MoN - day (12)

As always spoilers below...

03.10.2017 - End game in Cairo. So firstly Mike meets Janvillen. This side quest is very little and very nice. So there was tension for couple of moments, but even our Hero was under the spell of Bast pristess. Then they went to Dhashur and met Nyarlathotep in his Black Pharaoh avatar. Another questions where raised. But some answers where give to them. Then he went to the other piramid and finds one part of Eye of Light and Darkness! After this event, when another of Mike's friends went insane, he decide to end his stay in Cairo.

For me this is the crown jewel of Masks of Nyarlathotep. Best chapter in whole history. Others are fun too, but this is the best. So after leaving Cairo, nothing will be the same...

MoN - day (11)

As always spoilers below...

19.09.2017 - Mike is learning from good doctor Ali Cafour one spel. Barier of Naach-Titha. Sanity is lost, Mythos knowledge is gained.

20.09.2017 - Nigel Wassif found Warren Bessart. Durring the meting Bessart talks about his work with Clive Expedition. He wants help with his problems, so Mike give him a chance. One chance.

24.09.2017 - The ritual under the Sphinx. Magick, Molotov Coctails, Thompson, Nitocris and lots of fight. Nigel is with our heroes. He reveal that he is from MI6 and call for help English Expeditons Corps. Big battle under the Pyramids and Sphinx.

This part of Cairo chapter is much more action oriented. For everyone, who was bored with investigation, now is the time to make a diffrence. Of course this is pulp game, so every time Mike and his friends are just inch before death. Atmosphere of alienation beneath Sphinx, brutal fight with lots of cultist and more information for the great picture. Everything is here.
Till next time!

MoN - day 10

As always spoilers below...

28.08.2017 - So Mike and his two friends end up in Cairo. First they were overwhelm by language barier, but quickly find translator. Of course it was a trap. Nothing that good shoot from Mauser cannot fix. Or maybe two. First contact in the city is Nigel Wassif.

31.08.2017 - Meet up with Nigel and then with Faraz. Many new clues have to be verified and checked. So they got lot to do this time. Thanks to mister Wassif they got new guide. 

03.09.2017 - Another contact with Faraz. This time, they speak little longer. Another trope goes to doctor Ali Kafour. In the museum they finally have some information's about bigger picture of this whole case. Great N in his many aspects. As for Pulp, there is no need to be gentle. Loss of sanity, gaining Cthulhu Mythos skill and couple of questions are finally answered.

17.09.2017 - Another meet up, this time with Omar Shaktii ends in great battle in the desert. Only by means of luck everybody are safe and sound. But this leads to frontal attacks from Cult of Dark Pharaoh. Their hotel rooms are ramshackle, but most of precious things are well hidden.

Yes. Egypt or should I say Cairo chapter is the best in the whole campaign. Of course if we talking about the old edition. But for me and my player this was so far most demanding but satisfying pice of this story. Lots of detective work in the first part, but later there is only action and horror. Love it! Till next time!

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!
