Call of Cthulhu - Colours of the blitz

Discussion in 'ROLEPLAY GRAVEYARD' started by Vay, May 6, 2010.

  1. Its 1940 and London is aflame. America stubbornly refuses to enter the war and England stands virtually alone against the might of the Luftwaffe and operation sealion was its gaze firmly set on grinding southern England beneath amroured treads.

    You are a citizen of the still neutral U.S.A. For whatever reason brought you to England you're now stranded by a blockade of u-boats and fighter patrols. For some reason you are contacted via telegram by a Mr. Bill Donovan, a New York Lawyer requesting that you meet him in the coastal town of Birling Gap to investigate strange happenings there.

    This uses the Call of Cthulhu core Rulebook 5.6, all 1920 occupations are allowed while equipment should be 1930s

  4. Name: Charles "Chuck" Parker
    Age: 26
    Occupation: Police Detective
    Appearance: Unassuming but for a viscous looking scar across his face. Chuck almost looks like the stereotypical detective in his Leather Overcoat and Hat, he keeps his handgun holstered on his right and shotgun slung underneath his coat.
    Personality: A relatively easygoing soul, chuck likes to go bird hunting on weekends and is a successful amateur boxer
    History: not much of chuck's life has been out of the ordinary, that changed one night about five years ago when he got called into a domsetic disturbance late at night, that ended with his partner dead and a nasty scar on his face from the drunkards knife. Now he's much more cautious, and prefers not to lose his cool in a given situation. He's currently in England on a multinational investigation.

  5. Looks good though you should have your Damage Bonus as 0 and its a stretch having such firepower as an American in war-torn England without an explanation and you might want a pair of $3 handcuffs. If you give me an explanation as to why hes allowed armour and a shotgun (perhaps hes helping out in an investigation) I'll allow it.
     
  6. I DON'T WANNA LEARN ANOTHER RULE SYSTEM!
     
  7. Yes, acctually he was on an Investigation in England, forgot about the cuffs thanks for reminding me, multinational cases always suck.
     
  8. .
     
  9. Compared to other systems this ones fairly easy to learn I got it down in a day (though i did have help) BUT, if people are lazy I can run a parallel CoC D20 game (Basically DnD with added sanity rules and Compatible with DnD characters)

    Last thing GMK you should list the skills for each type of firearm next to or near the weapon for easy reference I.E. Handgun 20% and Shotgun 30%.
     
  10. I'm semi interested...haven't gotten a chance to run with my own Call of Cthulu rule book...this might be an opportunity for me to learn the system a bit better.
     
  11. Name: Angela Lanceford
    Age: 20
    Occupation: Antiquarian
    Appearance: A young woman who stands 5'5 and weighs approximately 120 lbs. She has shoulder-length dark brown hair always kept up in a tidy bun and large dark brown eyes. She has fair skin from being indoors so much and is slim.
    Personality: Scholar. Bookworm. Quiet as a mouse. Angela keeps to herself rather than mingles and in case of conflicts, does whatever she can to avoid them. She will agree with something to keep the peace and is full of doubt when it comes to dealing with people. She is much more confident when dealing with books and the knowledge they possess.
    History: The only daughter of two archaeologists, Angela was born in the United States but raised in England by her grandmother. She returned to the U.S. for school, having developed a love for antiques and the vast history they contained. But an emergency called her back to England; her grandmother is very ill. Unfortunately, now she's stuck in England and has received a strange yet curious letter ...

  12. name: Ashtiana Vyth
    age: 21
    occupation: criminal
    appearance: ashtiana stands at a height of 5'7" and weighs about 135 pounds. medium length red hair and beautiful blue eyes. she is also very flexible to boot.

    personality: ashtiana doesnt mess around. if she has a job she gets it done no questions asked. if she is talking to you she will get along with you just fine and she is always as polite as she can be with others. she is easy to get along with she isn't very picky about things. but if you are the one she is after then she will most likely kill you from a long distance from behind and if you manage to get away from it then she gets up close and personal. its just how she is. and her opinion is that if you dont like it then you can get over it and deal with it.

    history: most of her life she was training to be a killer and at that time it wasnt considered a crime but now it is and she doesnt care. she gets paid to kill others. and now at this point in time she is found in england on a contract that was given to her by the us government to take out a rouge agent that had been sent there two years earlier. and she was getting nowhere fast.
