Of course, it's not going to be Call of Cthulhu but my own Cthulhu Abides. To sweeten the pill, I've invested in a dozen copies to give away to the competitors (5-6 on a team, 2 teams over the weekend). This means that, rather than hand out pre-genned characters, I'll let the players use CA's elegant little character generation system to create their own Edwardian cannonfod- err- "investigators".
Actually, CA is a Cthulhu RPG where your characters are marginally less likely to die but, when they do (notice, not "if", "when") then it's pretty quick to create a new one distinctively different from the last.
I haven't written the scenario yet because I'm lazy and because I'm more creative with a looming deadline. I want to use the Dreamlands pretty extensively and the East Anglian setting, which means Deep Ones a-plenty. I'll write the scenario up in full afterwards and publish it on this site.
The Nationals weekend is always a blast - so if anyone who sees this blog is there, seek me out! I'll haunt the bar on Saturday night and if my game is undersubscribed I'll have spare copies of Cthulhu Abides to give away.
May the team most devotes to madness and blasphemy win!
