This will be my thread for announcing CoC 7e One Shots. All games will take place at 1900 GMT+0 (I may occasionally be able to alter this by an hour either way). The Game Calendar "Campaign" entry can be found here (https://www.fantasygrounds.com/calendar/?id=2312).

Please post and subscribe to this thread if you want to be advised when the next One Shot will be.

Should a game be over subscribed, I will pick the first five players that have voted yes and posted in this thread. So it is in your own interest to post your intention to play here as well as voting yes on the calendar.

Next Scenario
The next scenario I'll be running is The Derelict" a modern day scenario - "Despite the concerns and worries of life, a final voyage is being made on the luxury yacht, Delilah, taking the vessel from America to its new owner in England. What promises to be a pleasurable journey across the ocean waves descends into a desperate struggle for survival."

Cult of Chaos (http://www.chaosium.com/organized-play/)
I'll be running the one shots as a member of the Cult of Chaos, so please feel free to post (or PM) feedback (positive and negative) on the scenario, the rules or me as the Keeper.

Next game will be either 1st or 2nd January. Vote on the calendar entry(s) you can make and I'll run the one with the most players. I'll only be running 1st or 2nd and the first five players will get to play.

I'd look forward to participating. January 1st is not possible for me, unfortunately. I've set my vote, FWIW, for the second. Cheers, D

Venom do you have some premades available? I only played one oneshot of CoC and have no idea on how to create a char :-)

Please accept my apologies.

You missed quite some nice game there mate! :-)
I am looking forward for our second session, this week I am available pretty much every day except sunday. The start of the year is always a bit calmer shedule-wise on my side so I hopefully can adapt to you other players :-)

VenomousFiligree
January 3rd, 2017, 00:38
I'll not be able to run another game this week. The idea is that the games are single session rather than multiple. However should the three of you want to having a more finalised ending to the last session I can see if I can fit that in. Otherwise the next session will likely be a Saturday in two to three weeks (maybe midweek a bit sooner).

Hermundure
January 3rd, 2017, 12:15
Thats nice to hear, if I can make it I would be happy to join you again for your next one-shot.

If the two players would be interested in bringing our game from yesterday a bit further count me in also.
Its always sad for me to see a game which has nice roleplaying between everyone and some remarkable moments to end so abrubtly because of time reasons.
For me it was late also so I was happy in drawing a cut there but I am curious how the story will unfold if we continue a few hours :-)

The next One Shot I fancy running is a modern one - The Derelict - "Despite the concerns and worries of life, a final voyage is being made on the luxury yacht, Delilah, taking the vessel from America to its new owner in England. What promises to be a pleasurable journey across the ocean waves descends into a desperate struggle for survival."

I am super interested in getting in on a game. I simply love Call of Cthulhu and have played in-person and on Roll20, but never on FantasyGrounds.

My shedule is not very tight until the weekend so if you like I can teach you the ropes of FG to get you going :-)
Out of the ordinary working hours that is :-)

Maybe you manage to switch FG away from Steam, it has an own starter and auto-updater so its hazzle-free.

Hi - really interested in playing in these if you have an open spot. I started playing CoC way back in the 80s and have played various iterations since then, most recently 6ed. I've not played 7th yet but would like to do so!

Apologies for the "radio silence", job changes along with associated housing changes (I work away from home) have kept me away from FG.

My steam account is now working, is there still interest..? I'm particularly enjoying reading Pulp Cthulhu at the moment.

Ekumaex, to confirm you're OK with the time, 1900 in the evening UK time?

Ekumaex
August 26th, 2017, 23:23
Apparently I got so excited that I didn't see the UK timezone. This wouldn't have even been much of a problem since my job's flexible, except that it's on Wednesdays, the one day it won't work for me at that time. Sorry to bother you. If your day changes, I'm all in, though.

Hi - I'm definitely interested in playing - it's been a few years since I played CoC but I've just bought the 7e rules and I'm very impressed! I'll be away next week but am free to play at 1900 UK (I live in Ireland) on 13 September if that works for you?
