  1. One Shot- Trail of Cthulhu: The Dance in the Blood (Pt 1 of 2) | Free Podcasts | PodOmatic”

    In this Purist One Shot of Trail of Cthulhu (based on Call of Cthulhu and adapted from Robin Law's Gumshoe Game System by Kenneth Hite), our players find themselves in the English country town of Keswick. While they all have their reasons for being here, they aren't quite sure why this town and this place feels so familiar to them (having never been here before in their recollection). On the wall in The Blackstone Hotel, they discover a photograph from the early 1900's, which features children that look oddly like the investigators…

  4. [Trail of Cthulhu] The Black Drop

    David LarkinsSeptember 8, 2014 at 9:15 PMYeah, the adventure came highly recommended from several sources. We're still not totally sold on the Gumshoe system, but this was a great little scenario regardles. There's no way I'd ever try to run it as anything but a one-shot of course—it's just too deadly! (And they even managed to avoid some of the deadlier parts of the sandbox during Act II.)And yes, we recorded this during the height of Santa Fe's deadly Spring pollen season (yes, there's more than one pollen season out here…), and Jen was getting hit particularly hard during the first evening's recording. Nothing a little prescription-strength antihistamine couldn't fix…Delete
