Looking at story stuff for the Oracles... Are we sure we want to recruit these people? We've got somebody who tortured his parents to death to record their screams and a woman with a literal closet full of literal skeletons. The nicest I've seen is the Woman in the Iron Mask out for vengeance.
She's still the Woman in the Iron Mask trying to use us to get her revenge, but yeah, she's the nice one. In comparison, The Lovers has an entire closet full of corpses, the High Priestess and the Emperor abduct people and the Magician murdered his parents and used magic to have their corpses make music for him. I don't know about the rest.
Fraux doesn't seem to bad, just tragic backstory.
That said, getting the Oracles is pretty much on the backburner for now. They'd be nice to have, but I'd rather just finish getting the SSR Damage Boost Arcarum Summons for the moment. It'll happen eventually, but not a high priority for me.
Larry DiTillio, co-author of Masks of Nyarlathothep, one of the best RPG campaigns ever written, has passed. In addition to his role-playing work, Larry was also the author of the story bible for he-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and the executive story editor for Babylon 5.
