Well look what the cat dragged in. I don’t have any idea when or if I’ll ever be able to run Masks of Nyarlathotep again, but when I do, I’ll have these things, because I’ve backed this amazing Kickstarter for these prop documents/aids for your Masks of Nyarlathotep game.
At this rate, Kickstarter will bankrupt me, given I’ve got to back this and The Dracula Dossier, both of which I’m into for more than $50 apiece.
More information below, culled from the Kickstarter product page.
A film-quality set of redesigned handouts and props for Masks of Nyarlathotep, a campaign for the Call of Cthulhu RPG.
The basic set includes forty-five individual handouts -two full-sized newspaper front pages, a pocket journal, a book of matches, several scrolls, numerous clippings, telegrams, letters, etc.- all lovingly reproduced from the originals available in the Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign book.
Designing this set, the most important priority was realism. To this point, great lengths have been taken to achieve a remarkable level of historical accuracy- helping produce a highly immersive environment for players and keeper alike.
If you’re looking to build a believable world for your players, this set was designed for you.
It’s very cool that Chaosium is licensing this stuff now, I feel like their general attitude towards such things has greatly improved over the past ten years or so.
