COC: The Peaslee Formula

So, I’m not going to summarize the adventure, because it is best used as a surprise, but we completed it in two nights of playing and it was a sanity sucker. Several characters are now ready for forced retirement. I’m not sure they will, but it would be better for the world and for them if they did.

The Peaslee Formula was an RPGA Network competition scenario. It was used at Winter Fantasy 2000, according to La Biblioteca de Pnakotos. It was written by Gregory W. Detwiler, who may have been the nom de plume for Greg Stolze ( and Dennis Detwiller (, at least that was the suggestion from Syrinx at They both wrote for Pagan Publishing, so it seems highly likely. I loved their work in Unspeakable Oath. Gregory W. Detwiler was a co-author for “The Land That Time Ignored” in Blood Brothers 1 for “Songs of Fantari” in Fatal Experiments. He (they?) also authored at least one other RPGA scenario, “A Dead Whale or a Stove Boat.” I remember liking that one too. 

Anyway, it was a good adventure. There were unbalanced elements in there that I had to modify as we played, but it was a wild romp that everyone enjoyed. If anyone knows where folks can get it, let me know and I’ll post it here.
