So what is your “M” name?

Wow! What a great “get right to the point” adventure.

Listened to a two hour, part one of two, podcast where it was nothing but talking to the NPC’s about life and such. It was not until thirty minutes into the second part that we were finally introduced into something weird going on. Some of the players thought it would be funny if the five hour podcast turned into nothing but a red herring. Thinking of what they said and what Shannon had said about red herrings, I could see his fun in running something like that.

Shannon is doing an awesome job as the Keeper; guess some people are going to be out of a job here soon.

What I am going to be curious to see is how Shannon is going to be able to stretch this out to 21+ hours, since the objective has been put in motion at around 30 minutes.

A lot of investigating, a lot of talking, a lot of…

We shall see…

The game is afoot.

Hey Jonathan,

M = Mac as I'm known in the con circuit.

This was an attempt to put forth a sophisticated clue trail for the Skype lads as they seem to encounter a lot of really basic clue adventures.

Thanks for the reply. I will get to your other comments later. I see that the heavy clue trail put you to sleep. For shame! That's the only way you have a chance of surviving or completing the mission. ;)

Best,

Shannon

P.S. This heavily modified scenario was intended for 4 hours a session so a 2 hour session made this more challenging and because people had to review it made the overall scenario longer.

P.P.S. I'm on hiatus from the Skype of Cthulhu but I still check in every now and then and I'm on their Google group as well.

I haven't run anything else for them and most of my focuses are on The Great Pendragon Campaign (with podcasts and other details):

I also ran some horror scenarios (one written by Jim) that got put up as podcasts on the Miskatonic University Podcast site.
