Mr Jensen has been getting previews of the session tapes, and came up with this. I'm particularly amused by his ideas about parallels with other pop-culture -
The Temptation of Harry Johnson by ~mokkurkalfe on deviantART
An illustration for Drhoz' & the Perth Gamer Guild's game of Call of Cthulhu: Masks of Nyarlathotep; a recent episode had the much-beleagered agent Harry Johnson in a pickle - faced with the inquisitive questions from a female (gasp!) reporter, should he reveal to her the cruel, dark truths of reality, or find another solution?
Perhaps I'm reading too much into these games, but it's interesting to note that the main villain/Great Old One/Outer God/supernatural-embodiment-of-the-Mythos of the current campaign (Nyarlathotep) is also known to manifest in the guise of the Father of All Bats (i.e. the gawddamn Batman). Meanwhile, the intrepid band of erstwhile investigators combatting the nebolous forces of San Bat, are led by McGinty (AKA the New England **** Vortex, the Giggling Madman, the Drunk Irish Joker etc) and agent Rondale (a young man with a zealous determination to fight criminals and cultists alike, who suffered grievous facial injuries during the course of his career, and whose player has now adopted a new character: the faceman-stabbing maniac, Lord Frontbottom; a decidedly TWO-FACED approach to the Call of Cthulhu RPG).
Oh, and we mustn't forget Aldous Quinn: a brawny behemoth who quickly came to fear, respect and adore Paddy McGinty (any claims you may have heard that Aldous is the illegitimate lovechild of Solomon Grundy and Harley QUINN, are totally spurious and vicious rumours!) ;P
