I used to play CoC (oo-er) years ago.
Was a fun game.
Do people still got mad?

I once winged a huge story revolving around a nasty fishing town.

Always found it hard to work out which inventions and stuff was around in the CoC time though....

I must confess that I have NEVER played Cthulhu. However, I still look forward to listening to this audio.

Very good. Lindsay, you managed the game quite well. :) And it sounds like it's going to be a fun group. I demand more! ;)

Midway through listening and its very good. I really like the way the players jumped in and took the role of NPCs. I have played game where an assistant GM would step in as an NPC, but never thought of letting the players do it for minor personalities. A good idea that will really help my games has come out of this audio. KUDOS.

Oddly enough I just finished a short story that dealt with this exact Mythos piece (the sanity-draining play of DOOM). I'll have to dig that anthology out again now.

Thanks for the new audio goodies. You have no idea how often this keeps me sane when I'm spending 50-60 hours a week auditing thousands of pages of legal blah so people with no credit can get hosed on a loan refinance.

And my coworkers have no idea why I randomly laugh hysterically in the middle of the day with my headphones on. I think between this and the beaver testicle rant in the Banewarrens they're half ready to have me committed.

LMFAO...

Yeah... I remember that one... *snicker*

Poor Lindsay, having to put up with these people...

Christ, she MARRIED one (i suspect she was drugged)...

There have been many, many times I have had to bite my tounge LITTERALLY to stop from bursting out laughing on the bus ride to school (i swear that insane old crow has issues with ANY noise... she's BATTY i tell you)...

I'm sure people wonder why I smirk most of the ride home...

1/2 through 38 of WLD...

Then I have some stuff for YSDC to listen to... *sigh*

Lindsay, I hope you DO take time off to get better... Do you have any idea how much my other podcasts are suffering because I can't listen to them??

What do the non-Patrons think? Anyone had a chance to listen to it yet?

:D

It's a good start. Lindsay seems like she'll be capable as a Keeper. Masks over on Y-S.com was a good re-introduction to CoC. It'll be fun to listen to another take on the game and its world.

Just finished listening to the first session of the Tatters of the King

Congratulations on the DMing. I am quiet the fan. Dming is hard but CoC is probably the hardest. Doing fantastic. :P

Love the group , having a hard time keeping a straight face when i listen to it.

Ah, but after a while, you start to crave the fear, court it, nuture it... and that's when you get caught walking naked down the central reservation of the M1... :P

Lindsay Glad i could help with the kind words. There are many more were that came from.

Just remember

Fear leads to Hate, Hate leads to Anger, Anger leads to Fear.. no no thats not it. Try that again

Fear lead to Hate, Hate leads to Anger, Anger leads to Hunger, Hunger leads to the refrigerator.. Ah close enough :lol:

Keep up the awesome work

and like THING said it is the players job to know the fear, so make them pay. :wink:

Aw, hey! Great American accent, Lindsay! After Masks of Nyarlathotep, I'd been convinced you guys couldn't do that! As swj719 said, you came off sounding more like a valley girl than an educated novelist from Texas--which made the character incredibly unlikeable--but you definitely pulled off "American".

And Hal: Great goddamned character. Utter asshole, but definitely great.

And whoever went insane--I'm a little fuzzy on which military man it was--did it beautifully. Great improvised weirdness.

I'm so glad the long-promised new game is Call of Cthulhu. As the Masks podcast demonstrated, the tendency for things to go very badly for the PCs can make this game of eldrich horror completely hilarious.

EDIT: Oh, my mistake. I just got to episode 22 of Masks, and it turns out that Helen and Abi can also do excruciating--and completely convincing--valley girl dialects. Jesus, what horrible movies are you people watching?

Apologies for cross-posting from Yog-Sothoth.com.

Having just played through Tatters myself I really enjoyed listening to your first session.

Lindsay - you are doing a great job. The only slight piece of criticism I might have (and it is very slight) is that your speeches and description all seem to start with an apology for not doing it right. Save your apologies for when you actually screw up! I especially enjoyed your Talbot, and I don't just mean the accent. He seemed to give the first session just the right tone of dislocation and unease.

The only other slightly odd thing about your game is that thanks to deaths, madness and a GM's insistence that we play with a narrative coherence (ie no new characters turning up and saying "your party looks like it needs a wizard, mind if I join you?") I ended spending most of our campaign playing Jean Hewart. It was VERY unsettling to hear Hal/Paul flirt with her.
