Playing Cthulhu Confidential with Colleen Berg, Director Strategic Insights @ The Palmerston Group (part 1)
Colleen is a fellow strategist based in Canada, as well as a tabletop roleplaying gamer who regularly plays Dungeons & Dragons. I had the chance of being on a panel with Colleen for an episode of Mark Pollard's Sweathead podcast about freelancing (along with Lani Dourado as well), which is where I found out Colleen played Dungeons & Dragons.
I reached out to her and asked if she'd be up for an "actual play" podcast episode, to try out the Gumshoe One-2-One game system with Cthulhu Confidential, an investigative roleplaying game designed to blend the styles of films noir and H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror.
It's the first time I publish a whole episode of play (mixed in with some thoughts about strategy), I'd love to hear what you think of it! This is the first of a series to play through the story titled "The Fathomless Sleep," taking place in a fictional 1937 Los Angeles.
In case you read this soon after publishing, Colleen is going to be speaking at the exciting Sweathead Do Together online Conference on the 22nd and 23rd September 2021, you can check it out and sign up here.
