Sounds good!

Where you all meet will depend on whether Alice and Henry do more research at the library. If Isadora picks up Norman, it will take about 2 - 3 hours to get to Arkham by car if they leave immediately.

Tabs and evil_scientist, please feel free to read the other thread if you haven't already, to get updated on the story.

Where would you all like to meet in Arkham? I can start the new thread from there once you're all ready. Let me know when you're done with your existing threads.

You've found Albert, well done. We just have to finish things off. I hope you have enjoyed it, although I feel I made it too easy with the monster. The dice were on your side in this one though. I was making constitution rolls against you all throughout due to the presence of the spores, and you stood up pretty well to it.

There are some questions though that have arisen, namely who Albert was working with regarding the nature of the properties of the fungus, and what it could be used for. If you're interested in exploring it further, we can continue in the next scenario, which will be A Little Knowledge from the Miskatonic University sourcebook, and which is set on the campus of that esteemed institution. Let me know if you'd like to try it.

I'd definitely be up for it!

I don't think the final encounter was too easy, we were just very lucky. Had the dice not gone our way, or had Isadora not been carrying an alien weapon, we'd have been in big trouble. Most of us had good CON scores, except for Isadora, who had good luck, so we were well equipped to resist the spores and the gas (and even then, I only barely made that last roll). We also got two critical hits in the fight with the creature, which helped considerably.

Yes, please, I'd love to continue playing with this cast of characters!

Oh yes, we got really lucky this time. With our SAN rolls too. And Isadora proved to be quite the steampunk action girl 8-)

That's a cool pic!

I've had a fun time but I want out. Board games are my thing now, much more so than rpgs.

I’m sorry to hear that Tabs, but thanks for playing. If we have another adventure in the future, you’re welcome to join.

I should have had the creature attack with more tendrils. He went too easy on you, and suffered the consequences. It won’t happen again…

andyw666 will join us for the new scenario to reprise his Balzac character.

So I think we’re finished then, thanks for playing everyone.

You can roll for skill improvements. Each character gets 1d2 SAN for saving Albert, and 1d6+1 for killing the beast.

The characters’ reputations have increased, so you can roll 1d4 for increasing Credit Rating.

I’ll announce the new scenario once innsmouth has decided his plans.
