As part of the Pegasus Engine can handle any setting challenge… I was Challenged to run Cthulhu.
So I have put together a short run adventure to take the investigators over a 3-5 session adventure.
Character creation was fun and we now have six investigators to face the unspeakable horrors that lurk on the fringes of their insanity!
The adventure is set in the 1980’s…
Tactician (Actor: Byron)
A Chellosit and a Singer performer in the modern arts and a star among the young generation as a classical-rock musician. He cannot be found without his closest fan, Luna Dawn. Together they found that their common interest in witchcraft and the forbidden knowledge has sown their friendship together.
Freddrick Hayes (Mystic Fred)
Agitator (Actor: Rich)
A charlatan, con-man who operates within a travelling circus pretending to be a clairvoyant. He was approached by Russel Corey after Russel received several complaints about Mystic Fred. But when Russel visited Freddrick had his first experience in a true clairvoyant activity! Since then they have become true friends.
Ranged (Actor: Silver)
Theodore has just started his Private Investigator Firm. He got involved with Russel Corey when a client brought Russel to Theodore’s attention. Meeting at a dinner party they shared similar interests and would meet often to discuss such topics.
Ranged (Actor: Waracolyte)
A shunned member of royalty who joined the secret service. Now only known as W. He has joined a special operation that seeks and shuts down cultist activities. W latest mark was Russel Corey, whose name came to the department of defences interest after making it big with his clairvoyant activity. Meeting with Russel, W has infiltrated his circle of friends, hoping to learn more about this man.
Scrapper (Actor: Woadan)
An ex-serviceman. Now works as a taxi driver and has an interest in all things supernatural. One day he was transporting Russel Corey to a big event, they got talking and since then, Russell uses Warrens services as often as possible.
Russell Corey after months of research has finally made a breakthrough in his discoveries. Excited he wanted to share this in a special meeting with his close friends. One by one he contacted the investigators, inviting them to come to a dinner party that he has put together to share with them his discovery, which he claims will blow the minds of the skeptics… But the investigators when called to visit, find him murdered, which leads them on a trail of discovery.
Sailing from Bristol to Dakar the Epsilon Pioneer chugged away… After meeting with the scientific team aboard the ship the investigators retired for the night.
The next day they started to gather for breakfast when a scream echoed throughout the ship. Racing their way to the shower room, they discovered Luna in the shower and one of the deckhands holding her towel. Proactively Dorian strikes out and then hands the towel to Luna.
The deckhand tries to explain but no one believes him…
During the voyage, they get to know members of the crew and the scientific team more closely. Everyone seems genuinely excited and focused on the voyage to Griffin Island.
Arriving at Dakar a member of the scientific team notices that items are missing, they soon find them in the bazaar and go about retrieving the items.
After a week in Dakar, the ship once more makes its way toward South America, and closer to their voyage end!
Our 2-hour game session then ended unit next time!
