Teen RPG Day

The next teen RPG Day at Gamer's Armory will be at 1pm on Sunday, April 14th. The featured game will be Call of Cthulhu, a modern horror RPG inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Alex Meadows will run the introductory scenario "Mr. Corbit" for 4-7 players.


Spending Spring Break after hitting the books at Miskatonic University during Freshman year the investigators have decided to go home and have fun before second semester starts. Just as Spring Break gets underway Mr. Corbit, an elderly neighbor comes over to bring some vegetables and asks for the students to keep his garden watered while he is away on business.

 

Although the teaser is harmless, the subject matter will be dark. The themes of madness and unspeakable evil means that player characters are as likely to go insane as to die. This may not be suitable for all teens, but more mature teens are likely to have a good time trying something new. No prior experience is required, and characters will be provided.

If more than 7 teens sign up, Jesse Riggs has offered to run a a DND 4e scenario at a second table. That too will require no prior roleplaying experience and pregenerated characters will be provided. It will be in a more common swords-and-sorcery setting.

Note that previous Teen RPG Days have featured Pathfinder and have actually been Pathfinder Society events. There are no plans to run Pathfinder at this specific teen day.

    6 kids showed up. No one went insane but one PC's sanity dropped as low as 5. And 4 of the 6 PCs died in the big fight at the end. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

    As an experiment in something new, it went very well. This was both a different setting and a different rule system. Some of the kids liked the idea of trying different rules, and shadowrun was mentioned. Perhaps it will be featured in the near future.

    As of now there are 6 players signed up. As Alex said up to 7 can play at his table, it does not look like we need a second table. Jesse, thanks for offering to help, but the demand isn't there. I'll update event accordingly.

    I've been interested in the Cthulhu mythos for awhile, but I've never read any of the books. Also, I'm curious... would characters in this rpg run a long campaign, or would there be new characters for every scenario? With the risk of insanity common in Cthulhu stories, it seems like a character could be drastically changed by the end of a campaign.

      Characters can be used over a long campaign. There are several campaign books that can be run for quite some time. Due to sanity playing a large factor in this game, characters can become very different (measured in sanity as well as Cthulhu Mythos points).

      At NCSU I played the same character about 5 times before that campaign petered out. I think we had one fatality and no one went insane. I think I lost around a third of my sanity points, but my character liked to read things....

    for those playing CoC you'll just need to bring your normal gaming supplies (dice, pencil, and paper). The system is d10 based so make sure you at least have a normal d10 (usually numbered 0-9) and a tens numbered d10 (usually numbered 00 to 90). They come in most dice sets :-) Looking forward to introducing you to dear Mr. Corbitt *mischievious grin*

      Call of Cthulhu sounds like fun, and the d10 is an under appreciated die just like the d12 and the less common d3.

      If you like d10s, you should check out 7th Sea, or any ORE game (Reign, A Dirty World, Monsters and Other Childish Things, etc.). It's really fascinating how a rule set can really change the feel of a game setting :)

    I'd like to play CoC.

    I will try, but I do not know I'll RSVP just in case. Planning on playing CoC, never played though, so what do I bring?

    March 6, 2013

    • Doug S.

      You won't need anything special. Just the usual stuff: dice, pencils, etc.

      March 6, 2013

  • Doug S.

    I'll be there, but I won't be playing.
