New York Road Trip Adventure WIP

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

I’ve already posted a few bits of the material for the New York Road Trip adventure for Trail of Cthulhu I’ve been working on.  I’d got the basic form of the adventure in mind – a pretty open sandbox affair where the player’s investigators follow a series of clues left by a previous group who […]

The Blog Post that Ran Away with Itself

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Amongst the documents are the “Ask Zelda” columns which might make good handouts for a Laundry Files game. There’s […]
