and I am busy tweaking it and refining it. This i...

Re: Organize your online Cthulhu games here.

Hey everyone. It's been a while :oops: Life has been a little crazy the last two years with trying to find a stable job here in Japan, but I finally feel like I am in a good place to pick up Cthulhu again. I know it's short notice, but is anyone playing a game this weekend I can hop in on? I just si...

Need advice on using NPCs with PCs

So, after the game on Friday with Cthulhu Dark, I realised that one of my weaknesses as a GM is how I use NPCs. I have no problem acting them out, but I do tend to forget that they are there if they are accompanying players. Do you guys have any tips and tricks that I can use to implement the NPC be...

Re: Cthulhu Dark: How far can I push the SAN?

The game went pretty well! I like CD's emphasis on roleplaying, and the house rule of the "terror roll" really made players scream out loud as they acted out their terror! I will be running this game again in a few months, and will edit the recording and post it here (when I have the time!).

Re: Cthulhu Dark: How far can I push the SAN?

There's a way to do this without destroying them. Have them for terror (it's one of my house rules). Just roll for sanity and if they fail, then they're affected by the horror of the situation, it's not sanity blasting, so they don't lose any sanity points. They're just pants crappy scared, screami...

Re: Google+

I've done one game via Google Hangouts, and I'd do it again, certainly, but I don't think I need a dice rolling engine or moderation tool like roll20. We just rolled our own physical dice and were honest with the results. To be honest, we never used the dice engine at all in Roll20. I used it solel...

Cthulhu Dark: How far can I push the SAN?

So I am making a Cthulhu Dark game for tomorrow, which is set in a Japanese High school. I have a few questions about the SAN system in CD: How many SAN encounters would be appropriate for a one-shot CD game? Because of the school's history (in which the PCs will be trapped) I want to hint as to the...
