Call of Cthulhu - Ole Miss and Tonic
« on: February 23, 2013, 02:24:45 pm »
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”

Once the current board DnD game is concluded I will be running a Call of Cthulhu game at the same time (17:00 GMT Saturday). New players welcome.

Call of Cthulhu is a role-playing game based on the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft and other authors. Unlike other RPGs the heroes of call of Cthulhu are not fearless heroes out to slay monsters or battle aliens. They are mere mortals like you and me, pitted against a horrifying cosmic reality which may cost them their sanity and their lives.
I will be running a game set in 1920s America and beyond. More specifics will be decided on once some people have registered an interest.

Post if interested or get in touch with me in IRC or over steam. Mr Wizard can hook you up with a copy of the rules.

Here is my character :Y

Call of Cthulhu
1920's Character Sheet

Investigator Name: Arnold "Arnie" Longstaff
Occupation: Veterinarian
Colleges, Degrees: Kansas City Veterinarian College, Class of 1916
Birthplace: Kaskaskia, Illinois
Gender: Male
Age: 24

Description: Arnie is the eldest of seven siblings, children of Vern Longstaff, a well to do landowner who settled in Illinois. Shunning his inheritance, he sought to make his own fortune far from his domineering father. He graduated top of his class from veterinary college, and decided to strike out on his own rather than return to his family to help work their own farm. Setting down roots in Mississippi, he made a decent living treating the various ailments that afflict the livestock of herdsmen. Hungry for more income, he agreed to help a local horse racing club rig games to maximize their profits, for a tidy sum in return.

Call of Cthulhu
1920's Character Sheet

Investigator Name:Dr. Henri Freeman
Occupation: MD
Colleges, Degrees: University of Kansas, Harvad Medical School
Birthplace: New Orleans, Louisiana
Gender:Male
Age:66


Description: Born with Marfan syndrom, Henri dedicated his life to finding for a way to treat his condition and eventually cure it outright. The first regionally renown doctor, Henri Freeman became very skilled in the art of medicine through both his days at medical school and while practicing throughout his life on both patients and himself. These skills translated to a lucrative medical career, eventually translating into him running a hospital in New Orleans, hoping to channel research funds into finding ways to cure his disease and others like it. As it became evident a cure would not be found in his lifetime, Henri began to delve into other, fringe techniques for finding answers.

Then jump in IRC marty! Wizard has a script that will roll up a character in no time flat and then you just have to choose a career and you're pretty much set.
