I’m looking for some practical advice on how to prepare for a session of Cthulhu Confidential. I’m a novice GM with some dozens of sessions of other games under my belt, but this will be my first one-2-one session.
A CC scenario (specifically I’m running Fatal Frequencies) is very structured and detailed, with dozens and dozens of facts to keep in your head.
Normally when running with a party of > 2, the GM can use the space where the players are bantering/planning to reference their notes. With CC, consulting notes will result in what is essentially dead-air.
I’d appreciate some practical advice for preparing for a session, or failing that, just “this is how I do it” responses.
- What sorts of notes on NPCs and Scenes do you write? In what format?
- How do you remember quick details of Scenes and NPC
