It has been approximately two weeks since the investigation halted in Kenya at a bloody showdown at the Mountain of the Black Wind. Jonah Kensington, mad with power and wanting to wrap up this Carlyle business once and for all; has hired a variety of fellows to get the job done.
We tried our hands at the free game Dawn of Worlds. The sessions are rather long but we doubled the episode length so it isn’t all broken up. The premise was creating a world collaboratively with all the players. This allowed the players to be more invested in this world. Photos beneath the fold.
So it was that in April 1925, four brave souls set out to thwart Nyarlathotep and prevent his unholy spawn from being released upon this world. Few know of this errand, though we all enjoy the victory of their sacrifice.
Find out how the investigators uniquely solve the Colonel’s problem and witness their assault on the Mountain of the Black Wind. This Episode concludes the BRP CoC branch of Masks of Nyarlathotep. The story will continue using the Trail of Cthulhu system.
Grasping at random threads, the investigators find themselves talking to the one man in Kenya who may be able to point them towards their long time nemesis, the Cult of the Bloody Tongue. But before events move too far forward they take time to pursue a red herring.
What mad force urges the investigators to ruthless action against those associated with the cult? Who is the Colonel? Why do the players believe “Nails” Nelson?
After tracking Omar Shakti to the maze beneath the sphinx our investigators are confronted with over whelming horror that they somehow all more or less survive.
I’m not sure what is wrong with my dice but I wasn’t able to kill them. They end up fleeing to Nairobi and beginning new investigations there. With all leads lost or forgotten how will the new team pick up the trail in the sweltering African jungle?
