Closed game for existing players only. Cthulhu Hack - Pulp Style
It’s 1986 and time for that long promised retirement with cocktails and pool parties. Only the very best people get into Sunny Dale Homes* it’s going to be the time of your life….
This is an invite to the first session of the D&D 5e campaign Driftwood Rampart. The group is currently at capacity so please contact the game organiser before you RSVP.
The Strangers have arrived in the City of Driftwood Rampart, the city is in the grip of the Serpent Fester and its sickly yellow-green smog soon drove them indoors. In the Houndswell Tavern the group share pints of rum, ales, and sausages of unspecific origin.
Approached by competing underworld figures about a job that involves sneaking aboard the Paragons Folly, a trading ship under quarantine. The ship is reportedly carrying a small fortune in uncut gemstones. The strangers agree to the job from Molly Mikloon a local figure of fearful reputation within the criminal underworld [often known as “The Molly”].
Aboard the vessel the crew and passengers are missing save for a few individuals who stumble about the ship as screaming zombies which bleed a halo of pale-yellow light. The captain’s ledger indicates that the ship had smuggled more than illicit gems and had recently been used to smuggle a piece of art for an unknown party. Viewing this art seemed to have a disturbing impact on the mental health of the ship’s captain.
Having fought their way into the ships partially flooded hull the party find the hidden stash of uncut gems. It was at that moment from beneath the water emerged a vast amoeba of melted flesh, hair, eyes, and teeth.
Can the Strangers escape the vessel with their prize before the monstrous bulk consumes them pulling their torso’s and limbs into its ever hungry mass?
I'm tempted to have a bash at running a short game, and as I'm a big fan of Jim Butcher, I want to try the Dresden Files RPG with the newer, simplified rules.
If enough people are interested, I'll write some notes up on the setting.
