The Return of the Devourer

I wanted to run Lady Blackbird on Sunday. It's a great game, but it only really works if you have people who haven't played it before. I had two 'new' players lined-up to join us, though they made me aware they might not be able to make it. One of them has on-going health issues. What I should have done is planned a back-up adventure if they couldn't make it, but I didn't.

They dropped out at 4pm.

This wasn't ideal, as I was taking the kids back to their mother at the time, which meant I wouldn't have much time at home before the adventure began. Thankfully, I was able to cobble together a sequel to the previous week's adventure, using the Beowulf trope of You Thought That Monster You Fought Last Time Was Big Wait Until You See Its Mother This Week. Plus I've created a rich in-game mythology from which to draw, even if it is so long since we played Call of Cthulhu regularly that I can't remember it all. I'm also aware that I don't want to return to the well too often. It would be wrong to rest on past glories. Anyway, once again we had three players, with one different from the previous week. And again we had a laugh and solved the mystery. I would have liked more time to prepare, but much fun was had by all.
