17.12.2017 - If You want to find someone, with good attitude You will find. So Brady is at last found. Many questions are answered during this meeting. Blasphemous Tome comes back to his owner but it is good transaction. Crazy Lin Tang-Ju decides to help Mike with attack on Grey Dragon Island. New China communist also, so there we have Mike with Jack, two gorillas and bunch of commies. True Pulp Style!
25.12.2017  - Attack on Grey Dragon Island. Thompson, shoggots, deep ones, gorillas and everything in between is going to clash in truly epic style! There are no word for this last showdown with Nyarlathotep cultist. The rocket is destroyed, many artifacts are retrieved and place is sealed by Eye of Light and Darkness.

31.12.2017 - In New York Mike meets up with Kensington and talks about future book, that they want to write about all this mess. Somebody interrupts this nice dinner. Man from Bradley Grey - who give Mike a request on the very start of this story. Last showdown with Bradley Grey ends this story with our hero standing in lawyer office after battle with him and his hired guns. The Police is coming very quickly.

What a ride! 22 hours of play. 30 sessions of moderate length. The story, the mood, the pacing, everything is very nicely done. Even when my wife bypass Australian chapter, the story still hold strong. Pulp system is very, very good. Just what I dream of for so many years since first previews of this book. Cannot wait to see what changes has been made with new edition! And last but not least: Thank You everyone for reading this scribble!

MoN - day (14)

As always spoilers below...

25.10.2017 - After coming to Nairobi, Mike with one of his companions eats dinner in hotel restaurant, then went to Nairobi Star publishing house. Another information's are gathered during talk with miss Smythe-Forbes. Thandoor Sigh attacks again, but this time Mike is seeing him. So both heroes went to attacker house and burn this place to the ground.

31.10.2017 - Day after above events, Mike meets with doctor Starret,  Montogomery and Bumpington. The day is ending with meeting Nelson and obtaining information that Jack "Brass" Brady is still alive! After this, they decide firstly to went in couple of days inland, see the place of massacre of Carlyle Expedition and the Mountain of the Black Wind.

11.11.2017 - Another day starts with breakfast with Croydon, then meeting Kenyatta. From there on it is only  road to village and another meeting, this time with Okum and old Bundari. M'weru is the most interesting topic in whole conversation. Then they go back to Nairobi, to plan another step.

19.11.2017 - After taking with them Kenyatta, Nelson, Okum and Bundari (with gifts from him!), they went to Mountain of the Black Wind, where strange and blasphemous rites are being celebrated. The son of Nyarlathotep is born. Great scene with lots of sanity loss, but Mike shoots M'weru, create a chaos in Nyarlathotep temple, then escapes. This is Pyrrus victory. His last friend is insane and need to be send out to NY, Okum is dead and Kenyatta is shaken. The Black Wind was release on African continent. Journey back to home is long and dangerous...

As always in first days in new place, hero is gathering information, building momentum for the last act. End event is even bigger then under the pyramids, more dangerous, but with help of Bundari, pulp rules and lot of burning luck is doable for one player. Till next time...
