Off to Germany

Posted by Shimmin Beg in Shimmin Bloeg, 09 April 2018 · 81 views

I am about to head on a business trip to Germany; alas, unconnected with the scenario I'm writing and not taking me to its intended location T_T 
I will keep an eye out for Lovecraftian and related goodies while I'm there, and may try to pick up some gaming swag. I've already made the pleasant discovery that Hiveworld is just round the corner from o...

Posted by DeUniversumMysteriis in DeUniversumMysteriis' Blog, 04 March 2018 · 151 views

Forget Me Not (80's edition) - First Session Introduction :
I've run Forget Me Not (Great adventure from The Things We Leave Behind published by Stygian Fox) for three of my friends during two long game sessions. I took the liberty to set the story in 1987 because I wanted to give that "retro" flair to the game for my players. Also, we've used pre-generated characters because I thought it was mor...

Seven years of sometimes awesome online gaming.

Posted by Butters in Blog Butters, 26 December 2017 · 471 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...

Posted by Madam30th in Blog Madam30th, 13 August 2017 · 1,357 views

[spoiler alert - do not read if you intend to be a player in TERROR] I always liked the TERROR scenario: the idea that players are being tested for their loyalty prior to being erased from the living and turned into special agents investigating the mythos that reaches into the very heart of the Soviet state has such pulpy overtones. but the scenario...

yock's Lovecraftathon: The Tomb

Posted by yockenthwaite in Blog yockenthwaite, 29 July 2017 · 1,175 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 · 847 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...

Azathoth: Cold and Gold

Posted by echofalls in Blog echofalls, 09 March 2017 · 1,202 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...

Neilson , a big, fat, ugly doctor.
