A couple comments on Episode 110

There's a Trail of Cthulhu campaign that uses the you-get-a-pile-of-documents approach called "The Armitage Files." I haven't run it, but I'd like to some day. The whole campaign is supposed to grow out of how players interpret the handouts they're given.

Here's a link to a review of it: https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/15/15383.phtml.

Also, Lovecraft does have at least one story where he does go into depth about a mysterious underground realm: "The Mound" (http://www.hplovecraft.com/writings/texts/fiction/mo.aspx) which is a collaboration with Zealia Bishop, although it reads very much like Lovecraft wrote the vast majority of it.

Anyway, I love listening to your show. As a fairly new Keeper who'd previously only played in/run Pathfinder, it's really helped me get a handle the very different approach of CoC and Lovecraftian/horror games more generally.
