Daily Punch 1-16-17 Bask in New Knowledge option for Call of Cthulhu

I had a fun event last week at my Call of Cthulhu campaign after I killed two players via sanity loss from an elder god.  How about we add that in as an option.

 

Bask in New Knowledge

When a character sees an elder god and would passes a sanity check, that character may elect to fail the roll.  If they do so they take normal sanity loss as if they had failed the roll, but gain half the lost sanity as a bonus to their Cthulhu Mythos skill.  Luck may by spent on a point by point basis to reduce sanity loss to avoid going insane.

Daily Punch 10-26-16 Distance Radio Education for Call of Cthulhu, 7th ed

Did you know back in the 1910-1930 there was an attempt to educate via radio waves?  http://iml.jou.ufl.edu/projects/spring01/declair/history.html

 

Let’s work that into Call of Cthulhu!

 

Distance Radio Education

Over the course of 1 month, a character may attempt to learn a skill via the standard education rules.  However, the character gets a bonus die when they attempt to roll over their current skill, thus it is harder for them to do so.  When a character succeeds on this check, they gain 1d4 points in that skill.  No character may gain more than 20 total points in a skill via this method.

Daily Punch 10-17-16 Drug Pusher occupation for Call of Cthulhu 7th Ed.

I’m playing a lot of Call of Cthulhu 7th ed lately, so let’s add something I think it needs.  I’m a PhD who teaches at a community college, so there is really only one option…

 

Dope Peddler

Sometimes people need things.  Sometimes they need chemicals.  Drug Pushers sell drugs of all kinds from the simple kid who sells the funny smelling plant to the doctors who skim a bit off the top and make sure the talent has enough pep to keep going.  You’re not a bad guy, you make people happy right?
