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.

Well, my group did the unexpected and stole the cultists boat once it arrived in Hong Kong. We then proceeded to repaint and rename it before registering it to one of the party members. Thereafter (for the Egypt, African and Australian portions) had free transportation, but only after our Keeper required us to hire on a Captain. And despite having no navigation or pilot boat skills, my Professor became the de facto First Mate while our lawyer became the de facto 'Engineer'.

Also, while in China, we meet an interesting fellow named Mao and introduced him to the Communist Manifesto. We became convicted that because of this, and the help we gave on the island, that there are statutes of the party members standing somewhere in modern day China. And maybe a little veneration here and there as 'heroes of communism and the people'.

We also carpet bombed the mansion in England with Molotov cocktails and dynamite instead of going inside and finding all the tomes and other information inside. It was especially amusing to note that our Keeper had been studying hard to prepare and that we had effectively nullified a lot of his hard work on the matter. Oh, and while finding the shrine in the enclosure we ended up killing some crocodiles because the "blinked" and were thereby going to attack us.
