MoN - day (8)

As always spoilers below...



04.08.2017 - From Blue Piramid, Mike with his mobster friends went to Misr House just in time to be witness of ritual performed near the obelisk. Massive sanity lost, massive battle and of course some friends die in the middle of this epic battle. Then they search the house and find clues with contacts in Cairo, Nairobi, Australia and Shanghai. Mike calls Barrignton for assistance. Once more mobsters and Police is working together in good cause. 
Anormous battle should be at the end of this chapter, as a culmination point. But for our game it worked well just in the middle of London chapter. But it is not an end to Mike's gunplay in England. Till next time...

MoN - day (7)

As always spoilers below...



23.07.2017. Firstly Mike meets Mahoney. So as everybody in the know knows, there are three clues for players. Mike only intrest in the one important for MoN story. Both two side quests where ignored. Do not know why. Then our hero with two friends meets with Inspector Barrington. In this thrope I've seen another strange friendship in the making. Of course Mike wouldn't be himself if he not search for mob in London. I've create some mobsters for this game and trustworthy taxi driver. After this initial episodes, Pavlowsky went to Penchew Fundations, but meeting with Gavigan went south in true pulp style. So Thompson, cultist and spells have their little window of oportunity. Police with Barington came very quiclky. Fast talk and little spending Luck later, Mike was free and Gavigan behind bars. As for initial session in London, there was many important events. Do not know why Mike ignored two side quests? But as future shows, there is many things to do in London durring Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign...

MoN - day (6)

As always spoilers below...



After events in New York Mike decided to travel to England as his first step in this long journey. He choose to travel in style on board of one of transatlantic ships. Of course first class. He took with him two of his  friends from mob. Jack and Adam. For them I've just copy stats from Pulp Cthulhu for Mock NPC. For now they were cannon fodder for me, but in time they begin buliding up to form very important NPCs. 
Second thing worth mentioning was reading by Mike Pnakotic Manuscripts. Of course there was more to that, then only reading. Sanity loss was important part of this process and of course accumulating of Cthulhu Mythos points. 
I've decided to use rules for traveling, from the MoN book. Couple of skill have little boost. 
This is it. Next time? London!

MoN - day (5)

As always spoilers below...




19.07.2017 - Second session in Our MoN campaign. Another part of New York chapter must have meeting with Erica Carlyle. So I've played this in standard way, with new tropes and information's about Carlyle Expedition. But to make things more... Interesting. Her lover - Bradley Grey meet up with Mike. He give him 50K to kill Roger if he is alive. Mr B. is going to mary Erica and nothing is going to stop him before taking control over her vast money and firms. And for that end, I think it will be nice moral dilemma for Mike. Recive another 50K for killing insane Roger or trying to lie to Grey that he actually do that. We will see in the end what happens! Another thing is building friendship between Mike Poole (cop) and Mike Pavlowsky. Policeman have promotion after Ju-Ju House action (he take all the credit for himself!). So as thank you gift for our hero, he gave him Masks of Hayama. So... This is it. Till the next time!

Mon - day (4)

Day later but here it is...



After all this preparations where over, after initial game of Pulp Cthulhu we started this beautiful (terrifying!) journey. From now on, this entries will be spoiler heavy! So...




16.07.2017 - This was Our first Masks session in witch Jackson Elias invites Mike to his hotel room. After finding that J.E. is dead and fight with the cultist (all end up dead), there is more questions then answers. This is very crucial scene for entire campaign. Finding all this clues cannot be done like from dispenser. So it take us a while. Then first steps in investigation takes place. But Mike is not law abiding citizen, police came very quickly to him. But for the good of investigation, they join forces in this one. From there Mike goes to Emerson Imports, Ju-Ju House. After couple of days observing that place, he takes his men and attacks in the middle of ceremony! Fight erupts. Cultist, Chakota, dynamite (Matt Sanderson style!) and losses of sanity are everywhere. But in the end it all ends well... Maybe let's just say that police force is happy that somebody else does the dirty job for them... 

Till next week...

MoN - day (3)

After all this preparations behind me, there was only one thing to do. Create a character. My wife roll Mike Pavlowsky, using Pulp Cthulhu character creation rules. She decided that Mike will be Cold Blooded Archetype with two pulp talents: Rapid Fire and Hardened. She choose a gangster profession to make a full picture of him. It was a challenge for me to made up some good starting points for knowing him with Jackson Elias, but nothing is impossible if You want to do something.
For testing Pulp System and feel of the game, I've decided to run Shanghai Bullets. But use AP from RPPR as scenario source. Then we start Masks of Nyarlathotep. But this is another story...

This is link to this splendid AP:
