Masks of Nyarlathotep
      An Epic Call of Cthulhu Campaign

One of earliest human myth cycles is that of the dark trickster. This stranger appears without warning. Before he leaves, the world has been irrevocably changed in some manner. Sometimes this change is seemingly for the better, but more often it is a change for the worst. The trickster brings confusion and chaos into the world of the people, who therefore dread his visitations. Modern men believe him to be a boogey man of simpler, more primitive minds. There are those of us who know otherwise. Those who still fear that the trickster will once again visit our world and change it. Forever.
--From the memoirs of R.L. Cullinan

What This Is
This web site is dedicated to our gaming group as we play through Masks of Nyarlathotep, an epic, continent spanning campaign for Chaosium's Call of Cthluhu role-playing game. The game is set in the world of H.P.Lovecraft, an author who specialized in stories of horror and the occult. Lovecraft's world looks very much like our Earth during the 1920's, but unlike our world (hopefully), humanity shares the universe with darker creatures that come from beyond the stars. These creatures do not exist harmoniously with humanity, and they use their dark powers to manipulate, control, and kill humans to suit their needs and pleasures.

We play the heroes of this world-adventuerers and scholars who fight the tide of evil despite the odds. Our characters risk life, limb and their sanity to defeat the evil that lurks from beyond.

Who We Are
Keeper: Jon
Elizabeth Essex/Journal Entries: Amy
Fr. Vincent Kelly/Jim Ransom/Webmaster: Nathaniel
Adrian Cainesly: Charles
Katya: Jeff
Donald Cartwright: Brad
George Smythe: Kisha

Game over, man.
