Masks of Nyarlathotep is a classic (some would say quintessential) campaign for Call of Cthulhu. Given how much we play CoC, I thought it would be remiss of us not to record a run of it. It took us about a year to get through the campaign, but our dedicated group of investigators solved mysteries, fought cultists, and confronted horrible abominations from beyond time and space. I heavily changed the core campaign, using advice from Adam Scott Glancy and the invaluable book, the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion. Find out what I changed and why and how the players thought of the game.
News: RPPR B-Sides volume 2 is coming soon. Volume 1 is free, so check that out, if you haven’t already.
Synopsis: A new edition of Dungeons and Dragons has been released and Bill, Sean, and I have played enough to have opinions that are more than just knee-jerk reactions. In this episode, we talk about the merits of 5E compared to the previous edition, what we like, what we don’t and more. Tom isn’t in this episode, so no letter. We do have shout outs and anecdotes though!
