Additional Details

How to prepare

You do not need any Call of Cthulhu or Fantasy Grounds experience. Fantasy Grounds makes playing Call of Cthulhu as simple as clicking a button. I will give an intro to both at the start of the session. Players will need to download the free versions of Fantasy Grounds Unity and Zoom client for Windows or Mac. Players do not have to have their cameras on during gameplay. No other material will be necessary.

What I provide

I will provide a fully paid Zoom and Fantasy Grounds Unity license.

Gameplay details

New players are welcome to join. This game will be imaginative and full of mystery. I will ask each player to be "in character." You don't have to have a funny voice or be an actor. But I do ask that you actively engage with each other. As in any role-playing situation, there are boundaries. At no time will I allow any player to make someone feel uncomfortable or to be a "fun blocker." We are all here to have a great time. There may be adult content and language used at times, but no sexual content or nudity will be allowed during the game. I also prohibit any discussions relating to sexuality, religion, racism, or politics. Our time together is short! Let's stay focused on what is happening in the game. Player Discretion Advised: Adventure depicts scenes of violence, adult language, illegal activity, and use of phobias. If you have a concern about the content at any time, please let me know before, during, or after the game. Your personal comfort and safety always come first!

How will character creation work

I will have pregens but you can use your own characters as long as they are sent to me the day prior to the start of the game. I will not delay the game to create or upload new characters.
