By on 9 February 2015

Ever since its release in 1984, Masks of Nyarlathotep has been considered one of the finest supplements for Call of Cthulhu, a roleplaying classic.Countless players have dared to thwart the machinations of Nyarlathotep and plumb the mysteries of the Carlyle expedition.Keeping this globe-trotting campaign is unfortunately rather a challenge, with scores of NPCs, dozens of locations, hordes of cultists, and at least one very angry Outer God.Needless to say, even the best Keeper could use a little help.

That is where The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion comes in.Drawing on the wisdom and experience of the members of Yog-Sothoth.com, the première site for Lovecraftian role-playing, the Companion gathers together tips and advice for Keepers wishing to run Masks of Nyarlathotep.Within these pages are detailed nearly every imaginable facet of the campaign, from starting play to ending things with a bang, explaining, exploring, and expanding the classic work.There is something for everyone, from novice game masters to Grognardian disciples of Cthulhu.

The Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion contains:

  • A History of the Campaign
  • Keeper’s Tips for organizing and running the campaign.
  • Tips on how to introduce, use, and kill Jackson Elias.
  • Guides to New York, London, Cairo, Kenya, Australia’s Pilbara Coast, Shanghai AND Hong Kong.

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004.
