There's Mythos in my Mythos!

Have any of you ever run a game, or played one where the complete works of H.P. Lovecraft existed within the game's universe? If so, how were they used? If not, would you ever incorporate them in future games and how would you use them? My thought is that the game would have to be set in modern time...

Re: Poll- Podcast rating-my 2 cents.

I like the language of the shows. Not swearing in the main show makes it sound a little more professional, and the swearing that happens in the live play adds color and depth. Helps make the experience a little more relatable, I think. I say keep up the great work.

Re: The Call of Cthulhu film (2005)

I like what they did with the Call of Cthulhu adaptation, showing the story through the film media that was available during the time Call of Cthulhu was set. It serves to excuse the low budget and add layers of entertainment value.

Re: Your ideas for show topics

What are your thought's on playing without a written scenario? "Winging it" if you will. The keeper I played with is a Lovecraft fan, and has read the Keeper's Manual, so he knows the creatures and the stats, but he's essentially making up the scenario as we go. Do you feel this can improve the expe...

The Future of Tabletop Gaming

With the advent and growing popularity of Tablet/Smartphone technology, I wondered if any of you have found a good virtual/editable character sheet to use on such devices. Or if you know any app makers who are currently working on a Call of Cthulhu Tabletop companion app. An ideal app would contain ...

Lovecraftian Limericks

He sleeps in R'lyeh down below.
Where horror abounds under toe.
You thought he was dead,
But he's back in his bed,
And he waits for the right stars to glow.

Re: Introduce Yourself

This makes me so happy to hear that folks who have never played an RPG before are giving it a try. This hobby has been such a wonderful source of friendship and entertainment for me over the last 20+ years, and I'm thrilled to help bring it to new people. Wordcraftian, I apologize for the poor mann...

Introduce Yourself

Hello, my handle is Wordcraftian chosen to represent my love of writing, crafting words, and the obvious nod to "Lovecraftian" inspiration. I've been a listener since episode one, where I happened to stumble upon it whilst searching iTunes for Lovecraftian Podcasts. Prior to listening to this Podcas...
