If you’re anything like me, you may start running Masks of Nyarlathotep and decide that you are in way over your head. I ended up googling “masks of nyarlathotep tips” and I’ve compiled some of the stuff that I used to help me as I went on.
Amazingly, I was too cheap at the time to fork out the money to patronize Yog-Sothoth and get a copy of the Masks of Nyarlathotep companion. Since then, I did fork out some money and boy, this would have been nice to have. This is a huge, 500 page volume filled with information that will make you game easier and content to fill out the various locations – including bonus tomes, spells, and scenarios. If you’re like me and it’s hard to find time to prepare extensively prior to an adventure, this is exactly what you need.
A much shorter article, but with equally good suggestions, can be found on Dennis Detwiller’s blog. Detwiller, creator of the Delta Green Games, claims to have run Masks 4 times, so I suppose that gives him some legitimate authority to be handing out Masks of Nyarlathotep tips.
