    Default (CoC Now) Super 8

    1. What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?

    Call of Cthulhu Now (Modern), using the 6th Ed Core book. (I think 5th is pretty similar, so if you are using that book, you should be fine.)

    2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?


    The game is set in New York City. The module was written in 2004 and technology has changed since then.

    WARNING: The background of this module involves human trafficking, though there is none of that in the module itself.
    WARNING: This module involves the existence of a snuff film.

    3. How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?

    4-5

    4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?

    OOTS

    5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?

    Created as in the Core Book

    6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?

    Based on character type

    7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?

    The module assumes at least one of the PCs has a connection to law enforcement. However, it is better if the PCs have a mixture of backgrounds.

    8. What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?

    Everyone is human

    9. By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?

    Roll two sets of complete stats per the Core book and pick which set you prefer. However, you must take the full set - you cannot (say) take STR from Roll#1 and INT from Roll#2.

    10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?

    The modules assumes none of the PCs are cultists. So no cultists. If you want your PC to have more than the normal starting Cthulhu Mythos skill (and can justify it), that is fine.

    11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?

    N/A

    12. Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?


    Make them in the thread

    13. Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.

    As I said above, this module was written in 2004. Technology has changed. Please limit yourself to knowledge, skills, and technology that would have existed 15 years ago

    14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?

    I want to know who your character is. I don't need an extensive background, but a little about who you are.

    15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?

    More investigation than combat. Combat likely will occur.

    15. Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, or will you be allowing access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?

    Please limit yourself to the Core book, as that is what I have. If you MUST have something from another book, ask and I'll see if I can find it.

    I love me some call of Cthulhu, I even have have a hardcopy of the 6e handbook! So are we rolling our stats down the line like the book says or can we select our stats based on the rolls (except edu and size/int since they're different?)

    So I know it's a CoC game, but what would you rate your lethality 1-10 as a GM? Lol I've played a couple irl games and a good friend was so bad at murdering characters that we usually went into a game with 3-4 characters already made.

    Combat in CoC is more "swingy" than D&D or Pathfinder. However, it happens less.

    This is a module that I've run with my RL group. They went into combat a few times, but they had time to plan and no one came close to dying. I do not set out to kill PCs when I run a game. It CAN happen (dice are like that), but it isn't likely.

    Initially, I had no problem with this. Then it hit me that any subsequent player would want to be able to do something similar and it could get confusing. So I came up with another idea.

    Do a complete reroll and pick which set you prefer. However, you must take the full set - you cannot (say) take STR from Roll#1 and INT from Roll#2.

    I will edit the OP to allow all players to roll 2 sets of stats.

    As I said in the OP, the module assumes one of the investigators has a law enforcement background (although there is a way to work around it.)

    Still open for interest, I hope? I have 7e CoC but I think I know where to find the other editions core rule book on my old hard drive somewhere.

    I hadn't had a chance to look at it until now, but I see that it is. There is a 5th/6th Ed Modern sheet, which is what I thought OdeMx was referring to when he asked.

    OdeMx, that is the wrong edition sheet. I am sorry for the confusion about the sheet. Please transfer your character to the correct sheet.

    OK, a few questions...

    1) What do you mean by "double check doors?"

    2) You have a checkmark next to Fast Talk, but no level

    3) What are "subseven," "whackamole," and "ultrasurf?"

    4) Are the artifacts just fluff or do they have a purpose?

    5) What weapon skill do you plan to use? You don't have a weapon listed, and can use unarmed, but it doesn't look like you built for melee.

    2) You have a checkmark next to Fast Talk, but no level.
    Forgot to transfer the number from the 7th edition sheet to this one, ill do it when I go back to my office next tuesday.

    3) What are "subseven," "whackamole," and "ultrasurf?" Sub7 and Whack where Trojan hourses that where hard to remove from an infected PC back in 2000s.

    Ultrasurf in an Internet censorship circumvention product, still very useful for places where internet is restricted.

    4) Are the artifacts just fluff or do they have a purpose?
    Works just as good as a cross, david star, all seeing eye....

    5) What weapon skill do you plan to use? You don't have a weapon listed, and can use unarmed, but it doesn't look like you built for melee.
    Is it going to be Pulp? Didnt knew I could choose.... Ill use a Derringer and a Desert eagle.
    Let me know what you think, if the character doesnt fit the adventure just let me know, no problem.
