The year is 1935. The worst of the Great Depression is over, but many people still suffer its effects -- especially those who were already disadvantaged before the crash. An 'alphabet soup' of government programs have been founded to give people work, and to improve the lives of the American people.

Among these is the TVA -- the Tennessee Valley Authority. Granted unprecedented powers by the federal government, this agency has been given the task of bringing modern education and amenities to the people of the Tennessee Valley. To educate them in more efficent farming techniques and introduce them to more potent fertilisers, to replant their forests and fight forest fires, and to construct dams with which to electrify the region. Most of the time, these proceedings go fairly smoothly. But occasionally, there will be problems. In these cases, small groups of problem-solvers brought together by the TVA may be called in, to assist and find a way to fulfill the TVA's goals while keeping conflict minimal.

You are one such group -- sent to Western North Carolina, to provide assistance in modernising the small communities still hidden in the mountains surrounding Asheville, that famous city called "the Paris of the South." Its beauty is unmatched, but there is darkness still to be found here, in the land of the sky.





List will be added to as more resources are found.

Below is the player application for The Land of the Sky. If you're interested in being involved in the game, please fill it out and either leave it as a reply below (all applications will be screened for privacy), or email it to the Keeper at shaladox at

Keep in mind that this is just a player application. Characters will be rolled up once players are accepted. Please do give examples of the sorts of characters/character concepts you think you would enjoy playing, though -- it gives the Keeper good ideas, and most of the time at least part of said concept(s) can be incorporated into your final character. (If not on the first try, then on the second... or third... or tenth... Ah, CoC.)

Reasons you want to play in Land of Sky:

What kind of character are you interested in playing?
Have you ever visited North Carolina/Tennessee/the southern part of the US, or lived there for any length of time? If so, please provide details.

This being a Call of Cthulhu game, there will be mature themes and graphic descriptions of such. (Sex, violence, language, grotesque deformities, other degenerate behavior.) Are you prepared for this?

This being a Call of Cthulhu Game, your character will almost inevitably die eventually. (Or not-so-eventually.) Are you prepared for this, and willing to accept character deaths with a minimum of wailing/gnashing of teeth?

This being a game set in the southern U.S. in the 1930s, there will be racial and sexual discrimination. This will not be shied away from, or sugar-coated. Are you prepared for this, and willing to accept the consequences should your characters go too far against the status quo?
