Thoughts on Cthulhu Halloween 2017

My regular Tuesday Worlds of Beru group asked that I run a special Cthulhu session for this year, since Halloween fell on Tuesday. You can view the video on our Youtube channel, and here is a brief summary of my thoughts about the session (I haven't had a chance to watch it)...

My thoughts on the session

While the ambiance worked well, I believe, I had a frantic week and was not well prepared unfortunately. So this showed up a little too much I'm afraid. And needed to take a break mid-game to finish preparing. Definitely not my best GMing alas.

Initially the group was milling about a lot. I had to directly, verbally, push them to get on the ball and get things rolling, since it was a one-shot session, and they weren't coordinating well. After the directive, they started to improve.

While I know a few players had a good time, both from their reactions and their direct comments to me post-game, I wonder if a few others were bored with the mystery aspect and only wanted to get to the hack and slash. One in particular really seemed disengaged after a bit. I didn't run a formal assessment to find out, and I wish I had. I will see if they give me some honest feedback at tomorrow's game session, back on track with the Worlds of Beru campaign.
