    Default Gomez's Tatters of the King (Closed)



    TATTERS OF THE KING

    The stars are right
    Hastur's gaze gains brief focus upon the Earth.
    And things change.


    IT IS OCTOBER 1928.

    London is the capital of an empire covering a quarter of the globe and governing one quarter of the human race. The people busy themselves with concerns of politics and government, finance and production, work and recreation. How fragile things are. What ignorance there is.

    There are those who engage in different pursuits — who would see an inhuman power come to Earth such that it would make mundane activity seem like a last twitch before dying.

    Over this winter its taint emerges: the sensitive and the weak feel it first. Few know the source, but some welcome it unconsciously — finding in it an enexamined thrill. Artists’ work is strangely influenced, and they mine this vein of creativity. Many exhibitions this season feature similar images: a social gathering gripped by repressed panic; a lake or marsh cloaked in mist; a presence just off-canvas. New fiction and theatrical releases offer scenes of upheaval and confusion that never reach a climax. Séances and mediumistic exhibitions bring untoward results and end in disruption. Others feel new lines of communication opening; some claim God is talking to them.

    All feel the lure of the stars.

    -------------

    Tatters of the King is a Campaign from Chaosium which pits a group of investigators against the forces of the Great Old One Hastur! The game begins in London but the players will see many a haunted and exotic locales on their hunt to stop the King in Yellow.

    I will require 4 to 6 investigators: ideally one should be a psycho-analyst or alienist and published in this field, and one or more of the others should be involved in the creative arts. It is convenient if the investigators live in or near London, but one or more can be foreign-based if they are prepared to travel to Britain to address events there.

    I will be using the new Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition rules. Don't worry you do not need the rules or even know how to play. I will provide and help with rules and character creation. Choasium has a Quick Starter Rules for free download on their website as well as character sheets.

    This will be a long campaign with a subtle under current of unease and madness. It will be role play heavy and when there is combat it can and most likely will be deadly. Knowledge of Call of Cthulhu or the Cthulhu Mythos is not required.

    For who every joins I hope to provide a enjoyable experience and I have dedicated myself to see this campaign through to the end.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Ooh it's been a while since I've played any CoC, and the last I played was either 5th or 6th edition. This campaign sounds very exciting though!

    One thing: Can I make a .75 Old Man Henderson type character? I'm thinking a survivor from WWI who watched very very very many tragedies happen, and as such has withdrawn into his art. But the tragedies have now followed him into his art.

    Also, probably explosives of some sort.

    LOL didn't know what a Old Man Henderson type was. I had to look it up. WW1 ended about 10 years ago in game. So maybe some thing further back. Zulu Wars? The Sudan Wars? Maybe a he was a career solider who now uses Art to deal with his past. Try not to be too comedic though. While some comedy is great in a game it doesn't really fit in this campaign.

    It's just the myth weavers 6th edition sheet. I had to change the skills around.

    Are you sure that's the luck for this edition? The quick start pdf said 3d6 +5 unless I just blatantly read it wrong. Which I thought was ridiculously low. So maybe I read it wrong.

    (2d6+6)[16] x5 = 80. Heheheheheheh.

    Hi Gomez! Ski-Bird checking in; responding to the ad you posted over at PbP House.

    I'm definitely interested, but I'm heading out of town for a week long business trip tomorrow. If I can wait until next weekend to pitch you a character … count me in!

    Off the top of my head, I could see playing some sort of academic (or perhaps an artist).

    Hey Ski-Bird!!! Sounds good. I have another player coming in from another site. He has a psychologist/alienist I think.

    Hi, Gomez! You must be referring to me. I'll be playing Dr. Clare Mainwaring, a psychoanalyst. I created her for a run of Tatters of the King that was played on a different board, but that one didn't get very far. I sent a PM to the administrator of that board earlier today to try to retrieve the character sheet, and I'm waiting for a reply.
    Zombie Apocalypse - Blood Brothers style CoC
    Space Oddity - CoC meets Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes in 1969 Philadelphia

    The Terror Out of Time
    The Ninth Planet

    I am an absolutely avid Call of Cthulhu fan, and Hastur is my great old one of choice. In a D&D game on here I play a warlock worshipper of Hastur. I would love to try and get into this game!

    Might need to just go with what you have. Double and triple posting to bump your thread like that is sort of against the rules.
