    Now I gotta dig out my anthology and read them all over again.

    Plus maybe play Call Of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

    I never quite beat that game. It kinda goes to shit once you get a gun anyways. Although the Dagon fight was fucking incredible.

    The D20 Call of Cthulhu book had a picture of the Colour from Outer Space.
    I don't think they really grasped that the Colour was not a color from our spectrum.

    d20 cthulhu missed the point of a lot of things

    now that i've played chaosium i will never go back

    Hell, chaosium cthulhu is just a damn good system, on top of getting the setting right. It is almost definitely my favorite, followed possibly by 4th Ed Shadowrun, although I have not played that nearly enough to pass all too much judgment. Also Iron/Jadeclaw were both very good.

    Ori had an online game going for a bit and was promising more afterwards, but I don't know if we're going to keep with that.

    it is really not a good campaign, i was reading it and i don't really want to run it anymore

    the only cool thing is when you visit carcosa and then it's rushed through anyway

    I wanted to get the sourcebook for the Dreamland rules if there is such a thing.
    All I know is that I downloaded a character sheet that had Dreamlands on the top.
    Could never find it though.

    So for my final project in graduate school I wrote an adaptation of HW:R and did a staged reading of it. I always wanted to try and see it get produced but as of yet haven't.

    no, i did this as a capstone to the year and a half long running reanimator joke

    i almost did the doom that came to sarnath, but it is weird and sad and cosmic and a pretty big departure from the lovecraft that the average joe is familiar with

    so i went with something a bit more traditional so as to not disappoint the casual fan

    THAT BASTARD

    ps: dreams in the witch-house is one of my favorites and the masters of horror treatment really didn't do it justice.

    i have the perfect concept for a Rats In The Walls movie but it will have to wait until i have proven that giving me money to make movies is a good idea, because i will need to do it up proper.

    mostly because the sets have to be fucking awesome.

    I recently bought dreams in the witch house done in the masters of horror. It was...decent, i think. But Re-animator scared the piss out of me the first time i read it. awesomeness knob.

    Are you fucking kidding me? The Dreams in the Witch House Masters of Horror was terrible. Like all Lovecraft adaptations it was bound to fail. I had my hopes high on that one though, dunno why.

    well, it is certainly a fact that he was terrified of black people

    i chalk it more up to the times, though

    plus his stories aren't completely devoid of sympathetic characters of other races, so i dunno

    he was a weird kitty

    Xenophobia was normal for the people of the early 20th century, so how can we blame him?

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.
    My penis is like a toddler. A toddler—who is a perfectly normal size for his age—on a long road trip to what he thinks is Disney World. My penis is excited because he hasn’t been to Disney World in a long, long time, but remembers a time when he used to go every day. So now the penis toddler is constantly fidgeting, whining “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How about now? Now? How about... now?”
    And Disney World is nowhere in sight.

    The way his wiki article describes his death is pretty fantastic.
    wikipedia wrote:
    In 1936 he was diagnosed with cancer of the intestine and he also suffered from malnutrition. He lived in constant pain until his death on March 15, 1937

    Also, The Whisperer in Darkness, so wonderful.

    I did research on him in University.

    Apparently he was very xenophobic until he started travelling abroad and started meeting lots of black people and even befriending them. After that there were more sympathetic characters.

    I consider Herbert West: Reanimator to be in poor taste.

    Reading the same descriptions of West and his experiments 5 times got a little old. Downside to serialized stories, I suppose.

    He also hated Plato for his aspiration to apply philosophy (ethical and otherwise) to practical matters.

    I can only imagine his seething hatred for Aristotle.

    holy shit I literally read this for the first time, exactly a week ago.

    had anyone seen the Reanimator movie?
    or has everyone just seen the song and nothing else?
    I'd be dying to know if its terrible trash or worth a laugh.
