Re: The Future of Tabletop Gaming

I've posted a new game thread in Tales of Mystery and Adventure. Wordcraftian, you're more than welcome to join as a player or just follow along if you're curious about how it works. I'll be running Cthulhu Dark, so it might give you an idea of how that system goes. It's much lighter in die rolls, ...

Re: 070 - Of Grave Concern

So, Wordcraftian, I wouldn't want to discourage your enthusiasm for trying it out at home, but I have to say for my part that 1-on-1 is pretty hard to pull off. When I wanted to dive back into RPGs a few years ago, the first thing I did is try to run a solo with my girlfriend just to show her what ...

Re: 070 - Of Grave Concern

I shall download and listen to this episode. I've been curious about this for some time. I recently moved to a different state where I've got nobody but my wife to play with. She's vaguely into the idea of learning how to play and I REALLY want to play more Cthulhu but it's just the two of us. I did...

Re: The Call of Cthulhu film (2005)

Fun question. If you could pick any writer/director and assume they were backed by a staggering budget who would they be, and which story would they adapt? Who would star in what roles? After seeing Pan's Labyrinth, I would put Guillermo Del Torro in the director's chair of ANY Lovecraftian adaption...

Re: Twist on a "Choose Your Own Adventure" game!

1) Take the left fork which leads uphill for some way (a hard muddy slog but less likely to be flooded) You think it better to go left and maintain visibility of the things that may crawl at foot level. Also, if there are other travelers out this late, they would be likely to choose this route as w...

Re: First board game love?

Oh yeah! Risk! I used to love a nice long game of Risk! with my friends and a side or two of rum laden soda. Then I moved and lost my group. :cry:

Re: Lovecraftian Limericks

Of Cyclopean ruins in Maine, I have nothing to show but disdain. Our room was abysmal, The service was dismal; And the things in the dark were profane. Lol, Love that one! So good. Let's see... The tome was quite dusty, and old. It smelled of black sin laden mold. I skimmed it a bit, and had a smal...

Whiskered Fiends

I want to talk about cats. :cthulhudance: It's not easy to forget the silent ingenuity and mass coordination of the cats in Ulthar who judged, sentenced, and executed fully grown human beings. Or the single cat who can sense the unseen horrors lurking within the walls. There are few things more frig...
