Perhaps your investigator becomes the leader during games – a famous author or renowned occultist or perhaps he is just a private eye no better than he ought to be. Perhaps he or she is a top specialist, to whom everyone comes begging when the vital job comes up.
Many games and jobs involve thwarting the malign purposes of the Great Old Ones and Outer Gods. Such challenges may bring a long, rich life, or one as short and dramatic as a falling star. It depends upon fate and upon the player’s attention and care.
Investigators played incautiously will surely die or go insane. The situation is no so different from real life, except that in the game an investigator who stands against evil and does his or her best will always earn respect.
