    Default Hoplathemighty's Paper Chase OOC

    Greetings Hoplathemighty, and welcome back to the world of Call of Cthulhu, a world of horror, mystery, and wonder. Here you shall take on the role of an intrepid Investigator of the Unknown (or Investigator for short), while I shall be the Keeper of Arcane Lore (or the Keeper).

    Now that you've understood the basic rules and themeatic aspects of the game, having played the introductory adventure. Prepare to journey onto your first freeform scenario -- Paper Chase! This is a mystery set in 1921 where you are the main character. For the purposes of guiding you, I may very rarely make small notes at the bottom of my posts, but these will be far more rare than before, so I hope you're prepared to think for yourself!

    Anyway, without further ado, tuck yourself in, grab a bowl of popcorn, and join the In-Character!

    Exciting! Just one question, I was too distracted in the moment to ask, but having escaped and taken time to reflect, does Henry recognize that triangle symbol the members of Emberhead adorned themselves with?

    Whoops, wrong thread!

    Spoiler: Successful Occult Roll
    Show
    Several religious bodies utilize stars in some format as a depiction of devotion to the sky. However, the eye in the middle is a strange development. Such insignia would mean that there's a watcher in the skies? In addition, there's also the possible interpretation that the star is similar to that of a pentagram and the eye is trapped inside? Meaning that the star binds the watcher in the skies? It's unclear exactly what purpose it would be used for.

    Is this meeting with Mr. Merriweather an informal interview? I'm a little confused, I thought the university passed on my job.

    Essentially instead of you automatically receiving the position, the Miskatonic administration wants to have an interview with you. This discussion with Mr. Merriweather is completely unrelated (he just happens to have been a professor of cultural anthropology). You haven't been passed over, just sort of put back into the waiting list if that makes sense. I apologize that this was unclear.

    Also, did you ever make that Occult roll?

    Ah okay, I understand now, sorry about that I thought it was more of a left out in the rain sort of situation.

    No, but I shall roll it now!

    Well, that's definitely a failure. Occult is 40

    Where is Henry Brant staying? Is that way my discretion?

    So as of right now you currently have no place to stay.

    All right, to the hotel we go! Question, is there a time frame that this narrative occupies? As in, if I don't do something now, will I not be able to do it later?

    Erm... tell me what your idea is first, and then I'll decide. I think I might be a little bit confused about what you mean.

    Well I was considering going to the Miskatonic University to inquire about Mr. Merriweather before retiring for the evening. If I don't do that this night could I do it the next day?

    Oh, yeah, you can do that. Albeit... it's around 8-o'-clock at this point. It's highly unlikely that the administration would be open for questions regarding previous faculty, but you could definitely check it out tomorrow after your interview (which I'll write up now).

    Yes indeed, let's depart and investigate this robbery/disappearance. What kind of finances and belongings does Henry have at this point?

    Given that you lost a decent amount in the whole Emberhead incident, you've managed to get back to the point where you were before. Regardless, you can purchase mostly whatever you want, as long as it makes sense. So... do you wish to bring anything with you?

    I think I'd like to get at least a bag/pack to carry things, a journal or notebook, some writing utensils (pens, pencils, maybe charcoal), a compass if one can be found, a utility knife (like swiss army), some food that is practically nonperishable and a canteen or bottle for water.

    Sure! That's more than fine. You're not purchasing too much, nor are you purchasing anything extraordinarily expensive, so we should be good.

    Awesome sauce. I'll go ahead and post in the IC now.

    I apologize for the lack of a response. I've been sick and so I haven't really been able to formulate anything more than the responses for Alone Against the Flames given that they're mostly pre-scripted.

    I just realized that my IC post came after your follow-up post! My mistake! Let me read it over and I'll have a response.
