    About the adventure

    It’s 1925, and you have been summoned to the Greatest City in the World – New York City – to fulfill the dying wishes of your associate, and friend, Jackson Elias. What happens next places you on a collision course with the cults of an alien god as you investigate the disappearance of an ill-fated archaeological expedition, and uncover a terrible plot on which the fate of the world hinges. The Masks of Nyarlathotep is an epic campaign for Call of Cthulhu that spans the entirety of the globe. As the investigators, you will seek answers to the questions posed by Jackson Elias, search for the remnants of the missing Carlyle Expedition, and attempt to avoid a slow descent into madness as you seek to prevent the cults of Nyarlathotep from enacting the “Great Plan,” and bringing about the consumption of the world!

    Gameplay details

    Masks of Nyarlathotep is a game of cosmic horror. As such, there may be elements of the game that are uncomfortable, and dark. Bearing this in mind, each player will receive a link to a Consent checklist, where they will be able to mark what they are and are not uncomfortable with. In addition, at the Session 0, everyone will be provided the opportunity to express any concerns they may have about the game and/or setting.
