Send lawyers to hell

Normally we try to stay as apolitical as possible, however this seemed pretty fun. DavidXNewton, a Youtube video game commenter and all around swell guy has a series on his channel called “David Does Doom”. With the goings on in the news recently, he’s started to ask for donations on his channel. Said donations will be amassed and handed off to RAICES to aid in the border immigration problem, AND will be matched by his employer. So as he’s going to be playing Sandy Peterson’s (creator of Call of Cthulhu) own Doom and has promised us some Cthulhu levels as well; I give you (direct link with donation link and handy chart of how much has been given already:

Origins Game Fair 2018 (We’re not there)

It’s that time of year again folks! Origins Game Fair is under full swing. If you’re there you can check out Rogue Cthulhu, Chaosium or the great merchants. Once again however, we’re not there. You will find us in the onsite book (again), but we’re not there. Again.  That’s all for now, and look forward to Origins 2019 when we make this announcement again. Just like 2017, and 2016.

We were there in 2014 & 2015 though.. alas they screwed up the onsite book and no one knew about our awesome games so we quit coming.  2016, 2017 and 2018 they screwed up listing us in the onsite book so we’re still not coming back.

Lovecraft Country

Lovecraft Country
By Matt Ruff

With Peele of Key & Peele/Get Out fame creating an HBO exclusive miniseries based off Matt Ruff’s Lovecraft country, we decided it is a great opportunity to review the book here.  Lovecraft Country follows the adventures of a black family from Chicago during the height of Jim Crow through an interconnected anthology, with each story building on the previous and working together beautifully.  In the book, Lovecraft himself is a known author, so we depart from the standard Mythos that we see in most Cthulhu Mythos stories, akin to the way Charles Stross openly mocks Lovecraft in his short story Equoid.  That said, however, the stories are in fact quite Lovecraftian.

The Reunion

“She was fearless and crazier than him. She was his queen, and God help anyone who dared to disrespect his queen.”
–Amanda Lawler from the film “Suicide Squad” 2016. Romanticizing and normalizing an oft-potentially fatal abusive relationship of codependence and Stockholm syndrome

TRIGGER WARNING: This scenario deals with matters of abuse, psychological predation and has no happy ending. No matter what, the PC’s cannot save the day, stop the madness or have any sort of victory, even pyrrhic. They are merely unknowingly hopping on the merry-go-round in hell for a few spins and hopping off, left to deal with what they have seen. Not all stories have a happy ending, and not all are about you. The players will be creeping into a very personal and eternal hell for a couple. Some people are just damned, and still others don’t even deserve their damnation. This is one of those cases. Continue reading »
