They said it shouldn't be done! (They may have been right.) Nick takes the Whartson Hall crew through an adventure so terrifying he won't even tell us the title.

GM: Nick Marsh
Players: BigJackBrass, RogerBW, Riddles, Amelia, Dr Jomster

part 4

As Cthalloweenulhu fades into Cthistmas, we suddenly start making faster progress - which frustrates the GM as much as hanging around enjoying the scenery did.

I can't believe that it took Nick months to actually tell us the name of the adventure we're playing.

Would it be _very_ wrong to admit that I googled the adventure seconds after he mentioned which one it was?...

No, think I'm good. :)

I enjoyed the added strangeness at the end of the adventure. I have a copy of this one on the shelf and agree with y'all's discussion of its structure

Kudos to everyone involved for not puncturing any windows on the Selene.

Hi everyone... long time listener, first time poster; actually not that much of a long time listener - first episodes I listened to were the 'The Pirates of Drinax ' ones. I thought it was about time I posted to say thanks for sharing your games, so, umm Thank you!

Well done to everyone for making it such fun to listen along to and thanks to Jon for posting on twitter whenever a new episode was released.

I have a question (behind the spoiler tag) as it deals with events in the last episode.

Spoiler: show
When did Roger become aware of the true nature of the scenario, i.e. that 'Hanrahan' had already lived through and experienced the events?
