In the second episode of the podcast, we run through creating Connections, one of the new mechanics in Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition.
Connections are ties that an investigator has to the good and normal things in life, including comforting beliefs, treasured items and loved ones. These can help the investigator through bad times, but they are also at risk of destruction and corruption at the hands (pseudopods?) of the Mythos.
Join us as we create an investigator background using these rules, explain some of the options and discuss how they can be tailored to your own preferred style of play.
The good news is that we had a better microphone for this episode, so you can actually hear us. The bad news is that I set the recording levels too high, and there is some slight distortion. The next episode is much clearer now that we’ve exhausted most of the mistakes we can make on that front.
There is a small amount of swearing in this episode. We’re British, and swearing is our national pastime. If this is the kind of thing that puts you off a podcast, please let us know in the comments and we can look into bleeping the worst parts should there be demand for it.
