Re: In my first game they decided to hit a GOO with a car.

Yes, good work. As long as the players are enjoying the game, then your definitely doing something right. With GOOs I wouldn't get too bogged down in statistics. You could, for example, have had Y'golonac knocked off the pier into the sea and out of sight, that would have resolved the situation as w...

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

Not quite what you're looking for is Rowton House, a large workhouse in Camden Town, with grounds, but the web site comes with maps and photos which would make it a good setting for something! If Gibson was connected to the workhouse board of governors he could use the workhouse buildings, and he wo...

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

Does anyone know of any large estates in that direction? I'm creating my own manor house plans for the adventure, but a location to put it would be very useful. I try to stay on the side of historical accuracy when I can, but I can always replace an existing building in town if needed. There is a l...

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

Actually, the lock is a nice element to look at. It would be great to provide some mechanical means of flooding without making it the only obvious solution. I'd also like to locate a possible ice storage facility nearby to spark possible player ideas. With a few drastic solutions on hand, the scena...

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

All good points, and worth bringing into the discussion. Thanks for the research -- lots of great inspiration for further game support. I love Edinburgh, and its absurd angular streets surrounding the castle. On the other hand, we've gone a fair way down the London road at this point, focusing on C...

Re: Your ideas for show topics

Ever since I read Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods', I've thought Bast would be an interesting figure to incorporate into an Egypt based scenario but I haven't seen many mentioned. Most of the AP's I've listened to tend to stay away from Elder Gods. Bast was used quite a lot by Robert Bloch in his Myth...

Howard wrote:Thoth's Dagger is a Arthur Conan Doyle story. That era of discovery is a creepy good setting. Thanks.
I think you're thinking of "The Ring of Thoth"? An excellent little story.

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

Edinburgh is great. I love the way there were shops, pubs and brothels down in the vaults. It's like something out of Poe! On the subject of sea platforms: there were a number of Nepoleonic sea forts on the South Coast of England which has some of the qualities of an oil rig. If people want to do so...

Re: Scenario Writing

What you've got, Koakai, is a setting which is good. Now you need to ask yourself how you get to the island and the buildings. How does the situation tie to the Mythos? Was some Herbert West style unethical experimentation going on? Is the house built over something dangerous? Is it haunted? Then yo...

Re: MU Podcast 027 – 6-Word Brainstorming

I'm writing this having not yet listened to part 28. I liked the story brainstorming. It's exactly the kind of thing I do if I'm pushed for an adventure. A various times the plot reminded me of the Doctor Who story The Seeds of Doom . In this an alien seedpod is found at the Antarctic. When it defro...
