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:

Shanghai Bullets RPPR

Mon - Day (2)

Today I would like to show You one thing, I've prepare for Our Masks campaign.
It is Eye of light and darkness. I was so sad, that I didn't have sources to back up Delphes Kickstarters:

New York and Kenya Props

London and Kairo Props

But if You do, You are very lucky men!

Back to Our campaign... I know that this particular handout is very iconic (with the matchbox and masks of Hayama). So... I made up my own.
Here it is:




So... Here it is...
Till next... MoN day!

MoN - day!

In recent post I've started talked about our Mask campaign. This time I want to talk more about prepping and about listening to some very important voices in community. Thanks to this podcast I've become better Keeper...

First and most important:

Good Friends of Jackson Elias!

There is no other podcast like that! Informations from this guys are pure gold!

Dhole House

For handouts and PCs! Very user friendly!

YSDC MoN Maps Thread!

This thread is something that You should check out, especially before new edition!

Oh! And another important handout:

Keepers Decks

Because not everyone have to know what Thompson machine gun looks like or remember what is the range of dynamite! Maybe NPC deck is not so important in this campaign, but others are in constant use!

So this is for today MoN - day!
Thank You!

Mask of Nyarlathotep Prolog

This is first post about our ongoing at this moment game. Let's say it is a prolog to more substantial information we provide later. This post is spoiler free so everyone can read it without fear of losing surprise.

Since July we are playing an epic campaign Mask of Nyarlathotep. We are using first and only Polish edition of this book from 1998.



But we made couple of changes to make it easy and more consistent.
First of all this is only one Player and one Keeper game. Based on many, many reports including actual plays from (We recommend to listen to this wonderful games before running this monster!):

AP of Masks from YSDC

and

AP of Masks from RPPR

we decide to run it with Pulp Cthulhu rules. To make it more player friendly and haven't to many TPKs.


As for the many handouts included in the book, we bought Mutable Deceptions from Cthulhu Reborn, to use them in creating the newspaper clippings. Strongly recommending this product!

As for keeping track of all the NPC in Masks, for me I've scan and create a little booklet with them. Something I've stole from Keepers Resource Pack for The Two-Headed Serpent. You can look at it under this link:

Two-Headed Serpent



For my one player, I've created this little one page NPC sheets. It is easier to keep track of many, many NPCs encountered during play .


That's it for the first time...

Two-Headed Serpent

Just recently we received Two-Headed Serpent campaign. If only we wasn't in the middle of MoN affair, we probably jump right in in this globe spanning adventure of Pulp and Wonder!
The book is beautiful and very well written. It is not surprise from authors like Good Friends of Jackson Elias fame. Cannot wait to run this monster one day.
Maybe next year?
