It came up during the last gaming session. The shadowy figure appeared and one of the players drew the following encounter: "Walking along the river at night, you bump into a man smoking a stoagie and wearing a trenchcoat. "You look like a person with problems. It just so happens that my business is making problems go away." You may pay $6 to automatically defeat any 1 non-Spawn monster on the board."

This allowed him to remove that clue-eating monster quite easily. I allowed it, assuming we just got lucky and the masks do not have the red marking spawn monsters do. What's your oppinion on this one?

He got lucky. Masks are not Spawns.

Aye, Masks, sadly, are not Spawn monsters. Nonetheless, I play them as if they were (it has a more interesting strategic implication for me. Otherwise is kinda easy getting rid of them just by closing gates)

Kinda makes me wonder what the guy did to get rid of 'The Shadowy Figure'. Spawn or not, he IS an aspect of Nyarly-poo.

A guy in a trench coat. Must have been an angel of the Lord! And he needed the money for pie.

He could be an investigator from another game :P

Oh Castiel! Is there nothing you won't do for pie!

 That actually makes me wonder even further now about criss-crossing investigations....Maybe I'll try and make a scenario about it.

You could try something about the lines of the Miskatonic University investigating the town of Dunwich, the Federals (or sailors or whatever) investigating Innsmouth and the...strange people (writers, dreamers etc) the city of Kingsport. On separate boards, with maybe 1-2 players/investigators per board, with special rules and objectives of course. Then their successes or failures would have repercussions on the main board, where yet other players/investigators are trying to prevent the rise of the Ancient One. You could have maybe up to 2+2+2+3 players playing at once :)
