Time: 4 PM PDT / 6 PM CDT / 7 PM EDT / 23:59 Apr 27 UTC If the date and time are no good for you, let me know when is! I may run the scenario again if there's interest. <a href="https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20180427T18&p1=64" rel="nofollow">https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20180427T18&p1=64</a> I am a GM looking to start a group for an easy one shot (a
game that takes only one session to complete). This is great for
beginners or experienced players looking for an extra taste of CoC. I
have played and GMed hundreds of hours of tabletop RPGs, and hosted many one shots on Roll20 as well as a successful months-long campaign. This will be my
second time GMing this scenario, and my second time GMing Call of
Cthulhu. The scenario is meant as an introduction to the game system as
well as the setting.
This game will require payment to the Game Master at a rate
of $5 via PayPal for the one session. Roll20 is not responsible for any
payment transactions and cannot enforce any private arrangements.
The adventure focuses on role-playing, exploration, and
mystery with some light combat. I expect the session should take 3-4
hours, but it could be a bit shorter or longer depending on how things
unfold. If you've never player Call of Cthulhu before, check out the free Quick Start Rules <a href="https://www.chaosium.com/free-quick-start-pdf/" rel="nofollow">https://www.chaosium.com/free-quick-start-pdf/</a> Stop reading when you get to the scenario The Haunting, in case you want to play in that one!
The game is set during the Great Depression in Providence,
Rhode Island. The players are tenants of Ma Shanks' Boarding House. One
of the other tenants has not been seen from in at least two days. A
group of concerned individuals has formed to request the landlord pay
the man a visit. Character Creation
The session will use pre-generated characters that are
integrated into the scenario. Everyone will play as a tenant at the
boarding house. The characters will be available in Roll20 for you to
pick which one you think suits you.

Why paid GMing?
Defray the content costs. I'm hoping to use the money to buy some Marketplace content on Roll20 and more RPG materials. Prevent flakes. Players (and GMs) are far more likely to show up and be on time if there's payment involved. It takes a lot of extra time to GM. I spend about 2 hours per game-hour prepping. Reading the adventure, taking notes, cross-referencing rules, finding and making tokens, finding and making maps, setting them up in Roll20, adding NPCs to Roll20, going over character sheets, and organizing the session all takes a lot of time outside the game. It's part of the hobby, but as I'm having to put in prep time I'd rather not have to spend so much on the content costs too. LFG Listing
