Episode Info: There was madness in any direction, at any hour. If not across the Bay, then up the Golden Gate or down 101 to Los Altos or La Honda.… You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning.… And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. There was no point in fighting - on our side or theirs. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. You can go up on a steep hill in Las Vegas and look West, and with the right kind of eyes you can almost see the high-water mark — that place where the nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh finally rose from the waves. Greetings, my horde of ravenous audiovores! Welcome to the second part of my Actual Play of Bad Trip, a 1970s crime drama scenario by Tyler Omichinski for the tabletop roleplaying game Call of Cthulhu! Draft-dodging stoner John Coscarelli has been sent down to Louisiana by an Arkham crime boss. He's arrived at a creepy old plantation house in the middle of nowhere, and been greeted by an even creepier young woman who is showing him around... is that the smell of something fishy on the wind? Bad Trip was initially described to me as a cross between Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas and H.P. Lovecraft, with a splash of John Dies at the End just for fun.
