The Provost’s Office: OOC Chat

When the Provost of Britain’s most prestigious college for boys is bequeathed a parcel of land in a rural backwater he’s never even heard of, the venerable old man calls upon a select number of friends to look into the matter.

Why was Dr. Preedy mentioned in the last will and testament of the Squire of Wergyn Hall? Where are the ruins of St. Wergyn’s church, of which he has become the unexpected custodian? What is the truth behind the strange tales and legends that haunt the benighted countryside?

Set in the 1900s, The Provost of Eton’s Inheritance leads the investigators from the rarefied air of the college cloisters to the wilds of the English Marches, in this 7th edition Call of Cthulhu adventure inspired by one of H.P. Lovecraft literary heroes: the master of the ghost story, M.R. James.

A change of job means I might be distracted for a while, but I’ll keep the game running as best I can.

With the action moving to Wergynstone, it’s a convenient point for anyone who wants to drop out of the game to do so (not that I hope anyone does!)

For the record, Henry Joseph Lewis III's evening wear while extremely formal isn't such a large departure from his normal attire. Just saying.

I think we’ve all earned a break over the Christmas season, so my next update will be in January. Feel free to role play before then if you wish however.
If you have access to UK television, then you might like to know that there’s an adaptation of the MR James tale ‘St. Martin’s Close’ on BBC4 on Christmas Eve.
Have a pleasant one!

I'm going to be away over the festive period and not sure if I'll have internet access. Taking a break seems like an excellent idea. Thanks for the heads up on the MR James adaptation.

Merry Christmas one and all.

Hey all. Back from my holiday hiatus. Ready to roll and hopefully better integrate HJLIII into the group.

Great stuff! To summarise, after a number of unsettling experiences, you are now all together in the village church, talking to the vicar. It is approximately 10pm.

Unless you have anything else to ask the good Reverend, or indeed any other plans (not forgetting a CON roll), I will start the next scene back at the inn, where you may settle down to a blissful sleep.

I thought we were going to try to stop the stones from being stolen tonight, based what Grigori had been told. I'll leave it up to him if he wants us to do something more tonight.

Not a problem if that's the route you want to go down :)

Grigori had indeed got the impression of great urgency. But he's not very sure what to do, beyond stumbling around in the dark dead from tiredness...

So, by all means start a new scene next morning.

Ok. I’ll leave it a day or two in case anyone else has any plans.

My bad, all. I started to write a reply post a week ago, and then 3 family birthdays (including my wife's) and a Super Bowl party happened. I never got back to it. I started from scratch.

No worries mate (happy birthday to your family members and, um, go sports!)

All that remains is for you all to decide upon your next course of action.

Question for the Keeper. How many addresses are we talking about? Would there be too many to commit to memory? Too many to transcribe to a notebook?

The village isn’t a large one, so it wouldn’t take long to write them down.
