Masks of Nyarlathotep Campaign Journal: Chapter 16 - The Rescuers

Leave a Comment
What would become an action packed session started out with a relatively quiet moment.

Willard was dreaming, his imagination fuelled by whatever concoction of drugs Ho Fong had injected him with. He saw himself flying through the stars astride a skeletal winged beast before swooping low over an alien landscape of strange gardens and waterworks.

In the distance a hollow voice was calling out to him in a cursed tongue, but as he flew it got clearer and clearer.

"Wake up! Please!"
Willard's dream
Willard came round, still chained to the wall of the marble chamber. In the glass box in the centre of the room Miss Choi still lay, trapped. She was awake and pleading with him, tears streaming down her face.

"Please, you have to get free... he won't be gone for long. Someone came in and told him about an attack on some warehouse... he looked furious... please, I don't want to be here when he returns... you have to get out.... you have to make it stop, you have to kill me..."

Willard struggled ineffectively, before the darkness rose to take him again. As he drifted back into unconsciousness his eyes were drawn to a strange pattern on the ceiling, which seemed to swim and dance before his eyes.

Masks of Nyarlathotep Campaign Journal: Chapter 15 - Torture Tanks

Leave a Comment
After a five month hiatus due to one of our group having their hands full with a newborn son, it was finally time to return to the horrors of Shanghai in 1925. I was a little concerned with how things would go after such a long break, but after a quick review of the story so far we soon got back into things, with an action-packed session that saw the investigators through a series of successes and saw me scratching my head at the things they came up with!

Cthulhu is back!
We opened with the reveal of what had happened to Willard, who had been captured by a mystery assailant at the end of the last session. As Willard awoke he found that he was tied up against the wall of a small, marble-lined chamber. A familiar voice mocked him, Ho Fong promising him that his turn would be next, along with the rest of his foolish companions once they had been located. As Ho Fong stood aside the meaning of his words started to sink in.

The Hooded Claw

2 comments
I may have been quiet on the blog front recently but I've been pretty busy in gaming terms. Most of my time has been spent playing The Old Republic with my usual group, though unfortunately one of the group has had to drop out, meaning we are currently a threesome (hopefully only temporarily). So, we've been terrorising the galaxy without Hawkwyn, who seems to have found gainful employment running a small base on Belsavis...

Hawkwyn appears to have found a new job...
I'm getting towards the end of the Sith storyline now and it is really picking up into an epic tale. Some spoilers ahead...
