Another new link...

... to a random scenario generator.

This is a great generator for 'Weird World War II' scenarios, but with very little work could be for Cthulhu as well. It's part of the 'Operation: Fallen Reich' site - tagline 'Can Evil Be Stopped In Time For Tea?' which I think is one of the best taglines ever.

I don't play the game so some of the terminology is a bit obscure (I think 'Fallen' are Nazi Black Magicians but I could be wrong about that) but one of the random story generations I just span is: Location - a mental institution; Basic Plot - a child posseses special powers and needs to be baptised; Sub-Plot - the location has bad energy which helps Fallen; Main Villains - a secret society influenced by Fallen. That without too much work could be useful for a lot of games...

The site also includes a brief listing and descriptions of wars from 1920-1940 that British Chaps might be involved in - also useful for fleshing out character backgrounds in Cthulhu/Pulp/Gangster/Very British Civil War games. One of the designers described the game as 'The X-Files sett in WWII with Mulder and Scully replaced by Jeeves and Wooster' - and what's not to love about that?
