Cthulhu Calls you!
Call of Cthulhu is one of the oldest and most well-known tabletop roleplaying game. Call of Cthulhu (CoC) brought Lovecraft's horror stories into roleplaying games, allowing you to portray a character who may very well die, or go insane. The game is currently in it's seventh edition, and the quickstart rules are available for free.
Call of Cthulhu is a classic for a reason, and while it is no longer my go-to Lovecraft game it's still one of my favourite RPGs.
is a new website designed for PBP games that incorporate some tools to help the game go smoother. I'm currently playing in another game on the site, and want another chance to try it out, as well as expose more people to it. The site is not complete yet by any means but the creator is active with changes and involved with the community on the Discord.

The password is PA. This will be an opportunity for us to learn, grow, and possibly go mad when we realize the glory of Azathoth together! Ia Azathoth all glory to the blind idiot god at the center of all things! No prior experience with Call of Cthulhu is necessary as we'll all be learning together. The game will not be as deadly as many CoC scenario's either to let people learn, though death will be a possibility. Assuming the death occurs before the climax of the game though we will find a way to keep you involved in the game.
: It is 1924, and your group, for one reason or another, is travelling from Arkham Massachusets to the nearby town of Ipswitch. Unfortunately, the early summer weather takes a rapid turn for the worse as a thunderstorm begins to strike and the roads are quickly becoming impassible, it looks like you might have to find a place to shelter for the night. But don't worry, how bad could that be? Characters can be built according to the rules in the Quickstart. The game will take place in a more rural area, so certain skills may not be as effective. Besides that, any period-appropriate character will be fine. I would appreciate if you guys could come up with a reason why you all know each other and be travelling together to Ipswitch, though it didn't have to all be the reason.
Note: This is using a pre-published adventure for 7th edtion, so no searching out spoilers!
