YEAH!!! The Jim intro!!! WOOHOO!!!

I must of spaced on the other podcasts, but I did notice on this episode that the characters’ occupations are missing.

Gary as Peter Peterson; 33 year old Occult Author from New York
Jim as Basil St. John-Smythe; 53 year old British Historian/Archeologist
Jonathan as Jack Gordon; Former Bureau of Investigation Agent, now a Private Investigator in Boston
Randall as George Freeman; Mid-thirties retired Soldier, now a mechanic

That is so AWESOME Jon that you are going to make five random players the pre-gen’s for this adventure.

Bummer that the author dropped the adventure and quit writing Call of Cthulhu adventures.


Now onto the show…

Interesting that the name of this adventure is a bit longer than the painting’s name; why not just the same?

OMG!!! Basil is soooo ready to throw up. LOL - Ruuuuuuuuuun!!!

Poor George - Sleeping behind the hotel in a big box? - After eating all of the bread with the pats of butter. LOL

UGH!!! 70 hours of rail-time.


Jon did an awesome job with the smooth reading of this adventure as well as the players not acting like Friday night drunks. Information was relayed smoothly and understandably, unless you think that “I shutter” is considered “I shot her.” LOL

Hey Jonathan!

Thanks for the great comment; I glad you enjoyed the game. As for the title of the painting versus the name of the adventure, I've always enjoyed little discrepancies like that in the books I read, so this was my little homage to that literary element.

And I concur, the players were amazing!!!
