I dug out Shadows of Yog-Sothoth again last night and ran a new group through the first adventure (The Hermetic Order of the Silver Twilight). As I prepared for this, I realized there was a lot of detail missing. The adventure stated there were 60 Keepers of the Silver Gate, 24 Knights of the Outer Void, and 5 Sons of Yog-Sothoh, but it didn’t give details on any of them. Since most of the adventure is taking part in the Order’s activities and talking to its members, it is important to have those people detailed in some way. As it was, only Carl, John, and Max are detailed, which makes it very easy to decide who the bad guys are. So I created a full list of all 214 members, including all the servants. In the original adventure, only men could join the Order, but since most of my players were women, I changed that and made the order open to both. This was the 1920s after all, an era of the Sexual Revolution. Women were smoking, dressing outrageously, driving cars, working, and using the diaphragm. Allowing both sexes into what essentially a speakeasy and lodge didn’t seem too much of a stretch, so this members list includes both men and women. Please use this list of the members for your own games, as long as you are not charging for it. If you’re making money off it (which I doubt), please contact me and let’s talk! By the way, big thank-you to Joe Apple for his List of Random Names generator. That was a big help!
