    Update on Chaosium's Organised Play, 'A Time to Harvest'...

    The campaign officially kicks off on Saturday April 16th, 2016, to coincide with the release of the physical copies of Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition,  Although Bored? Game! Keepers will not begin to run the campaign until sometime in May (when we have had chance to read it through and have the new rulebook in our hands).

    Each episode will follow on sequentially towards the OP campaign's climax. It is a linear progression, although within each episode, the investigators usually have a range of things/routes to take - some episodes being more sandbox than others in this fashion. Frequency of play will run one episode per month (either weekly, fortnightly, or monthly), but obviously some groups may take longer or shorter.

    The campaign will accomodate 4 to 6 players max per group and there is no cost or entry fee at all to take part, just bring your pencil, eraser and sense of adventure...not to mention a strong sanity threshold!

    The venue where the campaign will take place will be arranged nearer the time, and players will have to be over 18 to take part.

    Bored? Game! has teamed up with Chaosium's 'Cult of Chaos' Organised Play campaign 'A Time to Harvest'. It's early days yet, and we are awaiting further details on how the campaign will work, but if anyone is interested in joining this roleplaying adventure, then please get in touch via our Contact Page or Facebook to register your curiosity into the unspeakable horrors that will no doubt await you!

    What we do know, is that, “It’s a tightly focused campaign, set in Lovecraft Country, which is inspired by and builds on H. P. Lovecraft's tales", said Mike Mason, line editor for Call of Cthulhu.

    Written by established Call of Cthulhu authors Brian Sammons, Charles P Zaglanis, Glynn Owen Barrass and Mike Mason, A Time to Harvest is an an ideal campaign for novice Keepers and players alike, with plenty of advice throughout, but veteran players will also find it engaging and fun too.

    "Things are not always what they seem and the players will have to navigate the various twists and turns. It’s also pretty fast paced, with plenty of action putting the investigators into dangerous situations. Whether around the learned halls of Miskatonic University, the streets of Arkham, or the wilds of Vermont, the players will have plenty of opportunities to explore, investigate, and face threats not of this world!”, said Mason.

    So, watch this space for more information, and remember, submit your interest ASAP to avoid disspointment!

    Unravel the mysteries of Ravenloft® in this dread adventure!

    Under raging storm clouds, the vampire Count Strahd von Zarovich stands silhouetted against the ancient walls of Castle Raveanloft. Far below, yet not beyond his keen eyesight, a party of adventurers has just entered his domain. Strahd’s face forms the barest hint of a smile as his dark plan unfolds. He knew they were coming, all according to his plan. A lightning flash rips through the darkness, but Strahd is gone. The master of Castle Ravenloft is having guests for dinner—and you are invited.

     

    • A 256-page fantasy-horror adventure for characters levels 1 – 10, Curse of Strahd™ provides everything a Dungeon Master needs to create an exciting and memorable play experience.
    • Fans of the Dungeons & Dragons® Roleplaying Game can have additional adventures in Ravenloft by participating in the D&D Adventurers League™ organized play program.
    • Written in consultation with Tracy Hickman and Laura Hickman, creators of the original Ravenloft adventure.

    Players will also love to get their hands on a physical tarroka deck of cards produced by Gale Force 9 and available with the release of the adventure. The tarokka deck is a powerful tool for both Madam Eva and for Dungeon Masters running Curse of Strahd. By using the tarokka deck to randomize locations within the adventure, Dungeon Masters can customize each party's exploration of Barovia, allowing Curse of Strahd to be replayed for years to come. The Vistani have long been masters of fortune telling. In the hands of a Vistani seer, tarokka cards can tell tales of the future and provide answers to many a dark and mysterious question.
