Re: GenCon 2013

That's unfortunate Dan. I hope the necessary funding comes through in time for you to make it.

Re: MU Podcast 036 – Sammons and Celluloid

Great show as always! I have something to admit. I've never seen Angel Heart. Part of the reason, despite hearing that its an excellent movie, is that I know what the twist is. To me, this makes it not worth watching. Should I still see it? Is there more to it than the twist? Absolutely! It's a ste...

Re: Sadly, but not unexpectedly

Perhaps my language was a little strong and I didn't mean to offend, however if Mr. Braff wanted to put some of his own coin down on a project he is so driven to make and feels it must be done, I'm sure he can front a little of his own dough to get it off the ground. Now obviously he doesn't have te...

Re: Sadly, but not unexpectedly

The story made it to the Gawker family today ( on Valley Wag specifically ), as this appears to be a potent example of a pitfall with Kickstarter. However I'd like to think it's an exception to the norm for Kickstarter. While Chevalier may not have started out to defraud anyone, $122,000 is a hell o...

Re: MU Podcast 035 – 7th Ed Postmortem

Lots of good stuff on that list Dr. Gerard. As for Argento I'd highly recommend watching "Bird with the Crystal Plumage" and "Deep Red" - his two best in imho. Carpenter's "The Thing" is definitely my favorite horror film of all time. That being said, one that's a close second is Georges Franju's "E...

Re: MU Podcast 035 – 7th Ed Postmortem

While most don’t have an obvious Lovecraft influence, some Italian Giallo films of the late 60s and 1970s share some Lovecraftian tropes like a lone investigator type caught up in solving a mystery (usually gruesome, bizarre murders) that occur by some unexplainable or supernatural force. Some of th...

Re: Colonial Lovecraft Country - playtesters needed

That sounds great. I'm mostly available for the next couple of months however I can't participate Thursday July 18th - 21st, and also August 22nd -25th as I'll be in Providence for Necronomicon. Hopefully those dates won't interfere.

Re: Playtesters Needed - 28 June

I'd like to join in if there's still room. I've been a keeper recently for several sessions, but it's literally been decades since I was a player. It's like riding a bike though, right? Although not too many bike rides end in sanity blasting madness. Regardless, I’m game if there’s an opening.

Re: Introduce Yourself

My name is Tim and I first played Call of Cthulhu back in the mid 1980s for several years and sort of drifted away from roleplaying games, but I’ve been trying to step back into playing CoC specifically since last fall. I’m hoping to make some CoC acquaintances through the forum as I’m looking to do...
