Masks of Nyarlathotep Companion- first thoughts

I’ve had the draft Companion in my hands for long enough that I’ve actually had a chance to give it a read, all 0dd odd pages of it.  This is not, of course, my first read through of the book, though I’ve not had the pleasure of seeing it all in one titanic file.

A couple thoughts:

First off, I am still extraordinarily happy with the level of support I received from the Yog-Sothoth.com community.  It was very heartening that so many people were willing to contribute their time and labor on this project.  I hope that the book reflects their level of commitment.

Secondly, Adam Crossingham has done a splendid job in laying out the book.  Thanks Adam!

Finally, I’d be happy to answer my readers’ (we have three now) questions about the book (other than regarding issues of release date, price, etc).  If I might suggest some possible topics: inspiration, favorite parts, tomes, art, and process.  I’ll post something, but I figured I might as well go with popular interest…   So then, any questions?

    Actually, I’m a little in awe of the scope of this project – it sounds by far the most ambitious piece of support material for a RPG campaign that I’ve ever heard of. Having been away from RPGs for quite some time, and having only recently acquired an older copy of the campaign, I have not yet read through it cover to cover, so any question I pose is likely to seem spurious to those more familiar with Masks. That being said, my understanding of the Companion project suggests that it could be a useful sourcebook for classic-era scenarios and adventures beyond the Masks campaign itself. Aside from content related to Mythos tomes, any general thoughts to share on the versatility of the book’s content? Also, I’m interested in your research process for emulating period-specific media – are there particular online resources the authors tend to favor, or is much of that work done “boots on the ground” in libraries and archives?
