Nyarlathotep: His Part in My Downfall

GM: Roderick Hamilton
Rules: Only War (set in WW2 Cthulhu).
Max number of players: 4

Day: Sunday 29 March.

There’s sand in your shoes, sand in your tank, sand in your cuppa char, and Rommel’s got the Afrika Korps breathing down your neck. The last thing you and the lads need is an encounter with inexplicable forces, knowledge of which could Drive One Mad From The Revelation! Luckily you and the rest of the crew of D for Dragon have what it takes to handle such circumstances – Courage, Pluck, and a few dozen rounds of 75mm High Explosive, courtesy of the Yanks.

This scenario places the players as the crew of a British M3 Grant medium tank in the Western Desert theatre, early 1942. Themes of exploration, adventure, and cosmic horror are expected, no player-versus-player, personal horror or heavy gore. Combat is to be expected but should only take up around 25% of the session. No historical knowledge required, and if you have a lot of it, be prepared to hold it in for the sake of the other players. Nerdy chat is welcome before and after.

This is part of the 1st Go Play Manchester Online meetup on Saturday28 /Sunday 29 March, which you can sign up to here.
