Miskatonic August Newsletter 1930

Ah, the warm winds of August are upon us, signaling the end of yet another exhilarating term here at Miskatonic University. Home to the spirited Miskies – Go Miskies!
As we reflect on the academic journey of this semester, we are thrilled to celebrate the rich history of Miskatonic's groundbreaking contributions to archaeology. Our University has been at the forefront of numerous successful expeditions, with the most recent taking our intrepid adventurers to the icy landscapes of the Arctic! The anticipation is palpable—what wonders will our brave crew uncover this time?
We wish them godspeed on this thrilling endeavor!

Miskatonic is renowned for its unwavering commitment to the Sciences, attracting aspiring brilliant minds from far and wide. Could you be the next great Archaeologist, Doctor, Chemist, or Biologist to emerge from our hallowed halls? Join the ranks of luminaries like Dr. Armitage, Professor Carlyle, and Professor Atwood, and leave an indelible mark on the world.

To our esteemed English and Music Majors, fear not, for you are the bee's knees! Our very own Ragamuffin band is set to serenade us at the upcoming grand dance. Mark your calendars, for this is no ordinary affair—it's a black-tie event, with the only exception being Arctic gear! In honor of our recent expedition, attendees are encouraged to showcase their snow gear as we dance the night away in Arctic-themed splendor. Secure your tickets now ; at a mere nickel per entry, they're a steal! Don't miss your chance to invite that special someone before tickets vanish into the chilly night.

Remember to check out our Miskie’s scrimmage football game against the Massachusetts Aggies next Saturday. Track and Field will be wrapping up with an event this Tuesday. Come show your school spirit.
For those of you in need of some extra credit, we're looking at you Jimmy, Professor Roger Harrold is looking for volunteers for a return school field trip to Cobb's Corner, Vermont during the summer week break. You can join in as part of the Geology team or the Folklore team. The best news is the Dean and the Professors have agreed this will count as extra credit for any course you need! How's that for a deal. They will be departing on August 15th 7 a.m. sharp! Contact Professor Harrold at his office in the Science Building.

As we bid adieu to another term, let us revel in the accomplishments of our Miskatonic family and eagerly anticipate the discoveries that await in the future. Until next term, stay curious and Go Miskies!

Warm regards,

[Andrew Phelan]

Throwing my hat in the race:

Frank Gilbert WIP
right-aligned image
Name: Frank Gilbert
Age:
College Major: Physics (College of Science)
Rolls: HERE

Physical Description: Tall, blonde, with a warm smile.

A bit about your character Frank got in Miskatonic University thanks to his father, Robert Gilbert, who's an ex alumnus.

Why are you attending the extra credit trip? Dad being a chemistry teacher has many jokes about geologists, Frank took the trip to tease him saying he might switch his major in geology, but also to make up new jokes about geologists with his dad.

Nice! You’ll be splendidly surprised I believe.
Remember you get personal points to spend. I always recommend some be spent on at least one of these if it’s not in your primary skill package: stealth , brawl, handgun, dodge, spot hidden,drive, psychology. Keep those in mind as you come up with your character ideas. You have an extracurricular option as well maybe they belong to the wrestling team for brawl or the hunting club or maybe you just like watching the other students you creeper for stealth

Since I was blessed with very good rolls I was definitely thinking of spending some points in some "fighty skills" as member of the wrestling team.

I have a game thread. You can use the dice roller there if you want to roll now. I will be slowly building the other threads up.

I've really wanted to play CoC! I'm a newbie at it though. I got some pretty decent rolls so I'm excited.

Edmund Kirby
right-aligned image

Name: Edmund "Ned" Kirby
Age: 20
College Major: Archaeology
Physical Description: Ned is 5'10, lanky, with tousled brown hair and hazel eyes. He wears horn-rimmed spectacles.

A bit about your character(Background, College life etc. ): Ned is a scholarship student, and he's a bit prickly about it. His parents are not well-off. He feels like a bit of an outsider on campus among students who take summer trips to Europe and wear designer suits. Ned mostly keeps to himself and has few friends, but he isn't unfriendly, just reserved. He genuinely wants to make connections but feels he is hampered by his origins.
Why are you attending the extra credit trip?: Ned is genuinely interested in the purpose of the trip, and he admires Professor Harrold. He will be on the team doing the geology portion of the work.

I'm going down the line with my stats, I'll figure out my character from the rolls.

As we are college students, can I confirm we fall under the age category 15-19, and so should "Deduct 5 points among STR and SIZ. Deduct 5 points from EDU. Roll twice to generate a Luck score and use the higher value."? Though you mention not rolling for Luck when using Option 1. Or are we assumed to be in the final years of college and fall into the 20-39 age bracket?

You can if you wish to play a freshman but you’d also fall into the 20-22 range as well which would cover juniors and seniors.

Name: Sierra Mcbride
Age: 22
College Major: Medical Doctor
Physical Description: Sierra is just under five foot tall with long black hair and peachy skin with a rosy glow in her cheeks.

A bit about your character(Background, College life etc. ): Sierra comes from a wealthy family and was expected to marry the right sort and simply be pretty. She defied those expectations from day one with a brilliant mind and keen look into the world. She's always been interested in medicine and wants to be a doctor. Her parents still hold out hope that she might settle down and marry a doctor.

Why are you attending the extra credit trip?: The school took some students from the medical track to be on site as first aid and medical needs. Sierra's parents aren't the only people who think she shouldn't be a doctor and this is just one more shot to try and get her to drop out and make a spot for someone 'more deserving' well she's not having any of that she'll go on the stupid trip and return to finish her studies.

Friends with Clarissa Thurber: Since chemistry is required for pre-med Sierra and Clarissa have shared classes together. They were study partners and have become close friends.

Thanks, I'm not particularly au fait with the American school system. I'll make my PC 21, to avoid too much confusion.


J.M. Harding - WIP
right-aligned image

Name: Jesse Michael Harding
Age: 21
College Major: Law (College of Law and Business)
Physical Description: Tall, attractive, and charming, he keeps his wavy hair neatly cropped and styled. Always ready with a winning smile. He enjoys swimming, but does not otherwise exercise much, so he is not especially muscular.

A bit about your character(Background, College life etc.): If only J.M. would apply himself, his tutors lament! An attractive, charming, intelligent young man - what he does deign to learn he absorbs like a sponge, but he simply doesn't take the world seriously. Pushed into a Law major by his father Michael Josiah Harding, a notable Newburyport lawyer and alumnus of the same college, J.M. is reluctant to actually begin a legal career. Instead, he can often be found cutting classes, preferring to be out of town with his sketchbook, taking in the beautiful New England countryside; alternatively, he will have invited one of the pretty young women around campus to his dorm to sketch, or paint. Sometimes he sneaks into Arts classes, and has struck up a kind of friendship with an Art Professor who knows J.M. shouldn't be there, but can't bear to turn away an interested student.

Why are you attending the extra credit trip? Failing? Brown Nosing? Personal Interest?: Having missed rather too many classes in favour of his other interests, J.M. is on the verge of failing his degree. After all, there's only so far you can get on raw intelligence. His father is furious that J.M. has put himself in this position, letting down the Harding family name. As much as Harding Sr thinks the summer trip is a waste of time, he is insisting that J.M. go on it to make up the credits, and as a form of punishment for throwing away the money he has spent on J.M.'s place at Miskatonic. J.M. is actually looking forward to it - a summer without being berated for his lack of ambition? Sounds like bliss. And when he heard that Clarissa was going, he stopped putting up any kind of resistance.

NPC relationships:
  • Clarissa Thurber: J.M. usually finds the pretty girls around campus fairly easy to charm. The fact that Clarissa is in no way interested in him makes him even more interested in her. The thrill of the chase, it's intoxicating.
  • Jason Trent: J.M. bumped into Jason in the library one time. Jason would hardly talk, but J.M. saw someone who at heart had a lot to give, and followed Jason around the library talking, trying to get a response from the little guy, instead getting a stern telling off from the librarian for being too loud. J.M. has decided to be Jason's friend; Jason doesn't get a say in the matter. J.M. stands up for Jason whenever he can.
Skills:
Accounting, Language other (, Language own (English), Library Use, Persuade, 1 physical education skill (Swim) +2 skills related to field of study or 1 field of study (Law) and an extracurricular activity (Fine Art).

I have no experience with the system, and have only had the book for a few days, so it might take some time to get everything figured out if I get selected.

Call of Cthulhu - Harvest
right-aligned image

Name: Abigail Poulter
Age: 21
College Major: Psychology
Physical Description: Short and frumpy, Abigail has spent three years at Miskatonic more-or-less invisible to most of her peers. This is largely the way she likes it, having never been particularly outgoing or talkative.

A bit about your character(Background, College life etc.): Abigail comes from money, her father a lumber baron in Washington state who vanished several years ago on a hunting trip with his eldest son. Her brother Howard, an ambitious and unscrupulous man, always seemed a little too evasive on the subject of what exactly happened in the woods, but since he inherited their father’s fortune she never pushed the issue with him. Howard was only too happy to send his ‘dear’ sister across the country to attend university the moment she brought the subject up, even funding her summer studies so that she only returned home once a year for Christmas.

Why are you attending the extra credit trip? Failing? Brown Nosing? Personal Interest?: Abigail is on the trip mainly out of personal interest, spending her summers studying subjects that don’t necessarily apply to her degree.

NPC Relationships: During her second year at Miskatonic University, Abigail was partnered with William Noakes in a shared class to write a research paper, choosing a thrilling discourse on the Psychological Stressors Related to Advancing Tool Use and Technology. The pair worked well together, receiving an A on the paper, yet have had little contact in the year since then despite parting on good terms.

Terrence Laslow and Abigail Poulter have hated each other since the first day they met, and no one really knows why. While he is something of an ass, being near him seems to draw out the very worst in Abigail. Indeed their arguments have become so heated that the two of them have had to be restrained from engaging in fistcuffs. Thankfully, neither of them is a particularly imposing specimen and have led entirely too sheltered lives that this is not hard to accomplish.
