In my restless sleep, I've seen the soul destroying eyes of the great old one, dreaming deep in it's city, but something has disturbed it's endless slumber and it will soon awaken!

My journal offers no comfort as I write of my nightmares. I know not what lies in the deep ocean waters, but I feel it calling to me, to make some sort of sacrifice to awaken it so it may wreak havoc and destruction upon our world once more ... what am I to do!?

I have no peace, the days drag on and my life-force drains from me daily, but I have sought out the help of a local professor who is known to deal with such occult matters that have plagued our beautiful city of Arkham ... I desperately need help as my mind is slipping away from me.

My meeting with professor Norman Withers has lifted my spirits! It seems I'm not the only one who has been having such nightmares. With the help of this old, eccentric, chap and others he has contacted, we must save the world by seeking out clues and artifacts to contain the ancient one, and destroy the evil force which is trying to awaken their great immortal!


I'll be looking to start a new Play-by-Forum scenario at the end of next week, most likely starting on the 28th July. Some details about the upcoming game ...

Title: The Sleeper Shall Awaken (PbF #33).
Ancient One: Cthulhu - The Madness from the Sea!
Game & Ruleset: BASE & FL sets.
Variant: Focus Action.

Play-by-Forum: Ideally, players should have the BASE game & FL expansion to be able to play, but I'll be referencing the new EH Wiki to make life easy for everyone: Link to EH Wiki!

Encounters: Players will be able to perform all their die rolls for Combat Encounters, after which I will complete your Local Encounter Phase. Combat Encounters should be carried out in "seating order", otherwise do it when you can as long as it won't effect the flow of the game, other players moves or the encounter decisions. Use the Geek-Dice for any combat, clue re-rolls, abilities, etc.

After combat, can you leave some conditions for me to follow based on your investigators abilities, clues, assets, spells, etc, to add to the dice pool ... for example ... Norman has three clues and he wants me to use only one during a gate encounter, along with his passive ability and Rabbit's Foot asset, so he would write ...

      Encounter: Red Gate @ London (Use Rabbit's Foot for a re-roll, then use
      Passive ability to re-roll "clue"; and if needed, use 1 Clue for a final re-roll).

If you miss something out, don't worry. Sometimes we will need to jump back/forwards between encounters, but that's not a problem for me. As we play more, we'll understand the PBF dynamics more to make the game more enjoyable. I'm more about having fun than rushing through a game.

Number of Players: Four (Invites will be sent soon!)

Invitations: These have been sent to the list of players ... EH Waiting List ... players are invited to play with BASE adventurers.

Post Images/Typography ...
>>> Character & Banners: Base game only ... ref to banners: Click Here
>>> Italics for flavor text/fluff: Ideally, players might consider a bit of "fluff" to their posts to make the game more interesting, for me and many others who watch the PBF games, thanks.
>>> Normal text for discussions, banter, cries of anguish, etc.
>>> Bold for game moves & Actions.

Here is a complete example of the listed items above to help players ... click here ... but look through the many posts in the PBF's to give yourself an idea of what's required. I'm not looking for exacts as newbies learn the rope, so post what you're happy with and we'll work through things as we learn more.

Anything else? Not sure, me too! ... we'll deal with things as they crop-up! Any and all questions will be answered!

There are no dumb questions, so please ask if you're not sure about anything!

Walts

Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken! : More PM's Sent!
I've just checked some of the login dates for the PM'd players and just
realised they've not logged in for months, so rather than hang about, I've
PM more possible players.

It's on a first-come-first-serve rule, so let's see if we can get others on board
before next Friday ... Walts

I'd love to join! I think I've been on the waiting list for a couple of years(?). However, I *will* be out for vacation the week of July 30 - Aug 6, so if you prefer to start earlier, I will patiently wait for the next opportunity. Just let me know what you want to do. I'd volunteer to run a game once I figure out how the hell to play by forum.

Hi Sam

If you can't post while on holiday, I'll have to wait on others to start
the game on the 28th, soz.

I will be running BASE & FL games on a more regular timeframe, so you'll
be able to jump onboard for the next one!

Thanks, Walts

No problem. I'm three or four down from the top of the list. Like I said, I'd be interested in moderating if I could get a little experience under my belt. I might just follow along and ask some questions along the way. Sort of like moderator-in-training.

Re: Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken!
I'd certainly be happy to help you on the road to moderating! thumbsup

Thanks to others who helped me, with images, data files and gameplay
guidelines, I've been able to get moderating very quickly. Along with the
players being able to do a lot of their own rolls with the geek-dice,
you'll be able to pick things up very quickly.

As long as you can use an image editor like Photoshop to make changes to
the game board and keep track of things in Excel, then you'll have no
problemo's getting started!

Start a new thread in the PbF section and you'll find me and a few others
happy to help when you want to get going ... Walts

You can send questions my way, as well. I would probably moderate a game myself if I wasn't quite so busy.

No worries guys, we all had to start somewhere!

If I was to give any advice, checkout the previous PbF's for pointers on
doing the dice rolls, posting layout of gameplay text, images and adding
a bit of fluff to make the game more exciting for everyone,

Thanks, Walts

Re: Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken!
I'm in. I'm flexible with character selection. If no one else wants him or wants to suggest someone for me to play as, I'll default to Mr Charles Kane. My second choice would be Silas Marsh of someone else wants Mr Kane.

Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken! : No More Spaces!
Thanks Brian, and that makes four players! thumbsup

I'll be working through the week to create all the required dice rolls
needed for our BASE & FL scenario, and we'll kick off on Fri 28th! Might
start sooner if I get things sorted sooner, but I've a busy week finishing
off the house for sale, so we'll have to just watch this space.


I'll be creating a new thread for the said game and this thread can be
used post any OOC questions players, or anyone else, might have.

As always with Pbf games, regular posting is a must, so looking for daily
feedback and interaction with fellow players to defeat Cthulhu!

Good luck, Walts

Re: Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken!


At first, Jacqueline's dreams of fire and destruction seemed like a curse. Monsters ran rampant through city streets and some greater darkness loomed on the horizon. However, she has recently learned to control her visions and observe events in detail. Yesterday, she traveled from Boston to Minneapolis to explore an abandoned warehouse she'd seen in her dreams. Inside, she found evidence of a terrible cult that had practiced unspeakable rituals there. And she found a note...

She read the note from Professor Withers. He also knew about the terrible future that haunts her sleep and urged whoever found that note to join him to fight that evil.

The address: the city of Arkham!

Wanna quickly BANNERFY yours posts ?? Look no further!!

Courtesy of marlus, here's an amazing script that makes it super-easy to add those banners to your posts:
marlus wrote:

1) Click on "Edit" on the top right of your screen to Edit your quick bar.

2) Chose an empty spot and fill label with "My Banner" and add the following text to the URL :

Quote:
javascript: (function() {var b = '[ImageID=xxxxxx medium]'; var t = document.getElementsByTagName('textarea')[0]; t.value = b+'\r\n'+t.value;})();


3) Replace "xxxxxx" with the ImageId you want to use as your banner. I used 1999731 to generate the one in this post.

4) When you post, click on Reply/Quick Reply and then click on your Quick Bar Link. Presto!


It even works on mobiles, so no excuses not to use a banner!

Eldritch Horror (PBF #33) - The Sleeper Shall Awaken! : Custom Rolls Added!
Hi Guys .... I've added some of the custom dice rolls you'll be able
to use to help the game move along quickly, rather than wait for
me to dish them out ...

>>> https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1817028/pbf-custom-rolls-ba...

... I'm sure we'll find others to add to the mix as we play with the
BASE & FL expansion, so let me know. Rem to use the EH Wiki
for details of specific cards; hopefully they'll all be there!

Do some rolls below as I get on with the next stage of preparation,
the gameboard! ... Walts

Soz Tajs, I'd dropped you a PM along with the others. Sadly,
they beat you to the punch on this one, but I'll be running PbF
more often now, so you'll be in the next batch ... Walts

Hmmm. Methinks there is something I'm missing here . . . .


What are "Custom rolls" for and how do I use them?
