The Rise of Nyarlathotep
Welcome to The Rise of Nyarlathotep!
This is the campaign website for my Trail of Cthulhu campaign that will start with a prequel during WW1 and then move onto the 1920s. The campaign will be based on the classic Call of Cthulhu campaign, Masks of Nyarlathotep. Though it would be awesome to complete the entire saga, my goal is to at least get to Africa to ward off the threat of Nyarlathotep and go from there. Not that anyone currently playing has ever played this campaign, I probably will tweak it from time to time. My goal is to try to find that fine balance between Purist and Pulp Lovecraftian style horror. I want the players to feel like they have a genuine shot of success, but death and insanity will occur along the way. This will be first and foremost a campaign of investigation, though combat and epic chases with creatures will not be unknown.
Background information, characters met, and places traveled to will be chronicled in the wiki.
