Editor’s Notes - What’s Next in the Pipeline?

June 9th, 2018

Blackwater Creek - First, a brief note about our fist session - Blackwater Creek. I hope our listeners made it through the first part and listened to the 2nd and 3rd, because with every editing session I could tell I was improving in speed & technique. Got the workflow down fairly well after many false starts attempting to use various free and paid programs. So I just uploaded a revamped version of the first audio file for our listeners.

Coming up next - a session set amidst the towering forests of New England, our valiant players search for a young woman who's being held prisoner against her will somewhere deep within the gloom. It's looking like a two-part session. The first half will be edited and posted shortly! Keep listening!

Blackwater Creek Part 3 of 3: A Call of Cthulhu Scenario

June 9th, 2018

Givin' the Back of our Hand to Blackwater Creek!

This is the third and final episode in which we play the Call of Cthulhu scenario Blackwater Creek, one of the two scenarios included with the CoC 7th Edition Keeper's Screen.

In this episode we blast our way to a "solution" of sorts... Not to spoil any outcomes, but the scenario didn't exactly follow the game plan. We talk a little bit about future planning and overall everyone had a good time and I learned a few things about being a Keeper. Next, every time, will be just a little bit better.

Gluten Free!
There is very little background noise in this episode (phew) other than some canine intervention.

Hopefully you've stuck with us thus far! Now enjoy our last day in Blackwater Creek...

Blackwater Creek Part 2 of 3: A Call of Cthulhu Scenario

June 1st, 2018

Welcome to Blackwater Creek!

This episode is part two of three episodes in which we play the Call of Cthulhu scenario Blackwater Creek, one of the scenarios included with the CoC 7th Edition Keeper's Screen.

In this episode we crunch our way through further misadventures and missteps. People die, there's a pig roast, and I continue my tradition of being a very beginning Keeper with a few rough spots here and there. C'est la vie!

Crunch Warning!
Did I mention that we were sorta new to this? Well, not to gaming, but to podcasting. I promise this is the last time we'll serve crunchy snacks while recording. Who knew?? Anyway, just imagine that someone is feasting on small squirmy Chthulian nasties - kerrunch gobble slurp! Mea culpa.

Other sound quality notes: I hope that this segment sounds a bit cleaner than Part One! There were a few spots where I had to completely mute some of the audio tracks due to excessive background noise. And during playback I noticed that you can really hear the road crew that was thumping around down the street. Your constructive comments welcome!

With that disclaimer out of the way, sit back and ejnoy as we take you on a journey to Blackwater Creek...
