    About the adventure

    The mysteries of the occult have always been fascinating to you, and while Victorian England may not give you many opportunities to indulge your interests, your friendship with poet William Butler Yeats is about to open some new doors for you. But remember: do not call up that which you cannot put down... This campaign takes you from the English countryside to the Paris Opera House, allowing you to interact with historical figures while you investigate the mysteries of the mythos.

    Gameplay details

    I provide a safe and open space to play TTRPGs! That means that I have several safety nets in place for us. Before the game starts, to make sure that we're all playing where we're comfortable, I will send a checklist of various triggers that you can rate your comfort level with. I will then anonymously reveal our group's list of ratings. Right before the game starts, I'll ask if anyone has any extra Lines or Veils they would like to add, with the caveat that these things are always subject to change. During play, players can message an "X" to stop a triggering scene, an "N" if they're afraid the scene is approaching something triggering, or an "O" if they would like to clarify that they're holding up okay. Finally, after play, we'll spend about 15 minutes chatting with each other, either about the game or about anything we like, to ensure that we come away positively! This game will largely be played through Theatre of the Mind. It is centered around roleplay and the solving of mysteries.

    How will character creation work

    Character creation can either happen solo or in a session with me! Some aspects specific to the module will be done as we play. Investigators should be created for a Victorian setting in 7th edition Call of Cthulhu. For convenience's sake, we will be using point-buy (so split 460 points among your 8 characteristics). Pre-generated characters will also be made available as needed! They should be created before session 1, but do not need to be made before session 0, and character sheets can be physical or digital- just as long as you send it to me to look over before we play!

    Players can expect

    • Combat/Tactics: Low
    • Roleplay: High
    • Puzzles: Medium
    • Experience Level: Open to all
