My group is starting the Mask of Nyarlathotep campaign. I am planning on doing a small write up of each session as they happen.

We finished the Horror on the Orient Express campign. This will be similar to that thread.

Actual: Jan 7th 2019

Game: March 18, 1921

Our intrepid investigators are Dr. Octavia the former British Army Nurse, Auto the former German U-Boat officer, Charles the Pilot/Airplane designer, Duncan the mobster. All have their reasons for meeting with Augustus Larkin. They meet in Lima, Peru and make plans to heads into the mountains on a search for a forgotten temple. They also meet Luis De Mendoza and Jesse Hughes. After a pleasant dinner they get to brass tacks and try to get to know their expedition leader and the other members of the team. After showing signs of illness Larkin assures the party that he is healthy enough for the expedition and excuses himself to rest and medicate. After the others leave Jesse reveals that he is not actually Mr. Hughes, but instead Jackson Elias an author of some note. He is researching a local death cult and think that Mendoza and Larkin are mixed up in it somehow. He befriends the party and asks to take them to the local Archeology Museum to meet Professor Sanchez.

Most of this session was character creation.

The group meets up at the Lima Archeology Museum on the University Campus. They are joined by Jackson Elias and a new player - Grisley Adams south american meat tycoon. The hope to meet Professor Sanchez and find out more information regarding the temple in the mountains.

They meet Sanchez and he seems happy to help the players with information and state that he has a couple items of note regarding the temple. His assistant is off finding the things needed. He tells them what he knows. A couple investigators decide to help the young assistant with things and they go into the basement trying to find her. Instead they find here desiccated corpse that seems to have been fed on and drained of fluid.

They run to tell the others and meet them on the stairs. Dr. Octavia quickly determines the wounds to be vey unusual and the part find a note book with translations of an old text and a large piece of gold with unusual writing on it.

They try to find the professor only to see that he too has been attacked in his office. They determine that the attacks are unnatural in some way and decide the best course is to take the information they have then inform the authorities. They do a through search of the office and museum to find not much of value beyond what they know.

They reconvene at the hotel and decide to prepare for the trip as expected but also spy on Larkin at his hotel. They find a figure sneaking of the back of the hotel. After following him for a few blocks the figure turns revealing himself to be Luis De Mendoza, Larkin's Assistant. His mouth distends and he attacks Charles and Auto that have tracked him here. A brief fight and Mendoza lies dead on the ground. The two men run back to their hotel.

The day of the expedition comes and Larkin appears distraught over the missing partner. "He has been gone for two days!" They decide to forge ahead without him. The Pilot flys them along the Andes to Merelora (sp?). Here they stay and then take a train into the mountains into Puno.

Jackson tells them of a local that had helped him in the past. After some time they find she is staying one of many floating man made islands on Lake Titicaca.

Date in Game: Late March 1921

Real Life: Jan 21 2019

The characters get a critical success on hiding the bodies of the Kharisari (sp?) that attacked. The weigh them down with rocks in the bottom of the lake.

The next morning they wake to find Larkin looking better than ever. They set off into the mountains. Many of the characters start to suffer the effects of altitude sickness and Charles in particular has to rest. ON the advice they start to chew the leaf of the coca plant. Soon everybody is doing it.

That night Duncan hears something sneaking around early in the morning. He raises the camp, but whatever it was ran into the darkness. As day breaks they head further in to the mountains. Around mid day gun shots are heard. They rush ahead and find a man caring for his son that was attacked. Julio and Domingo were just attacked by some of the Kharisiri. Octavia, saves the young mans life and Julio demands they come to his farm. He feeds them and cares for their pack animals and plays them music on his guitar.

The following day the well rested party heads deeper into the mountains. Octavia notices that Larkin has a tattoo on his chest, but after questioning him he refuses to show it to the others. They see a couple different groups of people in the distance and realize that they seem to be following one unintentionally. As night falls they see ahead of them a man made structure. But have to camp for the night. Soon after most of the party has gone to sleep Grisly hears something in the night. He tries to investigate and sees something coming out of the woods. He raises the party as a Man comes forward his mouth starting to open far too wide. Soon three of them swarm Grisly. The rest of the party scrambles to help as Luis De Mendoza, back from the dead, comes out of the darkness and attacks Duncan. Grisly has vital fluids sucked out of his body and is weakened. The party flight bravely and finally kills the monsters. They quickly burn what is left of the bodies.
