aine will be joining us too.

New players might want to read the beginning of the last scenario, 'The Burnt Man', to get some ideas about the society and the other characters.

Except for Captain FitzWilliam, who sadly won’t be joining us on account of going insane and being hacked to death at the end of the last investigation... :cry:

There won't be any hacking in this adventure, I promise. There are, of course, other ways to perish.

I should have told you all earlier, but please list under your character bios any particular items that you have brought with you.

Sorry guys, I’ve been really busy for work and it seems the notorious hay fever here has finally got me, I can barely see. I promise to start a new thread tomorrow.

Stay safe in these difficult times.

We can wait :)

For the first time in over 30 years I am DM-ing 1st edition D&D on the table. It's via Skype and working surprisingly well.

Working from home is not easy, especially with 3-year olds crashing my zooms. Today he clamped a giant clothes peg on me.

That D&D sounds fun aine! I've never played a role-playing game like that :cry:

New thread is up.... now.

I played in an online two-session CoC scenario a few weeks ago, An Egg Out of Time, which was written and run by BenTheRat on Discord and Roll20. It was a lot of fun! I'd never tried playing online like that before, though I had watched a couple of weeks before that when he ran my scenario The Thirteenth Bak'tun.

I’m playing Traveller RPG over Facebook Messenger with friends (replacing our pre-lockdown boardgame evenings). We’re sharing images via Messenger and we’ve got a Google sheet for all the complicated trading(!) but we’re not using anything else.

RPG Traveler, gosh that's an old one too. The amazing thing is that we almost can play just using the audio; our video link is a bit sketchy and it really doesn't matter. We've just watched 'Colour Out of Space' so I'm hoping I can persuade them to play Call of Cthulhu for our next game.
HoneyDog, mine is 5 years old and we are reading The Forest of Doom; things do improve!

It is, we’re using the 1981 version... :o

I’ve not seen The Colour Out of Space yet. I must track it down.

'The Forest of Doom?' Is that one of the old Fighting Fantasy books?
