This actually works out so well for me as a keeper. The prep I have to do is so minimal. They can only get so far off track in two...

Seven years of sometimes awesome online gaming.

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 26 December 2017 · 322 views

Well I was a little shocked to see that I returned to Cthulhu's slightly damp embrace seven years ago and it was all thanks to the internet and this website. I have gamed with several groups and overall I've been very lucky as so far all the people I have met been fun and enthusiastic about the hobby but there has been a few bumpy patches along the way so...

yock's Lovecraftathon: The Tomb

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 29 July 2017 · 1,036 views

Pushing ahead with one more story review before the end of this month it's nice to get to a longer piece again. I like short stories, but often they are just too short for me, too slight, or too thin an idea padded out. This one looks like a good length, though whether it uses that length well I'll find out shortly as I read. 
Again first person narr...

The Madness is Illusory

Posted by MiskatonicProf in The Zen of the Strange, 25 July 2017 · 719 views

"But it would be dangerous to search too earnestly for the allegorical in Titus Groan . It remains essentially a work of the closed imagination, in which a world parallel to our own is presented in almost paranoiac denseness of detail. But the madness is illusory, and control never falters. It is, if you like, a rich wine of fancy chilled by the intell...

Mythic CoC 02 - It's moving!

http://www.nchistori...ldkyhometom.jpg At the boarding house, the door was opened by a stolid looking Portuguese woman, a miss Ferreira. While seemingly not thrilled to have a visitor, I noticed her looking more than once at the cat on my shoulder with a soft expression, obviously another feline lover. After our exchange she went to fetch...

Azathoth: Cold and Gold

Posted by echofalls in Blog echofalls, 09 March 2017 · 1,089 views

"it is said, that, beneath all the chaos, there is an underlying pattern of perfect order."  Once, there was no change, no entropy. Only the pattern and everything that belonged, designed and created to suit its purpose.
Today, the pattern remains, but only in tatters, warped in new ways. From the echoes of the pattern came change and thought; driv...

British ghost story writer M. R. James was one of the authors singled out for mention in Lovecraft's essay 'Supernatural Horror in Literature' as being one of the modern masters of horror literature.

Film List 1 - Thoughts on describing a film as "Lovecraftian"....

Posted by yronimoswhateley in The Apocalyptic Log of Yronimos W., 22 November 2016 · 1,512 views

Background : It seemed like an easy project at first: I would try putting together a list of "Lovecraftian" films for the YSDC Wiki. What could possibly go wrong? After all, on one hand, there seemed to be only so many films out there that were definitely based on Lovecraft stories, and it seemed that most of us who were familiar with Lovecraft and w...
