About this experience

Scanlon’s Daughter Pt. 2

Star-crossed lovers are, as the song says, a tale as old as time:  Vincente Romero, a young cowhand on his family’s ranch, has fallen in love with Juliet Scanlon, the only child of the stern Everett Scanlon.  Of course, the elder Scanlon does not approve of his daughter’s infatuation with the young Romero and has forbidden her to see him.  But what power does a father’s admonition hold in the face of young love? And thus, the two continued to meet in secret.  They were caught once again by Juliet’s father and the elder Scanlon sent Vincente home with a black eye for his trouble.  Vincente’s father Gustavo, and his brother Alfonse, have sworn to even the score.  Since then, the tensions in town have been increasing, leading to fights between Scanlon’s men and the Romeros.  It is only a matter of time until someone turns up dead.

Down Darker Trails brings the darkness of Call of Cthulhu to the American West in the late 19th century.  While this is an ongoing campaign, new players are always welcome. We will have pre-generated characters available or, if you prefer, we can arrange to get together at the store or virtually to go through character creation.  Please reach out to House GM James on discord with any question.

House GM James Backstory

Greetings programs!

I was hooked on RPGs the very first time I sat down with my friend Connor and rolled up an Elf using TSR’s Basic D&D, aka the Red Box. Since that time, I have played in and/or run games of four of the five editions of the world’s most popular role-playing game, Shadowrun (1st-4th eds.), Cyberpunk, Legend of the Five Rings (1st ed.), Seventh Sea (1st ed.), Call of Cthulhu, and several oWoD White Wolf games, among others.

As for my GM’ing style, I like to center the characters in the story and let everything emanate from there with the players driving the tone of the table itself. I enjoy running games that run the gamut from light-hearted romps to dark suspense to everything in between and as an avocational folk lorist and historian, I enjoy bringing obscure folk lore or an embarrassing amount of research to the gaming table.
