A New Keeper Is Born!

Heya, I like it so far, I did have one suggestion for Lindsay though. You can make people seem more Texan by throwing in "Yee Haw's" here and there. That's mostly my own stereotype but I can't resist.
Or a "pard'ner"... *snickers*
I'd fall over laughing if I heard that...

Here are some of my thoughts;
Lindsay was an excellent Keeper - her NPC portrayals were good. I also liked the fact that the players kept role-playing when she was away from the table. Looking forward to the first combat of this campaign.
A quick glance at Chaosium’s entry for Tatters on their web site reveals one of this campaign’s locations as Bombay so I’m looking forward to Lindsay’s Indian accent (start watching those episodes of Goodness Gracious Me and practicing Linday! :lol: )
During the game I kept thinking they were playing in the Victorian Era - I don’t know why this is, as I know Tatters is set in the Roaring twenties, perhaps my brain is due for a service!
Richard was brilliant in his portrayal of madness. I like the bit about Archer’s shadow slipping away and when Archer tried to play along, pandering to Cpt. Joseph De Laval’s beliefs. The Captain’s response of "Don’t be stupid" was also very funny.
The fact than most of the party have limps/walking sticks is very amusing - I'd christen them 'team hobble' - how on earth are they going to run away when the horrors attack? Lets hope their aren't many stairs in this campaign.
Perhaps it's a cunning ploy by RPGMP3.COM to get sponsorship from a stairlift company! :lol:
Yes! I can see the advertising campaing now in my mind's eye;
Out of breath and limping Investigator clambers into stairlift chair
"When escaping form Eldritch abominations I use Stanner Stair lifts”
The Investigator presses button on the armrest and chair starts to crawl slowly up the stairs.
The Chasing Abomination, momentarily stunned by the superior performance of the stair lift turns to the camera and says; "I must get one of those for my mother-in-law her tenticles aren't what they used to be."
The Abomination easily catches up with slowly moving chair lift and ignoring the multiple blows from the investigator's walking stick and eats the investigator.
The bloodsplattered chair reaches the top of the stairs and the Abomination demonstrates how easy it is to clean by wiping it down with a cloth while picking bits of investigator out from between his teeth
(Cheezy voice over by Thora Herd sound-a-like) "Stanner stair lift wipe clean model now available for non-Euclidian staircases”
Papakee’s comments above I echo, letting the player’s flesh out minor NPC is very good - anything involving silly voices is brilliant (Hal's; french goblins, Ratul, the Halfling Miner, and any of Paul's characters instantly spring to mind )
And on the subject of silly voices can we, pretty please, have more of Steve’s sublime performance as Doris the maid, she reminds me of the unhinged pepperpot women than Terry Jones used to specialise in.
More episodes please!

I like it when slang is used in a game, its extremely evocative. I have fond memories of using the weird slang in Judge Dredd (Perps, juve, cubes, Drokk!, etc.)
What is the name of the book that the players are refering to that contains Twenties British slang (e.g. cuspidor for spitoon)?
