I expect everyone doesn't really have questions so much as loud, shouty demands.


Stuff like, "No bugs!!" and, "No burnt edges!", that sort of thing? ;)


btw, my aim is not to start another "CoC 6th ed layout sux and here's why lol" thread here. That horse has been beaten, bludgeoned to a pulp, and reduced to its essential saltes. Everyone is aware of the shortcomings of that design, and we're going to strive to make it as Keeper and Investigator friendly as possible. Promise. :)

I get the impression Cultos Innombrables (Nameless Cults) is some sort of Spanish RPG/supplement where you play as cultists. Unfortunately no hablo español, so it's a little hard to tell.


Wow, that's my website :-D

That's right, 'Cultos Innombrables' (Nameless Cults) is a Spanish RPG by Nosolorol where you play cultists and followers of the Great Old Ones. Unfortunately it's still unpublished, it's expected by the end of the present year.

Saludos,
Entro

Congratulations!

And it's good to hear that we're getting a new Keeper's Screen. The most recent one is gorgeous, except for that whole the-rules-not-matching-the-game thing.

I just feel bad actually reiterating my suggestions, because if I really felt strongly about it I just should've bid for the job. (That said...)

So I remembered an old web page and took another look at it. Here's a collection of 101 images of Cthulhu, some good, some terrible, most in between: http://www.thelovecr...at-cthulhu.html

I did some reverse image searches for the ones I really liked, and found where they came from. Here are the ones that I could find, and that weren't already published by Chaosium
(to my limited knowledge):
http://www.myconfine...rough-the-mist/
http://nebezial.devi...ising-142153261
http://angelineorell...assignment.html
http://nachomolina.d...HULHU-131224443
http://davidellisart...11/cthulhu.html

It's a pity that a lot of the best ones I actually couldn't track down.

I'd like it if any given piece of art in the book could be used as a handout.

Kinda-off topic, but not necessarily (and I didn't know where else to bring it up without making a new thread.

If I may make a suggestion, can they not use a hard-to-read font (nothing too fancy or looks like calligraphy)? Also, I would really prefer no background on the text pages (like that distracting one with the insects). It really triggers my phobia/hatred of bugs and that would really be a problem for me as a keeper and player if I skieve reading the book. :)

For me, Michael Kormarck is the best Fantasy/horror/cthulhu artist around.

Is it possible to not have the bugs / burned edges after all? It would do wonders for my hatred/phobia of insects in that I could actually run a game without being severely creeped out over the contents. :)

How do you feel about the French book's design? I think that will say a lot. Personally, I like it.
