I'm joining a Trail of Cthulhu game shortly ran by a pretty good guy I met through the Yog-Sothoth-dot-com. He's running the epic Masks of Nyarlathotep using Trail of Cthulhu, which he holds to very high esteem. I'm set to meet up with the guys sometime this week to discuss character creation and other stuff. Got to admit: I'm pretty excited to be play again; I need the distraction from the post-apocalyptic economy and my own job searching.
The keeper told me that a private eye, police detective, or journalist would fit perfectly at the juncture the group is right now. The cliched alcoholic private eye sounds pretty interesting considering the pulpy "feel" I've been told the campaign hads. I'll use this blog as a character journal of sorts.
Talking of Cthulhu, I've been eyeing Goodman Games' Death in Luxor for some time now. It looks like a pretty good Dungeon-crawler for Call of Cthulhu. It would be kind of cool to connect it to a larger campaign like Masks of Nyarlathotep or Day of the Beast.
