Call of Cthulhu: Masks of Nyarlathotep 3 (London)


#1

For the previous chapter, see Call of Cthulhu: Masks of Nyarlathotep 2 (New York).

Session 13 - A Few Sweating Men: At long last, we arrive in England. Oh, is that the time?

Session 14 - Standard Reference Pharaoh: Investigating the British clues. Why don’t we trust a man we haven’t even met?

Session 15 - Rhythmic Pumping from Below: Or, Penetrating Penhew. Well, not the man himself. That would be silly.

Session 16 - A Hand Up the Greasy Chute: The penetration of Penhew continues, and we meet an unexpected ally.

Session 17 - A Man-Sized Hole in the Norfolk Fens: We make some plans. They probably aren’t good plans. But they will be lots of fun.

Session 18 - Just About to Go All Sid James: The Blue Pyramid is not quite as we expect. For one thing, it’s not on fire even when we leave it.

Session 19 - When A Man is Tired of Taking Cover in London: We trust nobody. But they do seem to be leading us in dangerous directions, so what-ho.


#2

And because I can, the main lounge at the Adelphi in Liverpool, which is a duplicate of the ones on the Olympic liners.

I think there was one in New York as well, but I don’t now know where it was.


#3

East coast, just along from Boston.


#4

Can I say I am amazed the party did not land on a “blighted Heath” outside of Arkham and then proceed on with no further mention.


#5

It’s only blighted once we’ve left town…


#6

I dint know about blighted, but it would certainly be blasted if Roger’s other CoC was around…


#7

Not that he’d really be suitable for a globe-trotting campaign. “You arrive in Egypt… oh, look, Hanrahan’s been arrested again.”

Session 14 - Standard Reference Pharaoh: Investigating the British clues. Why don’t we trust a man we haven’t even met?


#9

It saves time, mainly.


#10

Session 15 - Rhythmic Pumping from Below: Or, Penetrating Penhew. Well, not the man himself. That would be silly.


#11

Is the rap absent from this episode?


#12

Yup. I thought I’d save that for a sufficiently special occasion.


#13

My imagination is too mean to conceive of such an occasion.


#14

Is it kept behind glass to be smashed in case of emergency?


#15

Alternate intro for the Kenya chapter, should we live so long. If you do cultural appropriation completely wrong, does it still count?


#16

It will certainly be counted against you.


#17

I don’t think I was especially channelling Kenyan vibes.


#18

I think I saw Kenyan Vibes once, when he was playing the marimba for George Melly.


#19

Session 16 - A Hand Up the Greasy Chute: The penetration of Penhew continues, and we meet an unexpected ally.


#20

Session 17 - A Man-Sized Hole in the Norfolk Fens: We make some plans. They probably aren’t good plans. But they will be lots of fun.
