Tips and Recommendations

General Recommendations

  • Masks of Nyarlathotep is a very, very research intensive game. Be prepared to take notes!
  • Like most classic Call of Cthulhu scenarios, you should also be prepared to handle lots of handouts. I’ll make sure to provide you with a file.

Recommended party composition

In the Realms of Cthulhu book, the following team make-up is recommended. Take some time reviewing these archetypes and see what role you play:

  • The collector gathers physical clues and information. He generally focuses on Notice, Persuasion, Investigation, and Streetwise.
  • The healer provides sanctity of mind, body, or both. He concentrates on Healing, Knowledge (Psychology), and associated Professional Edges.
  • The perpetrator possesses a skill set that can be considered criminal: Climbing, Lockpicking, Stealth, and Streetwise.
  • The scrapper focuses primarily on Fighting and Shooting, and must have the guts to be able to swing a fist or pull the trigger as the need arises.
  • The thinker is an academic who concentrates on Knowledge and Investigation, and their associated Professional Edges.
