About the adventure

Last night, an assassinated accountant reanimated in a Harlem speakeasy, among others. Clearly the Silver Trumpet's effect. And it's your job to retrieve it, preferably before a second Innsmouth Incident occurs. --- About the Module --- Dead Man Stop is a 1920s CoC adventure leaning into Harlem's Renaissance and the Jazz Age. In it, you are part of Delta Green, a government conspiracy fighting the mythos. Your latest job: secure the Silver Trumpet before it starts a zombie apocalypse. However, mythos empowered mobsters are a step ahead. Can you catch up?

Gameplay details

As part of onboarding for the game, I send players my Line & Veils and ask for theirs in return. Which are then confirmed at the beginning of the session as part of a mini-session 0. During the game, if anything disturbs you, please tell me, leave an "X" in the chat, or privately message me. I will then remove the offending or skip past it. Likewise, if you feel the adventure is going in an unsavory direction but use an "N" instead. I will also check in if I notice anything is off.

How will character creation work

Players can make their own character or choose one of 15+ pregenerated characters. If desired and given notice, I can provide assistance with character creation. But anyone who has not chosen by the time the game has rolled around, or given insufficient notice, will have to choose a pregenerated character.
