The Zero Room - OOC Chat Thread

1985, Dunwich, England: Will the Time Lord, his companions, and a team from UNIT uncover the secrets that this decaying town harbors, or will they fall prey to its horrific perils?

This is Classic Doctor Who meets Call of Cthulhu, the third of a series of connected adventures set in different eras and locations that started with The Terror Out of Time and The Ninth Planet.

You might say we're a bit "tied up" at our end too :D

After the adventure ends, you'll all be allowed to look at all of the threads and see exactly what happened. Being able to keep everyone in separate threads during the adventure really does add to the suspense.

Realistically, no. There's simply not enough time before the scenario ends, but you will have plenty of time afterwards if you survive. If someone had found it during the first trip to Dunwich, there would have been enough time to get started on it, but the focus then was on finding Dr. Kirby and getting her out of there. If I ever run a scenario in this campaign that takes place not too long after 1985, your character could return, but I have no immediate plans for one. I have the next several scenarios mapped out, and that era isn't one of the settings. I do have ideas for a future adventure that fits into the timeframe, but it will be years before I can get to it (if I ever do).

I'm not planning on running another campaign while I'm also running this one. The next scenario is set in Ancient Rome, in 44 BC to be precise. What you found probably would just end up driving you insane anyway. ;)

I'm hoping to get things set up at the end of June. I'll be away at a convention from July 1-5, and I won't have time to post then, but I plan to start the new scenario shortly after I return.

sounds good, an ancient rome setting sounds like it has the potential for a very dark story. question, i want to start a campaign, how do i go about doing that? i have an interest thread up already (Walker and co. - Now hiring!) but i cant figure out how to start the actual thread itself for the story.

You're doing it right so far. Once you've gathered enough players and you're ready to start, let me know by posting in the interest thread (where I've already posted). You'll also need to provide a short text blurb about the game, like you'll see on the home page for the other games. Then I'll set up a forum for you and make you the Keeper. Any administrator (red username) or global moderator (green username) can create a forum, so someone else may do it first, but I'm more likely to see your post before the others.

Glad to hear it! This scenario should wrap up within a couple of weeks or so. I'll have some time off in late June to get things rolling, and I may even be able to at least get the TARDIS crew started in a thread then.
