Yes, please join us! I'm playing the aunt of Elisabeth Grey (from Forbidden Journey) in this one, and right now I'm the only player.

Exactly, I had originally enlisted Lee as assistant KP because I wanted to incorporate a few side storylines into the plot as well because 3+ people said they're interested...and then most of them kinda dropped off the bandwagon.

Oh, the dainty Mss Grey, I can't say I remember liking her :)

I'd love to join.
I'll roll and write up by Monday.
Any particulars I should be mindful of?

There's not a lot of actual limits, just make sure that your character have an intrinsic motive to join and some sort dark, terrible secret since the antagonistic mythos creature will mess with your character's mind at multiple points of the game. I'll need to alter certain parts of the rules as well to re-adjust for the small number of players. Obviously, the sandbox dreamland side will have to be scrapped, and the whole serial killers thing will feel very anti-climatic when the entire scenario is meant to play out over only four acts.

Sorry for the delay, but with the sudden snow storm, we've had a bit of an increase in work load.
I'll get on it this week.

OOC:   sorry for not making any posts here recently. Had too many things going on. I have not forgotten about this! I just can’t access Google Docs (which contained, like, 95% of the story for the scenario) in China. Give me a few days or so and I promise I’ll come back with a long post. :(

Hey guys, I know that I haven't been very active in my own game nor have I really being very clear about the overarching story thus far. If you have any non-plot related queries or feedback thus far, I'd love it. I feel like I'm not doing as well as a KP is supposed to in a situation like this. Did I set the mood well? Anything I could improve upon in IC chapter one? Maybe some confusion about the NPCs that I've introduced or the role that William Isaac Hewitt shall play in this story after becoming an NPC? Please do ask questions.

:)

Everything is fine as far as I am concerned.

Maybe it would be worth it to try to recruit a few more players ?

Aye, I agree with the above.
This is still very much the introduction, so don't worry.
A few more souls to the party would indeed liven it up a little.

If everyone, and especially the Keeper, agrees, I could try to recruit more players.

No worries. You’re welcome to recruit more people to join, it’s just that once the prologue is done, they would either need to be train passengers from a different railway line, or a foreigner that’s lived here for a long time, or a Nat resident.

I'm fine with the game so far too, and I also think recruiting new players is a good idea.

So I posted this on the Call of Cthulhu forum of Facebook:

This is a call for recruiting players to join the Call of Cthulhu 6e or 7e version of Dead Men Walking. This scenario takes place in China during the year 1920, and is just starting now. It is played on the Play by Post YSDC dedicated forum.
The prerequisites are as follows:
1) You need to be the owner of a copy of the Call of Cthulhu 6e or 7e Rules (pdf or paper).
2) You must be able to post on average once every 48h-72h (2-3 times a week), excluding significant real-life issues (contact directly The Keeper by PM if that is the case).
3) You must abide by the Community Rules of YSDC ( Short version: Use common courtesy in your posts & Respect others).
Here is the link to the YSDC forum site guidelines:
viewtopic.php
Here is the link to the Keeper of this scenario:

Let's see what happens ... :)

I saw that post on the fb page. This'll be my first PbP adventure, but looking forward to some Cthulhu action. I'm kinda new to message boards in general so hopefully I'll learn the controls quickly.

I'll roll for stats here since this seems to be the place to do it.
