Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion PDF
The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion is available directly (and exclusively) from Chaosium's web site. It is wonderful to know that this epic work, dedicated to one of the greatest roleplaying campaigns, will see life and appreciation beyond the Kickstarter.
Thank you to everyone who's been a part of this epic publication, and if you're planning to run Chaosium's Masks of Nyarlathotep, then the Companion may just be a handy thing to have...
Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion - PDF
"Men advised one another to see Nyarlathotep, and shuddered. And where Nyarlathotep went, rest vanished, for the small hours were rent with the screams of nightmare." – H.P. Lovecraft, 1920
"What kind of weapons do Bloody Tongue cultists use?"
"What does the Liber Ivonis contain?"
"What hospitals are there in Mombasa?"
"How do you organise a raid on Gray Dragon Island?"
"What do I do if everybody dies???"
Ever since its release in 1984, Masks of Nyarlathotep has been considered one of the finest supplements for Call of Cthulhu, a roleplaying classic. Countless players have dared to thwart the machinations of Nyarlathotep and plumb the mysteries of the Carlyle expedition. Running this globe-trotting campaign is unfortunately rather a challenge, with scores of NPCs, dozens of locations, hordes of cultists, and at least one very angry Outer God. Needless to say, even the best Keeper could use a little help.
That is where the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion comes in. Drawing on the wisdom and experience of the members of Yog-Sothoth.com, the Companion gathers together tips and advice for Keepers wishing to run Masks of Nyarlathotep. Within these pages are detailed nearly every imaginable facet of the campaign, from starting play to ending things with a bang; explaining, exploring, and expanding the classic work. There is something for everyone, from novice game masters to Grognardian disciples of Cthulhu.
The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion contains:
- A History of the Campaign.
- Keeper’s Tips for organising and running the campaign.
- Tips on how to introduce, use, and kill Jackson Elias.
- Guides to New York, London, Cairo, Kenya, Australia’s Pilbara Coast, Shanghai AND Hong Kong.
- Articles describing and expanding on all of the campaign’s tomes and artefacts.
- Four new scenarios and numerous encounters that can be inserted into the campaign.
- Over two-dozen pre-generated characters plus tips on building better investigators.
Price: £36.49, over 700 pages in length.
