Your ideas for show topics

We want to do more stuff that's player oriented, and we'd love your suggestions that can help players.

We want to hear your topic suggestions, regardless of if they're player or Keeper oriented.

What are your thought's on playing without a written scenario? "Winging it" if you will. The keeper I played with is a Lovecraft fan, and has read the Keeper's Manual, so he knows the creatures and the stats, but he's essentially making up the scenario as we go. Do you feel this can improve the experience for the players or diminish it overall? Why?

This is a good topic. Sandbox gaming versus Scripted gaming, what are the pros and cons as it applies to Call of Cthulhu.

Indeed, that is a good topic. We should hit that one fairly soon, I think it would be of benefit to a lot of people.

Since the Miskatonic History Department just visited Connecticut, how about a look at the legendary "Moodus noises"?

That's an awesome idea! I had no idea the high school team mascot is "The Noises." That's hilarious. I lived in Indiana a few years ago when there was a big "buzz" about the so-called "Kokomo Hum." There are a lot of these unexplained low-frequency phenomena around, so it would be fun to wrap them all together.

And this is obviously a great topic for playing with sound effects. Brilliant!

I need to start a thread over in the National History Honors Society for lecture series ideas.

Wordcraftian, are you having fun in that scenario? Does the "winging" it diminish your experience at all?

Perhaps an ep on developing buy in. Why is it that investigators are poking around in dusty libraries rather than running like snot away from these horrors, and how Players and Keepers can work together to generate believable, and enjoyable reasons for the Investigators not to run for the cops.
