Hell in Texas

Please post here if you're trying to gauge interest in a NEW game, which you'd like to run on Play@YSDC

Hell in Texas

Postby Spookymizu » Mon May 21, 2018 4:14 am

"Hell in Texas" finds our team of Global News Service investigative reporters recovering from the catastrophic results of their previous adventure in their homebase of Cleveland. Despite the addition of a few new members to their "Scoopy Gang," there doesn't seem to be many stories developing. Things have literally died down in Cleveland.

The group gets wind of a possible story out of east Texas. A lurid suicide, a provocative Halloween haunted house, and hints of police corruption? Sounds like an easy bonus for the taking.

"Hell in Texas" is the second adventure in the campaign mode for The Things We Leave Behind.

Era: Modern
System: Call of Cthulhu, 7th Edition
Style: Loosey Goosey and frequently offensive
Number of Players: Six

Investigator Expectations: All player characters are employed by Global News Service, a news agency that is willing to do the dirty work that the major networks won't do to get the story. "If you ain't lying, you ain't trying."

Spots already reserved for registered members:
    esmdog66 as Stuart Pritchard
    Feltch as Gordon Felcher
    Shazam as Linda Castle
    Watakushi as Noble Strong
    Squidlyn_King as Jacob O'Neil
    SisqDave as Hannah Brock

Player expectations:
    players are expected to post 4+ times a week (but I know you guys are so gung-ho, I'll be seeing you on a daily basis, right?)
    players are expected to let keeper know if they are unavailable for multiple days
    if player doesn't respond to a direct post for his character for two straight days, the keeper will play the investigator until the player returns

It will be a day or two before I'll be ready for us to start, but I will be posting little things once the game gets officially posted to the forum.

And word to the wise (and the rest of ya), I will be pretty busy this upcoming Memorial Day weekend. I've got the Kinetic Sculpture Race that will keep me a runnin'. But you still might hear from me.

With fiendish delight, I am

Can I join? I'm actually from Texas so this would be a lot of fun for me. I would like to play an East Texas local who owns a failing tourist shop and reptile farm dedicated to cryptozoology. Cole Parker's my name.

Hey there MDPLISKIN (any relation to Snake Plissken? I heard he was dead.),

So sorry, but right now it looks like I have my six participants. If anything changes, I will give you a holler!

And that investigator sounds like a lot of fun to play!

With a ghoulish grin, I am

I've validated everyone who posted in this thread, so now you can all post on the game boards. I'll validate the other new players once they've posted as well.

I've created the forum for the game here and made Spookymizu the Keeper. I used the text at the top of the initial post as the blurb that appears on the main page of the site, but please let me know if you want something else.

I'd also like to be added to the waiting list if a slot opens.

Duly noted about the waiting list.

I've validated all of your players who posted in this thread except for SisqDave, who I'm not sure is actually one of them. I'm concerned it might be a spammer. Could you confirm whether or not he is one of the players you're expecting? Or he could post something that would let us know that he's here to play?

He’s good. Well, mostly good. ;-)
I’m sorry. I thought my response to him would help you with that. I see now that I didn’t use his full username. My fault.
