The Shadow Over Dunwich - Replacement Players Needed

Postby Mr. Handy » Sun Dec 16, 2012 4:28 am

Two of my players have disappeared mysteriously, and I'm looking for people willing to take over their characters. The Shadow Over Dunwich is the third adventure in my Doctor Who/Call of Cthulhu campaign, but you don't need to know anything about the first two games or even Doctor Who to participate. This scenario is set in Dunwich, England in 1985. The United Nations Intelligence Taskforce has sent a team to locate a missing scientist there. I need replacement players for Private Leonek Novak, a Polish-born driver and engineer, as well as Valerie Soames, a little old lady with hidden talents. Please post here if you're interested and let me know which of the two you'd prefer. We're still early in the adventure, so there isn't a whole lot of catching up, and the team hasn't even reached Dunwich yet.

I'd like to join up.
I believe Leonek would be better suited to my style.

Welcome aboard, DrPeterson! You've got Leonek now. When you have time, you can catch up on what he's been through so far (it isn't much). You can find his character sheet in Cast of Characters. You should read Your Career in U.N.I.T. if you want a little background, and you may optionally read the Introduction thread. Otherwise, you should stay out of any In Character threads that don't contain your character. When the adventure is over, you'll be able to go back and read everything afterwards. Leonek's story starts in Missing in Action and continues in Accident and Emergency, which is his current thread. Once you've caught up, you should make and post a Spot Hidden roll for your character as you'll see the others have done.

Excellent,

I've already caught up on the action so far.
Find the doc, helicopter crash, get patched up, drive to Dunwich.

I'm going out for a brisk winter walk, but when I get back, I'll get round to rolling.

And thanks for having me, I'll start brushing up on my Polish!

Valerie Soames is still available for a replacement player, and now so is UNIT covert operative Elliot Webb, as his player hasn't logged on in four weeks.

Elliot Webb has now been recast, but we still need someone to play Valerie Soames.

Story, our Time Lord in my Doctor Who/Call of Cthulhu campaign, is currently without a player. If you're interested in taking him over, please post here to let me know. This may be temporary, but it could very well be permanent if his player is unable to return. Note that this will require a significant commitment from whoever plays him, as he will be central to the adventure and will be expected to continue in future adventures. There are also two previous adventures in the Hall of Fame, The Terror Out of Time and The Ninth Planet. Whoever takes over Story should at least read the threads in which Story participated in those games at some point. The first two scenarios aren't directly connected to this one, but they are part of an overarching campaign and some things that happened may be relevant later.

The character of Elliot Webb has been abandoned by his player, and the new player I had lined up to take him over wasn't able to join, so he is once again available. I'm putting Chad Engraham up for grabs as well, since his player also hasn't posted in a long time.

Hey Handy, I'm all caught up and waiting for something to happen in Masks. I think the biggest problem here is things just move too slow.

Anyway, I'm willing to take over Elliot Webb if its still available.

Yes, he's still available, and now he's yours. To catch up, you'll need to read what he's done so far. You may optionally read the Introduction thread in Episode 1, but other than that you may not read IC threads that don't contain your character. In Episode 1, you should read Missing In Action, Infiltration, and Ghostwriter. In Episode 2 (the current one, in the main game forum), you should read Reunion, Bottoms Up, Next Steps, On the Trail, and More Visitors (your current thread). Once you've caught up, you may start posting any time you're ready.

By the way, you could probably pick up your old character Clay in Watch the World Burn. We're early in the second chapter now, and the Keeper has been running him as an NPC since you left.

The player playing UNIT Technical Advisor Raymond MacIntyre hasn't been around for nearly two months, so I'm opening him up for someone else to play.

I can play Raymond MacIntyre if you still need someone to fill in that role. If so, Please let me know what is needed to get started.

Thanks

Yes, I still need a player for Raymond. Welcome aboard! To start with, you should read Stranger in a Strange Land, which is his character creation thread. As you'll see when you read it, he's a bit...different. You should also read Your Career in U.N.I.T. for some background. In addition, you'll need to read Raymond's IC threads to catch up. Don't read any IC threads that don't involve Raymond (except for Introduction in Episode 1, which everyone may read). In Episode 1, you'll need to read Missing In Action, Accident and Emergency, What's Up, Doc?, Regrouping, and Museum Piece. In Episode 2 (the current episode), please read Searching the Past, Tourists, History Repeating, More Visitors, and Together Again, which is his current thread. You may post there once you're caught up and ready, but I plan to create a new thread for him later tonight.

The player of Valerie Soames, little old lady and UNIT covert operative, hasn't logged on in well over a month, so the character is now up for grabs.

Poor Val,
Leonek was getting quite fond of her.

Raymond MacIntyre's new player has also disappeared, so he is also available to be taken over again.

Awww, poor Raymond, he has such OP skills too :cry: no love for him..
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.
