Fugue State is April’s adventure for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game.
After colliding with a temporal anomaly in the time vortex the player characters find themselves in 1915 Providence. Upon arrival they see a young HP Lovecraft being escorted into a coach. Background atron energy radiates from the man. This adventure perfect for a time travelling or even time agency adventures. Inspired by the works of HP Lovecraft, Fugue State deals with some of the themes seen throughout Lovecraft‟s work in particular; forbidden knowledge and inherited guilt.
I was torn between two concepts for this month’s adventure, unable to choose between; an adventure featuring David Cronenberg or one featuring HP Lovecraft. Though I really wanted to run a horror adventure with body horror themes familiar with Videodrome, Scanners and Naked Lunch, in the end I chose to go with Lovecraft in the end because the Lovecraft’s themes of inherited guilt tied in with the greater campaign’s theme of progeny.
