A small group means a shorter session this week and a side quest intended to focus on the players' backup knights. Instead, we learn a valuable lesson in what happens when squires try to act above their station and put their lives on the line in the same manner as their lords...

This week, we wrap up family histories and jump into creating the Player-squires that comprise the first generation of our new campaign! At the end, a short vignette ("The Lost Hound") plants seeds that will reap many a strange and bitter harvest in the years and decades to come...

For those wishing to skip the nuts and bolts of character creation, we introduce the squires and begin our little mini-intro scenario at 2:02:30.

[Pendragon] A Matter of Cornwall: Family History
02:16:17

cornwall-banner.png

 

We kick off a new run of The Great Pendragon Campaign, this time told from the Cornish perspective. This short(er) episode is all about going through the intertwined family histories of the ancestors of our first crop of Player-knights as they navigate the tumultuous events of the fifth century in Cornwall and Brittany.

 

Episodes like this aren't always everyone's cup of tea. There's a lot of deep background here, along with ongoing character conceptualization, but if you would rather wait for next week's (first proper) session, you may safely do so.

Sacred Time in Glorantha is a time of the year when the world dies only to be renewed again.

In a similar vein, this session marks the somewhat premature end of our Runequest venture—but the beginning of new opportunities. We talk about the whys and wherefores at the top of the session, and what's coming up next, then get into a tumultuous bit of shamanic spirit journeying that sees our adventurers on the wrong end of history—and sets things up for their eventual return...

02:14:39

Des and David L. were on the road this weekend, and with the cats away the rest of the EOR gathered at the other David's place to play!

For this outing, Schimpff chose to run the one-page RPG The Witch Is Dead, whose premise is easily summarized: "You are a magical woodland creature, and your beautiful witch mistress has been killed, and you are about to set out on a murder-revenge adventure in the human lands."

Let's see what kind of shenanigans ensue, shall we?

[Monsterhearts] Session Four: "Hungry Like the Wolf"
02:32:05

Lucien goes to a Dumpster Wölf show at a house party and then gets the sheriff all hot and bothered. Oh, the other characters do some stuff too, I guess. Darkest Self, sex moves, blah, blah, blah. Let's not lose sight of the star of this show, okay?

We also set a very high (or perhaps low) bar for just how horrific we're going to get... Even if you normally skip these sorts of sessions, this one is well worth a listen!

In this, our penultimate session of this campaign arc, we bounce through a wild Winter Phase and begin tying up loose ends in an abbreviated but satisfying session revolving around Bradamant's search for decent husband material.

[Esoteric Short Order] Harlem Unbound: "The Contender—A Love Story" (Part I)
01:04:13

harlem_unbound_cover2.png

This month, a travel/illness-reduced crew is taking Darker Hue Studios' Harlem Unbound for a spin with the scenario "The Contender—A Love Story" by Bob Geis. The book is dual-statted for both Trail of Cthulhu and Call of Cthulhu; we opted for the latter system. The scenario is a slow-burn noir procedural that builds ever more to a truly unsettling climax, and we think you're going to really enjoy the ride.

In this first episode, "Sparring with the Champ," we meet our investigative duo and follow them to the Cotton Club, where they take a job from former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson to look into a mysterious death in the boxing ring.

[Scrolls and Swords] "Crit This!" One-Shot
01:32:30
'Tis the season for unexpected travel plans and unexpected colds, and a combination of both scuttled our scheduled Pendragon session this week. But fear not! We shall return next week, come hell or high water (or stuffy noses).

This week, instead, we'd like to share a recent session from our sister AP feed, Crit This!. It's David Schimpff's other regular group, and if you enjoy the Esoteric Order's shenanigans, do go give them a look - there's a fair amount of incestuous back-and-forthing between the players.

Case in point, our selection from the Crit This! archives is a recent session Dave ran for EoRP regular Jade and Crit This! regulars Russell and Scott, and is the one-page fantasy RPG Scrolls and Swords, based off of onesevendesign's Lasers and Feelings RPG. Dave sends along the warning that the session was heavily influenced by Adventure Time and features a candy break in the middle...

[Call of Cthulhu] Crack'd and Crook'd Manse (Again!)
01:54:10
There's an old holiday tradition, not oft practiced in these debased times, of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve.

Now it's a few days after that date, but - as the Esoteric Order takes this weekend off for the winter holidays (and to roll their skill checks and make their aging rolls) - we wanted to present you, the listener, with a treat in the vein of that august Christmas Eve activity.

Esoteric Order members David S. and Scott co-host a biweekly midnight radio show at our local college radio station, and every once in a while they turn their microphones over to doing a real-time live-play of an RPG scenario. This past Thanksgiving Eve, they invited some friends of the Order to join them in a play-through of "Crack'd and Crook'd Manse", a scenario the Order has tackled once before.

So please enjoy this holiday treat; the usual Great Pendragon Campaign posts will resume next week.

[Cthulhu-a-thon '14] Episode Three: Progeny's Nightmare - World of Darkness: Innocents
03:30:07
It's been a long-standing tradition among certain of the more august members of the Esoteric Order to do up a big horror gaming extravaganza around Halloween every year. Since time immemorial, this event has been referred to as the "Call-of-Cthulhu-a-thon"...even if no actual CoC is run that day.

Last year, we did one big six-hour scenario. This year we decided to go for the "rock festival" approach and offer several smaller scenarios over the course of a day and let folks filter in and out as the mood struck them.

The third and final scenario, run by David S., is a homebrew for World of Darkness: Innocents based on a nightmare he had recently.

Fair warning: the fact that this came at the end of a long day of tense horror gaming and near-constant junk food snacking, along with all of us getting into the characters of playing 12-year-olds, made for some pretty punchy gameplay. Still and all, lots of creeptastic fun was to be had. Enjoy!

This continued up to the year of the siege of Badon Hill, and of almost the last great slaughter inflicted upon the rascally crew." - Gildas
