comment Modern or future polar horror adventure
I'm not exactly looking for a game/system here. What I'm trying to find is a pre-written adventure (for any suitable game) - like Chaosium's Beyond the Mountains of Madness (see the Q) - that details the technology, hazards and personnel typically found in such a polar setting.

comment What are the main factors to consider when a PC gains a major airport in V:tM?
A definite +1 for "Owning is not controlling." Exercise too much direct control, and you risk breaching the Masquerade. An airport depends on tons of outside factors not controlled by its owner: land and air transportation companies (who own and fly the actual planes), fuel suppliers, state and town supervision and services etc - and most of these will be controlled by vampiric and other supernatural powers way above those playing in even a metropolis. Botch a step and you're up against a Justicar... or worse. It's like owning a horse racing venue where the horses & jockeys belong to the mobs.

Quite an interesting question, especially as it differs rather strongly from my usual take on the (n)WoD. It seems like you're into a strategic & management game (that reminds me of board games and city simulation computer games) instead of the "personal horror" path that focuses on story, and, consequently, on those aspects of such a management issue that come to play a serious, meaningful and relevant part in the actual plot - one or two airport-specific issues per session.

comment Metafictional Lovecraft in a Call of Cthulhu campaign
I've just been pointed (via a different route) to a certain, similarly metafictional comic "Lovecraft is Missing". The first few pages seem really interesting and nicely done. I'll have to try and read the whole thing someday soon.

No (but the Amazon reviews don't really seem to favor it.)

Check these two questions and their answers, I think you may find them useful: Is there a system for modeling insanity in d20 3.5? and Introduce CoC d20's spell costs into DnD3.x

comment How does nWoD's Secret History (The God Machine) chapter relate to the other core books?
@Jadasc I'm sure you're aware of this, but WW seems to have started an official chronicle detailing the God Machine etc. I haven't had the chance to read it yet... except for the excerpt whose "The Truth" section confirms that it all was just mysterious, mad rambling... until now. Do you think it would be worth updating the Q and your A somehow? Or start a new one and reference that one here in an edit?

comment Please stop giving the town sheriff a noogie!
@LitheOhm The "are you sure" approach is not really in-game (which you asked for), imo, but it might work indeed. (I thought you've already tried that.)
