[Achtung Cthulhu] Into Darkness

Cross-cutting abounds in this session as the group confronts enemies in the waking world and in the dream-realm of the dead. We also convert fully to 7th edition Call of Cthulhu and the new Pulp Cthulhu rules.

[The original upload had some audio issues. We've sorted them to the best of our modest abilities.]

  1. In terms of both personality and luck with rolling, Jade and Dave make an ideal pair. One resolutely refuses to be anything but the stoic, unflappable hero and the other is a madman who goes crazy yet still somehow succeeds.

    For posterity, at roughly the 1 hour 40 minute mark comes the line "I live to run into portals".

    Also I had a lot of really weird audio distortion this episode where things would get randomly really quiet. Anyone else have this problem?

    1. I only noticed it once, but yes, I did hit some places (well, one place) where it got very quiet.

    2. Yeah, I'm going to try and re-edit the audio. The escalating background noise from turning on the fan and cooler seems to have messed with the leveling software.

  2. I keep expecting all of these crossovers to pop up I. This game even though I know they won't happen. The man with the fedora a few episodes ago? Oh, it's Indiana Jones. Strange party near an Egyptian temple? Oh, Abbott and Costello. British secret service? Maybe rub elbows with M.

  3. Well, a version of M might pop up at some point (to the extent that Fleming based M off a couple real-life people), but...there's one crossover Des is really pushing for that I might bring in. We'll see...

    1. Let me know what it is and I'll push for it, too!

    4. I hope it's having to save the Captain America stage show instead of raiding a Hydra facility.

      Everyone can take turns punching the Hitler actor!

    5. Captain America as himself in... "The King in Yellow"

  4. Took me a while, but I think I got most of the bad audio patched up.

    1. I could hear it well enough to hear "cyclopean," which was the important thing.
