A few months ago there was a list of links to classic video game emulators posted.
Very recently, I'm pleased to report, those links all came true
. The Internet Archive bespoke upon aforementioned consoles, computers, and mileposts on our way to the tech utopia of today, (seriously, where's my flying car?) and they asked us to do something: Imagine every computer that ever existed, literally, in your browser
. And it was so.
I have absolutely no affiliation with jscott
, btw. Thought I should disclose that.

Among tabletop RPG players and in particular among Call of Cthulhu players, Masks of Nyarlathotep
is often held to be the gold standard for adventures. A sprawling mystery that begins with a murder in New York City and takes the investigators on a world-spanning chase to London, Cairo, the interior of Kenya, outback Australia and Shanghai, trying to prevent the opening of the Great Gate and the return of the elder gods who will end the world, it does not lack for ambition. Created by Larry DiTillio
with editorial assistance from the late Lynn Willis
, Masks is rated #1 by a wide margin of the 4,254 adventures reviewed on RPG.net
. The Call of Cthulhu website Yog-sothoth.com
, to celebrate the site's fifteenth anniversary, is making available a pdf of the Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion
: 570 pages of behind-the-scenes info for running the campaign. [more inside]
