Roleplaying Game Journals

In the spring of 1877, three men arrived in the village of Saltmarsh in Washington Territory. Each of them had goals and aspirations of their own, but they would soon be thrown together by the strange events that surrounded that isolated town on the Pacific coast. Soon, others joined them.

On December 7, we continued the Down Darker Trails campaign online, tentatively named Pacific Northwest Fears. We’re starting off using the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons scenario “The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh” and now “Danger at Dunwater” as well as the D&D campaign “Ghosts of Saltmarsh” adapted to Call of Cthulhu in the American west.

This session saw the investigation of the village of Dunwater, allegedly abandoned for 10 years but now inhabited by a tribe of natives much like those already encountered by the investigators. Other things lurk in the village as well.

This session saw the investigators participate in a feast with their newfound allies, the Quinoat, and have to perform a sacred oath in order to appease the high priest of the village.

In the spring of 1005 A.D., the small group of fugitives stopped in London at the request of Father Paul, who asked them to look in on a servant who was there. They find strange things happening near Bishopsgate in London.

On January 22, I ran another online game of Cthulhu Dark Ages, as the investigators head back to England. This session saw us play the original “London in Absentia."
