Fond Memories of Masks (spoilers)

Mention Masks of Nyarlathotep to any seasoned CoC player, and you are bound to be hear some cherished anecdote in response. What's yours?

Clearly this thread will contain SPOILERS for Chaosium's campaign, The Masks of Nyarlathotep.

Episode 76 - Style of play in Call of Cthulhu

We were lucky enough to have our good friend and Call of Cthulhu line editor, Mike Mason, with us for this one. Sometimes when I take part in recording a show, the discussion serves makes me aware of things I hadn't realised or considered. This was one such case. I'd considered the various styles of...
