I'm really enjoying this so far! It's a terrific group and everyone's really going to town with the situation.

Can't wait for the next part!

First: OMG ... Jon. Certainly in top form for this. Love how much of a sleeze he is. Great group.
Second: (I'm trying not to spoil anything.) I love the premise for this. This was an awesome scenario. It really could have gone in so many ways. There was also a bizarrely erotic sensuality combined with grotesqueness. If you think about it, it clashes with the otherworldly nothingness and lack of passion. The two heighten one another quite nicely. Great job.

Thanks, Joe. The Space Between is very quickly becoming one of our most-commented-upon scenarios. Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for listening.

Ok future listeners, as Joe said above, ditto; you have been warned. :-)

Call of Cthulhu is suppose to be dark and all; but this group, this time, has stepped it up and made it darker and sleazier.

What I found interesting from the git-go, was it seemed that just like the podcast Dockside Dogs, the Keeper was put on vacation as the players seemed to run the podcast between them. Excellent!

But on the bad side, but not that bad, was that it seemed to jump pretty fast that it was getting a bit confusing every once in awhile.

Thanks to previously made films showing what was performed in the editing room made the scene even more eerier and creepy as you could visualize it.

Looking forward to the unraveling and unpeeling (MMMWWWHAHAHA) in the next part.


Cheers

Scenarios where the Keeper (especially when that's me) can just sit back and let the Player's run are my favorite. Thanks for listening Jonathon.
