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.

I am looking forward to the possibility of investigator deaths before we even manage to get out to Dunwich. Nice way to set the tone of terrible luck and bad juju.

Also everyone stateside who is in the Hurricane path - take care and stay dry.

Thanks! The rest of you take care as well.

It should certainly be interesting. Sometimes the dice throw a curve ball, and something completely unexpected happens that changes things up. I love it when that happens. I don't think any investigators will die just yet, but there is a small chance. I was most worried about Valerie, but with her critical success she'll be fine. I'm about to update the thread now. Even so, this does complicate matters and make things more difficult from the outset.

It's moments like these that make me love roleplaying games. I still can't believe it happened, but hopefully it'll help. Ummm, medic?

Good luck and best wishes to those with the hurricane looming!

Really curious about what's going on in the other threads now! Sounds like it might be similar to what happened to us in the last adventure, when one dice roll changed everything and things suddenly got a lot more dangerous.

Have you guys run into the Star Spawn yet? Or the Dimensional Shamblers? They're horrible. And watch out for the Hounds of Tidalos. You can't give them the slip at all!

It's something along those lines, though in the last game it was a series of die rolls that produced the exact end result that followed, and the combination of rolls had very low odds of happening. It's great when stuff like that happens, as it usually takes the story down a path that had never even occurred to me but is full of horrible - I mean, wonderful - possibilities.

I'll be away and unable to post November 2-4 and November 9-18, but I should be able to post more frequently between those times and after I return.

Here is one of the maps I've been using to get a feel for Dunwich and figure out where everything is. If you zoom in all the way, you can even talk a virtual walk around Dunwich in Google street view and see some of the sights.

I've been absent the last couple of days--sorry about that! Unexpected medical issue. Things should be back to normal now however.

I got back earlier this week, but it's taken me some time to catch up. I've now updated the IC threads and should be able to keep things moving.

Is there some reason that none of the UNIT people have posted? I updated their thread over a week ago. It's also been a long time since I've had a post for Lucius.

I've often wondered about the thread Stranger in a Strange Land. It's not locked and the last post was by you Mr. Handy on 9/19...did CrackheadC. drop out?

Me too, well I was hoping the others would cue in of what they needed when a few people lost their equipment in that helicopter crash
The other children cheered him on. His name voiced in a steadily rising pace, urging him to do it. “Am I really doing this?”, the young boy thought and struck his victim with a rock.

Sorry, when Handy went on his trip I was only checking here and there, then Thanksgiving, it's finals times for my students and I just got over being sick. But I'm back and a post is incoming.

That is actually an OOC thread for character creation, which is why it hasn't been updated in months.

Welcome back, everyone! We have three of our UNIT people back so far, at least, and I can NPC the others if needed. The vehicles won't move until the drivers (Leonek and Valerie) say they're leaving, as I need decisions about where everyone is going and if you're splitting up. I'll do it this weekend if their players don't act by then. A couple of our players may have disappeared and haven't logged in since early November, but I can recruit replacements for them if they don't return soon. Otherwise, they'll stay NPCs in the meantime. We're getting close to the point where it's difficult to add new playable characters, so this would be one way for a new player to enter the game.
