Cthulhu versus Cancer

Scott Dorward posted the following in our forums and I felt it deserved as wide an audience as possible.

“My friend Paul Fricker has released a Call of Cthulhu scenario — Dockside Dogs — to raise funds for Relay for Life, which is a cancer research charity. I played Dockside Dogs with him a few years ago, and I can recommend it without hesitation as one of the most original takes on Cthulhu that I’ve encountered.

The press release follows, and the donation link can be found at the end.”

Dockside Dogs (Cthulhu vs Cancer)

Paul Fricker (author of ‘Gatsby and the Great Race’, ‘My Little Sister wants you to Suffer’ and the forthcoming Seventh Edition Call of Cthulhu Rulebook) has released a modern-day Call of Cthulhu scenario. All monies raised are going to the Relay for Life (Cancer Research) charity.

Paul said, “I originally wrote Dockside Dogs a few years ago and I’m very proud of it, but doubt it would ever be released otherwise. At the time of joining the fundraising team a few months back I didn’t know my own father would be diagnosed
with cancer. Sadly the release of this scenario has co-ordinated with the day of my father’s death.”

Dockside Dogs is a modern-day scenario for 3-6 players and includes character sheets for Mr. Beige, Mr. Purple, Mr. Black, Mr. Red, Mr. Silver and Mr. Green.

PDF, minimum donation £3.25 / US$5 (include a reference to Dockside Dogs with your donation and Paul will email you the scenario soon after)


About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
