Call of Cthulhu One-shot at PAX East 2013

Hi all,

Per the main thread , I am thinking of running a 6-person one-shot of Call of Cthulhu, probably on Saturday evening. I expect it to take 3-4 hours, and to help with mood, will be limiting the session to just 6 folks (plus, perhaps, a co-Keeper). I've run this particular module with a group of 5 first-time players, and all that I ask is (a) don't be a jerk, (b) help set the mood and ensure that we're all having fun.

You absolutely don't need to know how to play CoC to join in. Pre-gens will be provided, and the rules are pretty straightforward. I'll provide more info as we get closer to the game, but drop a note here if you're interested.

Slot 1: Tanglebones
Slot 2: imbiginjapan
Slot 3: Mrs. imbiginjapan
Slot 4: grobstein
Slot 5: -
Slot 6: -

If anyone has a space we could use that's not on the main gaming floor -- ideally, somewhat private, quiet, and where I could set up a small sound system, dim the lights somewhat, and set up a table/space for rolling dice -- it would be warmly appreciated.

Me and my wife would love to join in. It's been years since we've had a good spooky RPG session.

Unfortunately we'd only be able to do this Saturday or Sunday, however.

Very interested! I have my con-ticket and everything!

Both added!

Leaning towards Saturday; I will not be there on Sunday.

Saw your post on this in the main thread, HipGamer, saying that it would be hard to play an atmospheric game like this in a fluorescent-lit hangar or similar con-space. You definitely have a point. I just thought I would add that (last time I was there), the side hallways of the con with the bean bag chairs where a little bit more comfortable and less institutional-feeling than e.g. the tabletop areas, and might be worth considering.

Or it might be worth seeing if there's a local bar that could accommodate a game during a slow 3-4 hours.

Certainly understand if this isn't going to work though.

If Call of Cthulhu doesn't work out, I'm hoping to have my Kickstarter of tremulus arrive before too long; might require a bit less space than proper CoC, for a similar thematic game.

I've run a couple of games of tremulus for my local group already. It's gone surprisingly well.
