November 25, 2020

(GM/Editor Note): This one starts rather rough, as I (The GM) appeared to be very flustered and having brain farts throughout the initial hour of the character investigation. We had come back to this after a bit of time. That said we forged ahead and the rest of the game improved as a result. We hope you enjoy!

Session 2: The Fedimore Field Fires

May 15th, 1945: local fire department and police, including Cross and O’Sullivan, have been called out to Fedimore Field, an old unused farm/crop-dusting strip that was once used for the local farming communities. Something wrong and bloody has occurred here and as the two investigate further, they risk getting caught up in something deeper than what lies on the surface and further damaging the normality of their lives.

Grumblehammer 1945

Following the 1920s campaign, in 2014 we decided to start a shorter one in the 1940s. I had been inspired by the narrative of Slenderman ARG vlogs like DarkHarvest00 and Tribetwelve, but wanted to expand the Mythos of the Deep Mosm and their own alien mythology. These games deals a lot with an inscrutable alien demon, a deranged human cult that worships it and secretive crocodile-folk. The Players are the unfortunate souls tossed into the mess.

(Cthulhu D20) GrumbleHammer Resurrection - The Corbyville Case

October 28, 2020

So… Season 2 of Grumblehammer 1920s never happened. Instead the greater Grumblehammer universe and mythos did. In the years following the Grumblehammer 1920s finale, we began running campaigns in different places and times, largely all fitting into our setting. However, over the years we’ve had ideas for “one-shots” set in the 20s or were involving Dimitri and Jerico. They don’t really have a connective tissue outside of being Grumblehammer 1920s expanded content. At least 1 is already recorded, and we do want to run the others as they fill in little niches of events that we mention or have discussed in the history of the world. These will likely be posted as they are recorded. Please enjoy a One-Shot in Grumblehammer 1920s!

The Corbyville Case

(September 15th, 1924) “Hook Head, Hook on his Head, now you are dead. Corbyville is a small town just north of Belleville, Ontario. Quiet and serene as it sits by the river. That calm is broken however with the realization that someone, or something, is hunting it’s residents. It killing whole families, seemingly impaling them in the head and leaving the men heartless. A darkness has it hooks imbedded in this little river town.”
